Stepping Stone Museum
The site itself is absolutely gorgeous. You get the whole farm, over 100 acres, and you can have your ceremony and reception where ever you choose. Our ceremony and reception were absolutely gorgeous, thanks to the beautiful scenery and beautiful farm. Like the previous reviewer said, you get free admission to the museum for a year, which is good if you want to attend any events. We were able to get on the property to measure or have meetings whenever we wanted, which was good. The only down side of the whole process was the site coordinator, Diane. She was very difficult to get a hold of, especially in the winter to spring, because she has another business. She seemed to be pretty flexible with meetings, and was able to accommodate last minute meeting requests. We also appreciated the rental suggestions. The only problem came when we accidentally ran over the time that we were supposed to have our reception and Diane flipped out and started yelling at my parents and wedding coordinator. My coordinator tried to buffer between Diane and deal with the situation, but get on Diane's wrong side, and she can be NASTY!!! The site is perfect, but the coordinator isn't...
Beautiful site, amazing history and wonderful service. I absolutely love this place...the events coordinator is so wonderful, she makes you feel like family. This is the best location for the price. You get the whole facility to use (a small farm) for at least 8 hours. You have to get your own caterer and rentals, but for the outdoor splendor and cost it's worth every cent. You also get free membership to the museum for a year!
This place is great! It is inexpensive, and virtually up to you how you want to plan out your ceremony and reception. They have various outdoor spaces where both can be held, and you can have as little or as many people as you want. They also have lists of vendors they have used, for chair and tent rentals, food etc. if you need some ideas. One time we were supposed to go on a tour and pay our deposit and the woman who was supposed to meet us did not show up, other then that we had no problems with them! A great site if you really want to design your own wedding!
