    Everyone I came in contact with was very helpful. Evan was great at answering questions. We rented the church only for an April wedding. There was a mixup with our officiant during rehearsal and the staff member provided an alternate rehearsal time to help us. She went above and beyond. The pictures were fantastic and the prices were very reasonable.
