She reduced a lot of our stress and anxiety and was very calming and approachable. Marvin was a fantastic host as master of ceremonies and had a positive impact on the atmosphere of the whole day. He was charismatic, friendly and approachable and again nothing was too much trouble. Both real assets to your company.”

My wife Jen had the most amazing day, and the rooms and grounds were a perfect venue, which many of the guests commented on with praise.
