I just attended a wedding here and it was magnificent. On the first floor, there was a band, full bar and snacks served while we waiting for the bride and groom to arrive. We went upstairs for a buffet dinner and dancing ... and the bar moved upstairs with us 🙂 Everything was perfect and the setting was beautiful.
