Our Simply Wed weddings give you 2 hours or 4 hours exclusive use of the venue. Once your wedding date and time is secured, we will share a more detailed timeline. If you selected a 4 hour time slot, you will have the option to add-on up to 2 additional hours for a total of 6 hours. Please note: the additional hours will be added before for the lunch time slot and after for the dinner time slot.

Can we do a first look?

Absolutely! We strongly encourage doing a first look and there will be time for you and your fiancé/e to do a first look before your wedding ceremony.
