    Our wedding at The Homestead

    My husband and I are so happy we had our wedding at The Homestead! Everything was so beautiful and perfect. Our coordinator Sandy Luthardt is an amazing woman who loves what she does and is damn good at her job! She was so professional and kind. She had an answer for all of our questions and a solution to any problem. The catering staff were also amazing! The Homestead is a beautiful place and we can't wait to go back!

    Amazing Venue to have your Wedding

    Phenomenal wedding venue!!! They had a day of coordinator built in without any extra fee, which made a huge difference between me being really stressed and taking my stress away. It was so nice to have our rooms all in the same place, a bar there, restaurants, etc for the weekend. They answered any and all questions I had and their staff made us feel so welcome and special on our day. They made things easy for us by having things mostly included! We recommend to have your wedding here hands down! We will be coming back to the Homestead hopefully every year, it鈥檚 that beautiful and we were treated that well!
