Lynette and Jim's Wedding

We enjoyed using the Essex Conf. and Retreat Center for our outdoor wedding. It is a lovely setting and the staff is very helpful. There is a bit more DIY than some weddings, such as finding your own vendors and/or decorating and doing things yourself. But we liked this aspect. Best of all, many of the guests could stay on ground at the center for the entire weekend.
