    Excellent customer service

    My fiance and I were looking at this as out venue for our wedding. The customer service and responsiveness to our questions was quick and friendly. This venue would have been a great choice if my fiance and I hadn't chosen to go with a destination wedding instead!

    Wonderful Experience!

    From the moment we toured CBF, we knew this was the spot where we wanted to get married. It is an incredibly beautiful location and there is a lot of flexibility in how you can set things up. We got married on one of the hottest days of the year and were able to be flexible even on the day of in terms of where we set up cocktail hour and the ceremony. When choosing CBF, it’s important to keep in mind that it is not a traditional wedding venue and much of the organizational elements will be left up to you. The staff are really helpful and friendly, but ultimately you are renting the space, not a “venue.” This all worked out well for us, but just something to keep in mind! Our guests loved the location and we would definitely choose CBF again!
