I’m a fun-loving person with over 12 years of experience in the hospitality industry. I've taken my passion to the east coast, west coast and now back to my stomping grounds in the midwest. I love people and their stories, and enjoy creating unique and personalized events.

This venue rocks! They are always super nice, and have great ideas for couples. Very easy to work with from a vendor standpoint. Love them!
I have had several of my clients weddings at this location and they are always a pleasure to work with. Talk about going above and beyond. I am supposed to make their job easy and they make mine easy. I love working with Blaire- she is the best!! Food is incredible along with the staff. Oh and I love the overnight rooms too. Highly recommend!
