"We wanted our event to have the feel of a back-yard family party and we wanted to encourage our family and wedding party members to actually take a few days off. Staying at the estate for the week allowed us exactly that. As a host, Laurie was an excellent resource for local vendors and was spectacularly warm. The house is stunning and comfortable providing the perfect blend of environment of rest and relaxation while also providing incredible decor for photo backdrops. My family is already talking about scheduling regular vacations at the estate, and we can't wait to revisit a place that now holds such incredible significance."
