I could go on and on and on about how much I love this venue, the staff, and Joel (the owner). We mostly worked with Joel who was absolutely amazing. He made us feel like family and went above and beyond on everything. For example, there were issues with my tablecloths a few days before the wedding, and Joel booked an appointment to have me pick out new ones a few days before the wedding. Joel also served as out wedding coordinator which was the best decision we ever made. We got to relax on the day of as the staff took care of all the details. There is absolutely no way that any other venue compares to this one--beautiful with stellar service. It would be a mistake not to book at the Preston Woodall House!

We selected the Preston Woodall House for its incredible staff. Yes, the house is historically stunning and it has a fantastic outdoor setting but the people of Preston Woodall is what made our wedding the event of the year. The owner, Joel Hurley, walked us through step by step of the wedding process to make our wedding a symbolic representation of both of us. Chief Brian and his staff displayed their art in the decadent food that they presented at every meal of our stay at the PWH. It was a pleasure and joy to watch Stephanie, event manager, in her element. She conducted a symphony with her irreplaceable staff that treated our guest like family and anticipated their every need. When 30 more people arrived than planned at our wedding and guest had taken over the table for my family, the PWH staff sprang into action rolling out and decorated an additional table before our grand entrance. My father-in-law is a retired, decorated military officer and in his own words “I felt like royalty”. He was thanked and shown the utmost respect for his dedication and service. A request we did not have to ask for. Our wedding was filled with untraditional surprises, personal touches and lots and lots of partying; we could not have done it without the amazing staff and venue at Preston Woodall. After the wedding our guests were surprised to find out how much we spent on the event, imagining it cost much more than it did. Thank you, Preston Woodall House, for giving my bride the wedding of her dreams and in the budget I fought so hard to keep. We love you!!

I only wish I could give more stars! The owners and staff of the Preston Woodall House are the definition of wedding professionals. My husband and I just got married this past weekend, and we couldn't wait to review the venue! The staff is super friendly and helpful, Stephanie was an absolute rock star helping our coordinator, and the food was to die for! The house is absolutely gorgeous and everyone was flexible and really worked with my husband and I. The staff really made us feel like family during our stay. They genuinely want you to enjoy your big day here. We felt taken care of from the moment we signed our contract until the moment we drove home yhe day after the wedding. If you want a beautiful wedding with no worries at all, do yourself a favor and call Joel Hurley to book your wedding! Thank you so much Preston Woodall staff!

We booked a whole weekend (Friday through Sunday) at Preston Woodall House, and everything was just amazing!! Brian is a wonderful chef, and I cannot say enough about the delicious rehearsal dinner, and the duck that was served for our reception. All of the guests were very impressed with the food (and food display), and cannot stop talking about it. The bar is also stocked with very nice beer/wine/liquors, and our guests were very happy. Joel and Stephanie coordinated everything meticulously, and our event went exactly how I imagined it! Our wedding party and family stayed in the cottages and main house on Friday and Saturday nights, which made the event even better! I really cannot recommend this venue enough! Everyone was so helpful in the planning process, before, and after the wedding! It was definitely a day to remember! Thank you, Joel, Stephanie, Brian, and Kim!

The Preston Woodall house was the first venue that me and my now wife visited and we immediately stopped all of our searching as this place is THE best. We met with Joel Hurley, the owner, who is amazing. We purchased a package that included catering and all of the rooms in the house for a few nights and the ballroom. All of our guests had nothing but good things to say about the accommodations and the wait staff. My wife and I really enjoyed the wait staff and how courteous they were. They made sure we had everything that we needed or wanted during the event. For example- We had bacon wrapped shrimp as our hors d'oeuvres. Guests complimented them greatly, but I did not get to have one. During dinner, I asked one of the wait staff if there were any left. She disappeared for about five minutes and came back with a WHOLE PLATE of them just for me and the bride. How cool is that? Our wedding was amazing and I truly do not feel it would have been as great if we had not chosen the Preston Woodall House. If you're planning your own wedding, you should visit this venue and meet the staff (Stephanie, Brian, Joel, Amy, Kim and Dustin are amazing!)

I could not have imagined a better venue or staff than that of the PWH. I searched high and low for a place that offered everything I wanted......an outdoor ceremony, the option to stay overnight, and a place where my precious little pup could be included. PWH had all of that, and much more. From the moment we arrived on Fri, our event manager Stephanie and my wedding planner/owner Joel made me feel at ease, and that is not easy! They assured me everything was in order. The day of went so smooth and not a thing was out of order! I felt like a princess with all the staff catering to my every need. I was never thirsty nor hungry nor worried. And even checking out was too easy. They had everything neatly organized ready for packing. Our wedding day was more perfect than I could've ever imagined!

We will certainly be back to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and many more after! The benefits of the best B&B!!!

My wife and I were married at the Preston Woodall House on August 1, 2015. The accommodations were fantastic and the staff did an amazing job taking care of everyone. It was so nice having the cottages for family. We basically made the wedding into a weekend extravaganza. Joel did a wonderful job helping us plan and coordinate and the food Brian prepared for us all was top notch. The venue ending up being even better than we could have hoped for. Thank you Joel!

We were married and had our reception at the Preston Woodall House on August 1, 2015. I couldn't have imagined a better place to get married. We also had our rehearsal and dinner at PWH. The food was outrageously good and everyone agreed. We were picky and had some food allergies to deal with and it was handled with style, grace and some seriously delicious meals - thank you so much Brian! Everyone was very impressed. Stephanie did an excellent job with coordinating. Every question we asked, she answered calmly and directly. Joel handled all of our meetings and addressed questions and coordinated the rehearsal and wedding. We've been to and in other weddings and ours was by far the most organized! I couldn't have imagined a more organized staff and weekend. The staff at the PWH can't be beat, period! We had compliment after compliment of the staff, food, and gorgeous location of the PWH. We loved having the housing as well so that our families could spend the weekend on the premises with us! I couldn't imagine spending our big day (and honestly the whole weekend) anywhere else. Thank you all for making our wedding exactly what we wanted it to be!

I cannot say enough good things about the Preston Woodhall House. My daughter and her husband were married there this past weekend and I've heard so many people say that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Joel Hurley and his team have this wedding business perfected down to the wire. Thank you so much Joel, Stephanie, and Brian!!! The guests lacked for nothing, and the service was top notch!! PWH team anticipated every single need and were on top of it before you could even think of it. I was totally amazed at how well everything was run. And the food...WOW!!! Chef Brian made the best food and every guest I've heard back from commented on how excellent the food was. And although I didn't get one of the meatballs, they sure were a hit with everyone. I had happened to comment on a photo I saw posted of a fruit display about how much I liked the initial carved into the watermelon. So, of course Joel made that happen for us!! I could go on and on about how wonderful everything went, but bottom line is- if you need a venue- you will be so glad you chose The Preston Woodall House!!
