Real Testimonials:

  • "Having our wedding at Venue 481 was outstanding! For us, it was  preferable to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue and we  loved the many versatile indoor/outdoor options, which means that our photos were incredible and diverse as well!"
    - Natalie McNichols 


  • "Absolutely stunning! The venue itself offers many opportunities to anyone looking for an outdoor, indoor, or a cross between both for a wedding. Very well taken care of along with the landscaping that it gives the country feeling not far from civilization. They have a partial kitchen to do clean up and I would highly recommend anyone that desires an easy, country wedding to utilize this venue."
