    Great Overland Station was the only place we considered when deciding where to book our reception. The venue is so beautiful to begin with, you need little more than tablecloths and centerpieces. The flexibility of being able to choose our caterer and bring in our own alcohol meant a lot to us. Our only small issue was that the sound reverberates so some of the wedding speeches were hard to understand if you weren't close to the speaker.

    I have not yet had the wedding but so far I have had no issues getting the venue reserved. The person of contact for the venue, Sarah House, has been extremely helpful and quick to respond. The nice part about the venue is its open to the public during the week and Saturdays so you can go look at it anytime without having to make an appointment.
