“I just wanted to say how happy I am with how everything turned out for my wedding. You & all the staff at Rowena’s Inn made my day absolutely perfect! All my guests raved about how beautiful everything was and about how delicious the food was. I felt so calm and stress free all day. There is nothing I would change about the day. Thank you so much!”
Just wanted to let you know we had the best time, and were told by our guests that it was one of the best weddings they’ve been to. The food was amazing!! I wish I was able to eat it all. Haha, I was so sad about the cinnamon nachos. Thank you for all the planning and help the day of! It went so smoothly, couldn’t have asked for a better day. Even the sun came out!”
