Dream Wedding Venue
After getting engaged I knew I needed to do a lot of research and try to secure a wedding venue as soon as possible. After finding The Perry House I knew this was my dream venue. The location, the house, the outdoor space, the VIEWS - this was it!
My event coordinator, Susan, was very responsive and helpful from day one. Being a COVID bride meant dealing with a lot of unknowns and lots of changes in rules/restrictions. I'm so grateful that we were able to keep our original wedding date and that things went so smoothly and turned out to be the best day ever.
The hardest decisions to make were which food items to choose, as they were all so delicious! We ended up going with the tri tip and chicken roulade plated options and everyone complimented how good the food was! It was also nice that they also offered some vegan substitutes for some of our vegan guests!
Can't say enough good things about the most magical and wonderful day of my life - it wouldn't have been possible without the help from Susan and the rest of the staff at The Perry House and Events By Classic!Sent on 05/13/2021

I am not a huge wedding person, so when I got engaged I was very overwhelmed by all of the decisions that needed to be made and details to plan out. When I found the Perry House, I knew I had found the right place. Rosie was amazing at responding to emails and setting up a tour, and made the process easy throughout. We lived out of town and she was very flexible with food tasting, venue tour, and dealing with a whole bunch of my family members! The food was amazing, and I am still getting compliments regarding the set up and food. Outdoor and indoor spaces available to all guests so everyone was comfortable, and upstairs bridal suite was beautiful for pictures. Really nothing bad to say about this venue! highly recommend!Sent on 01/06/2020

We pulled it off! When we started planning our wedding almost one year ago we thought we had found our dream venue to host our 120 guests for a night to remember. As anyone reading this will know as 2020 progressed we became more and more familiar with living in a pandemic and the challenges that can provide. Once it became clear that there was no way we could host our wedding as we had originally intended; our event coordinator Amanda from the events by classic group could not have been more helpful providing us with options. She of course offered us a 2021 date should we choose to postpone, but instead we chose a different option she presented to us that would both make our guests feel safe to attend and satisfy our needs of a special day to remember. We held our ceremony at The Perry House followed by a small dinner reception in the beautiful courtyard at their sister venue the barns at cooper molera.
The perry house is such a beautiful location for a ceremony and I’m sure the reception there would have been great as well if we chose not to go to the barns. It was impossible for me not to shed a tear as my bride began her walk down the perry houses’s staircase.
Everything turned out so beautiful, and we all had such a wonderful time. The food and drinks provided by the events by classic group were stellar, and I could not speak any higher praises of Amanda, our event coordinator. She kept everything on schedule and really brought our dreams to life. If you, like we were, are on the fence about having a wedding in a covid world I hope my words help you find comfort in knowing that you will be well taken care of by the events by classic team at the barns or any of their other venues.Sent on 10/19/2020
The Perry House's reply:Thank you for the amazing review! Love the photos and cannot wait to see the rest. We understand that planning a wedding during a pandemic is extremely challenging. We truly appreciate your and Nikki’s resilience and flexibility, and the day was simply beautiful with two beautiful & different backdrops! Congratulations, wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

The Perry-Downer House is my new favorite venue. The renovation of this historic property was done with some much love--it shows in every detail. The easy floorplan and sweeping views are just two of the wonderful things I love about the Perry House. The food, the location and the people are all assets and I don't think that you can find a better venue for the price. I love the Perry-Downer House!
