This facility does not respond in a timely manner to anything. There is no consistent way to make contact with the event person. Everything seemed very disjointed and I did not have very much confidence in having my wedding reception there. The grounds are attractive except for the back entrance. The indoor area presented well, but was not quite the style I was looking for.

I eventually chose another facility and very glad I did!

Please save time and stress by going to a more put together venue. The place is beautiful, but the venue does not have a good system in place. I paid the venue to provide a wedding cake. Guess what? I didn't have one! I had no Bride's cake on my wedding-only a groom's cake that was provided by an outside vendor. We over estimated the number of people attending the wedding and still there was not enough appetizers, not enough plates, or silverware. People had to wait for these items. Also, I bought 15 bottles of champagne to be served. That would cover 100 people. Guess how many glasses of champagne were served...NONE. I now how 15 bottles of champagne at my house... They hardly will e-mail you back. They will say they will call you and don't. I am not one to get stressed easily so this was not a total disaster, but I would just say save time and stress by going somewhere else. The venue staff is nice, but just because they are nice does not mean they will throw a good party. I do not recommend spending thousands of dollars here.

A beautiful location for a fantastic price. The food was delicious too. They also cooridnate everything on the wedding day. I couldn't have been happier! They can be a bit hard to get hold of, but will always return calls when you leave a message. Also, be sure to review your final invoice before paying. Always a good idea just to check :)

They were great all the way around. I was a nervous bride and the onsite planner helped me on the day of the wedding sooo much. She walked me through each step and got me ready before hand. I appreciate everything they did for us!!!

I wanted to get married here since I was a little girl! While we couldn't afford to hold the ceremony there, the reception was an incredible deal and could not have been more perfect. They have been doing this for a long time and they thought of things I never would have thought to ask about and took care of them! The food was amazing and the service... just wow. Everyone liked it so much my aunt ended up booking her reception with them as well when she got married!

This was ideal for us mainly b/c we live 5 miles from the location. It is beautiful both inside and out. As for value, it was a lot of money to spend but compared to other locations and hearing how much our friends paid for just the venue of their weddings, I think it's great bang for the buck.
