They gave us the perfect wedding at a great price, such a beautiful venue. Living out of state, I couldn't have had it any easier. With everything included and the planning done for me I couldn't have asked for more. :)

I had several things I needed to change throughout the wedding process from the time that I booked the venue and they were always so willing to accommodate my changes. I had them do all my decorations, food, cake and photography and am so pleased with the results! My cake looked exactly like the picture I sent them and tasted great as well! They do a great job with keeping you on schedule for how you wanted your wedding day to go so that things don't get forgotten in the shuffle as it is a very hectic day.

Our wedding at Hitching Post was truly the best day of our lives! Wendy and her staff decorated and made our wedding what we had always envisioned. Wendy responds to all emails and planning very quickly and helps arrange and organize anything you need. Our theme was burlap and lace with a rustic theme and Wendy noted my vision and decorated the most beautiful wedding. There was brilliant sunshine on our day but it was also the coldest day of the year so Wendy even helped arrange an extra tent and heaters to make the reception more comfortable. I highly recommend having your wedding at the 1812 Hitching Post!

If you want a worry-free wedding, this is the venue for you. Lots of choices on food, decorations, etc. The wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. It was nice to come and enjoy the day and then leave, without having to clean-up. We were blessed with beautiful weather, but it is nice to know if there is rain, they have a huge tent and the wedding will still go on as planned. I can't speak highly enough of our experience with this venue.

I would like to tell anyone considering the 1812 Hitching post for your wedding to look else where. We had a beautiful wedding even though Wendy tried to ruin it. She is a rude,nasty racist person. She will make everything seem like its going to be the best ever until you sign her contract and get your money. Then everything changes she did nothing the whole time we were planning the wedding. I will tell the world this is not the place to get married. There is no value in what she provides (which is nothing). All she cares about is money.She will probably take this down because she doesn't want people to no the real truth but I will repost and repost how foul and shallow of a person she really is. She was rude to our guest and to us. So thank you Wendy for nothing but bad memories at the plantation. But through it all our bond is stronger then ever and you can’t stop that. Thanks again for nothing I will let everyone I know to never do business with you.

The 1812 Hitching Post and Wendy gave us the perfect wedding day. Planning the event was a breeze and Wendy was very flexible to what we wanted. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, the flowers were in full bloom and everything was green and vibrant. Unfortunately it was a bit rainy on our day but it didnt slow things down at all and our pictures somehow reflect a beautiful day. Couldn't be more pleased with the overall experience!!

I wanted an all-inclusive wedding venue that was beautiful and affordable. 1812 Hitching Post Farm was the perfect venue. The house and grounds are gorgeous. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how lovely the location was and how great the wedding and reception were.

Wendy and staff exceeded our expectations. From the first contact up through the wedding day, Wendy responded promptly to every request. Although she was working with additional clients, she made me feel as if I were her only client. She was very flexible as I kept making changes up until a couple weeks before the wedding.

My event was small with only 12 guests. Our package included a "mini" reception with cake and beverages, but since all our guests were from out of town, we wanted to offer more than "just" cake. (By the way, the cake tasted great and looked beautiful -- just like I had pictured it. Patrick made my vision a reality.) Wendy tailored the package to meet OUR requests. We worked with an outside caterer (Salem Kitchen), and Wendy handled the rest -- the buffet, the reception tables, all decorated in our colors of course.

All of my planning was made long distance, and other than the website photos, I never saw anything until I pulled into the driveway minutes before my wedding. The wedding and reception ran smoothly, no glitches. Wendy helped create my dream wedding at a budget price. I can't imagine a better experience, and highly recommend the Hitching Post for your wedding.

I wanted an all-inclusive wedding venue that was beautiful and affordable. 1812 Hitching Post Farm was the perfect venue. The house and grounds are gorgeous. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how lovely the location was and how great the wedding and reception were.

Wendy and staff exceeded our expectations. From the first contact up through the wedding day, Wendy responded promptly to every request. Although she was working with additional clients, she made me feel as if I were her only client. She was very flexible as I kept making changes up until a couple weeks before the wedding.

I am going to begin my experience with 1812HP like this. I am nothing but amazed and astounded of how gorgeous and amazing the 1812HP is along with it’s owners. . I am not going to talk junk about how my day was ruined or what went wrong. I will however give you the highlights and play by play.

I can tell you this, this place speaks for itself. Wendy is amazing! The house is gorgeous and it definitely takes you back to the 1800's the moment you step in the door. To the wood floors throughout and antique rugs, to the wood staircase that takes you up to the bridal room,or the stone floor in the kitchen that wraps around to the buffet area. The property has nothing but beautiful 100+ year old trees all around the farm, along with blooming tree’s, to tree's getting ready for the fall. If you are looking for an amazing venue and gorgeous surroundings this is the place!

Wendy worked with us from the colors of our overlays, to the flowers in the mason jars that lined the aisle’s. For her to go into great detail of the centerpieces for our tables and reception area, with bundles of twine hanging from above. She took my ideas of my colors and she intertwined everything to flow together so perfectly. I gave her an idea of a Rustic Wedding, and she ran with it. I didn't even know what anything looked like till I drove up the driveway on my weddiny day! Wendy made it a story book fairy tale wedding!

There is nothing I can really say about our photos. They honestly speak for themselves! If you don’t believe me take a look at the amazing job that Wendy did on our day under Michelle and Jeremy’s October wedding. I have been told by so many people who were at the wedding and those who didn’t make it that our pictures are breathtaking. Wendy and her staff made everything so seamless as if this is something they do in their sleep.
Wendy and her Husband are AWESOME at what they do! My day that I will remember for the rest of my life could not have gone any better.

Wendy and the staff of the 1812 Hitching Post helped create my dream wedding. It was so nice to not have to worry about details like food, tables, ceremony set-up, and to be able to have the ceremony and reception in the same location. Wendy took all of the little details I asked for and brought them to life, and made my wedding so unique, even though they have several weddings a week there. I am so happy I decided to have my wedding there!

As mother of the bride I did not have to do hardly anything. Everything was absolutely provided that we asked for, even when we had the bridal pictures taken I had forgotten to pick up the bouquet and they picked it up for me so I wouldn't have to miss out on watching my daughter on such a fun day. Any questions we had or requests, they made it happen. We had the best wedding and our guests could not stop talking about it. It was the most memorable time of our lives thanks to everyone at 1812 hitching Post!

The 1812 Hitching Post and Wendy Waldron are amazing! First of all, before you even get to the wedding, or even close, Wendy is at your side! I know she is extremely busy, but you will never once feel that way! The best part about the Hitching Post is Wendy, she is an amazing woman who make you feel like the sky is the limit, that anything you envision for your wedding she can make happen. She never made us feel that we could not do what we wanted, and was very concerned with making our wedding not only a possiblity through flexible payment arrangments, but also making it personal. She ensured that our wedding was made for us, and on the day, that is exactly what it felt like. Wendy and her staff are amazing at making your vision a reality, but also rescuing you when things go wrong, and trust me they will! But even with the hiccups, I never felt like there were any differences. Wendy's elegance and gracious nature made me calm and content with how things would turn out and they were perfect. We absolutely loved the hitching post and wendy, we had so much fun at such a gorgeous place, we cannot imagine having had our wedding at any other place! It was perfect! Thanks Wendy!

Wendy and her staff were wonderful. I had family coming from out of state and this place was so convenient. We had planned an outdoor ceremony but due to rain and unusually cold day the ceremony had to be moved indoors, Wendy called that morning to tell me he plans. When I
Got there they had done an amazing job moving the ceremony indoors and made it look beautiful. my guest commented on how great the food was. Wendy mades sure that my husband a I led the buffet line and her staff catered to my husband an I the whole time. The cake was beautiful and tasted great. Wendy also did my bridal pics and we had some on display for my wedding and the guest all complimented them. Our wedding was very intimate about 50 guest, I think this is the perfect place for any size wedding. We had looked at several places before, but we booked as soon as we visited. We loved it and could not have made a Bette decision.

Due to a busy schedule I had to plan my wedding from a distance, but I knew from my first contact with Wendy that she was organized and experienced and could be trusted. She was always available by email and was very flexible.

This is the perfect venue for getting married outdoors in North Carolina, if she doesn't provide the service herself she has suggestions for trustworthy vendors who do (ie: limo, flowers, hotel, etc).

The day came off perfectly, it felt like a dream, and it was so nice to see all of the details I had dreamed of around me. As the day drew closer I was thankful to have someone else coordinating and "running interference" for me so I could just enjoy my day. Her staff are extremely professional and I can honestly say "nothing went wrong" that day.

Everyone at the 1812 Hitching Post was extremly friendly and helpful. We had a specific style that we were set on our wedding turning out. Wendy and her team hit it right on the head!And created exactly the look we were going for! The food was amazing and we got lots and lots of compliments from our guests on how impressed they were with everything. I was a little dissapointed with the formal pictures because we forgot our "must- have photos list" and missed out on many pictures we really wanted because we didnt remember them all at that point and time. I would suggest making sure this list is distributed to wendy and her photographers long before the ceremony that way if they are lost or forgotten the results will not suffer since you cannot go back and re-do any of these pictures.
As with any wedding there are minor glitches here and there. Wendy and her team did a wonderful job keeping track of so many details but with changing my song to enter to the week of , they wound up being some confusion and the wrong one played. Not a huge deal and wendy was able to make sure the correct song was overlayed on top of hte original audio for our video :). Even though there were minor details i was sad got messed up, wendy went above and beyond post wedding to edit pictures, adjust mistakes and make sure i was truly satisfied with everything involving my wedding day!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with wendy and her team and they did an amazing job! They were so fantastic and i would highly recommend them to any couple! Just remember to have all bases covered ahead of time!

Everyone at the 1812 Hitching Post was extremly friendly and helpful. We had a specific style that we were set on our wedding turning out. Wendy and her team hit it right on the head!And created exactly the look we were going for! The food was amazing and we got lots and lots of compliments from our guests on how impressed they were with everything. I was a little dissapointed with the formal pictures because we forgot our "must- have photos list" and missed out on many pictures we really wanted because we didnt remember them all at that point and time. I would suggest making sure this list is distributed to wendy and her photographers long before the ceremony that way if they are lost or forgotten the results will not suffer since you cannot go back and re-do any of these pictures.

My Wedding Day Was May 7th, 2011. My Husband And I Got Married At The 1812 Hitching Post. It Was The Wedding Of My Dreams. As The Bride, You May Think That The Day Will Be Very Stressful, But I Can Tell You From Experience, Having My Wedding At The Hitching Post Was ANYTHING BUT That. Everything That I Asked For Was Taken Care Of. I Don't Remember Being Stressed One Bit. I Was Able To Enjoy My Day Without Worrying About Anything. Wendy & Her Staff Made My Dreams A Reality. If I Wanted Something That Wendy Didn't Have, She Got It For Me. The Decorations That I Wanted Were Perfect. I Chose A Picture Of The Cake That I Wanted And Sent It To Them. The Cake Decorator Is Amazing. He Matched The Picture To My Cake Perfectly. The DJ Was Amazing. He Really Made Me Feel Special And Like My Opinon Was The Only One That Mattered. The Food Was More Than Good. ! I've Heard Stories From Other Brides That They Didn't Get To Eat The Day Of Their Wedding, But Not Us!! Wendy And Her Staff Made Sure My Husband & I Were The First Ones In Line!!! I Think The BEST Thing About The Whole Thing Was That After My Husband & I Said Our Goodbyes And Left....Our Parents Got To Do The Same. They Didn't Have To Stay Afterwards And Clean Anything. They Didn't Have To Take Down Chairs Or Tables. All They Had To Do Was Get In Their Cars And Drive Home.
Thank You Wendy & Staff For Making My Day A Memory Forever.

Wendy was an absolutely DREAM to work with! Both my husband and I are military stationed outside of NC, and were only able to meet with Wendy once before the wedding. However Wendy made planning everything remotely extremely easy, and was quickly responsive both by email and by phone. The venue is beautiful, the DJ & food were both fantastic, and the price for everything was way better than anything I could ever have found elsewhere. Wendy made our dream wedding happen, in a very short period of time, and I can't recommend this venue enough to anyone who's considering it!

A great big “Thank You” goes out to Wendy and her staff at the 1812 Hitching Post. She and her team did a phenomenal job in making our day so very special and memorable for us and all of our friends and family.

I knew that the Hitching Post was the place for us when a patient of mine recommended it and said, “the wedding coordinator (Wendy) is extremely organized and on top of things and takes care of it ALL for you”. Location is always important for a wedding, but for me the person who would be in charge of the whole event mattered just as much as the setting. My “Type A”, controlling, and obsessive personality makes it hard for me to release the reins and let someone else run the show. Wendy never missed a beat and made me feel confident in her skills immediately. She answered every question and email promptly (and some days I sent several), making wonderful suggestions along the way and erasing all of my concerns. Her caring personality, positive attitude, and true desire to make our wedding special warmed my heart. Thanks to Wendy, I can honestly say that I never gave a single thought on my wedding day to any of the details I would normally be stressing over. I entrusted the entire day to her and her team, and it was better than we could have ever imagined. She puts her heart and soul into every bride and groom and takes a personal interest in every wedding she hosts. I think this is how she is able to make the day so personal and special for each couple. She truly is very gifted at her job and she is what makes the Hitching Post such an ideal place to get married.

As for the food, cake, decorations, music, and grounds….everything was perfect! Our family and friends have nothing but warm and positive things to say about it all. I think that everyone who attended experienced a caring and loving atmosphere from the attentiveness demonstrated by Wendy and her staff. There was definitely an ambiance of happiness and togetherness that belongs at a wedding. Cheers to Wendy and her team for making everyone feel welcome and have such a wonderful time! It was truly a dream come true for Todd and I and the memories will forever be will all of us who attended.

The wedding was for my daughter. Since she was getting married in North Carolina and I live in California the logistics seemed impossible until we found 1812 Hitching Post. Wendy planned and supplied almost everything except the clothing. It all went without a hitch even though things were changed many times. A few days before the wedding we changed flower orders for the fourth time. The setting is wonderful, the pictures captured some very intiment moments, the food and cake was great and all at a huge savings. She also gives a military discount which really helped and arranged the rehearsal around the groom's duty assignments. Wendy was easy to work with and had a lot of good ideas which really helped me because I have never planned anything like this.

WE DID ENGAGEMENT, BOUDIOR, AND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY. IT WAS A VERY RELAXED ENVIRONMENT TO BE IN. I WAS ABLE TO JUST GIVE PICTURES AND IDEAS AND THEY MADE IT WORK TO SUIT OUR BIG DAY.

BUT, I MUST SAY, OUR FOOD WAS AMAZING, OUR CAKE WAS EVEN BETTER, THE AREA IS BEAUTIFUL, AND IT IS ALL BASED ON WHAT YOU AS THE COUPLE WANT.

Wendy was available for me through phone, email, Facebook, and mail, I do not know of any wedding planners that enthusiastic to help out her brides.

I was blow away by the prices they offered for the packages and how flexible the payment plans were.

When I first met Wendy she came right out to the car to give me a hug and show me everything she could do for me. We looked at albums, different decorations, linens, and she completely listened to everything I suggested and gave helpful hints!

When I first met the DJ I was blown away by his behavior; but then Wendy explained he was her son and most of the people she does her business with are either close friends or family- which turned into POSITIVE thinking for me; because NO ONE wants to hear the DJ did not show up or the decorator forgot the decor the day of her wedding; her family connections helped, Wendy was able to call their personal numbers and have things totally changed in a heartbeat!

I had my wedding OUTDOORS in May fearful of the rain; but Wendy assured me that they could get a tent day of, slight sprinkles but nothing more. The accommodations, music, decor, staff, food, cake, services promised, everything was amazing!

I WOULD DO IT AGAIN THANK YOU 1812 HITCHING POST!

It was a phenomenal value! We were on a very tight budget and we feel we experienced one , if not, the most beautiful weddings ever. It was intimate, and elegant, yet enjoyable and confortable for everyone involved!

Wendy and the staff at the 1812 Hitching Post are very easy to work with and make planning a wedding nearly stress-free. They seem to strive to make your day very personal, which is what a wedding should be about. Also, I had to do most of my wedding planning while I was living and working overseas and Wendy was very responsive and thorough via email. So all the early stages of planning my wedding went very smoothly(as did the final touches, once I was back home). I have no regrets about choosing the Hitching Post, would recommend them, and have wonderful wedding memories as a result of using them.

From the moment we first visited the 1812 Hitching Post, we knew we had found the perfect place to get married. Wendy guided us along every step of the way and I was able to relax and not stress too much before the wedding. The wedding day was everything we had hoped for and more. So many of our guests have complimented the wedding site and how smoothly things went. One of our favorite things was definitely the cake!! It looked so beautiful and it was absolutely delicious! We also thought that the DJ was really good. He tracked down some of our more difficult song selections and played everything that we'd asked for and with perfect timing too.

My husband and I still talk about how happy we are with how our wedding turned out! Wendy did an excellent job making sure everything matched our taste and was elegant. Her photography skills are excellent. She also was my photographer for my bridal portraits prior to the wedding. Her husband, Patrick, makes the cakes and helps with the catering. He drew a sketch of what he was envisioning for our wedding cake after I emailed him a description of what I would like. He did a marvelous job! I always smile when I think back to how lovely and unique our cake was. The 1812 Hitching Post truly is flexible and will work to meet your every request. I would recommend them to any future brides.
