Amazing venue!

This was the perfect venue for our intimate wedding ceremony. I was recommended this venue by a friend and am so glad she did. If you are having a smaller ceremony (ours was around 30) this is the perfect lowkey spot. Our ceremony was at 5pm and the park had these beautiful string lights around the trees turned on and it ended up being one of my favorite details from the day!

Marriage proposal

I decided to book this venue for my proposal to my girl friend. The service was excellent! They were responsive and catered to all my needs to make the event come together, they even helped decorate! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to have an event but also a surreal experience.
