Truly beautiful venue and the staff was amazing

We had our ceremony here and it was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and ensured that everything was just the way we wanted it. They kept in contact with us the month or so prior to ensure everything was perfect and during the rehearsal Jian was patient with our million questions.
Even with the wind that day it was amazing.
After the ceremony, when we were walking around taking photos we had such a pleasant experience. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location to have our wedding at.
After the ceremony our guests were able to explore the grounds and enjoy the rest of the afternoon there while waiting for the rest of the festivities to being at an different location.
