  • This was the first venue we saw, and though we toured others, we loved this one. It is absolutely beautiful, and includes so many great places for photos. The in-house catering is good, and the staff were very professional. We hit some snags due to to covid and overall circumstances outside everyone's control, but they worked with us as best they could to help with our changing plans. Even the week before, when weather dictated we had to re-plan pretty much the entire format of the event, they were super helpful in recommending how to shift things and still have the event we wanted.
