    Gorgeous and affordable

    This venue is perfect for a small or large wedding . The staff was very friendly and accommodating to the windy wedding day I had! Amanda showed us the ins and out of the venue and it was hard not fall in love! Amanda helped work out vendor options and gave recommendations to great drinks. My guest loved the his/her cocktails she suggested. My favorite part is the lovely view of downtown Acworth !
