Great experience

Willing to work with clients, understanding to a point, as a COVID bride I can say these circumstances can bring out the worst in people. But not here.

It was so wonderful having a venue manager like Kaitlin who allowed as many tours as we needed or wanted for out of town family and other vendors such as caterers, DJ, and decorators. The price was great for all the space available. Only downfall, is that we needed to rent all chairs and cocktail tables.
