    Wonderful place to have your wedding/reception. The brides changing room was fabulous! The area around the Griswold is beautiful. The pictures turned out amazing. We didn't have anyone to play the music during the ceremony and the Griswold had someone do it for us. The staff was great to work with.

    This venue was a wonderful place to hold our wedding ceremony and reception! The rates were very reasonable and they were flexible with our choice of vendors! Vicki was a wonderful help in making sure there was always someone there to lend a hand while we were at the venue and our ceremony and reception went without any issues as a result! $
