Unreasonably rude owners made for a very bad venue here.I can relate to the previous poster commenting on the owner wanting the music turned down. This owner should not have any events here. Think again before having your event here. The owner of this venue yells and makes scenes at weddings. Everyone's jaws dropped to hear this Man yelling about everyone cheering at the bride/groom drive-off because it was too loud. The contract is supposed to be until 11pm, this was at 10:40. This was a very elegant weeding, and it was really weird to have that happen. So embarrassing.
We just had our wedding at this venue, and I would never recommend it. Though it was a beautiful outdoor setting, it was mostly attributed to the weather and not this venue. The property is covered with large trees that had low hanging branches with thorns, the misquitoes were horrendous and ate us alive after 7:00pm, the owner kept rudely reminding us to turn down the music even though there is no noise ordinance in place until after 11:00pm, we had to keep asking for supplies which should have already been provided, like garbage bags and above all the electrical system kept blowing fuses and obviously couldn't handle a sound system and a silly crock pot. Looks are decieving - spending a little more may get you the service you deserve. This place
I catered at this wedding with my dad for a friend back in 2008 and I loved the place, fell in love with it! I knew this is were I was going to get married! It has so much space and it has ponds bridges and streams and lots and lots of trees! They also have a small waterfall, gazeboe and a very nice building with two dressing rooms and bathrooms, the bridal room was big and had lots of shelfs and hooks to hang stuff up. They had lots of things to rent as well which was very helpful and they were very nice people. They let you use the place for the rehearsal for free. They also have an area with a few refrigirators and tables for your cater. This place was just beautiful and I loved that I got married here!
