    In the midst of a Pandemic - Paradise

    The Orchard is beautiful with several different places to choice for a wedding ceremony. Has a large groom & bridal areas, as well as, large kitchen & bar area. However, the best thing about the Orchard was the staff. Their communication even through the COVID changes was superb. Our time in the venue was 12 noon to 12 midnight for our 6PM wedding. No hidden cost or surprises. Kevin with the Orchard was at the venue the whole time. He stayed out of sight, but must of been watching things closely. Because every time something was needed. He appeared and took care of it. Thanks to the outstanding place & staff. Made it a dream wedding.
