The wedding I attended here was beautiful, but there were somethings that were overlooked. On the day of the wedding, the bridal party did not receive any complimentary water or anything.

Overall the venue was lovely and it was a great place for a wedding! – Meri via Google reviews.

This place was a perfect wedding venue for my friend last weekend! From the bridal suite being nice and roomy (with 2 bathrooms nonetheless) and the beer garden for cocktail hour was the perfect location.

Would definitely recommend this place to friends. – Emily Watson via Google reviews.
