    If you're undecided about whether or not to book at WCL, email Sarah and she can give you an idea of the menus they have and the pricing options. WCL has two areas for events, upstairs for smaller events and downstairs for larger events. I was amazed at how Sarah was able to customize our wedding to be exactly what we wanted and at the price we wanted too! If you're looking for a unique venue, this is the place to go! They have an extensive catering menu, from BBQ to plated dinners so you can be sure you'll find something you like. With the WCL rental, you also get the production crew to do lighting and sound, which was a great perk for us! On the day of the wedding, the staff took great care of us and our guests. I got a lot of compliments about the food and venue so if you're on the fence about this venue, email Sarah or go and check it out yourself, it is definitely worth it!!
