    I was one of those brides when it came to last minute changes and swaps. Ken Knell at the Union was so great to work with--he made everything I wanted happen. The staff the night of were amazing. They made us a to go box of food, carried everything out to the cars, and took care of us like were family. I'd highly suggest a trip to the Union if you're looking for a great venue for your wedding.
