    "You hear the horror stories of reception halls burning down in the middle of wedding season, but you never think that kind of thing would happen to you. I can tell you from personal experience that freak accidents do happen (my business burned completely to the ground in December 2008), and as a business owner, you should do everything you can to protect yourself and the engaged couples you work with. I HIGHLY encourage all couples hosting their event at our facility to protect themselves and purchase Markel Specialty event insurance, because unfortunately, you can't control everything and sometimes wedding day disasters do occur."
