Thank you for considering the 1812 Hitching Post for your wedding. You will be so thrilled with all we can do for you to make your wedding day be the most it can be! One of the best things you get with ALL packages is our almost 20 years of experience. We set up EVERYTHING for you so you and your family do not have to work on your wedding day.
We have two specially priced “bundled” packages with photography included. If either of these are close to what you want, we can make adjustments so you have exactly what you need. We also have a base package that you can use to design your own celebration. Please schedule a personal consultation with us so we can help give you exactly what you envision!
Most people book their weddings with the minimum number of people they expect and then they add on additional people, if any, a month before the wedding when they have received responses to their invitations and know how many of those invited are coming. If you are sending out invitations for 75 people, for example, you can book for 50 and then add on the exact number of people who say “yes” to your invitations just a month before your wedding.
The initial deposit to book your date for these packages is just $500. We then divide the balance of your contracted amount into monthly payments that are due the same date of each month as your wedding date. The final payment, along with payment for additional guests, if any, is due a month before your wedding. It doesn’t get any easier! Even taxes are included!
We send you a checklist for planning; you only have to contact one person (your 1812 Hitching Post wedding coordinator) about everything provided by our venue for your wedding from the decorations you want, your food and cake choices, your reception and ceremony music, and more. You can’t have a more relaxing and enjoyable wedding experience!
All weddings held in the evening will have outdoor lighting to include twinkle lights and bistro or Edison globe tent lights. The fire pit and tiki torches are available weather permitting.
We offer a 10% military discount on any of our packages when you also have our catering included. You are eligible for the military discount if either member of the couple has EVER served in the military. We also offer a 10% teacher and social worker discount. This discount also applies to early educators. One service discount per event.
There is an additional 5% discount available for payment in full of your wedding contract (if wedding is more than 4 months out and for minimum number of guests you expect – all packages) at the time of booking.
The Once-in-a-Lifetime package was designed for the couple who want to “show up and get married” with the best of all we offer! You will have exclusive use of the property on your wedding day; no other wedding will be held that day. This package includes your DJ, wedding cake, premium dessert, appetizers, entrees and sides, tables, chairs, china, linens, bartender, wedding planning and direction, and premium decorations including centerpieces, sparklers, and more! The rehearsal and rehearsal dinner time are included as well as two nights and the wedding day at the Willow Cottage. Bring your license, clothes, rings, flowers, alcohol, and guests and you’ll have a complete wedding! This package is designed for Saturdays, only. This is like pushing the “Easy” button for your wedding; even taxes are included!
*This package may be booked with or without Taylor Cline Photography.
“We Do” Package
Our “We Do” Wedding celebrations can be held on any weekday, Saturday, or Sunday in-season. This package includes complete ceremony with minister, DJ, and decor as well as reception DJ, wedding cake, catering with BBQ pork and chicken plus salad bar and sides (or may substitute for 2 entrees and 4 sides), professional photography of the entire event by Wendy Waldron, wedding planning and direction, tables, chairs, linens, signs, sparklers, and more! Pulled pork BBQ is our specialty; it’s smoked on site and served up hot and juicy!
*You may remove the included photography from this package if you have a preferred photographer.
“Simply Sweet” Package
Our “Simply Sweet” package is designed for the couple who wants a “low-key” wedding with wonderful food, great photography, DJ, decorations, and wedding cake. This is a complete wedding at a budget price. You can start with this package and add on, too!
We also have a “Base” package which starts with the venue with tables, chairs, linens, staff services, DJ, and ceremony decor and you add on everything else needed through us or via your own vendors/family.
