  • My wife and I got married here and we had a great experience. The prep rooms in the back are pretty small, but we didn't really care about that too much.
  • If you want to see somthing beautiful and peaceful go there! I sometimes have a little picnic with my family near it ~ it is not rare to see a weeding taking there or weeding photo shoot, or other types of celebrations.
