WOW! everything and I mean everything about our wedding was perfection. The venue itself, the perfectly groomed grounds, the food at Jamie Hollander, Leslie & Rachael, I could go on forever. Everyone raved about the food and how beautiful the venue was. We got lucky with beautiful weather and I could not be happier with Pearl Buck Estate and Jamie Hollander Catering. Well worth every penny.
The Pearl S. Buck Estate was the perfect venue for our October wedding. The grounds are stunning and are an ideal location for photos. They have seasonal flowers and plants all over the patio and throughout the grounds. From the cocktail hour setup on the patio to the beautifully lit reception tent, everything was top notch. If you are looking for a rustic feel that is high class, this is the place.

We wanted something different- something organic and outdoors- without a stuffy barn feeling and definitely not a banquet hall. Pearl S. Buck's Estate delivered in all aspects.
It was the venue that we visited once and just knew it was our venue. We absolutely loved everything about PSB, from the beautiful gardens on the property to the friendly staff who goes above and beyond during the wedding planning process and the day of.
This venue has IT ALL. It is stunning. It is historical. It has a fantastic caterer. And the tent is magical! I never wanted to have my reception in a tent. Then I walked into this tent and thought, this is not a tent at all! The ceremony space is just gorgeous and there is nothing better then being able to get tours of the house during the cocktail hour. The staff were professional and so helpful. Our day went off without a hitch and many of our guests have told us it was the "best wedding we have ever been to!" One of the best things about this venue is that you can truly make it your own. I cannot say enough great things.
