This was a great venue to host my wedding! My guests loved it! From my young friends who love outdoors to my older relatives who appreciated the classic style of the house. Parking was easy for ... Read more guests. The weather was perfect; warm and sunny. The staff were helpful before and during the wedding. The house had everything we needed to heat and serve out the food as well as get myself, the bride and the bridesmaids ready. There was lots of space for kids to play and people to wander around. Almost everywhere you look there is a great backdrop for a photo shoot. I feel really good about our decision to have our wedding here.
