Experience Was Amazing !
The space will exceed your expectations. It is exactly as pictured and better. Matt was extremely helpful in the booking process. I will definitely be booking with him again.
I have been wanting to shoot in this space for a while now and it did not disappoint. The place was beautiful and and so well curated. I look forward to shooting here again.
Wonderful words, thanks for the kind review!

LOVE THIS SPACE!!! EXCELLENT LOCATION
Thankyou was a wonderful day. Space was bright and cozy. Looking forward to welcoming you back to the teahouse. <3
Space is pretty much identical to the photos. Host is really easy and simple to work with. Heads up that the space is sensitive - be gentle with walking around (take your shoes off)
Everything went smoothly - great space, lots of lovely greenery and interesting furniture pieces! Love the swing.
I rented this space for three hours and I had a good time taking photos for my Instagram page. I love the atmosphere that this place brings.
