    About Us

    Celebrate your special day in a relaxed and lovely outdoor setting where we take care of all the delightful details so you can enjoy every moment!

    Imagine flowing from the charming ceremony decks after saying, "I do," to the reception tables for a delicious, family style dinner; then to the rustic, indoor chapel for your first dance, cake cutting and finally, to the micro bar for drinks by the fire.

    Let us show you the enchanting possibilities of a beautifully intimate, full service and totally affordable wedding. It's what we love to do.

    DIY Package  

    Our outdoor space is lovely with lights in the trees, potted flowers everywhere and decks with a                                    ceremony back drop that all make for a beautiful event and pictures-especially when you add your                                  personal decorating style.  You’ll probably only need an hour for a quiet wedding with a few of your                          family and friends, but you should estimate 3-4 hours for a wedding any larger than that.
