Hidden Gem!

I can't say enough good things about AST, we immediately fell in love with this quaint historic venue on the waterfront! Even though we got married in December, the water was absolutely beautiful and the sun set was a nice surprise with floor to ceiling windows!! We got compliments from EVERYONE about the stunning space from the chapel to the lodge. And to think we booked this venue for under $700 just takes the cake!
The coordinator is absolutely lovely, thorough, and had everything set up for us when we arrived so we just had to throw up our decor to be ready - I wish I could do it all again so I could enjoy the view one more time!
Truly a hidden gem in Halifax
