"Thank you for everything. Your home is truly magical. We couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding. Some of the guests even said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Though we are sad to have to leave, we know we will hold onto the memories we made here, for years to come. We hope to see you again in the future! Also, please give the fairies our love and gratitude when you see them next. Their gifts and warm wishes were the icing on the cake to such a wonderful day. We wish you both the best!

"Joy and Cliff were amazing to work with. Their venue was perfect for my wedding. I didn't even need any decorations, the beautiful venue was enough. My family and friends are still talking about the house and grounds. My niece was my flower girl and she thought the swing set was the best part of the reception. The garden in back was perfect for the before pictures. Once again, thank you Joy and Cliff, for helping make the day perfect."

"The Lightwood House was such an amazing experience for me and my wife. First of all, Cliff was beyond helpful and catered to our EVERY need. He went above and beyond to make sure our special day was absolutely perfect for us....He is the type of man you absolutely want on your team when preparing for such a glorious day. We had our reception, which had an estimated 40 people, and it couldn't have been any more beautiful. The scenery was inspiring and peaceful, and my dogs absolutely loved the amount of land they had to roam. All of our guests were in awe of the beauty of this home.... I fell in love with this place."

I had to move our wedding up from April 2018 to November 2017 because my father became ill. Searching for a venue was exhausting to say the least, and it was by sheer accident I came across Lightwood Plantation House. It was the best accident I could have hoped for. The location was so beautiful, very little was added to the ceremony or reception; we let nature speak for itself. The house that my family and loved ones were able to stay in was breathtaking, especially for my Dad, who was happy the large tub was on the first floor; he said it was just for him. The part that made this place super special was that we did not have to rush to set up or prepare; we were able to have the grounds and house from Friday to Sunday, which was a big, big help. Cliff and Joy were absolutely amazing; they went above and beyond, and Cliff even created an amazing fire pit for us to gather around. He lined the walkway with torches, so guests could walk back and forth to their cars [after dark.] This couple truly goes the extra mile to make sure that this [Lightwood] will stay in your heart forever. My newly minted husband has said he would love to come here for our anniversary, because we loved it so much, and because of the warmth that Cliff and Joy showed us, as well as the breathtaking ambiance of the home and woods that made this a wonderful affair. If you're looking for the perfect place to get married, this is it. It's a gem hidden in the woods."

"I can't even begin to express how wonderful our stay here was. We and our guests loved every inch of the property and the beautiful setting for the wedding and reception. I hope more people discover this hidden gem and share it with their friends and family!"

"Thank you so much Cliff and family for opening your home to our family and friends on one of the most important days of our lives. On October 19th, I married the love of my life, and the property and house were perfect for both the wedding and reception. I could not have chosen a more magical and fairytale-like location! The vibes I got from the home and land were warm and inviting and I think it helped add some whimsical ambiance to an already magical evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will have to come back again!"

"Danielle and Jason were married here on October 12, 2019. Our weekend and wedding could not have been more perfect! All our guests were able to feel the magic of the house and grounds. We are so honored that Cliff and Joy invited us into their home, making it the place we get to start our new lives together as husband and wife....We look forward to returning to Lightwood House for many years to come!"

"Thank you, Cliff, for helping us to have such a beautiful wedding! Lightwood House was the perfect venue for us, and we're thankful we were able to stay a few extra days to fully enjoy it! We appreciate all of the little touches you put into making our stay, and our wedding, that much more special. 'Thank you' to your son, Thomas, as well for his help! Thank you for playing during our ceremony--that was so lovely and made it more intimate! And thank you for helping with the kegs! Until we meet again..." (Danielle)
