Thank you for your email. We had the best time ever and apparently so did our guests. Quoted 'One of the best weddings we've been too', and had sooo many compliments on your venue. Majority of the guest had no idea your venue existed, mine you im the first cambodian to venture out of the typical asian resturant and it paid off. Im really glad i went with my gut instinct. Rain or shined everything went better than i imagined how i managed to hide it, still have no idea. And yes we have no problems sharing photos on your facebook page just waiting for the good ones :-). All the best Rob to you and your team. And again thankyou for making our dream wedding possible.
