"I don't know how to repay you for your excellent services you provided. WOW, your venue is Breathtakingly PERFECT for a barn wedding!!! You did everything right for this venue! And you continue to add and change things to make it better and better. I have too many compliments to count on how many family and friends came up and told us how gorgeous the venue was!
You, yourself Sherry, are a class act and are so on top of things. You never made me question once choosing your venue. You were very attentive to emails and responses were rapid and never made me wait. You guys truly value the people you are working with as one of your family and not just another customer. I know that a lot of your life is now dedicated to this venue and you spend a lot of hours making it perfect for each event held there, which shows!"
