Gorgeous ceremony and reception venue

My husband and I are so happy we chose to be married at Hoover Hall! The outdoor patio is the perfect ceremony site complete with waterfall, string lights and beautiful landscaping. The hall is gorgeous also - rustic but convenient with indoor bathrooms and prep kitchen, unlike some barns we looked at. You have the run of the grounds which gives you access to many great photo sites, including a covered bridge and the Hoover House. Lori and Jackie are great and easy to work with and the food is delicious.
