Our Guests Rave About Decor, Food, Drinks, and Service

Our South Branch coordinator was a dream to work with from the very beginning. She was there for us every step of the way and was so attentive, organized and extremely accommodating. Our guests are still raving about the decor, food, drinks and service. We wouldn’t change a thing about our amazing day, and we thank the team at South Branch for making it happen! HIGHLY recommended!
