“On August 18th 2012 my husband and I got married and celebrated at the Leadership Center. We are very happy with how are day went and the help and support we received from the Leadership Center. Brett and I loved the fact that we could get married and have our reception all in one location and that there was lodging available for our out of town guests. We wanted our day to be more about spending time with friends and family then worrying about set-up, food and all the other little things that pop up. The Leadership Center made this happen for us and went above and beyond to truly make it a special day.”
