I cannot express how incredibly delightful it was to work with everyone at The Falls! I originally called because I'd had some sticker shock from another venue. I spoke with Brad and his attempt to describe the beauty of the outdoor waterfall sold me immediately. They sent us a contract by the end of the day. We visited later that month and booked our date! Some people talk about how pricey a wedding is at The Falls, but I honestly think it's an amazing value and I had no problem paying for convenience. I had stated early on that I didn't care about chair covers with bows and since they rent those, they were able to take that off our package price. The DJ (Top Cats) was included in our package and a shuttle was available to the Hampton Inn down the road for a small fee. Guests talked about how the shuttle was incredibly convenient! Although we rented our centerpieces from somewhere else, they had centerpieces we could have used for free or rent some from them. The food was absolutely amazing! I didn't quite finish all of my dinner because I was a bit overwhelmed by the whole day and I completely regret it! We had our ceremony outside by the waterfall. We were able to do pictures there beforehand and we had the area for the rest of the evening. It was so nice to have a private space to escape to for some fresh air throughout the night! I don't recall there being any problems at all and even if there had been, I know that they would have taken care of it immediately. They honestly have thought of everything! There were a couple of times when the way they typically did things didn't quite mesh with my vision, but because of all of their experience, they always had good reasons why their way made sense and I was totally on board. We got so many compliments throughout the night and after the wedding about how fun and wonderful the whole night was. My husband and I had such an amazing time we're planning to have a 5 year anniversary party there! I cannot recommend them moSent on 07/25/2015
