Our Dream Wedding Come True!

We had our wedding here! I can't get over how absolutely perfect every single thing was! Marta, our event coordinator, was PHENOMENAL! I emailed her a ton and every single time she got back to me ... Read more right away! She truly loves her job and put so much love and care into our big day. We love how much direction she helped to give us every step of the way. Our wedding would not have been the show stopper it was without Marta!!! I actually started to tear up saying goodbye to her at the end, because I truly miss her already! Getting married at Independence Grove with Marta by our side was the best decision we made in our wedding planning! If you're reading this, Marta, we love you!
