    Dream venue

    My husband and I got married in October, and it was the PERFECT day. Everything ran smoothly and everyone worked together so well. Unfortunately we got rained out, which rarely happens, but our wedding coordinator and her team made sure our indoor ceremony site was beautiful and that we were taken care of. Could not stop getting compliments regarding the food and how delicious it was. I was pregnant at the time, and when they brought out “bride’s signature drink” I was surprised with Shirley Temples (my favorite) also being served with the glow sticks so I could enjoy too! The staff always made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hands and that we didn’t need anything. Our guests still talk about how cool this venue is, along with its originality. If I had to do this day again, there is not a thing I would change.

    The Gatsby's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Megan! We loved having you! Wishing you and your husband the best!
