Our event packages span a 5 or 6 hour event timeline: (typically) one hour for ceremony, and one hour for cocktails followed by a 3 or 4 hour reception. Since we understand your ceremony may not take an hour, we are happy to adjust to fit your ideal schedule.
Our ceremony area is permanently tented to preserve Plan A in every way possible. Your big day shouldn’t feel like a backup plan! Additional adjustments are made by house Staff as needed in times of inclement weather for the comfort of your guests.
