  • The day was meant to be magical and wonderful and all the things dreams are made of, and IT WAS!! The professionalism and "can do" attitude of the McDowall Acres staff was top notch. They were extremely supportive and said on more than on occasion when we were trying to make decisions about the decor, "let's do our best to create the bride's vision", and they set out to do just that. They were hard working, and were problem solvers! When the caterer forgot to send serving spoons with the buffet meal, Elizabeth disappeared for a few minutes and then voila! magically appeared with a half dozen serving spoons. There were several little bumps in the road that were barely noticeable because of their good help. Even down to not having enough greenery to add the the backs of the chairs - Lucy hopped on the golf cart and went foraging around the farm and brought back the perfect greenery solution. You just can't go wrong when you have a team like that making your special day happen!
