“The wedding venue of Long Branch Historic House was perfect for the theme I wanted to present to my fiancé on her special day. I wanted her to feel like a princesses, and this venue definitely delivered!

Our wedding day was picturesque and something out of a movie With no clouds in the sky, the venue provided amazing character which few venues are able to replicate. Long Branch has the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains as a back drop, budding roses in an onsite rose garden, a long Gone With The Wind type of driveway and some of the most graceful horses I have ever seen along the path to the house.

As I stood in the garden waiting to get a glimpse of my bride, I felt like a King, but when she exited the house, my breath was taken away, and I melted!!

The staff was excellent. There is an Executive Director who quotes and knows the history of the site which includes all previous owners of the property. Additional knowledge was also conveyed about the history of the surrounding County. The history lessons alone kept us (the bridge/groom) intrigued and excited to visit the site over and over again!.

There is also an onsite wedding coordinator who was fun and easy to work with. In addition, and unbeknownst to us, she is a talented artist & a wonderful sign maker — if you want to see her work, pay attention when you enter the property.

When you have all of your visiting friends & family ask you how you found this breathtaking oasis, you know you picked the right place.

If you want your bride to feel like a princess on her special day, pick Long Branch Historic House. You definitely will not be disappointed!”
