Whistler & Holly were absolutely wonderful to work with! They made our wedding planning process run smoothly; they were quick to respond to any emails or phone calls, and they basically had everything laid out for us along the way to keep us organized. The venue was more than we could have asked for; people are still talking about our wedding months later! They partner w/a few approved caterers, which made our food selection super easy, and they had every option available as far as a full bar goes for our guests! They even had local suggestions for us when it came to searching for DJs/music, florists, bakeries ~ I would recommend Whistler's to anyone, 5++ stars!!Sent on 01/01/2018
