Confederate Memorial Hall Reviews & Ratings
Had my wedding here. It was beautiful. Ms. Rose was so kind.
Do we really need racist Confederate "memorials"? Not a historical place but a memorial. Gross. A wedding gift paid for by the slave trade....
The Bleak House was a gorgeous venue for our wedding. In the beginning of planning stages, the staff were great to work with and communicated well. The person who usually assisted with weddings was out of town the week of our wedding. We had communicated with person who covering what time All Occasion rentals would arrive to set up the day before. All Occasions arrived with no there to let them in. The person did not show up till 3 hours later. On that same day we notices that the grounds flowers and greenery had been sprayed the week before. Plants were dead and there were no flowers. We had to rush out and buy ferns and flowers to fill in the empty spaces. On the day of the wedding my family and I arrives at 9am to finish setting up. Again there was no one there to let us in. The person covering did not have her phone on and my uncles had to remove the bolts on the gates so we could set up. The house was locked and photographers were there to take pictures of the our rings and the dress. We had to call Board Members to come and unlock the house. It wasn't till 11:30 someone finally showed. About an hour before the wedding we were finishing up pictures the parking lot security was allowing people to walk through house. The person who didn't show up to tell us in both days recognized a wedding guest as a friend. She then decided to give a tour of house while the wedding party was still in the house. I had to go hide in a bathroom because i did not want to be seen before the wedding. the venue is beautiful, the history of house is amazing, but it ran by volunteers. As a bride be prepared for lack of professionalism and over communicate.
I have photographed several sessions at Bleak House and am always inspired by the house and grounds. It photographs so beautifully! And the lake views are stunning. The staff have always been so kind and helpful, and have always been gracious to clients. I highly recommend this beautiful venue for your event!
Great little point of history. History buffs like me will enjoy it
