Wedding of our dreams
West Coast Wedding
Once we got everything settled, we had an amazing wedding day. The grounds and building were beautiful. We had great service in picking our wine. The food was incredible and plentiful. We had great service from the serving staff.
I would recommend Church and State but only if you are willing to really keep an eye on your quotes and keep up communication with the events manager. We were lucky to have our wedding coordinator help with many of the issues. It is a beautiful site with great food but be prepared to deal with less than helpful management staff.
