On-site Ceremonies

Onsite Ceremonies are available upon request. Reception style seating with an aisle is $250. With this option, the hall would be set up as it would be for your reception but space for an aisle would be added. This is becoming a new wedding trend, and is a very convenient option for your guests. You will receive your choice of one of our three complimentary Trellises. Trellises are lit and decorated, but can be modified with your wedding colors, if available.

When you choose to do an onsite ceremony, we ask that you and your wedding party be available to do a complimentary rehearsal some time during the week of your wedding.
