Love Notes

Dream Fall wedding!

June 29, 2024

My husband and I got married at a gorgeous private estate. We decided to book RFE for it’s flexibility, peaceful and intimate settings. Our guest count was 80 and 30 of our closest family and friends stayed on the property. The newly renovated and updated inside of the buildings are amazing!

They also have their own personal chef and wedding coordinator, so everything was really easy to put together. Staff is very friendly and helpful, ready to assist at any time of the wedding process.If you are looking for a not cookie-cutter venue with no restrictions, this is definitely the place you want to be!
