After visiting the Vandiver Inn and seeing the beauty and comfort in person, I fell in love with the idea of having our wedding there. Everything went perfectly with the help of our event planner Theresa! She made sure that the 2 days we spent there (for the rehearsal dinner and wedding) was flawless. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the cozy rooms throughout the inn. As the bride & groom, we didn't have to worry about anything for those 2 days as it was all taken care of!Sent on 02/07/2018

Such a beautiful location and amazing staff at Vandiver!
We were amazed with how convenient Vandiver Inn was, with how inclusive all of their services were. The mansion is a beautiful bed & breakfast that our family had for the entire evening, night and were even provided breakfast the next morning. The provided food for the reception, a delicious menu with such a variety! The bacon wrapped scallops were only a sampling of the amazing chooses we had. Liz, our coordinator, handled everything for us on the big day and the months leading up until. She did an incredible job and we're confident that we wouldn't have been able to get things setup without her. Vandiver pulled double-duty for us, as a venue for our ceremony and our reception. We were able to mingle throughout the house during cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception while things were flipped and setup. Super convenient! Such a hassle free wedding and we felt zero stress about the day and getting prepared. It was so beautiful and perfect. Liz even made sure we had some food and cake waiting in our room at the end of the night in case we were hungry again! Thank you so much Vandiver and all those working behind the scenes we didn't get to meet!Sent on 01/17/2019

Vandiver Inn was the first and only place that we looked at when we started our venue search because we knew we didn't need to look any further. Vandiver has everything you need all-in-one!Sent on 10/26/2018
The staff have been nothing short of amazing and very responsive. Theresa was so sweet and worked with us to make our day successful. Everything ran smooth and on-time without any problems. We had made white pumpkin centerpieces with a range of purple, teal, and white flowers and foliage coming out of the top and I didn't even THINK to do what she did and have them line the ceremony chairs down the aisle. That was a pleasant surprise! Thank you so much Theresa!! You thought of allllll the little details the day of and made everything perfect!
