No stress wedding!
First of all. The day of my wedding, absolutely no stress, everything was absolutely PERFECT. It definitely couldn't have been done without the owners Jane and Bernie, and the wedding planner (who comes with the venue fee) Sarah! They were there through every step, and were extremely accommodating! They made the day of my wedding perfect. I let Sarah and Jane have some creative freedoms when it came to my decorations and they absolutely blew my mind and went above and beyond what I expected. They allowed us to make several changes and Sarah kept up with me throughout each part of the process with great recommendations! Definitely a wonderful venue! Again, the perfect day with absolutely no stress. It could not have been done without them!Sent on 10/21/2019

I cannot recommend this venue more. Not only were the owners and the coordinator great, but the site is beautiful! The ease of having the ceremony at the same site as the reception was great and the different options were customizable to make the wedding uniquely yours. I also loved the riverfront site for the ceremony. It was stunning! Also, the venue takes care of all of the rentals (tent, tables, chairs, etc.), which is very helpful.Sent on 07/01/2015

The Proctor family was absolutely amazing! They were quick to respond to any questions or needs of ours. It was such a laid back atmosphere and Sarah made me feel very comfortable through the entire planning process. The site was absolutely beautiful and the day couldn't have gone any smoother!Sent on 07/08/2015
