My husband and I are very casual and fun people, and we were looking for a relaxed venue to host our wedding ceremony/reception that also didn't break the bank. . Overall we had a very mixed experience with the venue. It is very evident that they do not have many weddings at the venue.

Pros:
- The space is pretty flexible, and with a little creativity it can really be whatever you want it to be.
- They allow wedding guests to ride the carousel during the wedding reception!!!! So fun!
- They do have a list of caterers that they require you to use. We found a loophole as they told us that we could ANY caterers drop off the food and set it up, as long as they left and didn't serve the food. This worked out well for us as my family is incredible and supportive, and attended to food. This enabled us to have a restaurant we really LOVE cater the wedding.
- The patio space is included in the rental. We were able to arrange the chairs on the patio so that we could have a beautiful outdoor ceremony

Cons:
- Timing is VERY difficult. Wedding rentals are from 4:30 to 12:30, or 5:00- 1:00. We were able to reserve the birthday party block before our wedding so that we had the party space from 1:15 on. This allowed us to set up part of the venue earlier in the day, and we were lucky to have a wedding coordinator that was able to set up the rest of the space when we had access to it at 4:30.
- Communication is absolutely nonexistent. We signed our contract in June, and when we were in town for our engagement photos in September we visited the venue. We discovered that they had put a HUGE and very tacky sign on the front of the building. They were aware that we were planning on having our ceremony in that space, and didn't communicate this change to us. They also painted a very large mural on the wall (which they painted over for us), and installed a Rockstar energy drink cooler in the space without informing us.
- They required that we store our rentals outside.

Our guests had a wonderful time at our reception venue, the only thing was that there wasn't much flexibility in time. It would have been nice to have a little more time.

They were all very easy to work with and helped us in any way that we needed. They even provided a staff member at no extra charge to have the gift shop open during the event.
