Gatherings of Dorchester.....ever heard of it?

Recently stumbled across the gatherings of dorchester as a possible ceremony & reception site www.gatheringsofdorchester.com  I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about it or attended a wedding there?

Thanks

    I have heard nice things. I see you are in New York, will your guests be traveling? My only concern is that Dorchester is kind of in the middle of nowhere...I grew up in the area. And I love the area but I would be concerned about where guests will stay since there aren't any hotels nearby and transportation if they are flying. If that's a non issue it might be a good place for you!

    yes, my fiance & I live in NY but I'm from Charleston & he went to high school there & all of my family and his friends are there and his other family members are spread around in other states but only a few out of SC guests will be there and they will be together & traveling w/his mother (who lived in SC for yrs) so I think it could work since the majority of our guests will be local. I did map quest it & it seems kinda out there! I've never heard of it so I had to try & get some opinions.

    I liked the venue and the only draw back as noted is the distance.  It was perfect for what she was looking for and really didn't have anything negative to say about it.  Price was the biggest reason she chose the location.  I've been to other weddings in the are at Boone Hall and Magnolia and I personally like this location better.  Hope this helps and good luck!!!

    I've been to a wedding there. It's a nice and is really inexpensive. The only thing like PP mentioned is that it is out in the middle of nowhere.

    It is a beautiful place. It is sad to hear it is unavailable. i am having my wedding there in September! Although it is in the middle of "no where" it is very quite and peaceful. There are really accomidating as well. The two ladies there love what they do and really want to help any way possiable.
