Wedding & Wedding Reception Reviews
The event center was absolutely beautiful and I am so glad I choose it for my wedding and reception. They are very affordable and very willing to work with you on making your event special. Ashley was also a big help and was always right there for anything we needed!...>
I had always dreamed of an outdoor wedding. This venue met my expectations and more. The backdrop of the lake behind us was gorgeous... Thank you Ashley & FVEC for helping make our day a wonderful stress free beautiful memory!...>
