    Am Kolel was the perfect venue for our wedding. Andres was amazing to work with and really put in the extra effort to make the place look perfect. Our wedding party spent the weekend and it was so much fun to be on site. It was very reasonable and I hope more couples will consider it. It is so beautiful and has so many wonderful places for everything from pictures to ceremony and could fit a big tent. It was amazing and we are so grateful for them for making our wedding picture perfect.

    They were wonderful to work with and really set up the site for us on our wedding day. It was great to be able to have our closest friends and family stay with us for the whole weekend, and the spot for our ceremony was just lovely. They also have both indoor and outdoor options which made us very comfortable about the possibility of rain.
