An Absolute Dream Venue

This venue is an absolute dream. It was the second venue we saw and immediately fell in love. We couldn't have asked for a better spot to host our wedding.

We had a Sunday fall wedding and myself and the bridal party stayed at the venue all day getting ready. The bridal attendants were phenomenal, tending to our every need. Brook was my day of attendant and was absolutely amazing, she was able to anticipate my every need, was always checking in on me to make sure I was okay and wasn't overwhelmed. I felt so safe and at ease with her. Plus, she is a RIOT. We were cracking jokes all day and she even through on a wig and fake mustache during our ceremony (which made for an epic photo opp).

Krista the event manager is such a sweetheart. She was so easy to talk to and plan with and was a gem the day of, making sure everything was running smoothly. The day would have not been possible without her. She also came up to me throughout the night with photo opp ideas that I would have never thought of, and made sure my husband and I were taken care of.

All in all, I could rave about this venue and the staff forever. We definitely made the right choice booking here and highly recommend to everyone. The views are phenomenal, the building is gorgeous and the staff is 10/10.

Beautiful wedding day

I had the privilege of attending my daughter's wedding at this beautiful venue, yesterday. Everything was fantastic. The professionalism of the entire staff was evident from the beginning of the day and continued throughout the entire wedding. The food seemed to be never ending and was delicious. The backdrop with the lake made for a beautiful wedding. I would like to thank everyone at the venue for making it such a memorable occasion.
