I really can't adequately put into words how PERFECT & seamless our wedding day/wedding process was because of Cedar Hall's staff. The venue grounds are drop dead gorgeous and I instantly fell in love with the place during my first visit. The venue manager is amazing, so kind, and extremely professional. All of my questions were eagerly/promptly answered and everything you need to know is laid out in the contract. There are absolutely no hidden fees. The food was amazing and all of our guests also complimented our food selection and the delicious taste of our food and beverage choices. I also can't say enough kind words about the wedding coordinator. The coordinator was so calm, kind, and level-headed. All wedding details were executed as desired and truth be told, the staff went above and beyond all of my wildest expectations. I will forever treasure the memories I shared with my loved ones in that BEAUTIFUL venue, more importantly, all staff members were incredible and made it their priority to ensure that all individuals were having a fun, stress-free time. I will always highly recommend this venue to all of my friends and family members. I had the very best day!
Cedar Hall is absolutely beautiful!!! I loved everything about it! The staff is amazing and so helpful! I am so glad I picked Cedar Hall to have my wedding and I would highly recommend it to everyone!
There were so many awesome things about Cedar Hall that I'm not really sure where to begin.... So I'm just going to ramble through things as they pop to my mind! :) First, don't be scared that you can't taste the food! Everyone RAVED about how awesome, warm, and flavorful everything was. Go low on the alcohol number because you can't take the extra with you. Regardless of how many emails you send, Micah, Noel, and Stacy are ALWAYS going to be happy to help you. They are literally AMAZING! You're wedding coordinator will be a PRO. I mean seriously Carol was the woman and everything about the rehearsal, ceremony, and rehearsal was better than I expected. Our two huge floral arrangements for the ceremony blew over before and I had NO idea until we were heading into the reception. They were ninja quick, got everything cleaned up, and used the flowers throughout the barn like they were supposed to be there. Eat in the house after your ceremony... you will definitely appreciate the time being away from your guest and actually being able to eat. Get the votive candles and holders from Hobby Lobby! It stinks having to buy so many (we got 144) but if you catch them 50% off its worth it. I mean seriously the look of the venue under candle light is AMAZING! From the incredible grounds, the amazing main house, and the gorgeous stable, you seriously can't go wrong with Cedar Hall. The staff is incredible and so helpful and I promise you will not have to worry about anything on your wedding day. Thank you to the Cedar Hall staff - Micah, Noel, Stacy, and Carol - for making our wedding day PERFECT! We couldn't have picked a better venue for our perfect southern wedding.
Cedar Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding! The venue is beautiful, the staff are great and easy to work with, and all of our guest raved about the food! Carol was so great at her job of wedding planning. She covered all of the details I wouldn't have even thought of! The grounds and house are so picturesque. It is also a pretty affordable options because Cedar Hall includes so much in the price!
We absolutely loved having our wedding here! They did so much for us, so we didn't have to worry about anything. The stables for the reception was the most beautiful thing I could have imagined, and the outside ceremony was wonderful (the weather cooperated). If we needed any extras for the ceremony, it was almost guaranteed that they had what we needed (basket for programs, easle for a sign, etc), and they let us just use it for no extra cost (reception extras, such as table overlays and plate chargers were extra, but that was expected). Carol, the day-of coordinator, was so organized, and knew how to let the day flow. We had a time set for cake cutting, but she came up and asked if it was okay to push it back, since everyone was having such a good time dancing. It helped everthing run smoothly, rather than jumping from one thing to the next.
I had my wedding last Friday at Cedar Hall and it was absolutely amazing. Micah, Stacey, and all the staff were so helpful and easy to work with throughout the engagement process and the day-of. The most phenomenal aspect of our Cedar Hall experience was our wedding coordinator, Carol. Without her I know the day would have been much more stressful! She took care of so much throughout the day and was so genuine, making sure everything ran smoothly. I would 100% recommend Cedar Hall. They made our wedding day that much dreamier :)
All the ladies at Cedar Hall were very sweet, helpful, and gracious throughout the entire planning process! Also, they prepared a beautiful reception for my husband and me. We are so excited that we chose Cedar Hall for our reception venue! They went way beyond our dreams!
We held our wedding here earlier this month and I can't say enough good things about it! The property is absolutely stunning. From the gorgeous historic home (with SO many photo options!) to the meticulously manicured grounds, it is absolutely perfect. There are indoor options and outdoor options for the ceremony, and the Stables is a stunning reception space that really wowed our guests. I barely had to do any decorating because the property is so ornate and natural beautiful. The staff is also wonderful and very accommodating! We were coming from California to get married here, and they did everything possible to make this a stress-free experience! From the moment we stepped onto the property, we knew this was where we had to get married, and I'm so thankful we decided to start our life together at Cedar Hall!
