Had our wedding at Locust Grove in April of 2018 and it was perfect. The process was very smooth and everything was easy, taking one part of the stress away from our wedding. The grounds were amazing for photos and our guests were able to explore the gardens and trails before the ceremony started. The cherry blossoms were out for our photos so couldn't have been more perfect!
Beautiful hiking trails, a little steep and Rocky at points so wear sturdy shoes (and you might want to have some bug spray too). The grounds are very pretty, and a wedding was being set up as we were on our walk, it's a great venue!
