Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Wed in an Enchanted Garden inspired by the famous author's poem "To One In Paradise". Tucked in the back courtyard of a quaint stone house, this walled oasis feels miles away from the bustling city streets.
  • You'll find references to Poe's writings hidden throughout the garden—a shrine built from bricks of the newspaper office where he once worked, ivy taken from the grave of his late wife, Eliza, and more. Though Poe's works lean toward the macabre, this romantic space is anything but.
  • It's one of the most affordable venues in the area, you're free to bring in any vendors of your choosing, and you'll have the assistance of an experience event coordinator to help you orchestrate all the details. Plus, your rental fee goes toward the continuing operation of this unique historic treasure.
