My husband and I had our wedding here on November 7, 2020, and it was beyond PERFECT! The venue itself is breathtaking from the moment you drive up to it, and the owners were so kind & incredible to work with. We used the property for our rehearsal/rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony/cocktail hour/reception, and Sunday morning brunch. You’re really able to make it your own, with your own vendors, and bring your wedding vision to life. As a bonus, the bridal suite was amazing – it was so fun to get ready the morning of with my bridesmaids and family, but also, it was the perfect retreat to calm my nerves the day before. We couldn’t believe the cost when they told us and each couple gets the entire venue Friday morning-Sunday morning.
