Best Wedding Venue

Got married at The Wheeler House on May 12,2023. It was the best experience I could have ever asked for. Our wedding coordinator Madeline was on top of everything. She helped keep everything organized months leading up to the wedding and on the day of she made sure everything ran smoothly. Without her help it would have been a mess.

The day was more than I could have imagined. Thank you to The Wheeler House for having the venue of our dreams and being so communicative.

The Most Perfect Day

This was my dream venue and it was nothing short of wonderful and perfect!! Eden was an absolute gem to work with and she made the experience so special and easy. Her attention to detail and genuine care to ensure that my day went off without a hitch was unmatched. I did/made a lot of the decor myself preparing up to the day, and she made sure everything was in its place and that any necessary adjustments with vendors was immediately addressed. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and even better than I imagined, and I absolutely contribute that to her!! 馃馃

The Perfect Venue

The Wheeler House was a dream! The wedding planning process can be so draining but the team here made things so much easier. Their vendors are AMAZING! The outside ceremony site is so beautiful and the reception area inside the barn is dreamy. I cannot recommend this venue enough!
