We got ready here and had our wedding ceremony here, and let me tell you- they know what they are doing.
We had our service during public hours-but we never would have known anyone else was on the property but us. They did a wonderful job blocking off areas we were using, and making sure we were top priority that day.
They also made sure any guests we had that had trouble walking, were properly escorted to our ceremony site.
The actual site is GORGEOUS. We spent over an hour taking photos after our ceremony. This is the perfect location if you want a bunch of wedding pictures.
Keep in mind you HAVE to buy a season pass if you are going to have your wedding here. It's really not expensive, and trust me you will want it. We visited many times before our wedding to see where we wanted our photos taken, Also, you can walk your dog on the property which is lovely.
But overall-beautiful. Everyone is kind and helpful and knows what they are doing. They made our day absolutely perfect!
