    We had our wedding here over Labor Day weekend and it was a perfect, magical event. From the beginning of our planning process, the staff was extremely responsive and helpful. Even though Kymberle came on-staff a couple months before the wedding, she seamlessly picked up where the previous events manager left off and responded to all of our emails immediately. Picnic House staff were amazingly helpful on the day of and kept our wedding running smoothly. The space was beautiful and it looked amazing with just flowers on the tables, no extra lights, and comfortable AC. The ceiling is higher than it looks in pictures and overall, the space is very elegant with minimal decoration. We had the ceremony and reception inside because park rules say no amplified sound and you have to rent separate chairs for outside use. During the cocktail hour, post-ceremony, the Picnic House staff and Catering staff made a quick transition with chairs and tables from ceremony to dinner and dancing. We live down the street from the venue and visit the park almost every day so it felt almost like we were getting married in our backyard. Initially, having a set list of caterers felt frustrating but we actually ended up appreciating it because it seemed like all those included in the list have tons of experience working specifically with the Picnic House space and staff. The day was everything we could have hoped for and more.

    The Picnic House is a beautiful venue. Christina, the director of rentals, promptly responded to every email we sent and was extremely helpful leading up to the wedding. William, the house manager, was warm, helpful, and went out of his way to be so kind to everyone. Every single person who worked for the park made us feel happy and comfortable. I cannot sing the praises of this place enough.

    A side note about decorating, we used the Picnic House's chairs and tables. We rented linens and brought in candles and picture frames for the mantel and cake stands of cookies for the centerpieces. William lit a fire in the fireplace as it was a ridiculously cold night (though with all the dancing many guests still stepped out for a minute here or there to cool down). We were a little worried as the wedding approached that we didn't spring for special lighting, flowers, or ceiling decorations (the Picnic House has very high ceilings), but the place didn't need anything extra. It was really, really beautiful on its own. In fact, many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was.

    Also, Bon Soir is to thank for really making the place lovely. Besides having the best food (seriously, so good and they sent us home with the leftovers), Jeff's staff plated the cake stands with hundreds of cookies and lit all the candles and just generally were magical.
