A few weeks ago my husband and I were lucky enough to visit The Preserve with our photographer to do an "after the big day" photo session- and it was truly an unforgettable experience! The grounds are breathtaking and venue even more so. It is private and secluded, which is... Read More EXACTLY what we wanted. It is such a beautiful place ! What made the experience even better was the staff- from the minute we arrived until the minute we left, the staff was literally "at our service" . They were so accommodating and friendly! We cannot say enough about how lovely this place is and we hope to visit again soon :)

THEY ARE AMAZING!! From our very first meeting to our very special day, Kim from the Perserve was amazing. I truly can not say enough good things about this venue. I was fully educated on prices and what they offer before i ever signed anything. Kim became a friend to me and my... Read More mom and would get married there a million times over. She responded to my emails/calls within a few hours every single time. I was able to go in the day before and set up. The grounds are pristine and absolutely gorgeous.

I don't know where to begin to explain the pure joy that this hidden piece of heaven offered my husband and I for our wedding venue. I discovered the Preserve at Boulder Hills while searching wedding venues on line. I was excited about what the pictures had to offer and... Read More shortly after viewing them I booked an appointment to tour the place. We absolutely loved it, and actually booked before we were even engaged just to be able to reserve the date we wanted. We were sure that our venue search would end here because this place was perfect for us! Not only were the grounds breathtakingly beautiful, but the friendly staff here made us feel very comfortable, as if we were part of the Preserve family! They were accommodating, patient, friendly, kind, and ready to do everything they could to make our wedding day as special as we had dreamed it would be, and that it absolutely was! Months later our guests are still talking about our wedding and how beautiful it was. The ambiance, staff, food, the Preserve is everything it appears to be and much more! We could not have been any more satisfied than we are and will forever be grateful for the memories that this incredible wedding venue made possible for us. This place is simply the best!!
