    A Day to Remember!

    It is better late than never, but my husband and I got married here last June. The venue is gorgeous and I was sold when taking our tour. There were no worries or stress working with Becky and her staff. They made the day seamless and one we will never forget!

    Dream Venue

    We had our October wedding here, and it was like a fairy tale. It's so naturally beautiful there, and there's so many stunningly gorgeous ceremony locations to choose from. We got married in the chapel and had our reception in the tent. I'm so excited to see all the photographs that we took roaming the grounds. This place is seriously straight out of a story book. Becky was super easy to work with, and I felt confident knowing we had an open line of communication in case I had any questions or concerns. She has tons of experience, and made sure our vision for our wedding day became true. Oh! And the donkeys rule! Highly, highly recommend!
