Truly amazing venue!

This venue is absolutely amazing! The price was perfect and they have everything you could ask for and many things I didn't even know I needed! Marshall and Sandy were so kind and helpful! They were very flexible when it rained and we had the wedding inside last minute! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding at a more beautiful and perfect place!

Seldom have I ever met someone like Sandy, here at the Colonel, with such a grand sense of pride and dedication to delivering an amazing experience for her guests. She was eager to bend over backwards, never said no, and jumped all over any minor problem or issue we asked about. At its core it was a short-term-transactional relationship, yet I now consider her a dear friend. (To say nothing of the gorgeous setting and excellent facilities.) THANKS!!
