Thank you!! Yes, Homewood is everything you see and more! I think it is the best wedding I have ever been to. ;) However I am a little biased! ;) The staff is AMAZING!! They were there for every little thing we needed. If I would be looking for something, all of the sudden they would be there asking if they could help. Don't take that as they would follow you around, because they would not be seen but then just when I needed something, they were there to find it! It definitley kept me stress free! The price is very reasonable! They are not strict at all. They do have some rules but they are the same as any where else. They actually work with what you want and let you make it yours. It's FABULOUS!! I would highly recommend it!! :) Congrats on your engagement and I hope your wedding is as wonderful as ours!! :) Let me know if you have any other questions!! :)
I had my reception at Coleman Place which is run by the same folks at Homewood. I would have had mine at Homewood but my guest list was too big and I didn't want it outside. The place is GORGEOUS. I did not feel the staff was too strict at all and they've even said if your party is having fun, you can stay longer as long as you are willing to pay for the extra hours, which I thought was lenient compared to other places. I thought their rental rates were also reasonable/average compared to the region's other options. The staff is VERY nice and VERY easy to work with. I have worked with them for my reception and a few non-profit fundraisers and they are all great. Very professional. The place is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. Its in a very cute little neighborhood called Montford which is filled with Victorian homes and bed & breakfasts. There is a park located across the street and a little hidden area that you get to by steps where they sometimes do ceremonies. It is right next door to another business BUT the place looks like a huge mansion, so it doesn't really look that odd. I was very happy with the way my wedding went. I was on a budget and they understood that and were able to work with me.
Homewood is phenominal.
