    Beautiful Venue

    We toured the facility on a Sunday afternoon. The venue was absolutely gorgeous! The tour was not rushed, she spent time with us, answered our questions. If they had of had our date open we would have chosen this venue.

    A hidden gem

    Running Mare was the most perfect venue for our day. The water on the property is what drew us here specifically, but the pavilion for the reception was beautiful and had enough space for our wedding. Robin and Austin were beyond helpful. They were really open to our ideas, they were around to help with set up. They really cared about making our day run smoothly. They really took care of us and our evenr the whole time we had the venue booked for. We couldn't have asked for a better experience than at Running Mare.
