Rachel G. booked an event for 35 people
Extraordinary! Gorgeous! PERFFECT! We held our wedding and reception at Grace French Manor Home and Garden and could not have been happier with how everything went. The garden and house are even more beautiful than the photos show! The house is full of beautiful details both inside and out, and the garden is a semi-hidden paradise. Edwina, the owner, is amazing. She went *far* above and beyond to make sure that everything was wonderful for our special day. We feel so grateful to her. In addition to being an expert designer with a spectacular, special home and stunning garden, she is an incredibly kind human being who thought of absolutely everything and helped us a TON in advance of the big day. She coordinated with our vendors, which made things easier, and was present on the day to help us set up and troubleshoot. We really can’t say enough good things about the whole experience. Grace French Manor Home is a true gem, a unique place to hold any event. Highly highly recommend!!!

We rented this space for the memorial of my mother, and my goodness it was an amazing experience. Edwina was incredibly helpful during the event, her space is immaculate, comfortable, and very well decorated. We received numerous compliments, and most importantly I think my mom would have loved it.
