Beautiful Stress Free Venue!!
Best venue hands down! I had about 5 weeks to plan my wedding...yes 5 weeks! Due to COVID-19 I had so many last minute changes with my wedding, including venue cancelations. Tricia and her team pulled it off and it was everything I dreamed it would be. This venue has so many different types of packages to choose from that you can literally get it all here. Its a one stop shop here and I loved that! Not to mention the FOOD WAS AMAZING! We have picky eaters in my family and we had so many people inquire about our menu selections after the wedding lol Everyone was so nice and patient! It also rained on my wedding day and they were able to move everything inside in no time. And a big shoutout to Breeann, our coordinator! She was new to the team yet still went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect!Sent on 09/23/2020

Amazing venue and people
I can’t say enough about this venue. It’s beautiful and elegant. Exactly what I was looking for. Especially with the chandeliers and beautiful staircase. The garden area was also so so perfect. I had always planned on having my ceremony outside. With my then fiancé being in the military, wedding planning was rushed because we never know what’s going to happen. Next thing I knew, my then fiancé was getting deployed so we had to postpone. Tricia, the owner, was so understanding and waiting for us to get a later date. Tricia and Leslie are just amazing and made the process so easy. When the big day came around they made sure everything was perfect and ran smoothly. This place is just amazing.Sent on 04/23/2020
