I love this venue

Megan and Jen made my special day so beautiful and easy. I contacted them and always had questions and they were more than happy to answer and provide all the answers for me. The Fredenrich Conference Room was gorgeous and the views were gorgeous and I cannot stop gushing about how wonderful the staff were at Oshman Family JCC
