    The event coordinator was very easy to work with. She was able to accommodate our requests and change the menu to fit our tastes. She responded to phone calls and emails very quickly. The entire staff on the night of the event were very professional. Our wedding party and all of our guests were treated very well. We would recommend this venue for a wedding of any size.
