Q. How many guests can fit comfortably in the ballroom?
We have hosted weddings ranging from 50 guests up to 200 guests. For the more intimate weddings we are able to utilize the ballroom a little differently.(ie, using one section for cocktail hour and the other two sections as reception space). For a larger wedding, we would utilize the pre-function and boardrooms for cocktail hour and the entire ballroom for reception space. The maximum size for comfort would be 200.
Q. Where do ceremonies take place? What can we do to create an intimate ceremony space?
Depending on the guest count, ceremonies would take place in one or two sections of the ballroom. With the right lighting and backdrop, you can create beautiful sanctuary for your ceremony. We are able to dim the lights and add a few of our screens to create a backdrop. We are also able to recommend a few rental companies if you are looking to rent additional pipe and drape to create a more dramatic look.
Q. How many guests can sit at a table? What type of chairs and linens are included?
Depending on the guest count, we will provide 60" rounds, 72" rounds, or a combination of both. 60" rounds can accommodate 8-10 guests and 72"rounds can accommodate 10-12 guests. Our wedding packages include full length table cloths in white, ivory, chocolate brown, or black and a wide selection of napkin colors.
