How far in advance should I book my wedding venue?
Booking your wedding is one of the first things you should do when planning your wedding. This will allow you to speak with other vendors on their availability. Many couples choose to book their weddings so they have 1-2 years to plan the celebration however; we do see couples who book their wedding with less than 1 year to plan.
How many guests can your venue accommodate and is there a minimum requirement?
Generally the minimum guarantee is between 100 and 120 guests but we also offer reception rooms that can seat as little as 50 guests & up to 350 guests.
Are there different rates for peak and off-season dates?
Rates are not only affected by the season but also the time of day and the reception room you select. Off peak months like Jan. through March are more cost effective than months like April through December. As well, AM affairs are less expensive than PM and Twilight (Mid-Day) affairs.
