There's so much to love about small, intimate weddings. They way they feel so personal and so full of love. The way every wall, corner and rafter of your smaller venue is decorated with heart, detail and rustic wow.

So as much as we love these purse-friendly, intimate celebrations, we also love seeing our Garden Pavilion full of happy faces and the elation etched onto the bride and groom's faces as they saying their vows in front of all of their loved ones.
