“From the moment my wife and I drove up to Houchins we knew this stunning venue was where we wanted to have our special day. The grounds, barn and farmhouse are beautiful in every way and the team ensure every corner and aspect of the venue is of the highest standard. We can’t thank the Houchins team enough for all that they did both leading up to our wedding day and ensuring our magical day ran smoothly. No request was too much, no question too silly and the day was perfect thanks to the amazing team and all their work behind the scenes. You guys really made our day special and your venue is head and shoulders above any of your competition (trust me I was dragged around the whole of the Southeast in search of the perfect venue!) Thank you Houchins, not only from my wife and I but from all our guests who had the most amazing day. Amy & Stuart, July 2019 ”
