  • You can celebrate indoors and out. The ballroom now has its own stone-paver patio, complete with a white arbor for ceremonies, manicured landscaping around the border, and evening lighting.
  • Generous wedding packages include a 5-hour top-shelf open bar, award-winning cuisine, a selection of wedding cakes, fresh floral centerpieces, and much more.
