2021 Concours D' Elegance

This venue was transformed into one of the most unique places I have had the pleasure to experience

I had the privilege to attend an event this past weekend at a magical place called Inola.

Once driving onto the property, you feel as though you have stepped back in time to a place only read about in novels. This venue was transformed  into one of the most unique places I have had the pleasure to experience a social gathering and celebration. I felt as thought fetes as this one had been been relished here for centuries.

I am intrigued by the fact one day I may call this enchanted place home, I’m looking into purchasing a home lot in Inola.
