---You made our wedding so wonderful! We can't thank you enough!  I can't wait to see the pictures out in the yard...I'm sure they will be beautiful!  The service you gave us was exactly what we were expecting and could not have been better!   LOVE, Crystal & Justin Schwartz

---After a whirlwind weekend, I'm actually at a loss for words as to how wonderful our wedding was...Everything, from the scenery to the convenience of being nearby, was awesome.  We couldn't have hoped for a more perfect experience from start to finish.  Even with a few wedding "bumps in the road", it all worked out PERFECT. 
  We will definitely be back for a more relaxing visit in the near future.  Thank you for all the great memories, for the great conversation, and for the wedding breakfast.  Looking forward to the "Tower of Sin" breakfast we missed out on this time around!!   Chris & Georgia Weiler
