    This was our dream venue, delicious food and the service was amazing!
    I dealt with Eileen and Molly and both were fabulous!
    The Chef and Pastry Chef allowed us to make our own menu and everything was delicious!
    They made everything very easy and memorable!
    Everyone is still talking about how wonderful it was!
    I highly recommend them!
