Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
They're all lovely and different! The most unusual was probably the murder mystery wedding... roving actors and a crime to solve! A great way to entertain and join people. It was all themed with ghoulish, gothic props.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
