Greystone was exactly the setting we wanted for our big day -- a very European feeling, quiet and elegant. The flowers were in bloom for our April wedding and the garden was perfect. We had our reception at the Courtyard, which was lovely. (There is huge construction going on right now up the hill next door, which is visible from the poolhouse, so you would want to check on that progress before booking that area. They only actually do construction during the week, but it's not very attractive right now.) You do have to bring EVERYTHING in -- every chair, fork, glass, etc. as well as generators for the caterers. You have absolutely no access to the indoor area. I agree with previous post about Barbara being scattered. (Just get everything in writing.) But all the park rangers you have to deal with are awesome, especially Steve. They help you out so much on the day of the wedding, and help your guests, too. If you have an afternoon wedding in the garden, think about getting parasols for guests, since the sun is very strong and the garden offers no shade at all. The park ranger said that usually if you don't offer parasols, guests end up going to their cars and getting their rain or golf umbrellas for shade, which ends up looking hideous in pictures! I recommend Greystone highly. I hope we can afford to have an anniversary party there one day!

Brigitte was the best investment of the entire wedding. She was calm, professional, prompt, capable, and genuinely pleasant with everyone. She brought a wonderful calm to both the rehearsal and the wedding day itself. There was a snag with the number of tables the rental company brought and she handled it all beautifully. My family and my new in-laws just raved about how wonderfully she dealt with everything and everyone. On top of everything, she takes terrific pictures and you never even see her with a camera! I would highly recommend any bride hire her, without hesitation.

Keith and Tasha are an unbeatable photography team! Not only do they take fantastic and artistic photographs, but they are wonderful to work with -- as charming as they are talented. We had some very specific requests, and they were extremely easy-going, adaptable, and creative. My family and in-laws loved them, and guests said they didn't even realize the photographers were around. We're so happy with our pictures, and will cherish them forever.
