Why a Hamilton Place at Pursell Farms Wedding is Every Bride’s DREAM

Right up front, there is one thing you need to know about Hamilton Place at Pursell Farms. This venue was built with you in mind. Yes you, Miss Southern Bride! The entire place positively shines with southern charm and aesthetic, and it has everything you need for your perfect wedding day.

What makes Hamilton Place such a perfect venue?

The Pursells had four daughters, all four of whom have had their own weddings. So when the Pursells built a wedding venue, they knew the challenge of finding a venue that was just right! In order to make Hamilton Place perfect, they worked with professional wedding planners on its design. The result? Absolutely stunning!

The property is a total of 22 acres, and there are 81 rooms between the various buildings on property. And they never book more than one wedding per day. Which means that when you book Hamilton Place at Pursell Farms, you have exclusive access to everything it offers!

When you and your girls get ready, you’ll most likely want to take advantage of the gorgeous and historic Hamilton House. The glass enclosed sunporch will have you glowing with warm natural light!

The groom and groomsmen will be well taken care of, too. Between the cabins and cottages and 40 rooms in the Inn at Pursell Farms, they will have no shortage of options to get ready.

When it comes time for the ceremony, the best option is the lawn overlooking the lake. The carefully maintained landscape is such a stunning backdrop for your first step into the rest of your life! After the ceremony, you can head over to the terrace or into the ballroom for the reception.

The ballroom also serves as a backup plan for both the ceremony and reception in case of rain, as long as you have less than 125 guests. For larger weddings, Pursell Farms can work with you to secure a tent as a backup.

If you book Hamilton Place at Pursell Farms, you can go ahead and cross “find a caterer” off your checklist.

The venue provides all on-site catering for receptions and rehearsal dinners, and they will work with you to create the menu of your dreams! However, you do have a bit more free reign when it comes to the cakes. The in-house caterers are happy to build a cake you’ll love, but you are free to pick an outside vendor if there’s just one wedding cake you’ve always dreamed of.

In addition to the in-house catering, the ballroom has a built-in wooden bar. There are also two satellite bars that can be moved wherever they’re needed.

And whether you’re booking a live band or using a DJ, there is ample room for setup! The ballroom has a dedicated alcove, big enough for a 12-piece ensemble. Or your band can set up outside, since there are electrical outlets in every column on the terrace!

When you see all that Hamilton Place at Pursell Farms has to offer, it’s easy to see why brides would dream of this place. But why dream when you can see it yourself? Send an email to or request a booking proposal through their website, and they’ll help you set up a time to visit!
