    October Wedding at the Palace

    We had our wedding at the Palace and everything was perfect! Kristen was so helpful and super responsive. She helped me plan everything from the day we booked till the day of the wedding. She was also there on the day of to make sure everything went smoothly. All of our guests loved the food and it was super spacious and accommodating. I would recommend it to anyone planning a wedding!
