Wedding Weekend Events

"It's over before you know it." How many times have you heard that bridal bit? What's a bride to do?
The solution? Prolong the party!
Take a cue from the latest wedding trend: three-day wedding weekend celebrations. Creative hospitality will make your wedding weekend not only memorable, but an endlessly fascinating trip.

Welcome Party -

If most of your wedding guests are out-of-towners, or if they're just folks you haven't seen in a while, a welcome party is a great way to greet everyone in a relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere. Enjoy a dessert reception in one of our private banquet rooms or mix and mingle over light bites and a game of corn hole on our Riverview Terrace. Be sure to visit our "venues" link for more details regarding our banquet space.

Farewell Brunch -

At the end of the weekend, a post-wedding brunch is a great way to wind down and exchange final good-byes before leaving on your honeymoon. This is the perfect opportunity for newlyweds to thank their guests and spend a bit more time with loved ones who've flown in from all over.
Like most gatherings, the brunch can be as formal or casual as you choose! Whether it be a light continental in the Hospitality Room or a formal breakfast in one of our private banquet rooms, we can ensure it will be the perfect ending to your wedding weekend!
Be sure to visit our "venues" link for more details regarding our banquet space.
