Venue is beautiful, Ginger very accommodating. Virtually every guest commented on how lovely it was. I was worried about Aug outdoors in NC but the misting fans cooled it significantly. All indoor room doors kept open so cool air spills out, helping even further. If you still get too hot you can go inside to lovely tables to sit & cool down. I must say that truly was not an issue and it was over 95 on our day. The staff was amazing,everything gets done but you literally never run into staff, managed without being intrusive. Llittle touches on everything were just 'over the top' . Ex: we supplied band-aids, aspirin, tissues etc and asked it be set out to to grab. They brought out an adorable trunk and placed everything in there and made it look almost like a decoration! We picked simple menu to contain costs but was still fantastic! Their recommended DJ was absolutely the best DJ I have ever seen at a wedding, bar none. He got people out on the floor. The room was ethereal. The decor was romantic and almost dreamlike. Never thought we would be able to provide such a lovely wedding for our daughter. The gal in charge on our night (forgot her name) was so professional and accommodating. She kept things on task, but again I never once felt as if she was controlling the event or in our way. She just 'made things happen the right way'. We wanted cupcakes instead of a single cake, there was no extra cost even though we picked FOUR different flavors. We showed pictures of what we wanted but what they did was even better. Cupcakes decorated w/live roses in every size and stage of opening - making a living display! A super sweet touch is myself and one guest are Celiacs - they surprised us each with a gluten free cupcake. I nearly cried, I had assumed I would not get to eat my daughters wedding cake. Very special moment. Truly one of the most beautiful weddings I have been to. Just aren't words to describe how lovely is TGBMH and staff. God Bless!

We had our wedding 8/20/16 and it was absolutely amazing. Ginger worked with my crazy work schedule for our meeting, and our wedding day was perfect! They made everything we had look amazing! We had a kids table that we were just going to throw some stuff on a table, they even made that look good. The staff was always there when you needed them, but never in the way. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. They do almost everything, cake, alcohol,food, the only thing you need is floral which they have places to recommend. They even have a little box for the newlyweds to take with food, champagne and beautiful plates to take with you. They have hotels to recommend for out of town guest. Ginger gives you a whole binder with everything you need to know to get married. Even how to change you name after! They made my wedding day the best, I have had numerous people tell me it was the best wedding they had been to.

I just had my daughters wedding here on May 1st. and I just want to say that it was the most beautiful wedding . The place was just breath taking. Thank you to Ginger and her coordinator Paige and the staff who were there until we left last night. a storm came up in the middle of everything and Paige and the staff jumped in and saved the day. The food was delicious and the cake was out of this world. I'm going to post lots of pictures so if you are looking for a place to have your wedding than this is the place. They do everything!!! It takes a lot off the bride and family and they do the decorations, food and the cake. PERFECT!! Again thanks to Ginger and Paige and all her staff for making my Donna's day perfect.

Very reasonable pricing, although each thing is separate you want. Food is very good and reasonable, along with DJ.
