Look at the fine prints

We loved this venue in first sight. It looked exactly what we were looking for. We booked a date right away Little did we know about the hidden fees associated with their exclusive caterer: scholar ... Read more catering. We asked for a meeting for about four months to go over the day and good options. They add a lot of labor services on top of food charges and other dependencies that we’re very unclear until the very end. Their food is below average and due to the lack of communication, terrible service and hidden fees we decided to cancel this venue last minute.

This venue is gorgeous, perfect for a spring floral wedding. There are separate rooms that you can dedicate to dinner, dancing, greeting guests, bridal dressing area etc. The staff is also very ... Read more knowledgeable and friendly, though my coordinator was on vacation on my wedding day and only the student coordinator and proctor were there. I would recommend this venue for small weddings, because the dining room was quite cramped and there wasn't much room for people to walk around.

My fiance and i book this location for the summer of 2018. We were told when that we had to put a down payment in order to keep our date... The Manager Mariella explained to us that even tho the ... Read more contract said there were penalties for cancellations they would not be in effect if we were to give a fair amount of time and notice. So we put our trust in her word and put down our payment.. We booked a day to come and see the venue with my mom and Mariella never showed up she claimed she had a meeting....we then tried multiple times to get in contact with her to get dimensions and facts on the building and she continued to give us strictly info that was in the booklets that were given to us already..(she was no help at all) We then had to cancel due to personal reasons. and Mariella with ZERO consideration to our prior conversion of over looking the penalties put our cancelation thru to the accounting department and we were penalized $1000 out of the 2500.... We have since tried to make contact with her by phone and she has ignore our voicemail's and has made no effort to simply answer our questions... The location is beautiful but the Woman running the show has poor people skills and a lack of respect and integrity... it would be a so nice if she could simply respond to our messages.
