This August wedding was as sweet as the couple who were married that afternoon. Liliya walked down the aisle at 2 pm. to live musicians after first look photos in the front gardens by Kevyn Dixon Photography. The grounds of the 1812 Hitching Post are so lush in the summertime and were the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous bride . . . . . those eyes and that romantic dress!
Live flowers on the arbor and aisle were provided by florist, Chelsea Rupp. Party favors were jars of honey that we displayed on a suitcase. The cake, provided by the 1812 Hitching Post, featured the exposed look and was made of pound cake with caramel filling and lemon cake with raspberry filling. Tables were covered in burgundy with lace overlays and centerpieces were the aisle jars along side of white lanterns and bird cages. The meal consisted of baked chicken, vegetarian ravioli, mashed potatoes, house salad, fresh rolls, fruit, and an ice cream topping bar!
Linda gave us a 5-star review on “The Knot” which I’ve posted, below. Thanks so much, Linda!
Their wedding included their children and people they loved with a special ceremony including readings and a hymn sung by the entire group. It was lovely!

The Waldrons hosted our small (bride, groom, and about 40 others) ceremony and reception at their historic home on a lovely Sunday in November. We could not have imagined a more beautiful or meticulously organized event! Through their passion for perfection and their years of experience, the Waldrons have fashioned an ideal setting for one-stop weddings. The home and grounds are welcoming and well-designed to accommodate separate dressing areas for the bridal party, waiting areas, and a variety of expandable spaces for ceremonies and receptions. It’s easier to list the items they did not provide than those that they did: we brought our own candles, clothing, and flowers for the bridal party. Bearing in mind our preferences, the Waldrons provided and expertly coordinated everything else, including the photography; silk flowers for the arbor and reception tables; a DJ and sound system for both ceremony and reception; a variety of foods and drinks for the reception; and the wedding cake. They were even prepared to furnish an officiant, if needed.
The end of September was warm and lovely for this pretty wedding featuring blush and white. Stephanie and Victor picked one of our most popular packages with our delicious BBQ menu. They were married in front of our circle arbor decorated with blush flowers provided by the 1812 Hitching Post. Stephanie’s gorgeous blush pink dress looked so feminine and fabulous! Their music included Salsa, merengue, and contemporary options. The couple had a sparkler send-off and then spent the night in the Willow Cottage where Victor picked up Stephanie and carried her in over the threshhold . . . . so romantic!

Jamie gave us a 5-star Google review (THANK YOU!!) with this post:
We live approximately 5 hours away from this venue…I had never heard of it prior to booking it. I was searching for an experience that would be all inclusive and allow us to just show up, yet still have fun celebrating. I wanted a non-stressful day, a day that I could just enjoy…a day that my family and friends could just spend time with us and enjoy before the wedding as well. We love DIY things; however, I wanted this to be different. We have the best family and friends in the world who would have stayed up all night the night before decorating if we asked them to; however, with the 1812 Hitching Post we didn’t have to!
I didn’t see the venue before I booked it, I just booked it by the photos and reviews I was able to find online. Sure there were a few negative reviews that made me a little timid about it, but man am I so glad I didn’t let them stop me! From the very beginning Wendy took time on the phone to answer every question I had, allowed payments to be made which kept it affordable, and she was quick to respond to any text message or email I sent. She prefers email communication so she can keep track of everything leading up to the day.
About a month prior to the wedding she sends a sheet for you to answer questions of what you want and how you want it. They have beautiful decor to select from…most pictured online! We gave her a list of songs (some not so popular) and picked a cake style displayed on their website.
I literally showed up the evening of our wedding. JUST SHOWED UP!!!!! Wendy and her husband are so sweet and accommodating. The home and landscaping are just breathtaking. It is an older home so don’t expect perfection, expect unbelievable history and character.
Our package included the decor for both the ceremony and reception (we only provided a couple flowers and small things), the officiant, DJ, cake, bartender, and food. The decor, perfection. The staff are just the sweetest and so professional! The food…DELICIOUS!!! The DJ, that man kept the party going until the moment we left!!!! The cake, beautiful and so tasty!!! The bartenders, kept the drinks coming and were so respectful of everyone.
If you’re wondering if you should go with this venue, please do! You won’t regret it. I had the most relaxing seamless day…and that would not have been possible without Wendy, her husband and her staff.
Wendy, from the bottom of my heart….thank you. I swear (not just because it was our wedding)….that was the best, most fun wedding I’ve been to in my life. Our guests raved about you guys!
