The perfect backdrop to our perfect day
Great Marsh is an absolutely gorgeous property! The staff was incredibly responsive and helpful from the time we inquired through the end of our big day. We loved everything about our venue; getting ready spaces, ceremony area, reception hall and the countless spots to take photos!Sent on 10/24/2019

The true fairy tale wedding venue
When you visit this place it is magical. Jessica is so straight forward and professional. She made sure to go over every detail with us and made it so easy to make a decision. I love that there was no pressure but she still sold me on this venue because of the perks and beauty this place has. The tour Jessica gave was like a fairy tail. I believe she will make sure that all the staff and assistants hired will compliment the venue.Sent on 12/11/2018

Mother of the Bride
Great Marsh is unique and beautiful. 4 months later, our guests are stills talking about its magic. One of the wonderful things is that out guests moved to three different places within the same location for three important moments throughout the wedding: ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We even got to spend the night and have a delicious gourmet style breakfast the next morning! It was a dream!Sent on 03/10/2020
