Featherwinds, Leavenworth Wedding, COMMENT

Jeni said...

Thank you for this wonderful location. We are here for our niece's wedding. Could not have picked a better place. Everything was 5 STAR. The accommodations are the best. The decorating, flowers, cake (mmmmm), foods, reception room, the wedding gazebo, lawns, landscaping, everything was absolutely the best. The wedding coordinators were so wonderful, excellent, job well done. It is obvious you care about what you do and what you have to offer. Your hearts are filled with love and it shows. We will return.

Matt & Jennifer

Thank you!
