The Historic Gardens provide an ideal setting for your wedding. Our fee structure is flexible, based on the size of the wedding and any special requirements. Your wedding fee has the added benefit of providing all your wedding guests with full visitor privileges at the Historic Gardens while they are here. They may wander the Gardens either before or after the wedding at their leisure.
In addition to providing an unparalleled location for your special day, and access for all your guests,the Historic Gardens will provide the following services for your wedding fee (after these basic services, fees for additional services may be negotiated):
Wedding Ceremony (2013):
Booking Fee: $100 (non-refundable)
Plus Guest Fee: 1-150 guests -- $5 per person
More than 150 guests: $750 flat fee
The booking Fee of $100 is payable at the time of booking and is non-refundable.
Payment of the Guest Fee is required prior to the wedding ceremony, either at the rehearsal or earlier if you prefer. This fee is refundable under most circumstances.
If the wedding is cancelled or moved to a different location (off site), we require notification at least 3 hours before the wedding time. If notice is not received at least 3 hours prior to the wedding, you will be responsible for the direct costs incurred for staffing or other unavoidable expenses.
