  • We are very glad we chose Hockessin Memorial Hall for our reception venue. Sarah was phenomenal, and catered to our every need. Our theme was a little less traditional (based on a board game), and we had some quirky requests-- such as rolling dice to announce tables for dinner. Sarah worked hard to ensure that we were able to incorporate all of our ideas and that the evening ran smoothly. She was very responsive and helped our event go off without a hitch. They also have several packages to choose from and you can really design your event to fit your price and needs. It was a plus that the inside of the venue is already so nice that you do not have to do a lot of decorations to make it feel classy. We would definitely recommend Hockessin-- great value and great service!
