We had our wedding here last month! It is truly an incredibly beautiful and unique space! We had the most perfect day. Julie was always quick to accommodate and answer any of my questions throughout the planning process, and Susie oversaw my wedding day from start to finish! She refreshed our rooms and kept the event space spotless. She even came in the following day (a Sunday) to help us retrieve some of our items from the reception! The James Ward made our wedding unforgettable. It was perfect. There is no other venue like it!Sent on 12/10/2019
