Consultation/Booking Process

My fiancé and I dropped in to see Boar’s Head after seeing another venue. We like it so much I brought my mom back the following weekend, and by the end of the day, we knew it was the place for us! It ... Read more blended my fiancé and mine’s styles perfectly, and there were so many options for how we wanted to get ready the day of, set up our reception, and additional activities for us and our guests. I am especially looking forward to using the on-site spa to relax prior to our wedding! Rebecca provided us with so much quality information, and put us at ease with the process, which can seem overwhelming at times. Absolutely go check them out!!

We are so happy we picked the Boar's Head for our wedding venue. We held our rehearsal dinner in the Ednam Room and our reception was in the Pavilion Grand Ballroom. Esme Pitard was such a pleasure to ... Read more work with, throughout the entire year leading up to the wedding, and during the entire weekend. She was very organized and kept us on track with planning. We had an amazing tasting about a month before, tasting 3 full entrees, several hors' d'oeuvres, and then such a fantastic cake tasting display. The Boar's Head is a fantastic venue because you can get so much in one place. The rooms were beautiful with a southern charm, not to mention balconies or patios on every room. There are several options for rehearsal dinner and receptions depending on the size of your party. The Ednam Room had a nice outdoor courtyard which was nice for Friday night. The Pavilion has a beautiful prefunction space and the ballroom is just as it's labeled: "grand." We went to the "Racquets Restaurant" for the after party both nights which had a nice patio with fire pits. We also had several options for pictures before and after the ceremony- some backdrops included flowers, willow trees, the lake, brick walkways, and even the rooms and hallways. We had good experiences with all of the staff, and especially want to thank Esme. Best day of our lives!
