    Gorgeous Venue

    Working with Jennifer was so easy and she is so sweet.

    My fiancé and I used the Root Cellar. Because of the pandemic, we drastically cut our guest size down and the space didn’t feel empty.

    The Cellar is gorgeous and doesn’t need much decor (Some greenery and flowers on the mantles and wooden tables). We just let the architecture and the house’s natural history shine.

    We decided to use the bridal suite. It is also stunning and made the entire getting ready experience so special.

    You will not be disappointed with Woodruff and Jennifer.
