  • When we started this wedding planning process we had a few venues in mind. We stopped at The Burroughs Home first and we didnt look any further! After meeting with Christine and her staff and viewing this unbelievably beautiful home we were stunned and fell in love! The detail and care that Christine takes in organizing your wedding and bringing it to life with this beautiful home are unmatched! The home is gorgeous and has the most beautiful, photogenic scenery i have ever seen. We were blown away by every elegant detail this home provides. Christine is a professional, she knows what she is doing and guides you through every little detail with ease. The home is simply breathtaking and we absolutely love being a Burroughs bride and groom. Thank you Christine and staff, you made our dream come true!!

  • Even through changing of event coordinators, the communication never failed. Gina was always there to guide and answer any of the questions I had. There is a suggestion for any vendor you may need. I can’t express enough words how breath taking this venue is. The historical home, the the oak trees on the property, to the river bank views, to the pavilion. Everything is so beautiful and there are multiple places to choose from for a backdrop for your ceremony. My wedding was absolutely perfect and I could not have picked a better venue for it. Thank you for everything Burroughs Home & Gardens.

  • I cannot say enough good things about the Burroughs Home. Not only is it a beautiful venue, but the coordinators who work there are very professional and very efficient. All of the preferred vendors were professional as well and were great with communication. But, we really couldn't get over how beautiful the venue was and how easy everything was for us on the day of the event. Getting married here was the best decision we made!

  • The Burroughs home is such a beautiful venue with the most amazing view!!! There’s nothing better than being on the water but still being surrounded by so many trees! Cindy (director of special events) was so quick to reply with all of my questions and very flexible with us. She was wonderful to work with and helped tremendously with the flow of our special day!

  • Cindy is absolutely amazing. Just so sweet and caring.. even though she is only in charge of the venue, she really went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect for me. The location was a dream. I couldn't be happier with getting married there.

  • We had a great experience with the Burroughs Home & Gardens as our wedding venue. We are not "over-the-top" people and this venue was perfect for us; simple, elegant, and timeless. There are so many different settings in this relatively small location: inside the home, the wrap porch, the gardens, the pavilion, the waterfront. It's easy to customize for different preferences and makes gorgeous natural backdrop for pictures! This property is truly unique and beautiful. The communications with the staff were seamless. We always had our questions and concerns addressed in a timely manner and the staff was very accommodating to our needs and requests. We truly loved every moment of having our wedding there and could not imagine getting married anywhere else!

  • The venue is beautiful. You have the historical beauty of the home, and the elegant garden feel in the back of the property by the river. The pavilion was perfect for our 125 guest wedding. We had plenty of room for the tables and most importantly the dance floor! We got so many amazing pictures, and I especially love the group photo they do in the front of the home. The only thing I was disappointed with was I originally thought we had the house until 10:30pm with the rest of the venue. They informed me the day of the wedding that we had to have our things out of the house by 6pm so it could be locked, and then we were being locked out immediately following the ceremony which ended at 5pm. It was a little frustrating when we wanted to get photos and video inside the home. I wasn’t able to get photos by their beautiful stair case because we were being kicked out. So, just make sure these times are clear with the staff before the wedding day comes. I still highly recommend the venue... Read more

    Kelsey we are so sorry for any confusion on the day of your wedding. The Burroughs Home is a Historic museum and it is locked once the ceremony begins to protect the home from people coming inside off of the street as well as the protection of personal items of the bridal party left in the home from theft. The home is only closed after the ceremony to the guest again for these same reasons but the Bridal party is always welcomed to come back in and take pictures if the wedding planner communicates that needs to happen. We ask that the wedding planner choose then chooses the best time to move the personal items of the wedding party from inside the Home that is most convenient so that the wedding party has access to all of their personal belongings because the house is locked for protection for the rest of the evening. Again,we are so sorry if there was miscommunication and that was your experience, but we are so happy to hear you loved the grounds and had a beautiful wedding and thank you for the review!

  • Burroughs Home was a beautiful place to have our wedding- the venue is stunning and Cindy, the events coordinator, could not be more lovely and accommodating. A day after a tropical storm we had to shift our ceremony plans from the lawn to the side porch, and it went extremely seamlessly. Additionally, they are flexible with end-times, which was great for us, since other homes we looked at were far more restrictive. The only (very minor) complaint would be the approved vendor list, which limited us to very few caterers. Beyond this, we were thrilled with the venue and the team, and would highly recommend!

  • The venue itself is stunning and made our wedding spectacular. However, six months before the wedding we had change our caterer due to legal issues, which ended up working out for the better, but was still very inconvenient during our planning process. Also, there seems to be a lot of turnover in employment and it was difficult to keep in touch with the right person. Then we found out at the rehearsal dinner that what we'd been told by the previous employee was not true and we had to change our plans. If you plan a summer wedding you will want A.C. units even if they tell you won't need them.. you will. Or at least grandma will. Also make sure you get your things out of the house early so you don't have to deal with night security. The pavillion is beautiful and the grounds are impecable and thats why we loved this place!

    Thank you Micayla for your patience during our transition time. We wish you may blessings for the future. BHG/cse

  • We had our wedding here 3 weeks ago and it was the best day of my life. The staff was great, even in the midst of job changes. Its the perfect combination of everything we wanted, the house, the water, the pavilion, and all the other little things that it has. I recommend this venue for other brides who want a little bit of every kind of view. :) They were very accommodating and great to work with :)

    Lizzie, you were a radiant bride! Your family and friends were wonderful and so devoted to making your day so special. We wish you and Nathan a future of happiness and health!

  • What a beautiful venue! I was willing to look past all of the other drama because this venue is to die for - the value is ridiculously great - and they were extremely flexible for a historic home. We did go through a few staff changes and some hiccups with them "breaking up" with their caterer (which was previously the ONLY caterer you could hire) - but the wedding was beautiful, perfect and all around amazing. If this venue can figure out it's management issues, it could easily be a 5 star experience!

    Beautiful venue befitting a Beautiful Bride - thank you Alyssa! We wish you many blessings for a happy marriage!

  • Let me be clear in saying the home is beautiful, the pavilion is perfect and the grounds are the perfect atmosphere for a special day. However the property wedding or events manager Cindy who unfortunately took over the role after we had booked our venue is a complete disservice to this wonderful venue. If it weren't for our coordinator, I probably would have left a much worse review and been incredibly unhappy with our wedding day. Upon arriving to the grounds it seemed as if Cindy and the staff forgot there was a wedding that day so I being the groom and a few groomsmen picked up lingering trash around the homes patio. Upon vendors and wedding party arriving Cindy's dog was on the ground chasing arriving vendors, guest and wedding party and of course dog go to the bathroom and unfortunately one of our wedding party members stepped in it. The icing on the cake was the terrible and completely unprofessional policy that the house be closed and locked at 6:30 and all belongings are to be... Read more
