Parking was very convenient. It was awesome that you get the venue to yourself for the whole day. That absolutely made it worth the money. They do enough weddings that they have the flow down pat, but you don't feel like your part of an assembly line. Oh, and it was a beautiful day in an exceptionally beautiful garden with such charming ambience. But, even if it had been cloudy or cold or rainy, I think it still would have been the place I wanted my wedding.
