I am the mother of the groom,and was very disappointed with the professionlism of Mark, first of all we booked what was called the Venetian room which was beautifully made up to look like old Italy with vines growing up the walls and ceiling,so my son and fiance decided to go with a wine inspired wedding and set the whole decor of the wedding around that room. Two weeks before the wedding when they went to finalize the menu Mark told them "Oh by the way we painted the room" my son was in shock and the next day his fiance e-mailed Mark about it and he was very rude, and said well you liked it when you saw it. Yeah, but, that was not the room they booked and were not offered any kind of compensation. Mark was also rude to their DJ,he asked him what all this crap was he was bringing in and would'nt let him in early to set up.Overall the place is beautiful, the food amazing,the service a little to good, you had to guard you drinks and plates, cause as soon as you got up to dance you came back and it was gone. The grounds are beautiful, but, when we went out to the orchard for pictures there was so much deer poop, some of the girls got it on they're dresses. The ceremony went beautifully, had a little rain, but thats supposed to be good luck. For that reason cocktail hour had to be moved inside and it was so crowded you had to stand and eat. Finally people went outside and we had to get someone to come wipe off the chairs. I would recommend this venue, but, I recommend you don't deal with Mark, he does'nt seem to have the passion for it his parents did.
