wedding, An Eventective User from Rockford

We were married here on 6/01/10. We had a small ceremony outside and the reception immediately followed. Ray (the manager) was so helpful all throughout the process. The bride and groom suites were perfect and so convenient. The mansion provided our dream wedding and I would definitely recommend to anyone!
