Wedding Ceremony & Reception in Same Location

With just one call you can easily plan both your wedding and reception.

Did you know that 39% of the weddings we hosted in 2018 had both their ceremony and reception at one of our beautifully decorated venues?

  • Set your date with just one phone call — no juggling of schedules to see what dates are open.
  • Guests and Bridal Party only need to travel to one location — a great option if concerned about the weather.
  • No need for extra expenses such as additional flowers or limo services.
  • Easy one time parking for guests and bridal party.
  • Your choice of officiant (we can also provide several recommendations).
  • No restrictions on your choice of music, dress, or ceremony.
  • Keep all of your items (change of dress, makeup, shoes, etc.) in your private bridal room throughout the day.
  • Plus, all of your guests can enjoy the reception while you are taking photos.
