On the most beautiful day in December, surrounded by the sweetest friends and family, Andrea & Raymond took their first steps as husband and wife. Their ceremony included a sweet hymn sung by the groom's sister and brother in law and communion. There was not a dry eye as the two said their vows. After the ceremony, friends and family gathered to enjoy appetizers and yard games before joining the bride and groom for dinner and dancing. Everyone who attended loved the bride and groom's choice of a s'mores bar in lieu of a cake!

"Right from the moment we drove into the archway of trees by the entrance, we knew there was something special about this place! There is a lot to be said about The Grove, but to sum it up, there is no other place we would have felt more cared for, cherished, and secure than at The Grove for our wedding. After our first visit, we immediately knew that this was the place for us. What continued to affirm our decision to commit to The Grove was the ease of communication between us and the owners, Mr. & Mrs. Baldwin. They responded to our multitude of questions about details and logistics with patience and timeliness. On top of that, they were proactive in giving us ideas to make our wedding more seamless and fun. We could tell right from the beginning, that this was not just a business transaction, but that they were genuinely invested in us as a couple and being a part of making the wedding of our dreams come to fruition. Bobbie, our day-of wedding coordinator is absolutely someone you want in your corner. She has such a calming presence that we never felt stressed as we discussed logistics before the wedding and as the wedding itself progressed. Our favorite thing about Bobbie is how she generously offered her advice and suggestions but ultimately affirmed our decisions, making us feel completely confident in the direction we decided to take. I noticed that she did everything in her power to make sure our day went as smoothly as possible. She is very organized and knew the wedding schedule thoroughly but is flexible in adapting to different situations that can come up during a wedding. As a bride, I felt taken care of and was also able to relax and cherish our wedding day knowing that I could trust her ability to coordinate and delegate behind the scenes. We could tell that she cared a great deal for us as a couple and that she was for us the entire time. There is no way we could have had the wedding we had without her!" - Andrea
