Here’s what others are saying:

Dear Carol, Everything was perfect! The room was absolutely beautiful with the green bows to compliment the white chairs and the gorgeous flower arrangements atop the white tablecloths. The whimsical botanical walls were the perfect backdrop. Everyone commented on the room. I could not have made a better choice for my wedding venue. I do not think I can adequately express my appreciation to you and to your staff. Your enthusiasm and eager helpfulness were what impressed me the most. – Nancy
