Why We Like This Place

  • Given their name, it’s no surprise you say “I do” in a wooded setting. Start on the lovely grass site, surrounded by shade trees. Then, continue with an al fresco celebration on the Central Plaza, where the stairway offers graceful curves and a canopy of stars sparkles overhead.
  • The pièce de résistance is the awesome, 72-foot beamed ceiling in Miller Hall. The distinctive architecture of this round building (their largest facility) is complemented by stone floors, a charming entry vestibule, large foyer and adjacent patio. It all adds up to a quiet, rustic elegance.
