Do you allow outside caterers?
Due to our health code policy, we must provide all of the food and beverage for our hosted events with the exception for wedding cakes or wine. With the wine, a corkage fee will be applied for each bottle. Both accommodations require approval from the Director of Catering.
Can your Wedding Packages be modified?
Yes, we structure the packages to include amenities that most weddings ask for. We do this to eliminate the legwork in tracking down outside vendors, as well as the difficulty in trying to figure out the per person prices by adding together all of the amenities. Should you not require services or amenities, we’ll simply remove the item, which will lower the price. For instance, if you’ve already hired a disc jockey or cake maker, we’ll eliminate the service lowering your price. Keep in mind though, your stress level and peace of mind will be better in being assured that you have a trusted vendor that’s also familiar with the facility.
Can we create customized packages?
Yes. Our Executive Chef and Sous Chef have more than 50 years of experience combined between the two of them, and can custom make different preferences or ethnic cuisines. In addition, should you not see pricing to fit your budget, please don’t hesitate to ask us to tailor a package to fit your target dollar amount.
How long can our event use the facilities?
You’ll receive five and a half hours for a ceremony and reception, or five hours for a reception only. You may extend the time allotment if arranged outside of five days from the wedding day. A fee of $2 per guest (Total Guest Count) will be assessed for every additional half hour.
Is there a bridal changing room?
Two and a half hours prior to the function, the large Ladies bathroom on premises will be reserved for the bride and her bridal party. Our staff supplies water and champagne in the room, in addition to room décor. It’s a great room to change and add final touches to your appearance, but not the best for long durations of time for hair and make-up.
Can we bring in candles?
Yes. The only stipulation is that our county fire code requires the candles to be enclosed on the sides and base with some type of protection, most commonly glass. We don’t allow any candles with an open flame without protection, except for the unity candle presentation on the ceremony site with management approval.
Do you recommend a unity candle for the ceremony?
We recommend the newer “Sand Ceremony” trend which offers the same symbolism. It’s a lot like the unity candle service, except that colored sand is used to avoid wind or flame issues that commonly come up by using candles outside.
Do you offer transportation between sites?
We shuttle all of the guests to and from the ceremony site. We do ask that on the invitation, for your guest arrival time, you put 30 minutes ahead of the actual time you would like the ceremony to begin. This gives us the time to shuttle all of the guests out to the ceremony site.
Can we choose more than one entree choice for guests?
Yes. You may offer your guests two to three different choices in their invitation. In doing so, we do require food identification for each guest’s food choice. This can simply be done by placing name cards with the guest’s food choice on the entry table. You can represent the food choice with specific colors, symbols or text. This prevents the guest from changing their minds on the day of the event, there-by throwing off the counts. From the entry table, the guest takes their card to their seat. It serves as a way to reserve their seat, in addition to providing our staff with guidance in who orders what. In the invitation, make the choice descriptions very generic. For example, instead of writing “Marinated Filet Mignon with a Cabernet Demi” simply write “Beef.” Other generic verbiage like fish, chicken, or vegetarian enables you to change your mind on the food choice should you like, without having to worry about informing the guests of the change. Should you like to avoid this altogether, but would still like to offer a choice, please ask us about combination plate entrée options.
What decor is standard?
You’ll have a choice of an underlay linen/color that goes down to the floor, an overlay linen/color that goes halfway down to the ground, and the napkin color choice. In addition to the flatware and china that we provide, you’re welcome to use our house mirrors as a base to your centerpiece. They’re one foot in diameter and are round. Please ask should you like to see the mirror.
Can we take photos at the Club before the start of our event?
Yes. You may come on premises up to three hours prior to the ceremony to begin pictures.
How early can we access the site to set up prior to the event?
You may come in up to two and a half hours prior to the ceremony. At this point, tables, chairs, and linen will be in place.
Do you recommend a seating chart?
Generally, yes. This not only prevents open chairs from depleting seating capacity, but also serves as guidance to your guests on where to go. Assigning specific seats is not necessary but general table numbers is recommended.
