Services We Provide We provide the facility for your event. See below for the space available outside and in the tent. We also provide round tables and white chairs for your ceremony and black chairs for your reception under the tent. The tent is on concrete, which is great for wherever you'd like your dance floor.
There are many places on the grounds for ceremonies. You can pick an area that fits your wedding style. Some of the popular places are in front of the house, on the Spring House, the Meadow, the Pergola, and the Water Porch. We also have a tent for your reception and it is on cement with attached restrooms and can facilitate up to 250 people.

Sparkler Send-off $150 We provide 36" sparklers that burn for about 3 1/2 minutes to give you plenty of time to get fun pictures! We provide a sign for your gift table area that tells your guests what time the sparkler send-off will be. Then we coordinate with your DJ to announce the send off, pull up your "get away" car, give everyone a sparkler, have them line up in the best spot, light all of the sparklers with torches, and direct the bride and groom when to walk through the sparklers with ideas on where to stop for picture opportunities. After you've gotten some great pictures we then collect all of the burnt sparklers, and dispose of them so no one gets hurt.
Day-of Coordinator $350 By utilizing this service you really can not worry about the little details on your wedding day! You are still planning your event, we are just helping execute it! Each event is unique, and we tailor what we need to do to suit your event, but some of the things we do would be to pin on boutineers and corsages, make sure unity ceremony items are in place, help the wedding party line up for processional, cue wedding party and musicians during the processional, make sure candles are lit, gifts get to the gift table, coordinate with the photographer for pictures, coordinate with the DJ for the wedding party announcement into the reception, coordinate with the DJ/caterer the releasing of tables for dinner, coordinate as necessary the flow of the reception for the special dances and other reception activities. We also have available various "fixes" for dresses or tuxes that may not fit quite right!
Tent Heaters $300 Plan on using the tent heaters if your event is in October; if you don't need it, the rental fee will be returned to you. We provide two heaters which allows for the tent to be heated evenly. The heaters are on a thermostat-just like your furnace at home! For inquiring minds, they are propane tent heaters.
We require a security deposit of $300 that may be returned to you after your event. Usually it is all returned unless additional hours were used, or the rules of the estate were broken.
If the event is on a holiday weekend, (Memorial day, Independence day, Labor day) there is an additional $200 charge.
To reserve a date, we require $1,000 at booking, which is non-refundable. The balance is due one week before your scheduled event. We also finalize the placement of tables and chairs for your event and go over your timeline and details. Contact us to determine availability for your event.
Vendors You are free to choose any vendor you like-we do require a professional caterer and bartender. However, if you'd like a recommendation for vendors, see our Vendor Information page.
