You are in charge of arranging for the officiant (if you have your ceremony here), caterer, cake, music, flowers and the photographer. We offer a referral list of outside vendors we have worked with in the past, and who are familiar with our facility. With the exception of your caterer, you do not have to select vendors from our list, however other vendors may be required to provide proof of licensing and insurance.
You can work with an outside vendor if you wish to rent specialty linens or other décor to enhance our beautiful rooms. Due to the historic nature of our building there are some restrictions and guidelines as to how décor can be hung; taping, nailing, pinning or stapling of any items to our walls is prohibited. Your Event Planner will guide you on what is acceptable.
The room rental includes five hours of facility use. In addition, you may access the rooms up to 90 minutes prior to your event to accommodate deliveries and décor. If you need additional time this can be discussed with your Event Planner, and may be available for a fee.
All food must be provided by one of our approved caterers. Our ABC license does not allow for any outside liquor to be brought in, but we have a full-service bar that is available for your reception. Wine or champagne may be brought in with the payment of a corkage fee. Click here for our list of top rated caterers to perfectly cater your wedding.
