    Amazing Experience

    Married on November 7, 2020. I was a Covid bride over-stressing about every little detail. Angelique kept me updated about every change due to Covid from the Porter County Health Dept. Thankfully we had GORGEOUS 70+ degree weather in November and moved out ceremony outside last minute. Angelique was fully on board with that decision, even tho the ceremony space was already set up inside and we had to completely change the room layout again. Overall experience, I would highly recommend this venue! Stress-free, lots of in house decor, food, linen options. One stop shop!

    Duneland Falls Banquet Center's reply:

    Wow Ashley, what a beautiful thing to wake up and read this morning! Thank you so much. I'm sure that you know how much we appreciate this!

    Stay blessed Ashley and I hope to see you soon.
