We had our wedding at Vine Hill House and the would give the overall experience a 3 out of 5. The owner Dan was very hard to get a hold of throughout the wedding planning process, making it very difficult to get simple questions answered in a timely manner. I would sometimes have to send 2-3 emails before i would get a response which became frustrating when trying to plan a wedding. Dan sold himself to us as a "day of coordinator" to me that means you are there from start to finish on the day of helping, organizing, and making sure that your plans and decor are executed on your big day. Unfortunately on the day of Dan was no where to be found to help out. I had to go looking for him on the property several times to find him meeting with couple after couple trying to sell weddings on my wedding day. We rented the venue for the day and there were several couples he had booked to show the venue/meet with on our wedding day. Not cool. I ended up running around setting most of the stuff up myself because several things he said he would take care of never got done. If you book this venue please make sure you have at least another coordiator besides Dan. If you do book this venue just remember its your day not Dan's so dont forget to do things how you would like. Overall our wedding was a very special day i just wish i would of known some of these things before hand.

Vine Hill House is a fantastic venue to have your wedding. It is truly one of the most serene settings in the area. It is the perfect size of not too large and gaudy. And possess a charm which fit us perfectly. We had a flawless day, I'll say that even with the few drops of rain we had. Dan (owner) is very professional and knows his business and his venue like the back the back of his hand. He was great to work with. Seriously on point and on top of all facets of the day from the weather and how to address it to the limo pick up of bride and groom. I know our day could not have been such a success without Dan at the helm. He thought of everything and helped us keep on track with no last minute surprises. We our very thankful we chose Vine Hill House. All guests were beyond delighted with the choice too. Highly recommend.

Vine Hill is not only the most beautiful venue, but Dan (owner/coordinator) is super helpful and makes sure every detail is taken care of. We had a few thunderstorms on our wedding day and we were given periodic updates about the radar throughout the evening, which really allowed us to be able to relax and enjoy our time, knowing that the storm would soon pass. Dan has great recommendations for other vendors, and the venue has the most amazing spots for photography. Highly recommend!

Vine Hill House was the perfect venue for our August wedding. We had been recommended by several friends who had attended or had their weddings at this venue based on our search for a backyard mixed with winery vibe. It ended up being the perfect location.

The site itself is gorgeous & well kept. I was concerned how it would look since we were in a drought, but the gardens were just as beautiful as I imagined. I also really like the fact that all the big rentals were included, as well as umbrellas & heaters to help with some of the weather throughout the event. There are also a bunch of great decor items that are available for rent, and doing all of this through the venue just makes everything so easy. It was great that we could bring in all our own liquor, caterers, vendors, etc. I was able to assemble my dream vendor team at an amazing venue with little restrictions.

Dan is very knowledgeable and provides a ton of insight, guidance, and help throughout the process. I'm very organized & detailed, so I appreciated that Dan was as well. My only small gripe is that he is very particular about certain things or processes, which if you want to get super creative might not work. Overall we trusted his opinion since he has been doing this for so long & everything went off without a hitch!

Our wedding was absolutely perfect and I have only heard good things from all of our guests, that it was the "best wedding EVER!"

Tips:
- Trust Dan, he knows what he is doing & is probably recommending the best way for it to be done. However, feel free to ask if you can do something a little differently if it is important.
- If you don't hear from him via email, keep trying or call his cell phone. With the number of events they manage he can't always be super responsive.
- No need to hire a day of coordinator - Dan and his team do it all!

Dan is fantastic and this venue is the most beautiful either of us had ever seen. We are both busy professionals so having someone who was organized, diligent, and SO helpful was perfect. The wedding day was so much better than I could have ever even dreamed and everything with the venue and Dan went perfectly. We are so grateful to Dan and Vine Hill House!

Vine Hill House is absolutely gorgeous! I keep getting calls from my wedding guests about how beautiful everything was and that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. The hardest part about the place was two weeks before the wedding, Dan told us a bunch of additional items we needed. I was kind of shocked. However, he REALLY knows what works BEST! He was there the entire wedding making sure things were running on schedule. I was very pleased with everything!! I definitely recommend VHH! Just make sure you get the rental list from Dan before hand so you don't have additional costs 2 weeks before!

This is a beautiful venue and my wedding there went off without a hitch, but the owner (Dan) turned out to be a bit sketchy. He was really responsive until we signed a contract and then I often had to email him multiple times on the same topic before I'd get a response. He also tried to charge us a service charge for something that he'd told us he didn't charge for. I'm glad we were married there, but dealing with him before the wedding did make things more stressful. In all fairness, he was great the day of the wedding and really did keep things running smoothly. If he wasn't there the day of, I probably would have had to hire a day of coordinator. If you like this venue, I'd say go for it, but keep in mind that Dan may take some additional energy to deal with...I'd recommend Vine Hill House with some reservations.

I don't think you can do much better than Vine Hill House for your wedding venue. The place is absolutely stunning--gorgeous grounds with beautiful flowers, outstanding views and a cozy yet comfortable space.

Dan O'Connell, the owner and manager of the venue, is wonderful. He knows how to make his site run flawlessly. It might come across to some as controlling, but ultimately he knows exactly what needs to happen for a perfect day. He takes care of the bride and family, he's kind and takes the time to get to know each group. He was a joy to work with.

The site also includes some great amenities that you might miss at some other similar venues. He has nice built in bathrooms (yup, no port-a-potties!), umbrellas and heaters and some fun rentals to decorate the space.

The layout of the space makes for a great party too. Distinct spaces allow for a really nice flow, giving people space to dance or drink or have dessert. My dad also loved that the back porch essentially becomes a stage for the toasts and cake-cutting, so everyone at the event gets to see what's happening.

I have no complaints at all about Vine Hill House and am thrilled with our decision to hold our wedding there. It is a magical place that provided the perfect backdrop for our perfect day.
