    Phenomenal experience!!

    From the moment we went to visit Moonstone
    Manor, we knew instantly that this was where
    we wanted to get married. It is absolutely
    magical!! Gina, Mary and their staff could not
    have been any more accommodating!! All of our
    quests were literally "over the moon' at how
    beautiful and nice everything was. We had
    constant compliments the entire day! Gina and
    Mary were incredible throughout our entire
    planning process! They were quick to answer
    questions, welcomed visits, and offered lots of
    sound advice on many occasions!! We can not
    say enough wonderful things about them and
    their staff! Needless to say, we were thrilled with
    our entire experience!

    Beautiful & Delicious

    Gina is amazing. Her food is even more amazing. We were lucky enough to have Food for Thought cater at Gina's venue Moonstone Manor and it was just perfect! She was open to working with us on making tweaks and mix and matching all sorts of different foods and drinks. They also boxed up all the leftovers for us to take home and everything was just as delicious the second (and third) time! Highly recommend!!
