Prior to your event, outside food and drink is allowed. Once guests arrive, all food and beverages must be provided through your caterer.

Our events team will meet with you twice prior to your wedding day to discuss table set up, ceremony and reception timeline, and other details of your event as it relates to the venue. They are not responsible for decorating the venue, or booking your vendors. However, they are on-site for each event to help your ceremony and reception run smoothly. Contact our events manager Callie West (email@example.com) with any questions.
