Had my wedding at BW this past Saturday & in the past my family has had several functions with them. I told the staff personally at the end of my function that we keep coming back to them for their EXCELLENT service. & they most certainly did not disappoint. Love the staff & their services. Will definitely continue to keep having functions with them in the future!
