Pine Manor is the perfect place for a wedding

Pine Manor is the perfect place for a wedding. At least, that is my belief after my 8-18-12 wedding here. The rest of the day went by as a blur for me, but my memories of being in Rev Pam’s beautiful home and yard, sharing vows with the man I love will be treasured memories for the rest of my life, and its because Rev Pam provided us with such a lovely place and had such attention to detail (I mean, she even went out of her way to get Sugar Free Lemonade for my diabetic mom!!) that NOTHING went wrong on our special day. If you are looking to have a small, intimate wedding then I cannot imagine going anywhere else.
