The woman who works with weddings, Jennifer Cooper was amazing. She was very flexible with us. We used the front lawn for the ceremony and the back garden for the reception. Everything was perfect and we didn't need to do much to decorate because it is already beautiful as is. The property was great for beautiful photos. There were two great areas for both bridal and groom parties to get ready on-site as well.Sent on 11/10/2015

The Woodruff-Fontaine House is a beautiful setting for a wedding and reception. Our ceremony was held on the front steps of the home, cocktails in the garden, and the reception in the Club Rooms (Basement of the house). The Club Rooms are very intimate and have gorgeous stain glass windows throughout. There is also another space, the Carriage House, to have a reception which is a bit more open. The restored home has so much charm and beauty that decorating is almost unnecessary. Susan Morgan was wonderful to work with and did anything and everything that was needed. She went above and beyond to make sure that we had a wonderful time. I would highly suggest this location as it is beautiful, a great location, and the best deal in town!Sent on 11/04/2009
