  • “From the first time we met Martha and saw the Rand-Bryan House to the final day, we were impressed! The house and grounds are lovely and very private and perfect for the size of group we planned for our 50th anniversary. Martha was very personable and accomodating for our questions and needs and was present for the six hours of our celebration, in case a need arose. She also recommended our wonderful caterer, who we were thrilled with. We would definitely use the Rand-Bryan House for an event in the future—maybe a granddaughter??”

  • “The Rand -Bryan House is the perfect elegant Southern/Country wedding venue. The owner, Martha, was very responsive to emails and was willing to meet with me and my husband one weekend, as well as my parents another weekend, who traveled from out of town to see the venue. She will answer any questions a new bride may have. She also had a list of recommended vendors that I used (rentals/DJ/caterers) . The grounds and house are beautiful. The photographer took many great pictures outside near the barn, and the dining room is beautiful the way it is, no need for many extra decorations! This is a great outdoor-indoor wedding venue.”

  • “From day one Martha was punctual and responded quickly to our emails. She was upfront with all the expectations that came along renting the home, including allowing us nearly free-reign to decorate inside and outside. This meant we were able to turn the house into our dream wedding! Martha’s team helped coordinate and navigate the planning process alongside other vendors, including our catering, bartending, day-of coordinating, DJ and photography. The whole process was seamless!”

  • “Who knew that you could have a country wedding in the city? Finding Rand-Bryan House (RBH) was such a nice surprise! The venue is beautiful and the grounds are well kept. Martha, the owner, was so helpful with guiding us on some of the decision making along the way. Our wedding was on Memorial Day weekend and temperatures soared into the upper 90s. We still got married outside, but it was nice that after the ceremony guests could go inside to cool off when they needed to. I would highly recommend RBH to anyone looking to have an “out in the country” feel to their special event.”

  • “We were so happy with the rand bryan house. I only wanted to look at one venue that fit what I wanted: century home with southern charm that had beautiful outdoor space. I knew when we visited that it was the perfect venue. Martha was great from the beginning and helped with a quick response anytime we had a question. We were allowed to have our dog in the wedding and when the rain came, she and her daughter wiped down the dancefloor so we could use it. Never would have used another venue! I wish I could live in that house!”
