    Thomas House and Garden is a southern fairytale!

    My wife and I had a magical wedding and we were very happy with the efforts of Jessica and team to make our day as perfect as possible. The day of we just showed up and got ready. Jessica was absolutely wonderful to work with from planning, to the day of and was extremely accommodating with customizations and last minute changes. Flowers and decor were lovely. Jessica was just as excited as we were all day and it was great having her excitement around while we were getting ready and during all the photos thereafter.

    Jessica is also a talented photographer who made us feel at ease come photo time. During one of the photos, she says to me, “Derek, put your arms around your wife.” and it just kind of hit me at that moment, “WE’RE MARRIED!” The photos also turned out perfect. The house provided for a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony, it was the definition of southern charm. The garden portion of Thomas House and Garden could use a little work to create a truly magical wedding venue.

    Our day was a fairytale and we owe Jessica and Team our gratitude for making the day magical. If you’re planning a small ceremony, less than 50, you should seriously consider Thomas House and Garden, you will not be disappointed.
