How do I book an appointment to speak with a Wedding Coordinator?

Yes. We only assist in booking the events, set up, and menu planning. A wedding planner will need to be hired to provide décor, direction, and contacting vendors.

Unfortunately, we do not allow any outside catering. We schedule tastings prior to the wedding to ensure your needs are met in every way.
Do I receive a discount on rates for accommodations?
With ten guaranteed rooms or more we are able to create a special rate for our wedding guests.
