Your celebration is our celebration. While we technically need to stay 6 feet apart, we’re standing right there with you, with specially designed offerings to make sure your small wedding is still your big day. Choose from special rates for small weddings with up to 50 guests or an all-inclusive package for a micro-wedding of up to 20 guests!  For the comfort of all guests, ample space will be available to maintain social distance and all high-touch surfaces and equipment will be disinfected.
