We do provide one indoor weather back up space for any wedding events outside in case of weather changes. If you have both the ceremony and reception outside the back-up space will be for both events. We will wait until 10:00 AM the day of the event for you to make a final decision about whether to move inside or stay outside. There is no additional fee for moving your event before this deadline.
We reserve rehearsal space 30 days prior to your wedding at a mutually agreed upon time We cannot guarantee rehearsal space to be in the same areas as the ceremony but will do our best to accommodate this request
