Our all-inclusive wedding ceremony with a cake and beverage mini reception and professional photography!

You choose the decorations you’d like, the music you’d like, and the flavor and style of your cake.  Everything is customized just for you.   Two hours of professional photography are also included with all photos professionally edited.

You’ll have two separate dressing room areas; each with its own bathroom.  Your guests and wedding party, if any, are also welcome to use the dressing rooms.

   We will custom decorate your arbor in your choice of any of our reusable flowers, greenery, and/or other decor.  We provide seating for your guests and custom music is provided for your ceremony (you choose the music).  If you bring a guestbook or ceremony decor, we’ll set things up for you.   We will plan these things together prior to your wedding.
 Our minister with vows customized as you’d like them are provided as well as witnesses for your ceremony.  You may also bring your own witnesses.  

   Our photographer will start photos before the wedding ceremony starts to include photos of each of you getting ready and the details of the wedding as well as photos throughout the ceremony, cake cutting, posed photos of you and your families, and dancing (if you have a first dance and/or other dances such as father/daughter dance).    We also walk around the property and take advantage of the gorgeous backdrop to capture memories of the two of you while your guests enjoy their cake, beverages, and music. (See photo links, below)

  • 3 hours of time for you to get ready, have your ceremony, and have your mini reception.
  • Separate dressing areas for couple to dress prior to ceremony
  • Services of interdenominational minister with vows customized with you (also ok to bring your own minister)
  • Professional sound system for your ceremony music and the time following. We will coordinate your music choices with you via our wedding planning checklist so you have the music you want.   Many couples include a “first dance” together and sometimes other dances such as a father/daughter dance.
