When in the year can I have an outdoor ceremony?

Your ceremony will take place in the courtyard or the ballroom.

Typically, courtyard ceremonies take place May 1st through October 31st, depending on the weather. Indoor ballroom ceremonies take place from November 1st through April 30th.


If you are planning an outdoor ceremony, we will make a weather call by 9am on the morning of your event. This is the deciding factor whether to move the ceremony into the ballroom or leave it outside.


Your guests will be most comfortable when the weather is above 50 degrees.
