  • I do not think I could recommend this venue enough! It is a STUNNING location and Michelle is amazing! She is so accommodating to your specific needs. She and her team did such an amazing job setting things up that day. I got so many raving reviews about the location and venue from my guests, as well. There are many options within the venue to have your reception (inside, outside, or both). It was truly perfect!
