In the true sense of Southern Hospitality, we want you to relax and feel free to sit on the porches and watch the sun set over the pasture, enjoy the shade of the large maple trees, or stroll down to the ponds. Our sincere goal is to make your event something very special to remember. Read less

Our wedding at Rock Hill Plantation was spectacular. The service and support that we got from Jo Ann and Rev. Will was the best that anyone could ask for. Jo Ann quickly answered any questions or concerns we had leading up to our big day by either phone or email. They made all the panning of our event very simple. Jo Ann made it known to us up front that this was the brides day and that nothing or no one would get in the way of making it perfect, and come the day she stood by that. The morning of our wedding it was raining. By the time I got there I was worried and upset that I might not get the beautiful scenery of the outdoor service I was hoping for. They had a back up plan incase it didn't stop in time. When I got there Rev.Will pulled me to the side in the office where he had been keeping an eye on the weather all day and assured me that it was going to be ok and I was going to get the outdoor service I had dreamed of. He was correct 30 minutes before the rain stopped and sunshine was starting to come through the clouds. They waited until the last minutes to set the chairs up so no one had to sit in a wet chair. It was everything we could have dreamed of. It all went off without a hitch. The reception was just like the service perfect. The vendors Jo Ann uses were excellent. Everything she told us they would do was spot on along with the quality of service we received. If you are having a wedding that will fit their venue we strongly recommend the intimate setting of Rock Hill Plantation. They will make you feel more like family than a customer by the time the whole process of planing your wedding is done.

Rock Hill Plantation is a wonderful place for a wedding reception. I cannot say enough about how amazing Jo Anne and Reverend Will helped to make my wedding. They were very responsive, extremely flexible, and extraordinarily helpful. You would never get this kind of interaction or personal touch with a hotel, and this service, along with the beauty of the Plantation, is what makes this place one of a kind. Not only did Jo Anne respond to every email I sent or call I made very quickly, she also provided a great list of recommended vendors. I used the caterer, DJ, florist, dessert baker, hair stylist, and makeup artist from her list and they were all awesome.
The Plantation itself is beautiful and on the day of the wedding, everything looked wonderful. Jo Anne and Rev Will warmly welcomed us and guided my guests to the lovely veranda for the cocktail hour.
I did not take advantage of the ceremonial service that the Plantation offers but with Jo Anne and Rev Will at the helm, I am sure it, too, would have been great.
I am not one to write reviews and am a pretty tough critic, but when you have an experience as positive as I did, it needs to be shared. Pick Rock Hill Plantation for your wedding. You will be very glad you did.

Beautiful!!! It is a beautiful location for a intimate wedding. Rev Will makes sure everything is about you when you get married here - your ceremony is personalized. The way he and JoAnn walk you and your wedding party through the ceremony details makes you feel comfortable and confident. JoAnn has wonderful ideas that she will share with you and she makes sure everything is set up perfectly for the wedding and reception - if anything went wrong on our big day, I sure did not know about it! Rev Will & JoAnn make you feel like they are family that is hosting your wedding! Would recommend this venue for sure!

Reverend Will was amazing and we were so glad he was recommended to us to officiate our wedding. He was very helpful in walking us through the entire planning of our ceremony, and was very flexible about all of the special things we wanted to do to make the ceremony ours. He had our guests captivated and made the ceremony about us while making sure to include all our family and friends. I was so overwhelmed by how memorable he made everything feel, even beyond the anticipation that it would be memorable.

Three words: GET MARRIED HERE! This place was great! It was beyond perfect to have the ceremony venue, reception hall and officiant all in one package. Not to mention it was one of the only venues I found that was upfront about they're pricing. Rev. Will and Jo Anne, the owners, are absolutely wonderful. The day went so smoothly thanks to their help. Jo Anne acts as a day of coordinator to make sure the ceremony goes off without a hitch. It was so reassuring to know that she was there in case there were any mishaps.

The venue is located in rural Stafford, VA and the landscape is beautiful. Will and Jo Anne keep the grounds absolutely flawless. The grass is green, the flowers are colorful and the pond was picturesque. There were rolling hills and there were even some goats and a pony! Our wedding guests had a lot of fun taking pictures with the goats, named Katie and L.B. You'll have to ask Jo Anne what L.B. stands for ;)

Rev. Will is very helpful when it comes to planning out the ceremony. We were provided with a lot of different options and he helped us narrow them down. When he sent me the completed ceremony a week before the wedding I was in tears at work. It was so beautiful and so very uniquely us. He was so funny during the ceremony- it was lighthearted and joyful. Everything was exactly what we wanted.

The reception hall is on the smaller side but one of my guests said "I like that this room is smaller, sometimes when you're at a cavernous wedding venue it feels impersonal. Here it feels like we really are all together." I couldn't agree more! When you have all of your favorite people in one place, you want to feel close! The reception opened up onto a really lovely deck that Jo Anne decorated and that is where the bar and the food was set up.

Bottom Line: This was the perfect venue to have a stress-free gorgeous wedding. As a bride I had a million things to worry about, but Will and Jo Anne were definitely not one of them.

Rock Hill Plantation House in Stafford, VA is absolutely beautiful! We had about 100 guests and it was the perfect size (they can hold up to 130). The ceremonial gazebo was simple and picturesque. The reception space and verandah were beautifully assembled and decorated for the wedding. Will and Jo Ann care so much about the couples who get married there and are always willing to help and answer andy questions.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Rev. Will and his JoAnne. Our wedding at Rock Hill was more than I ever could have imagined! Weddings are clearly a big deal and a lot of work, having an amazing person with you the day of to make sure everything goes smoothly is crucial-JoAnne is just that. I literally had no worries at all the day of wedding because of her-she is just amazing. Rev. Will did a great job during our ceremony-we received so many compliments about how personal and special it was. If your thinking of having your wedding here-you will not be disappointed. Its beautiful, intimate and lovely. I wish we could have our wedding here over and over again!

Rock Hill Plantation House is the perfect venue! My husband and I were married there Saturday September 28, 2013. Jo Anne and Rev. Will were the perfect hosts. They were so helpful from day 1 and were super patient with us though all our hectic planning. The beauty of Rock Hill is unmatched and sure to be one of the nicest locations we have found. We highly recommend this venue to anyone who is seeking a romantic and elegant place to be married. I do hope you know what a huge impact you have in couples lives planning their big day!

Thank you so much for everything you have done for us! We could not have made it happen with out you!
Much love from both!

Our wedding at Rock Hill was exactly as we envisioned it, probably even better! This was due to the beautiful grounds and most definitely wonderful owners who truly helped make our event a success. We have no complaints but will try to highlight our experience. Rev. Will and Jo Anne will be flexible in scheduling a visit. They did this for us on numerous occasions, as we were living in different states and had a few things happen last minute (e.g., groom leaving the country for a few months). When you meet them, you will immediately notice that they run the venue because they really enjoy working with couples and planning their big day. If Rev. Will conducts your ceremony, he will work with you to customize everything how you want it. Jo Anne will tell you that she serves as the ‘day-of-coordinator’ but in reality she does a lot more than that! She takes the time to care about the details and will help with everything she can. We were on a budget and they went out of their way suggesting vendors they had worked with in the past or who they had heard offered good pricing for their services without compromising quality. Once we booked Rock Hill, a significant number of emails and phone calls were exchanged with Rev. Will and Jo Anne. They are prompt in replying and take the time to not only address your questions and concerns, but also provide suggestions and mention anything they think might be of help to you. A rehearsal is usually held the day before the event. We had a few issues come up and were allowed to drop off some things then. We had to make two trips and when we arrived the second time, Jo Anne had already set up what we had dropped off during the first trip! On the day of the event, the ceremony was very touching (lots of tears from everyone) and Jo Anne and the rest of the vendors took care of everything. This allowed us to remain stress-free and simply enjoy ourselves. We have received many compliments from guests regarding the venue and its owners!

We got married at Rock Hill Plantation House September 7. The venue was absolutely gorgeous! My friends and family are still raving about how beautiful everything was. Lovely landscaping, picturesque rolling hills with a pond and fabulous old trees. Jo Anne and Will of course made it even more wonderful by taking care of everything that day so I didn't have to worry! So warm and kind, and very professional! I can say I would definitely recommend the location to anyone who can appreciate such a beautiful, natural setting for their wedding ceremony and reception.

Rock Hill Planation was the perfect venue for us. We love the outdoors and the beautiful landscape Rock Hill had to offer made our day absolutley perfect. Jo Anne and Rev. Will were so helpful during the entire process. It felt like we had known them our entire lives. The location is in a very private area with great space for beautiful pictures. There is also a great bridal suite for the bride to get ready. Our ceremony took place under the gazebo while the cocktail hour and reception was on the veranda and in the carriage house. The fountain and lighting at night was spectacular! During the ceremony Jo Anne guided everyone as she did during the introductions at the reception. They know how to make a bride feel special. Jo Anne even helped out with the ceremony as I forgot a few details, she was there to the rescue. All my guest enjoyed themselves and danced all night. The catering Rock Hill recommended was great as well. In the end my husband and I had the best day of our lives at Rock Hill Plantation House. I would recommend getting married there to everyone!

While most brides take a while to find the perfect venue, my fiancé and I were able to find ours within one visit to Rock Hill. I never envisioned myself marrying on a southern plantation, but I had no choice but to make Rock Hill my venue after meeting JoAnne and Will Cannon. Will made us feel right at home the moment we walked through the door while JoAnne focused on every detail with such grace and organization. If you are looking for a medium size venue that does both ceremonies and reception halls in one location, Rock Hill offers the most beautiful setting for an amazing price. But really, it's not the setting or price that makes this venue great - it is the people. I know that yearly Rev Will and JoAnne have over 60 brides a year, but I felt like I was their only one every time I met with them. If you're looking for a picturesque scene with an amazing background team, Rock Hill is your place!

If you are looking for a medium size venue that does both ceremonies and reception halls in one location, Rock Hill offers the most beautiful setting for an amazing price. But really, it's not the setting or price that makes this venue great - it is the people. I know that yearly Rev Will and JoAnne have over 60 brides a year, but I felt like I was their only one every time I met with them. If you're looking for a picturesque scene with an amazing background team, Rock Hill is your place! Read less

Jo Anne and Will made our wedding day the most beautiful day of our lives. They both have an abundance of wedding planning skills and wonderful attention to detail. Additionally, they have absolutely fabulous recommendations when it comes to other wedding vendors with whom they work regularly. Jo Anne and Will are so warm and welcoming and give so much care to each aspect of your wedding that you will be able to relax and feel confident that your day will go off perfectly no matter what. They really are the best! The picturesque setting in the rural Virginia countryside was most romantic and made for lovely wedding photos. There could not have been a more perfect location than Rock Hill Plantation House, nor more thoughtful owners/coordinators than Jo Anne and Will. We definitely recommend that you meet them and see their gorgeous place when you are shopping for your wedding venue.

My husband and I got married at Rock Hill Plantation a little over a year ago and I couldn't speak more highly of our experience. The venue is so beautiful and well maintained. Rev. Will and Jo Anne go above and beyond to make the day special for everyone. They are also very upfront about all costs and expectations, so there were no surprises (except happy ones!), which lead to a stress-free and easy flowing day. Everything about Rock Hill Plantation is so beautiful and welcoming. I could not imagine having our wedding anywhere else.

This is an absolutely exquisite venue in Stafford Virginia that has everything we needed for the perfect wedding day. We were able to have the wedding and reception at the same location and that made things very convenient for us and our guests. Rev. Will and Jo Anne were amazing making sure everyone knew what to do and where to be. It was a completely stress free day. Every bride should be able to have a wedding experience this easy and beautiful. People are still talking about the great time they had at our wedding.

Where to even begin!?!

Rock Hill was not the only the most perfect, beautiful place for our wedding but Rev. Will and Jo Anne make it all the more the special. Our wedding day was everything we ever wanted and more. We first went to visit with them in June 2012(after many emails back and forth) and immediately knew this was the place my husband and I would be getting married. Rev. Will and Jo Anne are very passionate about what they do so we never had any doubts. They explain everything so there is never any hidden fees or stuff like that. They truly care about making your special day everything you want it to be.

Leading up to the wedding I(and my mom) was calling Jo Anne with any questions/ideas/concerns from decorations to the rehearsal dinner to centerpieces. She has an incredibly sweet personality which literally put us at ease about everything. On the day of the wedding, she makes sure everything is just perfect and really goes that extra mile. We didn't know what we'd do without her!

Rev. Will was our officiant and we LOVED him! He makes everyone laugh(including us!) during the ceremony which totally helps calm the nerves. But more than anything, he really helped bring out how much love my husband and I have for each other. He went over options with us and customizes the ceremony to which fits you as a couple. It was absolutely perfect!!

I am still getting compliments from people about our wedding! From before the ceremony through the end of the night! The grounds are so beautiful and even the pony and goats were a hit! A lot of people were telling me things were gonna go wrong/things are gonna happen but the entire day was so perfect we wouldn't change a thing! Even after the big day Rev. Will and Jo Anne still keep in contact. They are such sweet, sincere, caring people who truly care about their couples. We had the most unforgettable wedding day, and we know we have Rev. Will and Jo Anne to thank for that!

My husband and I recently had our wedding at Rock Hill Plantation on May 3, 2013. I knew right away when I saw the place online it was the place we would get married. We met with Reverend Will and JoAnne and instantly fell in love with it and them. It was so wonderful to see two people so committed to each other and their love as they are. They provided a list of vendors in our area which gave us plenty of options to choose from. Jo Anne was always there to answer questions and guide us in making the right decisions for our big day. Over the months leading up to our wedding, Jo Anne and I stayed in contact to make sure everything was going well. Finally the wedding day was here. I had ordered the flowers online so when they came the boutonnieres were not cut and Jo Anne took care of getting them cut and ready. She also contacted the caterer to have the linens delivered a day earlier so we could decorate right after the rehearsal! We had the rehearsal the day before and went over everything. Our wedding day turned out to be a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding! The sun was shining and it was just a gorgeous setting. Jo Anne attended to all the details with the wedding programs, DJ, photographer, cake, and caterers it was just a perfect day at the perfect place! When I walked down the aisle and saw my handsome husband to be in front of the gazebo it literally took my breath away. The setting was just so fantastic and every detail was taken care of. The reception was just as wonderful! Jo Anne had the bird cage and guest book setup outside on the veranda for the guests. The hall looked fabulous especially with the up-lighting. Jo Anne and Reverend Will joined in the celebration, dancing, making sure all the vendors were on track, and occasionally posing for pictures lol! It was an amazing day and I wouldn't have changed one thing about it.
Thank you so much!!!

Sincerely,

Danielle & Chris

My husband and I recently had our wedding at Rock Hill Plantation in late October. We had visited a year prior to see the grounds and instantly fell in love with it. We immediately booked and were so excited to get started! Jo Anne and Rev.Will were so helpful. They provided a list of the best vendors in our area which made it easy for us to choose without the added research. Jo Anne was always there to answer questions and guide us in making the right decisions. Over the next year, Jo Anne and I stayed in contact to make sure everything was going well. Finally the wedding was here and I could not have done it without Jo Anne's dedication. We had the rehearsal the day before and went over everything. Our wedding day was close to when Hurricane Sandy was going to hit the east coast- so we went over a plan B option just in case it rained. Luckily it didn't- and my wedding day was everything I could have imagined. Jo Anne made sure everything went smoothly and is there to put your mind at ease. She even got up and danced with us during the reception :) It was amazing and I wouldn't have changed one thing. This venue is absolutely wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone!

I do believe that Rev. Will and Jo Anne were as much of a hit with my family and friends as was the beautiful venue! We were delighted by the personal attention they gave to EVERY detail. They are both really amazing people - and so genuine - a rare find these days. They cared about our feelings, concerns, and held our hands through every step of our planning. They offerred invaluable advice, encouragement and support. We treasure the whole experience working with Rev. Will and Jo Anne this past year They made us all feel so special and loved! EVERY bride deserves the wonderful attention they offered our daughter. We put the cards on the table, but they played the hand and it was a winning hand all the way! We are filled with fabulous memories of a most precious and perfect day! We could not have asked for a finer venue than Rock Hill Plantation House, We also could not have asked for nicer people than Rev. Will and Jo Anne to share our daughter's wedding with - they offerred love, and heart to our whole event.

Rock Hill Plantation is the perfect venue for such a happy occasion, you can feel it as soon as you step foot onto the property. Also, Rev Will and Jo Anne were absolutely wonderful to work with. I was so nervous about everything, I figured I would trip, it would rain, you name it, I thought it! Jo Anne gave me a big hug right before the ceremony, told me I looked beautiful and that it was going to be a fantastic wedding.. She was so right. Everyone loved them, loved the location and it was honestly the PERFECT day. Not only did I get to marry the love of my life, I got to have the wedding of my dreams. :)

JoAnne took care of every detail and was there throughout the entire wedding making sure everything was perfect...which it was! Because of JoAnne we had absolutley NO stress in planning the wedding or the day of. We didn't have to double check any detail, she coordinated and handle all of our requests. JoAnne was always available to us whenever we needed her in the months leading up to the wedding. We had 100% confidence in JoAnne and just knew the wedding would be exactly what we wanted because of her. Rock Hill is where everyone should have their wedding! No worries or stress just pure perfection! Thank you JoAnne and Rev. Will, and God Bless you both.

We loved having our wedding at Rock Hill! Not only was it an absolutely gorgeous property that all our guests raved about, but working with the Cannons was wonderful. Jo Ann is just about the best person you could have on your side as a bride. She went above and beyond just helping us with the venue arrangements. She even intervened with a few vendors who we had trouble with and was able to resolve our issues within an hour. She makes you feel like you and your wedding her top priority, even though she plans so many weddings. She and Rev. Will made us feel like part of their family. We can't recommend Rock Hill enough!

I expected everything to go wrong on the wedding day, but everyone worked so hard to make sure that didn't happen! JoAnne knows what she is doing! She takes over as wedding coordinator and things just fall in place! She eased everyone's nerves and made sure things went along as planned. Even when our cake fell apart, she handled it with grace and I never even had to freak out. (: I couldn't have had a better wedding day thanks to these people and their beautiful home. The reception area dresses up beautifully and the porch looks wonderful with the flowers and buffet/bar set up! The gazebo makes for beautiful pictures. It was just perfect!

Words can not express how AMAZING this place and these people are. The Cannon's are some of the nicest, simply amazing people we've ever met. They made sure that our wedding day was perfect. We planned our entire wedding in 2 months and a lot of that was because Jo Anne Cannon helped me figure out everything and they were so understanding. Will Cannon was our Officiant and we LOVED him. Simply amazing people. The property was absolutely beautiful and very well kept. Very professional people that know exactly what they are doing. I would get married over and over again if I was able to do it everytime with Rock Hill Plantation.

Rock Hill went beyond anythign I could expect. There was a bad storm the night before our wedding and they lost power. Rock Hill made sure that there was no limbs from trees laying around, and the place looked wonderful and like it was not touched by the storm. Rev. Will and Jo-ann were so nice and professional along with adding a very welcoming and caring touch to everything. My wife and I felt as if we were apart of their family with the care and attention they provided. I cannot express how thankful I am with the outstanding job they did to make our day such a wonderful day.

First and foremost, Rock Hill Plantation is beyond gorgeous. The first time I went to look at the venue I was in love, I knew that I would be getting married there. The grounds at Rock Hill are beautiful and very well kept, there is a beautiful pond at the entrance which by the way makes a great photo op! The house has an amazing bridal suite with vintage furniture from Ireland, it was the best place to get dressed I truly felt like royalty :) Rev. Will and Jo Anne are the owners of the plantation and they have got to be the some of the nicest people I have ever met, Rev. Will did a beautiful job officiating the ceremony and Jo Anne was the best day of coordinator ever! They both worked with me on everything I requested from day one of the planning right up until the end of the reception. I really cannot say enough wonderful things about Rock Hill, all I can say is if you want a truly magical experience on your wedding day I would recommend Rock Hill Plantation over and over again, hands down!

Wow, how perfect! That's what many of our guests said about the venue and its picturesque landscape, ceremony, and reception areas. The venue was perfect for us and we felt reassured knowing that rain or shine (they have a built in back up rain plan!), the day would be perfect. Rev. Will and Jo Anne were a pleasure to work with and made sure every detail was covered. I would highly recommend Rock Hill Plantation.

I couldn't have asked for more. Working with Will and Jo Anne was an absolute pleasure. As a bride planning from afar (I live in Boston) they were more than accomodating - often working around my schedule to help me visit the site, discuss the ceremony, etc. They were responsive to my questions and did their absolute best to accomodate my requests or suggestions! The venue is picture perfect but it's Will and Jo Anne that make the place truly shine! They were amazing. My wedding was absolutely flawless thanks to their attentiveness to detail.

Our daughter and son-in-law were married at Rock Hill Plantation House on 9/10/11, and their special day, as well as the wedding ceremony, and reception couldn't have been more perfect! Rev. Will Cannon, and his lovely wife, Joanne couldn't have been more attentive and gracious to the Bride and Groom, as well as to the parents and all of our guests!
The setting is exquisite, serene and inviting ~ perfect for the maximum amount of guests the site can accommodate (130). Granted, we parents may be paying for the event itself, but the Cannon's treated the special couple as though they were their own children ~ such a special touch! They are such lovely people, and I simply cannot say enough kind things about them both!! Throughout the planning, they truly became like family to all of us :}
The preferred catering vendor we chose, was simply awesome as well!! Great food, and even greater service!!
The Cannon's home is beautiful, and the surrounding grounds are stunning, but not ostentatious. The carriage house is simply the most perfect place to hold a wedding reception!! You can't help but love it! The grounds are impeccable, and I truly believe, that no matter what time of year a couple is married there, the surrounding grounds and landscaping will be impeccable as well!
We visited at least 6-8 venues, prior to chosing Rock Hill Plantation House, and knew right away, that this was THE most perfect place to celebrate such a special occasion! We felt that Rock Hill's prices were extremely reasonable, but more importantly, we could sense that this was going to be the most positive experience, simply by the sincere and personal welcome and assurance we felt, upon meeting with Rev. Will and Joanne that first time!
Should you choose to have your wedding at a plantation type setting, trust us, you simply won't be disappointed at making Rock Hill Plantation House your preferred choice!!

Rev. Will and Jo Anne are wonderful. The venue is beautiful, the service was great, the planning sessions were great. Absolutely everything was prefect. We couldn't be happier. The options they provide for the ceremony are limitless and ours was better than anything we could have imagined. Once you first contact them you become part of their family and they treat you as such. Jo Anne kept my sanity the day of the wedding before the ceremony and she was there throughout the rest of the wedding. Rev. Will did a superb job with the ceremony and talked with family the rest of the night. We can't express enough how happy we are with how everything went. So if you are looking for a beautiful wedding venue, a great event, and peace of mind look no further. Rock Hill Plantation House will exceed all your expectations.

What can I say....I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Will and Jo Ann. From the day we first met them we knew we would be getting married at Rock Hill. Anytime I had a question, there was a quick answer waiting for me. It had been raining off and on within the hour before my wedding and the had the back up plan all set in the event the rain didn't hold out. Luckily though, the sun came out long enough for us to have the ceremony out in the gazebo, which is gorgeous, and for us to get our pictures. The property is amazing as are the people who own it. Everyone that came kept saying how lovely the place was.

Rock Hill Plantation House is the best place to get married in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan and greater Frederickburg areas. Reverend Will is warm, friendly and funny, and Jo Anne is sweet, kind, and an absolute doll. They will work with you to make sure that you have the wedding ceremony and reception of your dreams. They also know great vendors and their recommendations can be trusted.

The venue is absolutely beautiful, there are many great spots for photo opportunities, and the carriage house is large yet has an intimate feel. Like another bride, our original plans did not include Rock Hill, but everything does happen for a reason. I am so glad my husband and I got married at Rock Hill. Our family and friends couldn't say enough about how perfect it was.

Rock Hill Plantation was the best choice for my wedding! The grounds are gorgeous and the guests enjoyed the freedom of walking around outside during the day. Rev Will and Dr. Jo Anne are so friendly, accomodating, and easy to work with. They ensure that you are comfortable at all times, and they will bend over backwards to make sure you are happy. Highly recommended!!!

Hmmm...where should I start to tell you about this wonderful place:)

I “accidentally” stumbled on Rock Hill Plantation House during a HUGE upset in my original wedding plans, but I’m a true believer that things happen for a reason!!

I went home and looked at the website and decided instead of emailing I would call and leave a message because this looked like a place I wanted to have my wedding and I needed to get a hold of them immediately!! Even though it was “later” in the day my “angel” Jo Anne Cannon picked up the phone and talked to me for half an hour settling my nerves about my wedding “upset”.

We met with Jo Anne and Rev Will a couple of days after the call and as soon as my fiancé and I pulled up and saw the beauty of the place and as soon as Jo Anne greeted us at the front door I knew this was “the place” I was going to get married and the people that would be involved in my wedding day.

Jo Anne is a very warm, kind, and AMAZING person and I couldn’t have done this without her. She has all of the answers and just take MY advice…and take HER advice…she won’t steer you wrong; she of course has been involved in every wedding at Rock Hill and she only wants the best for you and your wedding day.

Rev Will is a very warm and funny guy with a big smile and a big heart!! He gives you the guidance to put together the perfect ceremony for you and will take suggestions to make it special for you. I thought I would be a “emotional mess” during the ceremony…turns out I went the other way and became a little nervous (and made some terribly nervous faces ha-ha) BUT I know either way I showed up at the alter that he would have made me feel at ease so my husband and I could enjoy our “perfect” ceremony and that most important moment in our lives.

Regarding the venue itself: Everything is perfectly beautiful!!
The house is beautiful inside and out with wonderfully inviting porches and so much welcoming charm. Inside is so warm and inviting with its beautiful hardwood floors (for you Jo Anne) and Irish charm.
The Bridal suite was so beautiful and relaxing…even a couple of places to hide from your bridal party for a minute or two if you need to get away…ha-ha.
The grounds are absolutely pristine, green and AMAZING!! Flowers and trees everywhere…ponds, ducks, even cute goats and a beautiful pony named Murphy in the background…what more could you ask for! With all of the beautiful scenery you will hardly have to do any decorating at all…which is a huge cost savings over other venues!
The grounds are huge and live music sounds amazing bouncing off the hills.
The ceremonial gazebo is beautiful and the brick walk path is “magical” to walk down to greet your husband to be!
The carriage house has so many beautiful details so you also don’t have to do any decorating. The walls are draped with beautiful fabrics that add such a lovely touch.
Jo Anne has thought of every little detail to make your wedding day as perfect as it can get.

I wish I could do the whole day over again in slow motion (minus the rain…even though they say it’s “good luck”). I got so many compliments from everybody about how beautifully perfect Rock Hill Plantation House was and how amazing the people were.

My friends and I have already been talking about one day have a “vow renewal” with multiple couples at Rock Hill just because it was so perfect!

To Jo Anne, Will and Family…from the bottom of the “New” Donnelly’s hearts…THANK YOU!! It wouldn’t have been the same without you!

I could write for days about how wonderful Rock Hill Plantation House was! Jo Anne and Will are the nicest people you will ever meet and are there in every step of the way of planning your wedding! Their list of vendors was so helpful and we only used people on the list and we were not disappointed! The bridal suite made me feel like a princess.

My husband and I had our wedding at Rock Hill plantation on May 1st and we had the most amazing experience. My parents live in Stafford,VA and we live in New Mexico (my husband is military) so the planning was a little difficult but Rev. Will and Jo Anne were very very accommodating, from the first time we met them they felt like family! They recommended vendors who knew the facility so when we called them they new exactly what to do and how to do it and were able to give suggestions on what works best! Rev. Will was our officiant and he supplied us with so many options on how the ceremony could go so we were able to choose how exactly we would want our ceremony to go! On the actual day Jo Anne was like a combination of a second mother and a wedding planner! It was wonderful to have her there so we knew exactly when and where to be throughout the day! I would recommend Rock Hill Plantation to everyone, the place is absolutely beautiful and everything about it and the family gave me my dream wedding!

P.S. We used Star Dust photography (which is one of their recommended photographers) and Nathaniel and Hannah are great photographers and such wonderful people!!!

We had a beautiful ceremony & reception at Rock Hill. Not only did Jo Anne & Rev. Will arrange lovely warm weather (in March, no less! ;-)), they went out of their way to make everything perfect for us. Jo Anne is the queen of details, and made sure every aspect of the decor and environment was perfect for us. I trusted her judgment completely and knew that no matter what, if anything went wrong or if anything we planned ended up not being as good as it possibly could be, that Jo Anne would fix it either with my approval (if changes were noticeable) or without my knowledge (so as not to stress me out!).

From the beginning of the process, Jo Anne was the most responsive vendor we had. She sent me long emails explaining everything and offering advice and ideas, but always respectfully and with an attitude of: whatever we wanted would be fine, and they were happy to work with us.

Reverend Will was fun and helpful before the wedding, giving us lots of options for our ceremony. His planning materials made sure that the ceremony was uniquely ours and very, very personal. He had materials that were not only appropriate for us (spiritual, non-religious), but really spoke to how we feel about love and life and our relationship. (He also has a large selection of religious planning materials, for people who prefer that.)

However, he was HYSTERICAL during the ceremony!! Everyone thought we must've imported him (my husband is from Scotland, Rev. Will is from Ireland), because he was so funny and charming that no one could believe we just lucked into finding him! :-) It was perfect though, he used humour to help everyone relax so we could enjoy our ceremony, but still maintained a beautiful sense of reverence for this sacred moment.

The only thing (and I mean the ONLY thing) that was less than perfect was that they don't include on their paperwork the $150 fee for the rented dance floor. We were definitely told this upfront, but we forgot about it, so it was a surprise when they sent us the reminder for our 30-day payment. It was our fault for not writing it down initially, but would have been helpful to have it in writing.

Despite that one minor blip, Jo Anne, Rev. Will, and their lovely venue went above and beyond our expectations and hopes. We knew without any doubt that anything they were in charge of would be perfect. They are THE MOST gracious hosts and we were thrilled to get to know them and share our special day with them. We can't recommend them highly enough!!

The only thing (and I mean the ONLY thing) that was less than perfect was that they don't include on their paperwork the $150 fee for the rented dance floor. We were definitely told this upfront, but we forgot about it, so it was a surprise when they sent us the reminder for our 30-day payment. It was our fault for not writing it down initially, but would have been helpful to have it in writing.

Despite that one minor blip, Jo Anne, Rev. Will, and their lovely venue went above and beyond our expectations and hopes. We knew without any doubt that anything they were in charge of would be perfect. They are THE MOST gracious hosts and we were thrilled to get to know them and share our special day with them. We can't recommend them highly enough!! Read less

The venue is perfect for any wedding /reception. The owners tend to the details, and take stress away from the bride and groom. The grounds are well maintained. We have received nothing but compliments from our guests on the beauty of both the ceremony site, photography sites and reception area. The owners have it down and know what they are doing. If you are looking for a beautiful venue at a reasonable price and want to be treated like a queen this is the place.

I can't speak highly enough of Jo Anne and Rev. Will at Rock Hill. Beginning to end, they made me feel like family and made wedding planning a breeze. We started planned our wedding long distance and Jo Anne set me up with vendor appointments before I even booked with her. She's WONDERFUL! She always responded to my emails the same day, most of the time within an hour and was a huge help in answering my questions and making suggestions.

The plantation is incredibly beautiful with so much natural decor and flowers that I barely had to decorate for the wedding and reception (besides centerpieces of course). They love what they do and it truly shows. I highly recommend everyone to book here. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The grounds are perfect for photography with so many beautiful natural backdrops. Rock Hill gave me the gave me the romantic and timeless atmosphere I wanted while still keeping everything relaxed and carefree. Not many brides can say they had a stress free perfect day, but I did :) Reverend Will was the perfect choice for officiating our ceremony. He was funny and sentimental and everything we wanted. THANKS JO ANN AND WILL!!!

Rock Hill Plantation was absolutely amazing. From the first day of planning through the entire reception, Reverand Will and Jo Anne were great to work with and made sure our wedding was perfect. We loved everything, our parents coundn't be happier, and we received compliments from all of our guests.

Reverand Will's ceremony was perfect. He is entertaining and very charming. He personalized every detail of the ceremony for us which was very helpful. I think a handful of the guests were asking him questions and are ready to sign him up for their weddings.

The reception hall and the outdoor veranda area are beautiful. We had about 110 guests. There was plenty of room for all the tables and dancing, and the guests enjoyed stepping outside to enjoy the fresh air. The veranda was beautifully decorated with flowers and lights that Jo Anne and put up.

If we could do it all over again (which I wish we could) we would go right back to the Rock hill Plantation again. The venue is beautiful.
Jo Anne is an absolutely wonderful person who made this entire experience so much fun. Thank you soo much Rev. Will and Jo Anne.

I can never thank Rev. Will and Jo Ann enough for the amazing job they did officiating and coordinating my wedding. Everything was seamless from the minute I arrived, to the minute I left. They were super helpful with recommendations when we asked for them and helped us remember all the things we were forgetting. They are wonderful people who strive to make your special day a worry free, stress free time. I got so many compliments on the venue I lost count by Monday- such a beautiful location! I can't think of a single negative thing to say, except I'm sad I can't do the whole day over!

I just got married at Rock Hill Plantation this past October 24. I can't say enough about this venue, Rev. Will and Jo Anne Cannon. Right from the start of meeting them they are so warm and friendly and really make you feel at home!

Jo Anne was always there for me if I had any questions about just about anything. This is their job and they were born to do it. The Cannons have a calm about them that just makes you relax! Even when it is pouring down rain with high winds on your wedding day, they handle everything. And you are left to just relax and enjoy your wonderful special day!

The price is a GREAT deal, specially for what you get. I would have loved to have my wedding outdoors by the gazebo but weather was an issue, they were fast to arrange the plan B set up. The grounds are beautiful. I can't say how lovely it all is, you just have to go there. Trust me, you will fall in love within 5 minutes!

My husband and I were married at Rockhill in October 2009! Everything was perfect. JoAnne was more than helpful in providing reccomendations for vendors and ideas for the ceremony. She was extremely helpful in coordinating the wedding day activities and the hustle and bustle of vendors. I didn't worry one bit. The venue was great! We held our ceremony outdoors, used the deck for our buffet, and held the reception indoors. We had about 120 guests and the carriage house was perfect. Definitely recommend renting a dance floor for the carriage house! Any more than 120, the carriage house might be a squeeze.

As the future bride, I had been planning my own wedding a year prior to the big day. Doing so, I was on a budget so I needed to find the best deal out there while enjoying our day as well as friends and family. I have searched through the internet, and Wedding wire helped me find Rock Hill Plantation. What I loved most about this place, was the privacy as well as the "closeness" with the owners. It's not a golf course, or some kind of expensive museum, or else; it is a unique experience with tho people who put their heart and soul into it, and pleasing you and your guests: Reverrend Will & Jo Anne Cannon.
We had the best experience with them, just because they make you fell at ease, communication is easy and caring, and their flexibility is outstanding. Pricing was the best since we were on a budget so it was a big weight off of our shoulders.
So Jo Anne and Reverrend we will never THANK YOU enough for the OUTSTANDING day we had. Everyone loved loved your property, the cleanliness, the quiet and private area, the landscaping, but most of all your warm hearts. We would definitely do it over again, and it was for sure the best day ever. They are very understanding people and love what they do. I wish them more and more success...

If I could double the stars for Rockhill, I would. It's difficult to describe the amazing difference planning our wedding once we found Jo Anne & Will Cannon. Our first vendor double booked and dropped us. Frantically we searched the net. From our first encounter to our grand finale after the reception, we felt like family.

Our wedding planner turned out to be a mistake. But that didn't matter because every time we stressed, a call to Jo Anne would solve everything. for instance, we couldn't figure out how to assign tables. Jo Anne suggested a foam board at the entrance to the reception hall decorated with our colors. For each table, we listed everyone's name, added a picture of us and a marriage word such as 'trust' on the foam board. At the table we had that word along with another picture of us. It added just the perfect touch and everyone was impressed with our creativity.

Will & Jo Anne truly love making people happy and it shows. Our wedding was "perfect" because we were under their wings. The only vendors of theirs we did not use were those we had when we met Jo Anne & Will. The grounds are spectacular and pictures we've seen so far are gorgeous. Four thousand cheers for Jo Anne & Will!!!!!

We had an amazing experience with Rev. Will and Jo Anne Cannon from Rock Hill. Not only do they have a beautiful home/venue, they are both wonderful people and are amazing to work with. Initially, we did not plan to spend so much on a location as we were trying to have a low budget wedding, but we fell in love at first sight with both the plantation house and the Cannons. We looked at a number of other venues and felt no personal connection to the places or to the people we were working with. Jo Anne was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns via email and they worked very hard to make sure our day was perfect. We truly feel like a part of their extended family (and they a part of ours) because we grew so close to them through this experience. Our guests were in awe of the beauty of the plantation house and grounds, and our wedding was an amazing day. We would highly recommend considering Rock Hill for a beautiful Virginia wedding.

What a wonderful place for a wedding but most of all you will love Jo Anne and Will. They were so helpful and wonderful to work with. They went above and beyond to help you in any way they could. It didn't take me long to pick Rock Hill as the place for my wedding. It was absolutely breath taking from the grounds to the bridal room and reception hall. It's a beautiful venue for an outdoor wedding but most of all they have other options as well if it rains. Which for me on my wedding day it did. I had no doubt in my mind that my wedding day would still be just as I pictured even with the rain thanks to Will and Jo Anne. I wasn't worried at all but I knew even more that I didn't have to be with all the work Jo Anne and Will did in making my day just as great. We were married in the reception hall which proved to be not only perfect for a reception but also for a ceremony. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding. Lots of guests commented on how this was one of the nicest weddings they have been to. I can't say enough how thankful I am that I picked Rock Hill and how I will always remember all they did for me.

The prices are very reasonable and they truly give you what they promise for your money and much more. It's a wonderful place and Rev. Will did a great job performing our ceremony (at no additional cost). They don't have any hidden fees. We can't say enough about them except to say that we are definitely planning to host more events there.

Rev. Will and Jo Anna Cannon are both amazing to work with!! They are very kind and ensured that everything was taken care off.

We absolutely loved this place! Will and Joanne did an excellent job at catering to our every needs and Joanne helped out a lot on the wedding day to make sure everything went smoothly. Will did an excellent job at officiating the ceremony, he is such a great person! We had our ceremony on the deck off of the reception hall and I have to admit I was skeptical of the idea at first. The deck worked out perfectly to fit all of our guests, our ceremony musicians and the bridal party very comfortably. The venue was absolutely beautiful and I definitely couldn't have picked a better place for our special day. I would recommend this place to any bride who is looking for a wonderful place to have her wedding. Thank you Will and Joanne for everything!

There are not words to express how wonderful and beautiful our day was because of Joanne, Will and Rock Hill Plantation. From the time we met the Cannons until our wedding day we were confident that everything would be perfect, but things went beyond perfect. The house is beautiful and feels like home. The ceremony site is breathtaking and made for fantastic photos. People are still telling us how much they loved Will's ceremony and how he was a magnificent officiant. The reception hall is beautifully decorated and the veranda overlooking the pool made for a great place to enjoy the beautiful weather and the company of our families and closest friends. The cannons kept the day organized and kept us on time. They truly treated us like family. I can not imagine having a more beautiful wedding and I can't imagine a better place to have our day than Rock Hill Plantatio!

My husband and I got married at Rockhill this April and enjoyed every bit of the experience. Rev. Will and Jo Anne are so wonderful and easy to work with. They have so much knowledge and experience in coordinating weddings and parties and were on top of every little detail. The vendors that they work with frequently clearly respect this venue and the owners a great deal. They have made great connections with florists, caterers, bakers, and DJ's! I would definitely recommend working with as many of their recommended vendors as you are comfortable with. My husband, family, friends, and wedding party showed up the afternoon of our wedding and were amazed to see that everything was taken care of beyond our expectations. We literally just had to show up.

Thanks Rock Hill for making our wedding day so memorable and easy!

I feel so lucky we found this place. The couple that runs the place is very friendly and straightforward. You never feel like you are getting cheated or milked for more money on extras here and there, like I felt at other places. They are super organized, so you don't have to worry about things falling through the cracks.

The setting is really gorgeous. A lot of places that are so specifically geared towards hosting weddings are tacky--this place is not! Everything else I saw in this price range had a tacky feel to it. I was blown away by how nice the setting and decoration was at Rock Hill--it would have cost double to have something like this in other areas I looked, like Montgomery County, MD. The place does have a specific feel--country / garden / traditional but not fussy / green / simple--so if you want to something entirely different, like a super sleek modern affair or whatever, it might be an uphill battle to make the space feel your own. For what I wanted, though, it was perfect. I really really liked have ducks and a goat or two around (don’t worry, they are far out of the way and won’t be in the background of your wedding photos); the kids LOVED it, as did a surprising number of 20- and 30-somethings.

A good balance between the all inclusive venues, where you don't have enough choice, and the bare bones places where you have to do chair rental yourself. I didn't realize I'd only have a choice of two caterers when I booked Rock Hill, so I was a little bummed about that, but in the end, the main caterer they use, R&R, worked out very well...MUCH better than the sample meal I initial tried at a vendor open house, so don't write off Rock Hill just because you weren't wowed by the chicken-breast-and-cream-sauce stuff R&R shows at the open houses, they are actually quite versatile (if you get off the wedding menu and try some of the barbecue stuff, for example).

Using Jo Anne's connections with local vendors really paid off. The florist she directed me to, Linda Degler, was good and real bargain. When nobody within a 60 mile radius was willing to do my hair on July 4th, a holiday Sunday, Jo Anne applied some gentle vendor-to-vendor pressure and got me set up with a very good (and cheap!) hair dresser (Lisa Freeman at 2dyeIV Hair, ignore the cheesey name, she did a mellow, messy, natural look for me) who opened the shop just for me.

We used my family rabbi as our officiant, but I really enjoyed Reverend Will (the other half of the couple that runs the place, who also officiates if you want!) and imagine that for those looking for a reverend, he’d be great. There was one cross hanging on the front porch that I felt a little funny about, so I put it aside during the group photos taken there, and then put it back later, and that was that. A totally comfortable place for a Jewish wedding, or any other non-Christian wedding.

In the end, I did hire somebody I already knew to help with day-of coordinating, though I had no wedding coordinator before that. I think Jo Anne normally does all that work, but I did feel a bit more comfortable having woman my own age whom I already knew to bark orders at in my freak-out moments (we all have a couple). Jo Anne is very helpful and nice—maybe almost too nice!—so it just put me at ease to have one more person. I think that you could go either way. I am just very much the worried type, so I’m glad I did that, but it’s certainly not a necessity.

Highly highly highly recommended.

This was the perfect venue for our wedding! Our guests raved all night (and at brunch the next day) about how beautiful Rock Hill was - they loved being able to sit outside and go visit the animals throughout the evening. Rev. Will and Jo Anne are very easy to work with - they have their system down to a science, but also do their best to make the day what you want it to be. It's a truly great venue for any couple that wants that indoor/outdoor mix at their wedding!

We had a fabulous experience at Rock Hill. We chose it for its beauty and elegance, the relaxed and friendly attitude of its owners - JoAnne and Will Cannon, as well as it's affordability. We had booked well in advance and the Cannons allowed us to come several times to visit and they were always very responsive to our questions. We had our wedding there last weekend and things could not have been more perfect. JoAnne and Will were incredibly helpful and relaxed and everything was clean and in order - set up beautifully. We had a great time and everyone commented on how lovely the venue was. I would recommend them for anyone looking for an elegant outdoor wedding next to a fabulous reception venue. (The one restraint I would put on that is that the reception hall is a good size for a smaller wedding - they allow up to 130, but I think that over 100 would be very cramped. ) Overall, I couldn't be happier with our choicel.

Rock Hill was a perfect venue for my wedding. Jo Anne and Will are a very caring, professional couple and the site is beautiful. Rock Hill offered a lot of helpful information during the planning process on other venders as well. I ended up finding my caterer, florist, and cake vendor through them and was very pleased with their service too!

The only struggles we had were unexpected candle restrictions a week or so before the wedding when we had already planned on our centerpieces being candle arrangements (we compromised and it turned out beautifully), and our conflict on whether or not we would be permitted to set the chairs out on wet grass as it rained the morning of our wedding (which we ended up doing, and the wedding was perfect).

With those things said, I am very thankful I came across Rock Hill and would highly recommend the location for any couple.

My husband and I were married at Rock Hill in May. The venue was perfect for us. The venue had an outside reception space with amazing views and there was a back up space to get married in case it rained. The venue also had a carriage house for the reception. It's perfect for up to 100 guest. The bridal party has the entire first floor of the plantation house to use to get ready while the men use the carriage house. The reason why we choose this place was because of Jo Anne and Rev Will. They were charming and down to earth. We considered them family. We had looked at country clubs and historical venues but nothing compared to Rock Hill.

Not only are they friendly, professional, and personable, but they truly care about making your big day, the best possible. Minutes prior to my ceremony, Jo Anne was running around moving flowers and directing guests. It was a very hot day and she offered my guests her own personal stash of parasols to use during the ceremony. Rev. Will Cannon performed a lovely ceremony and his charm and good humor is one of the things that made me fall in love with this venue. The house itself is picture perfect, worth every penny!

Rock Hill Plantation is a very family oriented business. They took time to meet with my husband and I on a weekday evening. We even got to meet the grandparents of the family! All of them are wonderful people. Will (the officiant) is a great man. If you don't fall in love with his Iris brogue upon first meeting him, you will quickly learn to love him and his wife, they are just great people. The facility is beautiful. The sunset behind the hills is a nice touch as well.

Great place to have a small reception. The value is fantastic as they included the dance floor, tables and chairs for us in the price of the rental. There is a $500.00 security deposit you have to put down and you get the back as long as there isn't any damage after the party. They were very helpful and great about answering questions right away. The only problem I had was the flexibility. We were not allowed to use a few things in our decor and had to use the caterer they recommended. We also wanted to come a little early to set things up since I wanted time to get ready but they wanted to charge $100.00 for an extra hour but in the end it worked out. The caterer was efficient and the food was good. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

There is a $500.00 security deposit you have to put down and you get the back as long as there isn't any damage after the party. They were very helpful and great about answering questions right away. The only problem I had was the flexibility. We were not allowed to use a few things in our decor and had to use the caterer they recommended. We also wanted to come a little early to set things up since I wanted time to get ready but they wanted to charge $100.00 for an extra hour but in the end it worked out. The caterer was efficient and the food was good. I would definitely recommend this place to others. Read less

First of all I would like to say rock hill is beautiful! No matter what season you decide to tie the knot this venue will make for beautiful pictures. Jo Ann and Will are great people. The main negative I would explain to brides would have to be Jo Ann has a lot of information and input, which isn't always a bad thing but they push vendors they are use to working with and I had some issues with a few of them. I think she comes from a good place but she's use to running things her way and she can have a large influence over your wedding.

Joann and Rev. Will is always happy to help you with whatever accomodations you may need for your wedding. Don't be afraid to ask. Joann went above and beyond the call of duty to help for my wedding, making sure everything in the reception hall fits and accomodate the crowd. She was able to refer me to different vendors that had done a tremendous job on making my day a beautiful day.

Will and Jo Ann of Rock Hill were great to work with and our ceremony and reception were both wonderful. Although they changed some of the policies after we booked with them, we were looking for something more personal and that's definitely what we got. Will was our officiant, and we would recommend him in that regard as well. Jo Ann was helpful with the planning process and on the day of she served as a coordinator.

I was incredibly happy with Rock Hill Plantation House. The site is gorgeous and it was exactly what I was looking for. My husband and I fell in love with the site the moment we looked at it last year. The site itself has the main house (of which only the bridal party has access to, and only the first floor), the "carriage house" which is basically a large multipurpose room, the ceremony gazebo, the deck/patio behind the carriage house, a pond, beautiful trees and plants, tons of parking, two cats, ducks, three goats, and a pony. The neighboring properties are also beautiful and do a great job keeping up their land. The house behind Rock Hill has horses.

We didn't use Rev. Will to officiate our wedding since my father is a pastor. But both Jo Anne and Rev. Will were incredibly helpful and hospitable to me, my family, my bridal party, and my guests. Jo Anne added a lot of personal touches that I hadn't thought to include (chinese lanterns on the deck, plants near the ceremony) to fill in any empty spaces that we had overlooked.

The only complaints I would have are minor ones. First of all, I didn't feel like we had enough time. Their contracts are for 8 hours and then you have to pay for any extra hours. Of course, our wedding was on a Friday so that also affected the timing (guests had to fight traffic and get out of work). But I wish that I had had more flexibility on the scheduling so that I could have spent more time taking pictures and spending time with my guests. The other complaint is that communication with Rock Hill was sometimes frustrating. But you can't expect a place to be 100% perfect. Rock Hill definitely comes close, though.

Overall, I would *highly* recommend Rock Hill Plantation House to anyone who is looking for a venue that is country, outdoors, and not too far from DC/Fredericksburg. It was definitely the right choice for us.

Will and JoAnne were great ... they did double book our rehearsal day but it turned out fine and didn't get too far behind on time (we had dinner planned right after). The price was a bit high for the venue and we had to pick from only 2 catering companies, one of which took weeks to return our phone calls and then didn't fax pricing information when they said they would. Read the contract carefully - it doesn't give you a lot of time to prepare or decorate before the ceremony, so plan carefully. Overall the venue was beautiful and we got our deposit back within 2 weeks after the wedding.
