"My coordinator and I planned the most perfect day which reflected my own personal style. The estate is a versitile backdrop for any imagined event from the elegance of the "Gilded Age" mansion, the country charm of the grand front porch and gazebo to the stunning redwood equestrian carriage house doors.
