Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • You’ll feel the world fade away as you step into the secluded Veiled Garden. This tranquil, one-acre ceremony site is surrounded by lush forest and complemented by a meandering cobblestone pathway, dramatic arch and stunning waterfall.
  • You’ll find tradition and serenity tucked into the woods at Abernethy Chapel. A beamed cathedral ceiling and tall arched windows overlooking leafy treetops completes the mood.
  • You’ll appreciate the nice mix of indoor and outdoor areas for both ceremonies and receptions. From the 5-acre Abigail’s Garden to the 5,000-square-foot Abernethy Ballroom, you can create your own dream setting in every season.
