  • The grounds were beautiful, the ceremony was wonderful, with Jeff's added humor, which we all love, and the reception perfect!  The coordinators were outstanding throughout the day with each special and final touch. The lady who took charge of the food definitely aimed to please!  The photo booth was a hit with our family and friends, and the staff running the show there were all friendly and fun as well! I couldn't have felt more relaxed and genuinely enjoyed the entire day!  We're still getting comps on choosing your beautiful Venue.  Most have said it was the perfect, most beautiful wedding that they will always remember!
