Magical Woodland Wedding

Carrie & Frankie were wonderful and made our wedding flow just how we wanted it to! We knew from the first moment we spoke with them and saw the venue that we had to have our wedding at Bower in the Woods! Carrie & Frankie are so easy to talk to, it feels as though we have known them for years! They went above and beyond in every aspect and we will be sure to use them for future events! If you are looking for an intimate woodland wedding, this is the place to do it!
