    The 228 was Amazing!!!

    My husband and I got married at The 228 at the beginning of August, 2021. When we envisioned our wedding, we wanted something laid-back, but beautiful and The 228 delivered. From the beginning, it was an easy process. Sharon and Maria asked about things that we hadn't even thought of. They decorated exactly as we wanted and the space was magical, from the outdoor ceremony space that we chose, to the patio surrounded by twinkle lights, to the quaint barn...it was all beautiful. The venue is affordable and completely customizable to any couple's vision. They also have amazing preferred vendors. I would highly recommend The 228 for any wedding or function!!
