Kara will absolutely make your day perfect! She will usually respond within minutes and all the changes they have made this past year were great for what we needed. Our guests still rave about how cute the barn was and how it felt so homey! Kara makes great suggestions and I used pretty much all of them. We love her and the venue! Thanks Kara!
