I had such a amazing experience at Vecoma 10 out of 10. The staff were so nice and accommodating. Anytime I have a question or concern they get back to me with the upmost urgency.When I went to view the space it was so beautiful and spacious. I especially liked the patio and the outside the most because of the nature. You’ll have many places to take gorgeous pictures for your special day. I would recommend this place to anybody that is looking for a place to have a wedding.
