Weddings at Hartley House

Danielle Hamilton, Bride

"I had my wedding here and everything was so perfect. This venue provides so many options for your wedding… whether you are wanting your event inside, outside or a combination of both. We did both to be able to show off the beautiful historical charm the Hartley House has to offer...which is one of the reasons we chose this venue!"

Kaitlyn Allison, Bride

"I can not say enough good about this venue. Not only is the space STUNNING, the hospitality is incredible. We chose this venue the second we went to see it. The day of the wedding, they were nothing but helpful. We have kept in contact following the wedding because they are such great people."

Madison Behnke, Photographer

"I had the honor of photographing a wedding at the Hartley House recently. This historical home feels like a fairytale with breath taking natural light flooding in from every window. It’s the perfect backdrop for any wedding! Crystal is amazing with helping your big day run smoothly!"

Our diamond trellis jasmine wall is the ideal backdrop for your cake table or a fun photo booth! And yes, we can attach your neon sign for that extra layer of flair.

Reception SITE

Our side lawn is our most recent renovation and home to our crape myrtle garden, our courtyard fountain named Winston (He was so cute we just had to name him.), and an enormous oak tree that is over a century old. The side lawn is a popular location for ceremonies and cocktail hour.

Side Lawn

Our spacious 1000 sq. ft Bridal Suite is the perfect place to get ready for the big day. It includes a bridal dressing hall, bedroom, sitting parlor, private restroom, and private balcony (which is perfect for pics!). The bridal dressing hall offers three vanity stations, a dining table for six, and a fully stocked Starbucks coffee cart. The sitting parlor is home to our blue sofa and two oversized gold antique mirrors. These mirrors are THE location for that infamous dress picture or bridal shot. The bridal bedroom is perfect for relaxing or hanging those bridal party dresses from the bed canopy. We like to think our bridal suite is fit for a queen.

Olivia Lindower, Bride

" Crystal and John are so amazing, professional, and very helpful. They made the months leading up to our wedding stress free. We loved the venue and all it had to offer. They are enjoyable to work with and are very understanding! The inside of the over 200 year old house is decorated beautifully and can be used for any event."
