The house is beautiful. That is about the only thing that is good about this place.

The owner is rude and very unprofessional. They talk a good game and sell you the reception of your dreams until the day of the event. That is when the true colors come out. She will "nickel and dime" you to death and even then they will still sell you short. She wouldn??t even put water in our toast glasses and I had to leave the toasting to fill up our glasses with champagne. I was very humiliated to say the least.

Did I mention the cake? It was good, according to the few guests that actually got a piece. My wife and I wouldn??t know because we never got a piece.

Did I mention the DJ? The DJ plays on his phone the whole time, and is just as rude as the owner. We would have been better off bringing our IPods and letting them play on shuffle mode.

Did I mention the food? Well the food was ok. My wife and I were about 45 minutes late to the reception due to photos. Since we were a little late, she denied our $400 security deposit. Her reasoning was that the food had gotten cold. I don't think that should be a concern of hers since I paid an outrageous amount for the food anyway.

If you don't utilize her business for all phases of your wedding (wedding, reception, photography, flowers, planner, etc.), then you can pretty much kiss your deposit goodbye.

There were several other negative that came about at the reception that I didn??t even know about until after the reception. I know at least 50 of the 75 guests that attended had some sort of negative comment and/or experience with the owners/staff.

I deeply regret the sole fact that I did not research the reviews prior to contracting the Wilhite House. Every negative review on this business was right on target with our experience.

I am terribly sorry to my friends and family that attended our reception at the Wilhite House. It was truly embarrassing for my wife and I as to how the owner of this business acted on the most important day of our lives.

Pros: none

Cons: rude to the guests, family, and the bride and groom

.

The Wilhite House made our wedding day enjoyable, calm, and forever memorable. They offer the DJ, savory food, wedding cake, decoration, coordinator, and even photography, all for a phenomenal price! This really is the all-inclusive package.

The Wilhite House offered creativity that many venues simply do not; they work with the bride in order to achieve her dream-day. I gave Lori a single photo of flowers, and she & Cheryl were able to produce a tablescape that not only matched my colors perfectly, but was breathtaking. I felt like the only & most important bride in the world!

Did I mention the cake?
They offer a unique alternative to traditional cake??the Faux cake (I highly recommend it). Existing of only one ??real? layer, the faux cake allows the bride & groom to have the ??cutting of the cake? while guests are served immediately and without mess. Cake embellishment is nearly limitless as it doesn??t have to be edible! As far as the quality of the cake, this was something from Grandma??s kitchen (the raspberry sauce drizzled over each individual piece made this cake superlative). Lori also crafted a divine chocolate-on-chocolate groom??s cake that was out of this world visually, not to mention, mouth-watering!

We chose the buffet style hors d??oeuvres, and I couldn??t have been happier. As mentioned, the tablescape was custom designed and complete with fruit & vegetable carvings. The food was elegant and of course, delicious. The cranberry based punch is a must-have.

We also chose Lori to be our photographer??a choice I am forever grateful! She was professional, creative, and willing to get down and dirty (ie lie down in the grass) to get those shots that other photographers simply miss.

The Wilhite House was everything I dreamed my wedding would be. The beautiful grounds, dcor of the historic home, friendly staff, and careful attention to detail make this venue truly magical and unique from others.

To Lori, Cheryl, and Wilhite House staff-- thank you so much for making my day unforgettable!!!!!

Pros: wonderful cake, beautiful setting, friendly staff

Cons: Possibility of inclement weather

I recently coordinated a wedding at The Wilhite House. After we booked I found several negative reviews online and was secretly very concerned. Every time we met with Lori and the staff they were friendly and professional which contradicted the reviews, yet as the day approached I have to admit I was nervous.

Boy was I surprised, right at the very beginning Lori caught a potential problem that we had overlooked and scrambled around to fix it. The staff was prompt, courteous and professional. The music went exactly as planned and the dance floor was full?the DJ was friendly and funny. The food was exceptional, as weddings go, as was the cake and punch. The facility was beautiful. And at the end of the night, I told Lori about the negative reviews and gave her my word I would write a positive review on that site, which is why I am writing today.

After much contemplation looking back on my friend??s wedding day, compared to the negative reviews, I am convinced that some people don??t read the paperwork, they don??t appreciate the fact that any place you go is going to have guidelines, and that just because you rent a place, doesn??t mean you can do what ever you want, however you want and maybe, just maybe, the very people who write that everything was so bad, had such a bad attitude that it caused the bad situation (if there even was a bad situation!)

In closing, I would like to add that a person who writes that one thing wasn??t perfect: cake, music, food, etc., might be taken seriously. But a person who writes that everything is wrong is just plain vindictive.

This place advertises to be all inclusive and is anything but. We were nickle and dimed left and right. The staff was rude to us and our guests, the DJ was playing with his phone instead of playing music, he was rude to anyone who made a request. They didn't serve us champaign for the toast, they took us to the wrong hotel. And they were rude and unprofessional about everything come the day of the wedding. Beware, they talk a good game and sell you a fairytale, but all they deliver is a nightmare. If you were hoping for stress free, all inclusive, and affordable like I was, this place will seriously disapoint both you and your bank account.

Pros: cake was good

Cons: rude and unaccomadating, no customer service

.

My experience at the Wilhite House was nothing short of extraordinary. I chose the Wilhite House even though it was hours away, because they offered all of the high-end details that would have cost 4 times as much in my home town.

From the moment I stepped onto the property, I knew that this was the place I would have the wedding fairytale I had always dreamed of. I was immediately greeted with the perfect mix of professionalism and southern hospitality (I would have never guessed they were from the West cost!)

I never felt like I was being "sold" anything, Lori and the rest of the staff were always going above and beyond to attend to every detail and solve every problem, even ones I hadn't considered. And when I asked for something unique (serving lemonade to our guests as they arrived for a touch of southern hospitality), Lori and her creative team zipped into action to make it happen! The chef, Cheryl, even found my favorite and rare cheese for our buffet table!

Having this professional staff handle every detail was incredibly helpful, especially since I was planning my wedding from out of town. All of the terms were clearly explained to me, every email and phone call was answered promptly and courteously. And when I showed up the morning before my wedding, it was perfect! Not a petal out of place!

The food was a show stopper! It was as delicious as it was beautiful. From the intricate fruit carvings to the fresh raspberry puree served alongside my chocolate wedding cake, every bite was tasty! And the guests kept going back for more! And boy, do these west-coasters know their wine!

Josh, the DJ, and I corresponded beforehand and created a script and playlist. He was very professional and did an excellent job engaging the crowd. People danced until the very last song and LOVED the karaoke!

We had guests from all over the country and a European diplomat in attendance. Even now we're still getting compliments on how our wedding was both comfortable and elegant and was a perfect representation of both my husband and I.

I couldn't have asked for more competent, professional and downright friendly people to work with to make my wedding happen. The Monroe's were truly a blessing to us, our family and our guests. And I'm proud to call them friends.

I had my event at the WIlhite House and it was the best decision I could have ever made.

All I had to do was show up! Every detail was taken care of by Lori and her competent staff. I enjoyed working with them during our planning sessions and on the day of my event....awesome attitudes and great personalities! Food was delicious, staff friendly and helpful, my guest were very impressed.

What can I say other than if you are looking for a venue that will do it all with no worries I highly recommend the Wilhite House.

Pros: Organized, Pleasant

The Wilhite House has had over 175 weddings over the past 5 years and our list of happy brides far exceeds the list of those who have not been pleased. A long list of testimonies from very happy brides can be found at our WilhiteHouse website on the testimony page.

It would not be honest to say that all brides have been happy about everything we do but it is truthful to say that myself and our staff put sincere effort, energy and determination into each and every wedding to assure it is as close to perfect as possible.

Because we are a full service facility and offer all of the components of a wedding, it leaves us open to more scrutiny than we would get if we offered just the venue, just the catering, or just the cake, etc. On the flip side of that, we offer so many of the components that it saves time and effort on the bride's part when pulling her wedding together. And, there is never a guarentee that other vendors would do things any different than we do.

When reading reveiws of The Wilhite House that are unfavorable, we are committed to looking at them realistically and not simply dismissing them as unjust. When a person writes that virtually everything was wrong with a wedding, right down the the way we were dressed, I honestly have to say that that person is writing with prejudice and inaccuracy... Our weddings are beautiful and the majority of the time come off without a hitch!!

Myself and my husband moved to Anderson in 2004 and opened for business in 2005. When we arrived we didn't know anyone; our family being on the west coast. Today we have a long list of friends and many of them are former brides and their famlies!! In fact we receive invitations to celebrations nearly every year from famlies of former brides! Likewise, former wedding famlies are on our invitation list to parties. I have a former bride who lives in Charlotte who stops by to visit or bring a surprise gift (she knows exaclty what I like!) everytime she and her husband are in Anderson. And I, in turn send her home with home baked cookies! She, like many others, were so pleased with The Wilhite House and myself and my husband, that we have become long-term friends.

When a bride makes the decision to book her wedding at The Wilhite House, we make a committment to offering as much assistance as possible to make her day perfect: we have installed dimmer switches throughout the house because a bride asked that we dim the lighting, we have made curtains for privacy because a bride told us she would like to eat in a room where no one could see her.
We also make it a point to "gift" something to every bride, whether it is the cake platform, upgrade to the centerpieces, upgrade to the reception chair ties or one of our other great options.

We have built our business with n honesty that includes providing ALL the costs of a wedding including tax, gratuity and security deposit before a bride chooses to book...we do not hide anything.

Also, it is noteworthy to mention that at least 50% of our staff, including our chef, are family members of former events...The Wilhite House must have made these people very happy in order for them to desire to work here.

We know that you will find negative reviews on this site. I have considered contacting our happy brides and asking them to plaster this site with positive reviews but decided instead, to approach it personally and with integrity and trust that those who read reviews will acknowledge that there are ALWAYS two sides to a story and will take the time to look on our website at the positive reviews that are posted there as well.

We invite any of you to meet with us, become facebook friends with us and dozens or our brides, past, present & future, question us about your concerns and allow us to share our side to the story!

I had my wedding at the Wilhite House in May of 2009. At first, it seemed like the staff was professional and had all the right answers. The presentation was very impressive. However, this was only until you sign the contract. Then, the real people come out. Lori Monroe was very controlling. She was watching my guests as if they were thieves. Children are definitely not welcome at the facility. On my wedding day, which was dressy, she showed up in a pair of pajama bottoms (the same ones she had on the previous day at the rehearsal) and a cotton T-shirt. Her husband wasn't any better in a straw hat, shirt, and jeans. She tries to squeeze every dollar out of your pocket.

I was disappointed with the food also. We had plenty, however, when my husband and I went back to our hotel we opened the basket with our plates pre-fixed and half of the things on the buffet were missing. It wasn't even enough food to feed a child let alone 2 starving adults. We ended up going to Wendy's.

The caterer has no idea what is going on. She answers the phone, but can't answer any questions. She has to check with Lori on everything. Then don't let her answer phone calls. I became very frustrated with the two of them as the wedding day approached. My wedding coordinator was also not fond of their "changed attitude."

The bridal room did not have any lights due to some safety issue with the fire department. The lemonade they offered was watered down and horrible. The staff uniforms were old and needed to be cleaned. Overall, I would never recommend this place. There are plenty of other places that I believe would do a much better job. Beware, they talk a good talk, but this place has anything but Southern Hospitality. Prejudice is more like it.

Pros: Food was decorated nicely

Cons: Very controlling and manipulative owner

DO NOT use this site. The staff is very nice until they get your money. After you have signed the contract, they try to get as much money out of you as possible. Although your wedding is supposed to be the way you want it and a magical experience, the Wilhite House staff seeks to get as much as they can out of it and really make it their day instead of yours. The staff is not professional in dress or demeanor. The grounds are not taken care of. If you are trying not to spend all the money in the world, DO NOT USE THIS SITE!

Children are made to feel unwelcome. If you have children in your wedding party (e.g. ring bearer, flower girl, junior bridesmaid/groomsman) definitely have your wedding somewhere else. They will be stalked the whole time.

Also, check the caterring clause before booking. The food is not good like the staff promises. After tasting the food, you will want to book somewhere else.

The DJ is very unprofessional and rude. He expects to get paid for doing very little or no work.

Also, if you have already booked with this place do not sign the paper allowing them to post pictures of you on the website--this is not what they want to do at all. They want the pictures to steal your ideas and to steal your security deposit.

ONE STAR WAS GIVEN BECAUSE GIVING NO STARS WAS NOT AN OPTION. This is an awful venue!

Pros: NONE

Cons: Where to begin...

.

If you are not planning on paying a butt load of money do not even think of using this location. Lori the owner will pretend to be nice until you sign the contract. From there she tries her hardest to swindle you out of as much money as possible. She is VERY unprofessional and rude. Her son the "DJ" was very inappropriate and unprofessional as well. Unless you have over $30000 to spend do not waste your time here find another location!

We had a beautiful wedding in every way. The owners of The Wilhite House were very helpful and accomodating...professional in every way. The setting was magical, the food delicious. No detail was overlooked. I wanted my wedding to be romantic and breathtaking and it was everything I ever dreamed of.
I am a very satisified bride and would recommend The Wilhite House to any future bride.

This place is way over priced and over rated! The owners are rude. Would not recommend to anyone for any occasion. If you have small children be sure to find a babysitter before you go because they are not child friendly! Overall had a very bad experience at my neices wedding.Please dont waste your time or money!! I would not advice anyone to use this place. A wedding is supposed to be a magical, beautiful, wonderful day but the staff at the Wilhite house made this day very stressful and uncomfortable!!!!

A wedding is supposed to be a magical, beautiful, wonderful day but the staff at the Wilhite house made this day very stressful and uncomfortable!!!!

Cons: Hated everything about it

.

I was the maid of honor in a wedding at the Wilhite house recently and I had a horrible expierence. The staff was very rude to my sister [the bride], to me , and to all of the guest. They were very friendly and accomidating until they got their money. The price paid and the price originally agreed on were very different. In the middle of the wedding my parents were approached and ask to pay additional gratuity that was told would be included in the money already paid. The management made it clear that children were not welcome and made us feel very out of place and uneasy. The food was not good and there were not enough plates or forks. We paid for 130 guest and only 90 attended so there should have been plenty of plates. Also the food ran out but they made sure their staff had food to eat. Our guest were denied anymore food while thier staff ate the leftovers. I would not advice anyone to use this place.

Had an extremely terrible experience with this establishment! Management was very rude to guests of my wedding. Money and items were stolen from the upstairs and no responsibility was taken on their part even though two members of management admitted to seeing unknown people in and coming from the upstairs area. These same members of management did not say anything to these individuals. After paying much more than the agreed upon amount for the party our security deposit was not refunded due to too many people being in the upstairs area.
