It's Your Special Day

Make it Magical

We have lots of options to choose from to make the perfect wedding venue for you. Maybe you want to have a small, intimate wedding in the White Chapel with a boat ride to your waiting reception guests at the boat dock with your inside reception in the Conference Center. Or perhaps you'd like your wedding party to be entirely outside. You can also use a combination of our venues—we can help you make it happen.

Please click on the "Make a Reservation" button below and we can start our conversation about your wedding plans. We will be happy to discuss our options, pricing and logistics with you. You can also see tentative prices using our Build a Quote calculator.
