We booked this venue over a year and a half before our wedding. We chose opening day of the festival. We paid for all the tickets for our friends and family, and I loved that I just gave them a list and there were no issues. We got married in King’s Arbor and I was concerned that the day was really hot. The team had water right at the end of the aisle for the guests to drink and there was more water in Bad Manor, where we had our reception. The team setting up dinner in Bad Manor was great. They were concerned that we hadn’t eaten and even boxed up some food for us to take with us. It was such a great experience.Sent on 09/12/2018

We are not even from the country but Allison was able to get us all booked and ready over the phone.Sent on 11/13/2017
Also helpful with information about how to get the licence and such.
We just had to show up and she guided us all to the venue. (Be sure to give plenty of time for travel and parking though!!!)
Compared to any other kind of wedding, and considering the great venue, the cost was incredibly cheap.
(We did not hold the reception there, that is where costs go up sharply)
The intern Abby was also exceptionally nice. She was very happy to help with taking some photos. The park should hire her and offer photography as a service
It was also fun around the park after the ceremony. In every possible way it was better than an expensive, 'normal' wedding
