For your wedding with over 40 guests + bride and groom + officiant + photographer + B&B employed staff needed to facilitate makes for a crowded mansion area reception or ceremony. For events of this size a tent and other outdoor elements (dance floors, sound systems, etc) become a necessity. Additionally, the glamping areas need to be avaialble for parking of guest vehicles.
By renting the four mansion guest rooms plus the two glamping spots at the then listed nightly rental fee on the date of and date before your wedding, any other venue rental fees are waived and the glamping spots will be avaiable to the wedding party for RV's or parking.
For no incremental charge, we can provide up to 25 total quality folding chairs plus the amish built mansion chairs (which are required to be kept in the mansion) can provide a net of 50 seating locations in the combined Game room and glass enclosed common area. Four extra folding tables are avaialable from the B&B and can be used to facilitate up a sit down dinner. You should plan for a tent as a weather protected back-up location. However, any of our georgeous outdoor ceremony locations are encouraged. They include on the grounds near the trellis on a slab next to the lighted, fountained pond; under the wedding tree with a view of the bridal walk down the mansion's grand-staircase entry to the wedding walk bridge; or on the open air slab next to the sculpture garden's covered, floating flue, fire pitted gazebo. You can plan one of our outdoor locations for the ceremony and have the tent as a weather required back-up. If the ceremony/reception goes past sunset, incremental lighting may become necessary in certain areas. We have areas well light for after dark, but supplemental lighting either using extension cords from or electrical boxes or via battereries will propably be required. Work with the proprietors to help you get the effects you desire.
