  • Loved getting married here. Only downfall was the planning process- have a lot of changeover so meetings don’t mean very much until the end. We only had a minimum of 75, which worked beautifully for the space. I can’t see fitting more than 100 people in that room comfortably. Kim was amazing with our decor, and trust me I brought LOADS of stuff. Only negative we had was that Kim went and got the contract from the sales office when my husband (totally sober) forgot is was only a 4 hour open bar. Little awkward.
