Do we need a microphone for ceremonies?
It is recommended to have a microphone for ceremonies. Your DJ or live musicians can usually provide sound equipment for this purpose. There are several power outlets available.
Is there a weather backup plan for outdoor ceremonies?
Yes, we have beautiful indoor options! We will discuss an inclement weather ceremony plan during your final walkthrough. If inclement weather is approaching, we will be in touch the week of the wedding to finalize a decision. While we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your wishes, we have learned it is best to decide as early as possible to alleviate the uncertainty and added stress. We will provide one complimentary reset to accommodate moving inside due to sudden bad weather. Management reserves the right to make a final decision on ceremony location based upon weather conditions and safety.
Where can we take photos?
The interior of our building offers several nice backdrops for portraits. You also have access to our exterior areas including woodland backdrops.
Do I have to use certain vendors? Is there a wedding coordinator requirement?
We have a preferred list of caterers. You may bring your own caterer for a $500 outside catering fee. If you are going to use a caterer that is not on our list, they must be pre-approved and sign a venue agreement.
Clients are required to hire a professional wedding coordinator that has been pre-approved and signs a venue agreement. We will gladly provide our in house Day Of Coordinator for an extra fee. Coordinators must attend the final walk through meeting, rehearsal, and be onsite through the end of the rental period. A seasoned coordinator is an essential part of your vendor team to create a successful wedding day!
You are welcome to hire other vendors to provide additional goods and services. We are happy to provide a list and chat about recommended vendors
