    This was our first choice and I'm so glad that they were available for our small wedding. It is a beautiful setting, warm and inviting. The upstairs gallery is perfect for hair and make-up as the natural daylight flows through the windows. There are also classrooms downstairs that can be used for changing clothes. The actual hall where we had the wedding ceremony and the dinner is fabulous, especially the stained glass window that faces west where the sun shines through it. I loved this venue and would highly recommend it.

    They were great. I loved that they charged by the hour it made it cheaper then going with someone else. And if you don't have alot of money then they are perfect. The place is beautiful.
