Chad was positively amazing! Holding a wedding in the midst of this pandemic was challenging to say the least but Chad and our coordinator Kayla Williams (Wedding by Williams) made our wedding perfect. The venue is gorgeous being situated on the banks of Lake Keowee, the food was spectacular, and the services was second to none. Wedding photos were taking a while out in the sun so Chad brought my his and and I our preferred cocktails to sip between shots near the lake. It was so very thoughtful. I can't express all the ways he went above and beyond to make our day run smoothly. I recommend this venue highly for a wedding and/or reception! The price I am listing includes venue and food for the reception for 45 people.Sent on 10/07/2020
