This was my DREAM wedding venue. I actually bumped into on Pinterest and thought "I could never afford this place" and moved on. I bumped into again on wedding wire after I created my budget and was pleasantly surprised that this was actually a viable option for us, especially since we could do both the ceremony and reception there.

Gaby, the chef/owner, was amazing. She's laid back, but gets the job done, which was great for us. She is an outrageously good chef. Everything we ate at the tasting was so amazing. I was so fearful that I wouldn't get a chance to eat the appetizers that I had her set some aside for us at the bride/groom table. I was NOT going to miss out on our wedding food.

She was so flexible with us coming to see the venue, returning to take measurements of everything so I could make my decorations accordingly, allowing us drop stuff off the day before and come early the day of to set up. She answered my millions of questions through e-mail in a timely fashion. She made her staff available to me to help set up all the decorations I made. She refused to allow me on the ladder to hang up bunting and urged me to use her staff. She checked up on me throughout the day while we got ready, offering coffee, water, even whiskey to the groom. There is plenty of room to get ready in the Hofner room (the ladies were here) or the loft of the goat barn (the men).

She has the mahogany folding chairs for the ceremony and mahogany chiavari chairs for the reception so you don't have to rent those! All the decorations you need for the ceremony is an arch or fabric to drape on the branches of the 200 year old oak tree (we used voile to get the beautiful, flowy look I wanted). She let us do a sparkler send off, which some venues don't allow. Outside catering is also allowed, but why would you when her food is so amazing? Anything you want, you just have to ask. She usually says yes :D.

Thank you so much Gaby, you helped us have the PERFECT wedding.
