    Located in Milaca, conveniently right off 169. They had great prices and packages. We paid about 4000$ for venue, food n alcohol for all night! We loved our venue from amazing food to great communication. Beef was basically falling apart that you didn't even need a knife and chicken was melting in your mouth. It was also always easy to reach them with any questions, and I know it is not always possible but it was convenient that we could go in and decorate on Friday (save me so much stress!). Not to mention that from the very beginning we knew exactly what our total will be for the night and there was never any hidden fees. We will highly recommend your venue to any of our family and friends and we are so very thankful for our great experience!

    Bryony and her team made our daughter's wedding run look and run beautifully!!! She is marvelous to work with! At our first meeting/consultation she was able to tell us our options and give us prices and dates! She delivered delicious meals, smooth service and and beautiful event center that both met and exceeded our hopes! Bryony did an excellent job at hosting and serving our event at a cost effective price. We are so blessed and grateful!
