    Accommodating is Key

    I've had the pleasure of Filming a wedding here. I've filmed at a lot of venues over the four years we've been doing this, but no one has been as accommodating as Lisa at The Worthington.

    When you have a Venue Coordinator that works to fit your needs instead of working to fit you into the venue's rules, you're going to have a great day!

    Rarely, do we have a coordinator make sure we have everything we need as well, but Lisa wanted to make sure everyone had everything they need to give the couple the best service possible!
