My wedding was amazing! Erin was awesome to work with. Unfortunately the day of my wedding was the hottest day of the year, however she was super flexible with moving everything inside and making sure everyone stayed cool. She was great at helping me with my nerves and helping move everything along throughout the ceremony and reception. She helped me pick my other vendors as well. I'd definitely recommend!Sent on 08/11/2019

We were looking for an easy but beautiful venue. We didnt want to stress out making a million tiny decisions. Erin and her staff did great at taking hearing what was important to us, and then taking care of all the rest. Would definitely reccommend to anyone!Sent on 08/12/2019

Beautiful venue! Helpful people!
When we walked in to Compass Point we immediately knew it was the place! It is so beautiful and unique. Erin helped us with everything including the food, flowers, rehearsal, decorations, and so much more. There was a 50% chance of rain on our day and she offered to put up tents in the yard if necessary. We also had the option of doing the ceremony inside. (But the weather ended up being perfect!) She has a back up plan for everything! Our guests were so impressed with the venue and how smoothly everything went. We couldn't have asked for a better day! Thank you Compass Point!Sent on 04/09/2019
