55 Guest fall wedding

This venue took care of almost everything for me. I was able to plan my wedding while l lived in FL, and my (now) husband lived in CA. We’re both active duty military. This venue took care of everything. Only thing we had to work out was the wedding cake because we wanted to use a family friend. We got married during a tropical storm (brides worst nightmare) and this venue handled it well. We were still able to get married out on the patio by the fireplace and it was perfect! Linda let us get as creative as we wanted with the decorations (without causing damage) and having a circular ceremony. I think she had as much fun as we were having being creative in this venue. All of the staff was phenomenal, helpful, energetic, kind, sweet and genuine. I cannot say enough positive things about the group that took care of us. Check out their Facebook page for our fall wedding (November 11 2022).
