Beautiful Venue, kind and attentive staff
This venue is an absolute gem! I cannot say enough about how positive our experience was in getting married at the Midway Village Museum this past July. In addition to getting married at the Midway, we took our engagement pictures there as well. They have multiple ceremony sites but we got married at the gazebo site. The garden near the gazebo was in bloom and stunning the day of our wedding. The historical buildings are simply charming and whimsical, it tied in perfectly with the look and vibe we were going for. The staff at the Midway were so accommodating and laid back. They were quick to respond, easy to talk to and patient with questions we had about the ceremony space, timing and on and on. We were able to easily set up times to view and tour the venue. All of this went a long way to put me at ease. They made our day easier, not more difficult, and that to me was priceless. Lisa is a breeze to work with. We had no issues whatsoever. They had the site set up as needed for our rehearsal and wedding day. Our wedding coordinator also had a positive experience working with Lisa. They have a gorgeous bridal suite to use for pictures and getting ready on site and were accommodating with special requests. This venue should be on your short list! Working with people that care about making it a good experience for you, makes all the difference in the world.Sent on 08/04/2019
