All the wood inside really made it feel natural and inviting. We were able to keep decorations to a minimum because it was so pretty! Guests were able to walk around outside, look at animals in the animal room, and kids had lots of fun going down the slides in between the ceremony and reception.
There are tons of great places at the venue for pictures, so I know we’ll have a lot of different looks even though they were all on the premises!All our guests loved the venue. It has a lot to offer. There’s so much natural wood that we didn’t need to do much decorating. My now-husband and I both like sustainability and nature, so this also really complimented our personalities, which a lot of guests commented on as well.
