 Here is what one mom had to say about her daughter’s wedding:

“My daughter had a vision and the Windmill Island venue and staff made it all possible. They were accommodating and very helpful. It was a beautiful day but even if the weather had not cooperated, I felt very comfortable with their backup plans for an indoor ceremony. Our guests loved the gardens and the "tent" was beautiful. True professionals with a romantic side.”
