My daughter and son-in-law recently got married at Woodburn Plantation and even with some rain, the venue was beautiful and very accommodating! I enjoyed working with The Floral Shoppe and Roger Chapman created gorgeous flowers! The Boulevard Caterers were delicious! We highly recommend them all!

Woodburn Plantation was the perfect location for my southern wedding! Jackie was easy to work with and met me every time I asked! (which was many times) I was able to take my bridal shots there as well for no extra charge. My guests were wowed by the beauty of the home. The price was very affordable compared to other venues in the area. They were true professionals through and through. I even received my deposit back before I was even home from the honeymoon. The Woodburn made my wedding dreams come true!

I absolutly love this place. I searched and searched for the perfect place for my wedding and when I saw the carriage house, I was hooked. I had my wedding at Woodburn last Saturday and it is such a beautiful venue. All of my guests loved it and I know my pictures are going to be amazing. There are some restrictions due to the age of the property and the fact it is a museum but this is a wonderful place to have a wedding.
