1812 Hitching Post Ceremony Sites

At the 1812, we have lots of ceremony location options!  Our 26 acres have shady lawns, sunny fields, quiet corrals, and tranquil lakeside settings.

Most couples decide to be married under the giant oak trees on the side yard next to the main house.  Our biggest oak tree is the largest in the county and over 300 years old.  Huge trees allow for shade all day.  Light breezes and easy access to the house add to the comfort of your guests.  The wedding party enters by walking out the front door, down the brick walkway between the boxwood bushes, and then across the lawn between the chairs to the arbor.

Your guests will appreciate the history of the charming historic farmhouse backdrop and will love touring the property and looking at all the rooms upon arrival.  Each bathroom is different and interesting.  Your guests will feel like they’ve stepped back in time.

Our tented courtyard reception area doubles as a place to hold your ceremony should the weather not cooperate.

We have several arbors that can be moved to your ceremony location; a white arch top arbor, a circle shaped arbor (moon arch), and a natural wood arbor.  You might also choose to use potted palms, other trees, ferns, flowers, and/or rented or provided arbors to achieve the look you desire. We can hang fabric from our trees or arbors.

Every wedding is different; we encourage you to express yourself and send us your ideas!
