    Shirley Acres is a breath taking property. From the drive up to the actual tour, my fiance and I absolutely loved everything they had to offer. Bob was very nice and was excellent in answering every question I had. The staff was very attentive and the open house was to die for! Anyone would be lucky to have their wedding in such a beautiful place!

    Amazing venue and staff!

    I would definitely recommend the venue and their wonderful staff! Bob and the staff here are always smiling when you see them and friendly on the phone. They have answered all of questions and pretty much done whatever they can to ease the stress of wedding planning. My fiance and I are still in awe every time we walk into the pavillion.

    Thank you so much, Katherine! You are so kind, we are so happy to help with anything that we can!
