Most of our couples tell us they can't believe the process was so easy and simple!

Our attendance is less than what the package allows. Does the package price changes?
No, it doesn't. The venue charges the same fee for an attendance range (for example - from 2 to 20). Therefore, there is no discount if you have no guests attending or less attendees than the maximum the venue allows.

Do you book weddings on weekends?
Our weddings are held Monday-Saturday. This is the only venue available on weekends!

The elopement package is available for a 9:00am, 11:30am, 1:00pm, and a 3:30pm ceremony. The Petite wedding is available for a 10:00am and a 4:00pm ceremony. With the exception of the winter months, we only book morning ceremonies at this venue.

Is there a place to change?
The use of the bridal room is ONLY available when you book the Petite Wedding package. If you book the elopement package, you must arrive dressed and ready to start.
