    Wedding June 15th 2019

    Words cannot express how much my now husband and I loved our wedding. Monica made the entire experience less stressful took care of every question and need promptly. Also reccommmended Kate in house florist which made my vision a reality with linen n centerpieces. The cake is made in house and not only did it taste amazing it looked gorgeous. Monica Ganter just went above and beyond in Wedding planning she matched our personality with helping to create our perfect day. My family and friends are still raving about it from food to space and accommodate a large band like go go gadget. Cannot continue to express how perfect it was. Pricing was great running a special when we booked. But in all honesty me and my fiancé went to three other places and would spent a ton more if we decided to not go with Monica or the William Penn Inn. I hope this helps anyone who is planning a wedding. Wedding planning can be really stressful so go with someone who makes it less stressful as. Possible. Thanks you again.
