    Besides the venue being absolutely AMAZING ... DREW WESTVEER was equally so! We had our daughter's wedding ceremony only at the Chateau for 200 guests! Plenty of space, EVERY detail was PERFECT! We used the bridal suite for the ladies and the library for the gentleman ... both were FANTASTIC! The grounds are an INCREDIBLE backdrop for pictures and there is plenty of parking. Could not have asked for a more BEAUTIFUL venue or a more FABULOUS person to work with!!
