Specializing in All-inclusive Weddings

 Come visit the Hitching Post; an 18-room historic farm house with 26 acres of manicured lawns, fields, lake, and trails. We specialize in hosting all-inclusive weddings.  You won’t find another place like us.   We know wedding planning can be complicated and overwhelming so we have designed the  Hitching Post so your wedding is both enjoyable and  easy for you AND your friends and family.

The vintage farmhouse started out as a log cabin in 1812 with additions in 1850 and 1934.  It is now a sprawling 6000 square foot farmhouse with dressing rooms, living rooms, and 4 restrooms for you and your guests.   You’ll step back in time; it’s the perfect backdrop for your garden party wedding!

There are 26 private acres of grounds for you to choose where you’d like to have your ceremony and photos.  The main house is open to you and your guests throughout your event and the patio area with string lights and firepit are the perfect backdrop for your reception.  We can coordinate all set-up, decorations, food, and beverages for you (you make all the choices) or you can book just the venue and take care of the details yourself.  We want you to have the wedding that YOU want!

Many brides hope and dream for a magical, unique wedding and reception, but are overwhelmed with all the choices and the coordination of vendors.  We help eliminate that frustration and hassle. You don’t have to coordinate bookings; we do everything for you that you don’t want to do yourself.  Our venue includes top quality services in one place for your benefit.   We specialize in complete wedding packages for busy couples who want to leave the work of their wedding to us so that they can fully enjoy their special day.

We know your time is valuable and that your first question is likely, “Can I afford all of this?” We’ve designed our prices so you can say “yes!” We know we’re an amazing value. Couples who choose us for their weddings said they knew right away that this was where they wanted to get married.  Many people tell us they searched and searched until they finally found us and others say that we were the first place they found and they looked no further.

Tour our grounds, view our photos, and read the testimonials of our couples. If you are a couple who deserves a wedding this special, please email, text (704) 437-1710, or call to schedule a visit to come see us if possible.

Many couples plan weddings from a distance out of necessity. If you are unable to visit before your wedding, we’ll email you regularly to keep you updated on things and will be happy to answer any question you have. I know you are nervous and this is a very important day. We’re in the business of happiness and take our responsibility to you very seriously.

Don’t know where to start?  We can customize a package just for you.   Please visit our Plan and Price page to receive pricing based on your own celebration choices.

  There is no better way for us to show you the magic of the 1812 Hitching Post than through our photography, so we’ve packed the web site with lots of photos  that you can use to help imagine what your own wedding will be like.   Every wedding is different here because every couple is different! We strive to capture each couple’s unique expressions of love for each other.

We invite you to make an appointment to visit us at the 1812 Hitching Post.   You’ll be so glad you found us!  Be sure to read our reviews and view our  Featured Weddings!
