My mom and I have worked with the director of wedding services for many years. So, we were able to secure a great deal on the wedding ceremony and reception. ALSO: to keep the costs down, we opted for a COCKTAIL RECEPTION as opposed to a sit down dinner. This way our guests can mingle, nosh on appetizers and enjoy the summer day without a too-heavy meal.
