My husband and I lived in Vegas and were planning our Gilbert wedding with this venue, not an easy taste but this venue and their staff made it incredibly easy! I saw the venue once before our rehearsal and the staff working there was amazing and so helpful!! It’s a cozy and homey venue, my husband and I, and our guests, loved that there were so many areas to hang out in the backyard, if you didn’t love to be on the dance floor! I cannot thank the staff enough for being so attentive, I showed up on my wedding day very sick, but the show needed to go on! I was not on my A game, but the staff for sure was! They made the day so easy for my husband and I! Such a cute and accommodating venue!Sent on 10/14/2019
