“We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at The Carriage Pavillion at The Wade House and it was absolutely amazing! The venue was perfect and Stephanie was so easy and great to work with! Our day was incredibly special and The Wade House and Stephanie were a large reason why! We were able to have the wedding we wanted and that was so meaningful to my husband and I. Thank you!”

“Our wedding was originally scheduled for October of 2020 but, because of COVID, was cancelled. Wade House was so great and flexible through the entire process – not only as we were deciding how to navigate COVID, but also after we decided to cancel when they were willing to refund our non-refundable deposit. We really appreciate their flexibility during this uncertain time and highly recommend them!”
