Great Experience and Wonderful Staff
The event turned out great
Our ceremony went perfectly. However, the church was booked about an hour and a half after ours and people were arriving for that wedding while we were still taking photos... I feel like that was extremely unprofessional to have a venue booked in so closely to another’s. At least give us time to tear down, my mother and mother-in-law had to take down all of the ceremony decor as we were taking pictures, so the other wedding party could have the venue.
The reception was great, our guests loved everything about it. It was beautiful. However, the “security” at the “end” of the night (10 pm) was overbearing .. for the amount of money you spend for your day to be amazing, having to deal with some of the staff was a headache. The girls that helped setup the venue and helped us with last minute things at the beginning of the the night were great.
The security staff at the end of the night- were definitely not enjoyable. The end of the evening was cut short, due to me just being absolutely done dealing with some members of the park staff following around my guests. It got overwhelming, so I called it a night early considering we had until 2 am to clean up the venue.
Other than that mishap and unprofessionalism , I rated the venue fairly decent. Just for the fact that the venue was beautiful for pictures and the theme we were going for.
Good but had some hiccups
Nothing but good things to say
