Are there additional costs if the ceremony is on-site? Can we have a rehearsal the day before?

If you opt for a ceremony such that we need to ‘turn the room over’ for the reception, there is an additional fee. This ceremony charge enables us to hire extra staff to assist with the transition so that we don’t pull service staff from the event when they are needed to butler hors d’oeuvres and service the bar. The charge varies depending on number of tables and intensity of décor, but typically we can hire three extra people at a rate of $150 each to get the job done.  These staff can also double as coat check/restroom attendants for the rest of the evening.

For rehearsals, we typically allot an hour to rehearse at no additional charge, within normal hours of operation. We ask only that you not cause a disturbance to our event set-up or leave us with much clean-up. If you have a large bridal party and think they might cause such a disturbance, and/or you require more than an hour (from arrival to departure, punctually), please let us know so that we can be prepared, and perhaps arrange an additional fee to cover such a situation.
