    In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike

    I had to contact them 2 weeks after Ike because my first wedding was 6 weeks after Ike (2008). I hadn't mailed the invitations, and we didn't know if it was still standing. I didn't know if my contact was okay or if her family and staff were okay. But she was amazing. She asked if we still wanted to get married there even though the building was perfect. I said of course. I had picked it because it was gorgeous, fit my needs, and I wanted to give my money to an historical society. All the rest of their properties sustained damage, so they really needed my business. She told me to come see it to be sure, and she was right, the building was perfect. It is an historical building because it survived the 1900 storm, and they raised it after that.
    Tips: The kitchen is small, so make sure your caterer knows what's up. The beautiful windows cast weird shadows, so make sure your photographer is familiar with it in advance. The tape on the floor stays on the floor. No balloons, no rice, no sand, no flames (historical building!). Be sure you reserve the park from the city so you have the parking lot to yourself and no loud music outside and the outside areas clear for photos. Generally they will want to put the DJ on the stage, not the ceremony because it is too easy for people to fall off of it. Also, if you have a summer wedding, don't put the cake in one of the bay windows on the sunny side! It will start to get warm and the frosting will start to melt and slide. Just set a table against the inner railings or along the side where it won't get direct sunlight. Chair and table rental was very inexpensive. Rules were reasonable and laid out clearly in advance before booking. 100% recommend to people all the time.

    Loved having our reception here in July. Lauraleigh was very responsive and helpful. We ended up stringing up a few lights and bringing in our own chairs, but the venue is so beautiful on its own you really don't need to do much to decorate. I was worried about the heat in July but the AC held up! Highly recommend.
