Our Reception area was designed with your party in mind!
Our unique high peak tent is over 1100 square feet and is great for both shade on sunny days and protection on rainy days. Dancing typically happens in the center of the tent with tables surrounding for an outdoor dining and dancing experience that you can only find at the 1812 Hitching Post!
The tent adjoins the house for a seamless indoor/outdoor party experience. Your guests will have full access to all the public areas of the main house including the four rest rooms. Inside the double doors are the bar/beverage area, your cake display, a gift table, and other party tables such as a candy bar.
In the evening, tiki torches, twinkle lights, and coach lights set the mood in the gardens surrounding the Reception area.
We’ll have a fire in the fire pit for your guests to roast marshmallows and to make S’mores, if you’d like. The fountain to the north splashes pleasantly and a fire may be burning inside in the fireplaces if the evening is cool.
Sides of the tent can be closed and the tent can be heated. The 1812 Hitching Post will provide everything needed for a comfortable and memorable wedding reception. Imagine how beautiful YOUR wedding will be!
