    Perfect Antique Venue

    Vandiver was the perfect historic venue for us. Pricing is straight forward and clear, they handle catering, alcohol, set up, and take down. Liz was the perfect wedding day coordinator; she was so patient with my many questions and made sure everything was beautiful. I can't say enough good things!

    I will recommend the Vandiver over and over again!!!

    Let me just say, the value for the price of this gorgeous mansion is just amazing. The venue itself is quiet and quaint and maintained absolutely beautifully!! The food and the cake were delicious! They have so many options to chose from! Ashley was our wedding coordinator and she was a godsend. She put our decorations out, set everything up, made sure everything was just the way we wanted it. She made sure everything went to plan, kept us all calm and organized. Overall, it was the best day ever and the Vandiver made it fantastic!
