"I absolutely love Boone Hall Plantation. Everything about this venue is magical and I cannot recommend it enough. Natalie, the on site coordinator, is absolutely fabulous and a must-have if you are planning your wedding from out of town. Overall, wonderful experience with this venue. "

"Boone Hall Plantation is the best place to have a wedding! The staff is amazing and the location so diverse and beautiful. We opted for the package to get married in front of the house and reception at the Cotton dock. The weather had other plans--including a power outage! Thanks to the dedicated staff making sure a generator got hooked up and a quick decoration change on the Dock, I was able to have a wedding that looked like it was always meant to be that way and not just a rainy day back up. Love them! "

"Natalie was wonderful to work with! She responded promptly to emails, phone calls, and helped to make sure our wedding day went exactly as planned. I would highly recommend Boone Hall Plantation for your venue! You cannot beat the exquisiteness of the plantation; it speaks for itself! "

"Boone Hall couldn't be more stunning! It is the perfect mixture of southern charm and rustic elegance. We had both a plantation ceremony, and a barn-like reception with the Cotton Dock. Plus, being featured in The Notebook makes this location the epitome of romance! While it is true you have to bring in everything (kitchen, tables, linens), with such a gorgeous blank space you can create your ideal wedding so easily!"

"A Thursday wedding here allowed us to get on their calendar quicker and save some money on the venue rental price. The cotton dock was super cute and not too hot without ac. They sprayed for bugs beforehand but not sure that was a necessary cost."

"It was wonderful working with Boone Hall Plantation and the price was right. I was disappointed that there was no place for the bridal party to stay prior to the ceremony. Also, each part of the plantation needs to be rented separately. Other than that everything was wonderful! "

"You can't ask for a more elegant, rustic setting. It's hard to take a bad picture in a place so beautiful. Boone Hall was very easy to work wit, we always had access to the venue, and we would highly recommend the venue. "

"We loved working with Boone Hall as the venue for the wedding. Our guests couldn't stop saying how beautiful it was and it was everything we could have ever dreamed of. When my husband and I visited before signing the contract we knew then that this was the place for our reception. The Cotton Dock was secluded and romantic but also had a great vibe for a good time!

"The venue was excellent! We used the cotton dock for both the ceremony and reception and it was plenty of space for over 100 guests. The restrooms were nice but you do have to bring in a mobile kitchen for food. The scenery and atmosphere cannot be beat!"
