  • HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! From our first e-mails to the end of our reception, HHC and their staff were incredible! Cassie and Shelby went above and beyond in every way. I am unorganized and was not looking forward to planning and they made it EXTREMELY EASY (even during the pandemic)! They were always professional, responsive and flexible. Not only did they make planning easy, they made our wedding day run so smoothly. The wedding party and all of our guests were so impressed with the venue and their experience. Cassie and Shelby were made for this career! We are so thankful for both of them. HAVE YOUR WEDDING AT HHC!
