    Very lovely venue

    We loved this venue the moment we saw it and so did our guests! Our ceremony was in the Wetlands which was awesome for the guests as they got a chance to walk around before and after the ceremony and admire the beauty and hard work they put into it. The reception was at the Alumni Center. We really liked it as it was a massive space with a dedicated dance floor, bar and kitchen. Plus it’s just walking distance from the hotel and ceremony! I will say there was lots of construction happening outside and inside the main doors which we didn’t love but we’re able to work around it.
