Goodstone Inn & Restaurant

“THIS IS WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT. Not just this epic modern romantic tablescape, but the fact we surprised our clients who decided to have an intimate ceremony yesterday and all their wedding vendors came together to give them a taste of their postponed wedding to come! From their flowers, to the linen, the DJ, menu cards, our photogrpaher and videographer all showed! Honestly this was maybe even more special that what was to be this coming Saturday (their original wedding date) and now we get to prolong their excitement a little longer and disinvite ‘Rona as a topic of major conversation next Spring 🤞🏼”
