Brooke and Drew Schelar

Mike, Thank you SO MUCH for everything. It's so crazy to think about how we signed on with you and a building with no staff, floors, bar, finished bathrooms, etc and ended the journey with the most perfect, beautiful wedding we could have ever imagined! We had the perfect amount of customization from our vision mixed with great ideas and suggestions from your team and experience. Knowing that we didn't have to worry about searching for an outsider catering company, a separate ceremony space, finding much decoration (the place is so beautiful as is, we didn't need to add much), or even a wedding planner (Mike, you pretty much took over much of that role for us) made the wedding planning process much more manageable. You and your staff (big props to Aaron) gave us such peace of mind with your attention to details, kindness and fantastic service. We could really tell that you and your staff genuinely cared about our happiness and how smoothly the day went. All of our guests were raving over how delicious the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and how flawless the day was. Thank you for making the best day of our lives everything that it was! 



We strive to make every event a work of art. See what others have to say.
