Castle McCulloch was such a beautiful venue, I would absolutely do it all over again! Paulette was great to work with and it was very easy to create what we wanted and work within a payment plan. The manager on site the night of the wedding was very friendly and worked well with the other vendors. The castle is a gorgeous backdrop for photos and an intimate setting for a smaller wedding. HIGHLY recommend!!Sent on 09/24/2019
