"I felt a peace wash over me"

When I drove up to Half Moon Empire, I was immediately impressed by the century old oak trees. They’re truly majestic! It’s hard to describe the feeling I felt walking around Half Moon Empire, but I felt a peace wash over me and could envision our families coming together here. I’ll be honest it was hard for me to drive away. I enjoyed every second of my time at this beautiful property!
