    What a beautiful location to have a wedding! We held our ceremony under the big oak, and everything looked so gorgeous. Even pictures captured on cell phones came out amazing! The reception in the mule barn was just as amazing. Little decorating needed as it is lit up and spacious giving an awesome rustic appeal. The staff was great! They catered to my husband and I during the entire reception. And I can't say enough about Ms. Paula. Always available to answer questions, allows you to visit the property without hesitating, and made the whole process easy - without even having a rehearsal!!! We got so many compliments on how beautiful and fun our wedding was. I highly recommend!

    Absolutely outstanding. If you are looking for a venue that is gorgeous without a single decoration, this is the spot! It has an outdoor area near a beautiful oak tree for your ceremony and a gorgeous indoor area for the reception. It ended up raining on my wedding day, which ended up being no problem because there is a great covered outdoor space that was just as lovely as our originally planned spot by the tree. The staff here is 100% responsive and flexible.

    Gorgeous venue that all of our guests could not stop talking about! It was absolutely perfect for our rustic camping wedding theme.The grounds are covered in breathtaking live oaks and you even have the option to hold a ceremony outside under one of the gorgeous trees. Ms. Paula Mire, the wedding coordinator, is incredibly sweet and super helpful; she also answers any and all emails and calls very quickly. There were just a few things we would have liked to see done differently. When you first tour the venue (Ms. Paula was so helpful she let us tour 3 times for individual family members!) you get to see the fantastic old barn for the reception and then you get a tour of the grounds to see the optional ceremony space. Now, when we first toured we were shown this beautiful live oak right outside of the barn toward the carriageway area, and were told that this is where wedding ceremonies are held. On the day before the wedding when we found out that we weren't going to get married under that particular tree (rain the day before), one of the grounds keepers mentioned that they are rarely able to hold weddings under that exact tree. This is something we really wished would have been disclosed beforehand more in-depth. However, we rearranged the ceremony to an even grander oak right to the left of the plantation which was absolutely beautiful for pictures and truly a spectacular setting; my only hang up was how close to the road it was. A couple of other things would be that they don't provide any sort of speaker or PA system for either the ceremony or the reception; and you really don’t get enough time the day before to decorate. For more pluses: you really don’t have to decorate the barn for the reception all that much because it has so much natural beauty (a bride still wants more than 2 hours the day before to make sure everything is perfect, though). Overall, fantastic place to get married and our only complaints really are very minor and easy to maneuver around!
