"Samantha and Besti were SO amazing during the wedding planning process! It was not easy planning a wedding during a world pandemic, but they made it as smooth as they possibly could and was always lending an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on if needed. Those girls ROCK!!!" -7/26/2020

"I can never thank Betsi and Samantha enough for their hard work and help to make our ceremony and reception perfect. Planning a wedding during a pandemic was the most stressful thing I have ever dealt with, but they stayed in close contact and did everything possible to make sure we would have the best day. The grand ball room was gorgeous, the food amazing, and the decorations were just right. I can not recommend this venue enough. These ladies are amazing and they know how to make sure your day is PERFECT." -8/26/2020

"We fell in the love with the venue when we walked in, and Betsy and Samantha were amazing in helping us plan, and replan our big day twice because of Covid. We had no worries on the day, they took care of everything before and after, and the service in the midst of a pandemic was amazing. We were so lucky to finally have our celebration there!" -9/4/2020
