    Your questions, answered right now.

  • How much will my wedding cost?

    Many factors go into determining the cost of your wedding: The day of the week, the number of guests, what you would like included and even the season of the year! If you’re planning a wedding on a budget, please let us know what that budget is, and we can make a recommendation on how you can make your wedding work within that budget.

  • Can I get an estimate for 100 people?

    Our Saturday wedding package, the Signature Package,  including the venue, open bar, wedding cake and dinner, starts at $62/person. So with tax and gratuity, your reception would cost about $8,000 for 100 people, as an example. Additional all-inclusive packages are offered, so you may choose to upgrade the Signature Package, and that will increase the cost of your event. In general, you can have a wedding here for $6,000-$20,000 and up, depending on your guest count, what’s included and any discounts that are based on the day of the week or month of the year. The best way to get a quote for your wedding, is to schedule a consultation, so we can learn more about your wedding needs.
