Such a beautiful place with a great team, consider your wedding in this scenic location and you won't be disappointed.
We've been to a few events that we have both worked as a photographer and attended as a vendor and guest. They do a great job! It's a great venue with beautiful views of the harbor. They have great indoor and outdoor spaces and there are so many pretty views for photos. The food is really great too. We highly recommend them for your wedding or event!
