    This was the perfect site for our wedding. Every staff member I encountered was professional and more than helpful. The setting was gorgeous. I recommend the lobby as a site for photographs. The food was excellent with a variety of choices. The bridal suite was very nice. Overall it was an amazing event that ran smoother than I ever could have imagined due to the timing and knowledge of the wedding planning staff.
