I cannot say thank you enough to the wonderful people at Sampson’s Hollow. I knew when Janice (one of the owners) and I first spoke on the phone that we’d made the right venue decision for my daughter Ally’s wedding Not only is the venue first rate in every way, but also the wedding planner Carole White was top notch. I don’t think I (the MOB) could’ve survived the wedding planning process without her. We were doing everything sight unseen, from several states away, but Carole made even that less than ideal situation wonderful. She is amazing at what she does, and the sweetest, funniest person you’ll ever meet. Love her! Sampson’s Hollow was absolutely the perfect spot for the outdoor garden wedding of my daughter’s dreams. And the quaint, lovely barn was so gorgeous for the reception. The staff is so helpful, and they do everything to accommodate you. For example, they provided a golf cart for the wedding photographer so she could take the bride and groom to many locations on the gorgeous grounds for wedding pics. All I can say is…thank you, Janice and Carole, for partnering with me to make my daughter’s dreams come true. Much love! –Michelle

They all went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and having the best day possible  ❤ Lesley and Krista were the kindest and sweetest people who worked hard all day to make sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time. We could not have asked for a more beautiful and stunning day” Tori B

Sampsons Hollow is a magical place to have a wedding! The owner, Janice is highly professional and runs an incredibly efficient business. Sampsons Hollow coordinated a stunning wedding in a wooded glen, with one heck of a party in the barn after!
Lesley was our wedding coordinator, and the day could not have went more seamlessly. She took so much of the stress out of the wedding day for me. Lesley literally had on her running shoes and was all over that venue making sure everything was perfect. –Allison

As mother of the bride, I could not ask for a more friendly and accommodating venue for a wedding. If rain is good luck for the bride and groom then the beautiful, but freezing April snow showers, is a true blessing. Thank you for all of you there at Sampson’s Hollow for all the work you did to keep everyone comfortable. Beautiful wedding! –Beth M.

There are truly no words to describe how amazing our wedding was at Sampsons Hollow in October. I know I am a little late with the review, but as most of you know, life happens. My husband and I were married at Sampsons Hollow on October the 9th, and to say that the ceremony was breathtaking is an understatement. The reason we chose to have our wedding and reception at Sampsons Hollow was not only because it is what most would consider a one stop shop, but because the Sampsons Hollow staff care about the customers they serve. My husband and I were truly blessed to have such and awesome wedding planner ,Ida Mae. I promise, all I had to do was pull up my Pinterest board , and she made everything come to life. I did not have a worry in the world on my wedding day thanks to this sweet soul. Not only is Sampsons Hollow a beautiful venue, but they also have a lot to offer. They are more than willing to work with you and they are also very accommodating. My husband and I chose to have Sampsons Hollow cater our wedding and the food was to die for. I contemplated whether or not to have my own caterers, but honestly I am so glad I didn’t, because the food couldn’t have been better. Our wedding was perfect and it ran so so smoothly thanks to the amazing staff. I also really enjoyed the fact that since the wedding venue is on a farm, the Sampons Hollow staff will pick your guests up from the parking lot and take them to the ceremony location. They also provide cold bottled water. With that being said, there are many locations for the actual ceremony itself, and there are also a few back up locations in case of rain. My wedding day was everything I could have invisioned and then some. I wish that I could share my wedding photos with you all so that you could see how beautiful and perfect my wedding turned out. I know that my day couldn’t have been as perfect as it was withought the help of the wonderful staff and family of Sampsons Hollow. I would highly recommend this venue!!! –Megan

I would recommend this place to anyone.. it was absolutely beautiful and everything was taken care of and I am so pleased with everything…. y’all did an AMAZING job……Thank You Thank You Thank You! – Kathy W

I chose Sampson’s Hollow because of the beautiful location and the at-home feeling you get while on the property. I’m so glad I had my wedding here! The staff was so helpful and we collaborated to put together a beautiful wedding in just over 2 months. They are prepared to help several different aspects of wedding planning such as catering, the cake, and some decor. (My food and cake were ah-mazing!) The package I chose even provided a coordinator and all of this at a very reasonable price. Definitely recommend.
P.S- It rained on my wedding day, which no one wants BUT this venue has the most beautiful ‘Plan B’ option for rainy weddings and it turned out to be even better than I could have imagined. If you want an outdoor ceremony but are hesitant because of the possibility of bad weather this is a great option. –Lindsay

Our wedding at Sampson’s Hollow in May was absolutely gorgeous. The venue itself was breathtaking and there were so many great spots for us to get amazing pictures! We only had about 50 guests, but Janice helped us create a wedding package that was perfect for us and included almost everything we needed for our wedding. The reception food and wedding cake included in our package was so delicious, and the decorations we’re spot on. Our package also included an amazing wedding coordinator. You don’t know how valuable a wedding coordinator is until you start planning for a wedding, and our wedding coordinator, Lesley, was incredible! She met with us multiple times before the wedding to go over every detail, and I honestly could not have done any of the wedding planning without Lesley! She definitely went way above and beyond to make our day unforgettable! I just cannot say enough good things about Lesley and Janice at Sampson’s Hollow! I highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a beautiful rustic/country wedding with amazing staff who care about your special day! –Kristen
