The BEST venue
We cannot stop talking about our wedding here. Everything was incredible. The venue is absolutely beautiful. We loved everything about it. Angie made it even better. She is absolutely amazing and truly cares about your event. She never hesitated answering my million questions. She truly let us make our event exactly the way we wanted it. We rented out the rooms for the night before and night of, and cannot even describe how absolutely beautiful those rooms are! Everything was amazing there and we were so in love with our wedding and that beautiful venue.Sent on 04/25/2021

Blissful and perfect
We were married on 10/31/2020. Angie was amazing at both the venue and catering. They were so professional. They made our wedding day so easy and more than anything I could imagine. They have a great price, a connected caterer, and so many things included. It was also intimate and just our wedding there. So no waking through it seeing other weddings or events going on. Many of my guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, how well it fit our theme, the delicious food, and intimate setting. I couldn’t have asked for more.Sent on 03/15/2021

Amazing! Would highly recommend
Our reception was a Sunday brunch and it was perfection! The venue is absolutely beautiful! The staff of millennia catering was amazing, and we wanted for nothing! We worked with Angie throughout the entire process, and she was so easy to deal with and extremely responsive! Our one concern while booking was the highway noise in the back yard portion of the venue, but with music and speakers you can’t hear the highway. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and how yummy the food was! We can’t say enough good things!Sent on 09/07/2020
