"Everything turned out fantastic! Sarah and Josh's day was perfect. It was the kind of day that a Father dreams of for his daughter. Having the reception at the Legacy could not have been better… I would recommend the Legacy to anyone who is looking for that "Special" place to make a wedding day complete."

Cragun's terrific facility made for a memorable time attending a wedding reception there. Staff was extremely helpful with whatever need came up throughout our time at Craguns. Thank you!"
