    Best place ever

    Honestly an amazing event.
    Casey the coordinator was awesome and helped and explained everything! Any mishaps she fixed and was perfect!
    John the DJ and officiant was spot on! My officiant dropped out less than a week before the wedding and he jumped in and handled everything so smoothly!! The music was awesome and everyone had so much fun!
    He improvised so well during my family/daughter dance when my drunk grandpa cut in randomly and no one knew it wasn’t supposed to happen!

    Highly recommend
    I’m still getting texts from everyone who attended saying it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and that they had the time of their life!


    Food was amazing btw!! Everyone was so happy and it was so nice to see
