Woman Getting Married Says
First off, let’s get this out of the way. This venue is what I like to call “priceayyyyy” (yes, it’s supposed to be drawn out like that). It’s not cheap, that’s for sure. But have you seen it? It’s crazy gorgeous. The good news? I don’t even think you’d have to do much more than put some candles and MINIMAL flowers on the tables. Anything else would totally take away from this amazing setting. You can also bring in your own vendors (from a pre-approved list), so you’re also going to have flexibility when it comes to your catering.
One thing I would note, however, is that caterers will not have use of the kitchen (they have to use the garage as a prep space), and some vendors (and guests) have reported that GETTING here can be a bit tricky, but I guess that’s why you have those amazing views! I would also try to keep your guest list 125 and under so people aren’t cramped. Are you going to need a big budget for a wedding here? Yes. There’s no way around that. But if you have it you gotta check this place out.
