Welcome to Your Dream Wedding

How long is the ceremony traditionally?

It will depend upon your officiant.Typically, it ranges from 10 to 25 minutes.

Do you have a fee to use the space for a ceremony?

Yes, we charge a ceremony fee. It will vary by your needs of rentals ex: chairs, arbor, etc.

Can we arrive early to set up?

Yes, we do allow early access for event set-up. Typically, it can be available up to 3 hours prior but that is a case-by-case basis.

Is there a rain plan for the outdoor ceremony?

We have multiple rain plans that we can implement, if necessary. Depending upon your size we would use The Venue and then flip it shortly after for your reception or our Lodge. Another option is to rent a tent to use over the outdoor space. This would result in an additional charge if we have to rent a tent.

Do you have a standard floor plan for the ceremony and reception?

Yes, we do. Please see attached floor plans. We can vary from this but any additional tables and chairs would result in an additional charge.
