Testimonial from our February Couple:

Hi, thanks Marie,
I would like to thank you for sharing the Westby House with us for our ceremony. You made it seem effortless. All we did was call you and you took care of the rest of the details. Being a second wedding for both of us, we wanted to keep it simple, with a few family friends but also wanted it very classy. We definitely accomplished this by having it at the Westby House. It was very intimate and personal and we received many compliments on the beauty of the ceremony. Thank you for working with us, especially when we had to change the date! It was truly beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to hold our special day. Thanks again.
-Ann and Irwin Shattuck
