The Weir-Jordan House (c. 1846) has a rich history in the city of Greensboro. This antebellum home is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of only ten surviving structures built before 1880 in Greensboro. The original owner, Dr. David Weir, was President of the Edgeworth Female Academy (now Greensboro College) and founded the first insurance company in the city of Greensboro. In 1890 the house was sold to John F. Jordan, a businessman in tobacco who served as a Guilford County sheriff, a Greensboro commissioner, and Chamber of Commerce director. The house was purchased by the Greensboro Woman’s Club in 1921 with the purpose of using the home as a clubhouse. More recently, the GWC saw an opportunity to serve the community by making the house available to the public for various functions. In 2008, the Weir-Jordan House became the home of Savory St. Catering. Please visit Savory St. at the Weir-Jordan House today. With our casual elegance and Southern sense of style, we will provide an experience to be remembered by you & your guests.

We decided that we wanted our wedding to be fun, participatory, and oriented around Greensboro. With that in mind, we planned to attend a Thirsty Thursday baseball game, gave our rehearsal dinner at Natty Greene's, and our reception at the Weir-Jordan House. The Weir-Jordan House is an antebellum home, making it not only an historic part of Greensboro but also walkable from the downtown area. The venue boasts a large, main dining room and a sizeable front lawn for games, outdoor seating, or dancing. For dinner we opted to seat half of our 135 guests inside and half outside, and it worked wonderfully. The outdoor tent, dance floor, and extra table and chair rentals were handled by the folks at Weir-Jordan (through Partymakers) and included in the final bill, so we didn't have to worry about another vendor or contract. Furthermore, the thoughtful staff organized flower centerpieces at a reasonable price and helped arrange our personal table markers. Guests loved the historic and convenient location and, beyond that, the space rental fee was nominal in comparison to other downtown venues. The Weir-Jordan House is exclusively catered by an in-house service, Savory Street, headed by Stacy Street. Our experience with Stacy only deserves rave reviews. She had an extensive option of menus to choose from and was able to cater to our dietary needs; we specifically had to avoid peanuts and bell peppers, but she also offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Beyond having several options to choose from, the food she made was amazing! Instead of ordering a wedding cake through a bakery, we opted to have Stacy's team make a variety of desserts including a cutting cake for us, which people loved. Drinks were easy as we got to bring in our own choice of alcoholic beverages, while Stacy provided professional bartenders to serve. This saved us a lot of money in comparison to caterers that charge high corkage fees and also allowed us to serve our own favorites; some other venues only offer specific brands of beer, wine and booze. The thing we appreciated most about our experience with Stacy was not just how well informed and knowledgable about weddings she was, but how willing she was to meet with us and work through the details of our special night! Without any reservation, we would recommend Stacy and The Weir-Jordan House to anyone getting married in Greensboro!
