This venue is beautiful, our guest couldn't stop talking about it and neither could we. We loved this venue. It was the first and only venue we looked at because we fell in love the moment we saw it. The fort has grown a lot since we signed our contract but only for the better!... Read More We signed our contract a little more than a year and a half before the wedding and along the way we ran into some hiccups and Dori, Erin and Jana were more than willing to help us create the best possible day and accommodate what we wanted. Jana was brought on shortly before our wedding but she jumped in and was right there for anything I needed and would answer my call every time and was more than willing to help us and answer questions and give input when we needed it. The staff the day of was extremely helpful and tried to keep this running as smoothly as possible which was really challenging with our families but they did a great job and were always on top of it. I can not say enough about how top notch this venue was and how appreciative I am of the staff.
