We recently held our wedding at the homestead and it went off without a hitch. Having free range of the homestead for the whole day made it a stress free day. It is great to be able to get ready, setup, take photos, hold the ceremony and reception all in the same location. Beautiful backdrop no matter where you look, accommodated by friendly staff and delicious food. Thanks again Gerry and Ann!
