Had my wedding reception and ceremony here. Gorgeous! All the guests were impressed and the rental price was reasonable for city residents. Heather is one to talk to, she knows her stuff. We were disappointed with our caterer and Heather helped rip them a new one too...because we got some money back from the caterer, I will not disclose their name or provide a review of them. Would recommend this venue to almost any function. Nothing else like it! I am a fan of the fall here especially 🙂
