"Throughout the entire wedding planning process, we found the IMU staff to be incredibly accommodating, responsive, and creative. One of the best parts about having our wedding at the IMU was the convenience of having everything in one place. To have the wedding, reception, picture locations, and hotel all in one place allowed us to relax and enjoy our time with family and friends."
