Amazing location for a summer wedding!
It was perfect!
I also want to give a huge shout out to the management staff. They were all incredibly attentive before and during our wedding which made the whole day run without any issues. My day was so special, and so perfect, and a large part of that is thanks to the BYC.
Kim is an amazing coordinator
The best Venue... not joking
Wedding at BYC May 2018
Venue price included all linens and chair covers in many colours and drapings on the ceiling. They hung back drop linens and paper lanterns for us. They allowed us to customize our meal and were just so easy going. Loved it all. No stress with the venue even when it poured on my day.
