Perfect for a vintage/rustic style wedding - An Eventective User

I had my vintage/rustic inspired wedding here and had the pleasure of working with the park's wedding manager, Karla. The whole experience was amazing... From the beautiful historic church setting (which makes your pictures look outstanding), to Karla's quick and responsive help. I received several compliments from my guests about how much they loved attending our ceremony there. Some helpful tips to know: 1-Only fake flower decorations are allowed in the church for preservation purposes (bouquets and boutonnieres may be real flowers); 2-You reserve for a 3 hour block in which everything must be done in...setup, ceremony, and clean up. Would highly recommend!
