Beautiful, large venue. You have plenty of space social distance tables during a Covid-19 wedding and you have an upstairs that you can reserve for people who don’t want to be around crowds. Staff was very nice and accommodating. You have to purchase alcohol through the Cadre, which was the largest expense we had overall. However, we chose an upper-end open bar package. There are other lower-cost options. This was not a secret or a surprise to us - we knew exactly what we signed up for lol. It just is a lot more than what you might pay a venue to bring your own alcohol. We loved the venue so much that we were willing to take on the extra expense. (I’m just trying to think of potentially helpful information. This was not a negative thing.)Sent on 11/04/2020
