Perfect Venue! (even during COVID :))
I do not think I could recommend this venue enough! It is a STUNNING location and Michelle is amazing! She is so accommodating to your specific needs. She and her team did such an amazing job setting things up that day. I got so many raving reviews about the location and venue from my guests, as well. There are many options within the venue to have your reception (inside, outside, or both). It was truly perfect!Sent on 10/01/2020

Beautiful venue and wonderful staff!
This is the most beautiful venue! There are so many options for pictures and the house for bride/bridesmaids to get ready is lovely!
Lisa, the coordinator, is so helpful and responsive. They were extremely flexible with me and my crazy requests! Food was delicious and drinks were plentiful.
I truly believe Lisa did everything she could to decrease my stress level on our wedding day- she took care of everything and I didn’t even hear a word.
Most of my guests says “best wedding ever!”Sent on 06/06/2019
