    Best venue we could've hoped for.

    Tom and Joanne were highly attentive and the ultimate professionals. They were wonderfully response during the entire course of planning and on the day of the event itself. They made us comfortable in that we knew there would be no glitches and had there been I suspect they had a plan "B" for almost any situation - they really know what they're doing.
