    The most beautiful venue, with amazing service

    This venue is absolutely stunning! It will add so much beauty to your wedding photos. There are many different places you can have the ceremony and reception, you can choose whatever is most fitting and beautiful to you.
    Having my wedding at this venue took away so much stress because so many things are right there, you don't have to haul everything the day of the wedding.
    They have tables, chairs, table cloths, decor, ect. everything you would need, available to rent.
    Jessica and her team where so helpful on my wedding day. They set up all the tables and chairs, they helped set up wherever they were needed.
    You also get a list of all the food trucks, caterers, MCs, etc. so if you don't have anyone in mind yet, they have people to recommend!
    The girls prep room is stunning with an amazing amount of space and mirrors. There is a bathroom and half kitchen attached so you can put snacks, water, food somewhere as you get ready.
    The men also have a fun space in the upstairs of the barn to get ready in. There is a TV lounge area for them so they won't get bored.
    Having the ceremony and reception together is so much less hassle and is so perfect.
    Everything you need for a wedding is right there or can be recommended to you.
    It is a perfect place for a beautiful wedding.
    White Chimneys made my wedding perfect. I loved meeting up with Jessica as we figured out the details.

    The best!!!

    We had the very best experience with White Chimneys! Besides the venue being absolutely beautiful (no seriously, I lost my breath the first time Jessica opened the fence doors to the garden), the staff is great and really allows you to customize your ceremony and reception however you want it. Jessica was wonderful from start to finish and was always kind, helpful & always willing to answer our questions. Our day of coordinator Patty was fantastic. She was so on the ball with keeping everything organized and running smoothly. She really helped us feel at ease on the big day, which is so reassuring when there’s so many moving parts. We got tons and tons of compliments on how beautiful everything was from our guests too! Would recommend White Chimneys over and over again!
