  You will be so thrilled with all we can do for you to make your wedding day be the most it can be!  One of the best things you get by choosing us is our 20 years of experience.  Our goal is for you and your family to have the most enjoyable time together possible in a natural, beautiful, and comfortable environment that has been created just for you.  We provide and set up most things for your wedding so you and your family can fully experience all the joy of your wedding day.

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 send you a checklist for planning; you only have to contact one person (your Hitching Post wedding coordinator) about everything provided by our venue for your wedding from the decorations you want, your catering and cake choices, your reception and ceremony music, and more.   You can’t have a more relaxing and enjoyable wedding experience!

We offer a 10% military, educator, or social worker discount on any of our packages with catering included.

Any all-inclusive package can be booked for any number of guests from 20 to 250.

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.
