    Incredible!

    My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner at the White House and could not have been happier with it. Our guests are still talking about how much they loved the White House. Allison was so easy to plan our event with. She created our menus, hosted a beautiful happy hour in the garden, decorated the event space so elegantly and beautifully, and hosted a perfect rehearsal dinner. Her chef even made us a homemade cake that was DELICIOUS. We loved our rehearsal dinner at the White House and can't wait to go back for other events.

    A Dream Bridal Shower

    We hosted a bridal shower brunch at The White House and it was an absolute dream. Not only did Allison and her team create a custom menu but she also went above and beyond with the florals and helping to set up (and take down) the day of. We were so impressed with everything! If you are looking for an intimate, *delicious* venue to host an event, this is your place!
