“I fell in love with this venue from the beginning. I was looking for something different other than the typical banquet room, but romantic and personal. I had a 100 guests and everyone had a wonderful time. The food was amazing…everyone said they had never seen so much food served at a wedding and it tasted fantastic! The staff was professional and courteous they made the transition from the ceremony to the dinner setting seamless. I remember sitting at our sweetheart table looking out over our guests and thinking this is exactly what I pictured my wedding to look like…it was perfect!”– Melissa, The Knot

“This was the perfect venue for us! Beautiful rustic gardens, perfectly manicured for our ceremony and cocktail party with an urban type loft for the reception. The best of both worlds! Melissa was a dream to work with and the food was well, amazing! Definitely NOT banquet food. This venue created a magical experience and the comfort the staff provided was excellent. We would highly recommend this venue.–Elizabeth, Wedding Wire
