Our daughter was married in the estate at the East Wind Conference Center. The physical plant had a chapel, private room for the wedding party and parents, waiting room while pictures were being taken, a dinning room with a dance floor, separate dessert room. All matters covered. Food was quite good with many options. The dessert room was actually too much. One criticism is that there was too much food. I would have liken less food for less money.
We had to provide the minister which ended in a disaster. Not being from the area, we had to settle for a minister suggested by East Wind. I believe he introduced himself as Father John. he did not follow the script. Bible reading did not take place. The Bride and groom did not say any vows. He said them for them. Those attending stood during the entire service.
We also stayed in the hotel for the evening. Rooms were spacious, comfortable and on site. They were used by the bride party for dressing, etc.
Wonderful wedding, except the minister. Give it my highest recommendation.
