Venue & Staff Were the Best
Venue and the ladies working there were the best. All the planning and preparation went so smoothly. Corinne was great in answering all the questions and helping with all the details. On the day, we had Angie helping us and overseeing that everything would go well. Having her there brought me and my husband so much peace on a big day. We didn't need to worry about anything and that allowed us fully enjoy our day. We are very happy that we went for this venue. It was beyond what we expected.
