"Thank you and your team from the bottom our hearts.  I can honestly say that I did not have a single worry or care on Saturday.  Everything went so smoothly, and the night absolutely flew by.  I got SO many compliments from my guests about how amazing the food was, how nice/attentive the staff was, and how beautiful the room was."

" Kelly and Cassie were an absolute pleasure to work with and did everything in their power to make our special day perfect. Any request and detail or idea that we had they were able make happen. The owner Mike met with us multiple times and took us through the process of building the new venue which is absolutely stunning. You can tell he takes pride in his work and is in the business of making people happy. As far as the venue and event staff go, it's perfect. We had multiple guests tell us that it was not only the best wedding meal but meal in general that they've ever had!"
