My daughter and I were really tough customers to please, but Melissa worked with us to help make my daughter's day her dream wedding. The ballroom was set to perfection and was so beautiful. The event was truly fantastic, and all the guests raved about the entire evening. I would definitely recommend The Hudson Manor for your dream wedding!

I fell in love with the Hudson Manor the first time I saw it! I had looked at a lot of different venues, but this one was PERFECT! It had every single accomodation you could think of! An amazing plantation house to get ready in, beautiful gardens, a wedding chapel and a stunning grand ball room for the reception! It was everything that I had wanted and more! The property is gorgeous and awesome for pictures! The owner, Melissa, was very attentive, flexible and made sure everything was perfect for my special day! She went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with everything! The food was EXCELLENT! All of my guests told me that it was the best wedding food they have ever had and the cake was spectacular! I am extremely satisfied and incredibly happy about how everything turned out! I would highly recommend this venue! It is the perfect place for a beautiful wedding!

Thank you so much for all you did to make Chris and Amanda's wedding beautiful. Everything was perfect. The gardens and yard were very pretty. We couldn't have asked for better weather. The reception hall and the outdoor patio area was spectacular. Very simple but elegant. Just what Amanda wanted. And the food.... Everything was delicious. I wish I could have eaten more.
Thank you also for all your help the last few months as we were planning everything. One can tell that you have put on a wedding or two! You were a joy to work with. In addition, your vendor list is the best. Everyone was very professional and wonderful to work with.
Thanks again for all your help and for making a very special day for the best looking couple in North Carolina!

Melissa & Glenn,I wanted to thank you both for doing such a great job for Kristen & Doug's wedding July 2. Since this was my third wedding in two years for one of my children and knowing I was in Texas and Kristen was getting married in North Carolina, I was a little, well OK, a lot nervous about how I was going to help plan her wedding. When she first told me about the Hudson Manor, I thought, wow, that sounds like a great place for a wedding. After she and Doug first went out to meet with you, she called me on her way home to tell me all about it. I knew this was a dream come true! I told her to turn the car around and book her wedding. I was so excited to find some place that would help with the planning, do all the coordinating, had the decorations, catered the food, provided everything that we would need all in one place. Even though Kristen decided on her own DJ and bakery for the cake, I was so relieved to know that I didn't have to figure out how to get everything else to come together.The venue was so beautiful, everyone commented on how nice the wedding was. The food was great, and it just seems like everything flowed perfectly. When I show pictures of the Hudson Manor, I usually hear "Wow!" I never worried once that things wouldn't get done, you had everything so organized. So with all that said, I want to thank you again for creating such a memorable and wonderful day not only for Kristen and Doug, but for me and our guests!
Thank you!Betsy Kern

"Just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything!!!! When Dana walked into the BEAUTIFUL ballroom, she said to me, “Mama, this is what I have always dreamed of and more!” This statement made me the happiest mama in the world!!! And I owe that all to you. You are an AMAZING wedding director/planner! I could not have done any of this without your help, guidance and patience! I will be forever GRATEFUL! The Hudson Manor grounds looked like a painting! So green and so well manicured. Beautiful plants everywhere. We could not have picked a more beautiful venue than THE HUDSON MANOR! Dana and I plan on writing an A+++++ review for your website. Please tell your husband and his staff that the food and service was OUT OF THIS WORLD! Everyone loved it!!! Also, please tell Marie that she did an AWESOME job with all the décor in the ballroom. It was absolutely breathtaking!!!!!
I wish you and your family true happiness. It has been an honor and a pleasure working w/ you. "

It was a dream come true for Kim and Heath and I am sure will be a truly wonderful memory. We had guests from nine different states and overseas tell us all afternoon and evening how wonderful The Hudson Manor was... You and your staff made us feel that you had invited us into your home and for that I am forever thankful...The decorations, food, tables, outside setting and dressing rooms were first class. All your staff was very attentive to the needs of my guests and those with special needs...You truly went far above what I have seen in my 41 years as a wedding photographer.

Michael and I had a wonderful time at our wedding and reception. I could not have asked for a better experience. Everything from the initial planning to the actual wedding day seemed so smooth, especially with us not living in the Raleigh area. Melissa, you made the wedding day stress disappear! Many of the guests were commenting about the beauty of the Hudson Manor and how perfect it was for a wedding. It truly was perfect! Thank you to everyone that helped make the day so special for us.

"I wanted to take the time in between planning for summer camps to let you know how much I appreciate all you did to make Matt and I's special day soooo memorable.
I have always dreamt up a classic southern wedding and nothing could have been done to make our day more perfect.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to spread the word for you!"

I cannot believe it’s almost 2 years since Jay and I have been married, we still look at the video and are totally amazed how much you put into our wedding, the whole décor, the trimmings, everything, it was just truly amazing, and we had such a wonderful day/night, and of course so did our guests, and to this very day, it still gets much discussion!!!. I could not of wished for a more fantastic day, the weather even stayed great for us, and you were absolutely awesome, as I knew you would be, I did not have to stress about anything, didn’t need to, I knew I was in great hands…..so THANK YOU again for making our day very pleasurable.
