What Our Guests Are Saying..

linebreak.png

My wife and I hosted our wedding event at Wild Wisteria B&B in Oct 2020. It was a surreal and unforgettable experience, given the difficulty of planning anything in 2020. Brad and his family were the kindest, most accommodating hosts for our wedding day guests and overnight lodgers, not to mention how they endlessly went above and beyond to cater to every need we presented.
From day 1, Brad was responsive to our inquiries, and enabled us to safely tour the location in advance of our event. He and his wife have been doing this a while and it shows. More impressive, they know the property and the history, and have been carefully updating, while preserving the historic integrity of the buildings and grounds. They care about what they do, but more so about the people they serve.
We were able to safely host our outdoor wedding, and the space was ample for both ceremony and reception. The grounds are lovely and well maintained, with endless photo settings both indoor and out. There was room enough for our guests to park, as well as accommodate our food truck catering.
We opted to utilize a 3-day package, which included overnight lodging for us and many of our bridal party. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable, and full of character; each boasting a unique and playful personality.
They put on a superb breakfast each morning, and ensured we had space for staging our wedding decor and rental equipment, as well as for day-of prep, such as private space hair/makeup for the bride/bridesmaids, our DIY floral arrangements, and food setup. It's difficult to summarize all the ways Brad and his family made us feel welcome and special for our happiest of occasions.
Thanks, Brad, Cindy, and Family! Blessings and much success in 2021 and beyond!
