“Oh my gosh, this place is gorgeous!” That’s what our last tour exclaimed as we strolled through the 6 separate venues on 10-acres that are The Estate on the Halifax. Guests enjoying their tour tell us that sometimes pictures of venues don’t portray what the venue really looks like, but The Estate, well the pictures just don’t do it justice, it’s so much more! When we share the history with guests they are amazed that The Estate was never intentioned to be a wedding venue. Crazy!! If you were planning to create a wedding venue this would be a perfect place to plan.
The Estate is set up to have lots of room for preparations for the Bride and Groom and to have fun, enjoy and relax. It provides a great time from the beginning of the wedding day to the very NEXT day and yes we always include a honeymoon night in our exclusive use reservation. Along with that exclusive use reservation is the PRIVACY of having the entire Estate on the Halifax to yourselves, guests feel as if they are at their very own private estate enjoying this special day.
Our brides enjoy a two story, 3 bedroom 1914 home overlooking the Halifax from the front of the home to an awesome view of The Estate Gardens from the rear view of Agatha’s Guest House. Oh and let’s not forget the indoor pool and Jacuzzi while the preparations of hair and make up are happening there is always the ability to have more fun and relax while putting freshly pedicured toes into the pool and sipping Mimosas! (the pool and Jacuzzi are located indoors)!
For the groom and the groomsmen, they have the time, space and ability to enjoy their very own private train car for their preparations, not only picturesque but so much fun!
Wedding ceremonies take place in a myriad of locations The Gardens, The Gazebo, The River Walk site (all outdoors), or perhaps you are looking for The Chapel (circa 1897) for a special indoor ceremony (or a great Plan B for inclement weather). The Tavern, where indoor receptions are held will accommodate up to 250 guests for a plated event and 200 with a buffet and provides an experience that your guests will feel so very special that you shared this wonderful day and venue with them. With our private exclusive use reservation you and your guests will relax and enjoy all the amenities and the privacy of The Estate during your reservation, all day and don’t forget your honeymoon night too!
