A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

  • Its history spans more than two centuries. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the John Watson House, the manor has been stunningly updated and restored and now functions as a bed and breakfast, providing a convenient place for friends and family to stay.
  • You can exchange vows in a mature pecan orchard, beneath the venue's namesake magnolia tree, or under the heritage oaks that fill the property's 13 acres. Afterward, you and your guests can gather in the Carriage House Pavilion, a rustic turn-of-the-century barn with modern amenities.
  • Their all-inclusive packages take the stress out of planning. You'll enjoy a seated buffet reception prepared by the executive chef and culinary staff, plus a wedding coordinator, a custom cake, tables, chairs, linens, and more.
