With access to 4 parking lots, we have plenty of on site parking available.



As a mother of two daughters who recently got married, I know how exciting but stressful it can be and that's why we offer a variety of wedding packages.  All packages come with tables & chairs and we will work with your vendors to ensure your day goes smoothly.  To help you save money, you we offer a list of wedding and reception décor for minimal fees (most items $5 and under).  

Packages are offered in 1 day, 2 day or 3 day options.

The all weekend package (Fri/Sat/Sun), includes all wedding & reception décor we have on hand for FREE.  Perfect for couple who wants extra time to decorate/set up on their own. 

Weekday weddings offered at a discounted rate.

Corporate and social events are also available.
