Perfect In Every Way
We also used the Rose Garden at the 4 mile location for the ceremony and it was perfect!! Great for pictures. We had the reception at the ballroom on West River which is always beautiful. Food was great and highly recommend for a large number of friends and family.
Thank you Alex and Kim for being so patient with me during this covid planning and making both my daughters wedding PERFECT!!
