We rented all the units A-F for our wedding weekend! It was the perfect location and atmosphere to host my friends and family! The rooftop was amazing for hanging out and the we used the courtyard below for our First Look and getting ready photos! It was PERFECT! The pictures turned out beautiful! The staff onsite and at Vacasa, specifically Kay Grant, was super helpful throughout the whole process! I couldn't be happier to have booked this location for such a big weekend! Thank you!!
