    What started out positive quickly became negative

    We hired this vendor after visiting the ranch because we thought it would be the ideal place to have a country/rustic wedding. Donna seemed so accommodating and the location was beautiful. However, during the wedding weekend, we quickly realize she was just putting up a front. We arrive at the barn the day before the wedding and it was filthy, for $3500, we at least expected it to be clean. We had to wipe everything down, sweep the floor, scrub the bathroom, chairs and tables. There were cob web everywhere as if the place had not been touch in months. On the day of the wedding nothing was done that she indicated would be set up, our groomsmen had to set up ceremony chairs, etc. They (Smiths) merely park the antique truck near the barn. During the wedding Donna was acting like she was running the whole show. At first, we felt she was being helpful but we soon discovered that she was just trying to control the whole event and was trying to rush us out. Her husband was also, walking around being rude to our guest. At 9 pm she told the DJ to announce last call, when we had the barn until 11 pm per our agreement. We had purchased tons beverages to cover us from the time the bar service left until 11pm, we also paid several vendors to stay there until 10pm -11pm. When we asked her why she did that she said yes we had the barn until 11pm but the music needed to stop by 10 pm, which I was fine with. However, before I knew it. The table were being cleared off and our guest began to leave, by 9:30 the majority our guest were gone. We were very disappointed with the service.
