  • This venue is definitely an hidden gem! When we seen this venue we knew right away we had to book with Allison. The gorgeous wood inside the venue was an added bonus. It’s so beautiful! We wanted something rustic, simple but also elegant. Our wedding guest raved about how beautiful this venue was. It’s amazing how many complements we received that night about the venue. I can’t brag enough about how amazing it was to work with Allison. I was a COVID-19 bride who had to push back our date and l was so worried about everything. Allison talked me out of a few Panic attacks. Allison is very kind, friendly and easy to work with. She definitely was a blessing during this whole process. We can not forget about the friendly ladies at the front desk. We could not imagine having our wedding any where else. My husband and l would recommend this venue to anyone.
