Jennifer and her volunteer staff are absolutely Fantastic. With the pandemic slight modifications had to be made and she was very responsive on answering the questions regarding changes. We ended up using the Gingerbread House for photo booth due to rain and was amazing..Sent on 04/27/2021

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.Sent on 02/08/2021
