Amazing Experience - An Eventective User from Farmersville TX

The owner, Michael, writes the book in Hospitality. This was an amazing experience,. Michael organized the entire wedding in 5 days as our original venue could not host due to excessive rain. Michael arranged for outside and inside wedding with hopes the garden wedding was still possible. The rain won out, but the inside service was beautiful. This is a beautiful location with multiple gardens to choose from, bridal/groom suites, and a gorgeous reception hall. Thank you to Michael, and staff who went above and beyond to accommodate my daughters wedding. You made her dream wedding a reality.
