    TH 1854 - Intimate Wedding Review

    There aren't enough words to describe my wedding at The Homestead 1854 last Friday. We booked with TH 1854 without ever setting foot at the venue since my husband and I are located on the east coast and we were planning this all remotely in light of the pandemic. My husband and I were looking for a venue that could do it 'ALL' to streamline the process. Honestly, I spent 3 months of countless emails to various venues along the East Coast looking for this perfect venue and often times found that most venues could and only do some things and not all. And we'd have to outsource the remaining aspects. Not something I want to add onto my pile. We ended up selecting TH 1854 because of their reasonable price and all inclusive package. Not only did we have an all inclusive package, but we had the opportunity to also upgrade and customize to our taste. Other previous places that I also reached out too lacked this ability (kinda here's the package and it is what it is). But with TH 1854, it was a completely different experience! Everything was included from the wedding site, reception site, officiant, meals with alcohol beverage package, flowers, cake, and photography. We even booked the add on package for TH 1854 overnight for our guests (for 12 ppl max) after the wedding and the brunch morning after. This is a MUST DO!!! Our wedding was only 14 people including bridge and groom and it was so intimate and cozy. We had the ceremony followed by the reception. The ceremony was perfect and exactly what we visioned and Amy did such a great job officiating and lining to our desires. The reception was also so beautiful and intimate. Our guests had cocktail hour at the house and the dinner was under the Timber Tent. The cocktail hour allowed guests to explore the beautiful historic house. The timber tent had more space for guests to move around a bit, and it was so warm and toasty! The food was delicious with healthy portion sizes! We did filet mignon and salmon with grilled shrimp and mash potatoes + green beans. Our cake was a customized vanilla with fruit filling with added 2nd tier. We had sent a vision and image of our ideal cake and when I saw it in person--I was so overjoyed! It looked exactly what I envisioned, but better in person!! It was delicious too! After dinner was over, our guests were able to retreat back into the house and change into cozy and comfy clothes. We then hung out in the back by the firepitt and toasted smores. Shared stories. It was so beautiful for our families meeting for the first time to be with each other and feel like they've know each other for years! It was such a fitting and intimate way to cap the night off. The next morning, we had brunch scheduled at 9.30am so guests had the chance to sleep in if they wanted to or soak in the quietness and relax for an early morning. Brunch was perfect and the food, again, was so delicious! We had roasted potatoes, bacon, egg type souffle, yogurt parfait, and this caramel french toast with mimosas! My guests LOVED our wedding and they felt so relaxed. They were raving and telling us how much they enjoyed the intimacy, but how it also felt like a retreat and get away too! We can't thank Mary Kay, Amy, and the rest of TH 1854 staff. They really made this process so EASY and took care of ALL the details and more! I personally tell my husband that I wish I could get married again so we can repeat the whole weekend w/ TH 1854! Thank you TH 1854!

    My four day stay was fabulous from the day I arrived to the day I left. The whole place is clean, beautiful, interesting with the best food ever.

    The Homestead is beautiful, immaculate, full of antiques and 1800 era decor. I spent a lot of my time going thru the wonders of each room, and the gorgeous surrounding lawns and gardens, including a real shrubbery maze. Mary Kate and Chet are wonderful, fun loving couple, who make you feel so welcome that you feel like one of their family while they see to your every need. I highly recommend the Homestead for just a stay or any special event in your future. I know they are both waiting for your arrival with a smile on their face.

    We appreciate your kind words and look forward to seeing you and your family again. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

    Words cannot accurately express how wonderful Mary Kay, her husband and her staff made my wedding day. The bed and breakfast is immaculately decorated and the grounds are breathtaking. During my planning period, Mary Kay answered every email I send within hours. She was so helpful and her attitude caused any anxiety I may have had to subside. The day of my wedding went better than I could have imagined. My guests were speechless at how amazing the venue was and how wonderful the staff was. I can't thank The Homestead enough for the amazing memories they have provided me. It was a dream come true!
