    Best venue ever

    Wow! It’s hard for me to find the words to describe how amazing this venue is. First off it is beautiful!!! The space is huge and it is soooo unique! The outside ceremony space is so cute and the inside speaks for itself. Working with Mary Beth was a dream! She was so responsive and I know she really cared about making my day special. I was previously booked with another venue but due to covid we had to find another venue about a month before. I wish I found Rafter’s first!!! Mary Beth and her team did everything in their power to make my day special and we received soooo many compliments about the venue after our wedding! I would recommend Rafter’s to anyone!

    Best VENUE ever!

    I cannot say enough good things about Mary Beth and team! The moment we stepped into Rafters Venue; we knew it was the venue for us! We are so thankful to have had Mary Beth’s help during our entire wedding planning process. Mary Beth was the blessing we did not know we needed. She answered every question we had as well as question we didn’t know we had! She was always 2 steps ahead of us, anticipating our ever need. The venue is BEAUTIFUL from the inside to the outside. It’s open, clean, bright, and customizable. The second you walk into the venue; you can feel the love and care the owners put into it. The customer service we received during the almost 2 years it took us to plan our wedding was impeccable! Mary Beth (and team) was there to guide us every step of the way! I would 1 million % recommend this venue to any/everyone. Again, thank you Mary Beth and team, our wedding would not have been the success and beauty it was without you all!
