Whitetail Country Estates is a gorgeous venue for a wedding and reception. The owner and all the staff are very accommodating and helpful. The Bridal Cottage and Lodge provide convenience and a one of a kind experience. We could not be happier with this venue.

My Fiance and I are from 2 different states and White Tail Country Estate was a great middle ground for our family's. As I was planing our wedding my fiance and I were currently stationed overseas. White Tail was truly wonderful in working with me over e-mail and over the phone for the preparations of the reception while I was working in a foreign country with a 14hr time difference. When we arrived to white tail it was truly beautiful the pictures do not due it justice. It is tucked away so there is no interference with other people or businesses. Our guests were taken away buy the water fountain front , the parking was easy and accessible. We rented limo golf carts and our guest had a blast driving the other members of the family the short distance to the barn. The bathrooms are up buy the parking and the golf carts made it easy for a group to shuttle up to use the bathroom and shuttle back down. We used the barn for the Reception, with the lights, quite surrounding area and the beauty of the decorations, natural wood and chandeliers it was truly romantic and beautiful. The DJ sat up in the barn loft which was fantastic because he could see everyone take request and he was out of the way so he did not take up main floor room. We were able to buy ice from white tail so we did not have to try and transfer ice on a hot day from a far out location. The staff came through half way through the reception to switch out trash bags so the trash receptacles were not over flowing this was a big help not to worry about it. The lay out of the food was perfect for our set up of less than 100 people with enough room for a dance floor and space to be out side if you wanted some out side air. This was truly a gorgeous area and a beautiful rustic romantic spot for any type of wedding. Our family and friends are still talking about our wedding and reception.
Thank you White Tail!
Blessings on your up coming wedding.
