    Not only is the Patio a breathtaking location, but their event coordinator Lisa and her assistance, guidance and personal attention are second to none. We could have never had the wedding we had there without her help. She is genuine and supportive and will help you every step of the way! We LOVED our reception and everyone who attended our wedding is still commenting on how gorgeous the space was! Its worth every penny becuase of the help and support that Lisa provides. Without the help that she provides its just an old mansion.
