“Stunning Venue, Wonderful People
We are so happy we chose the Rand-Bryan House for our wedding celebration. It was the perfect venue for our special day! From the initial talks when we were visiting multiple venues, to the actual day, Martha was excellent in providing us with all the necessary information and helping to make sure our day went off without a hitch. We had an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception so that we could take advantage of the many, many beautiful locations this venue has to offer. We were able to choose our own vendors, and Martha also had multiple “extras” available that we were able to take advantage of for decorating and fun during the reception. The staff at Rand-Bryan were all very detail-oriented and they truly cared about making sure our day was everything we wanted it to be. We took pictures all over the property and they turned out so amazing! This is an absolutely stunning venue with wonderful staff, and my husband and I believe it should be on your list to visit and see for yourself! You will not be disappointed!”
