Being engaged and planning your wedding is not without questions and concerns. Let us take a moment and answer your most important and most commonly asked questions! Don't see your question listed here? Feel free to fill out our form HERE and expect to receive a response shortly.
CAN I BRING IN OUTSIDE FOOD?
We are all about offering options here at our venue! Although we only offer in-house catering, you may still bring in up to 4 different cultural dishes and special family dishes as long as it's been noted. You must let us know at least 30 days before your wedding. We will gladly keep foods hot or cold and the dishes you bring must be served by our staff.
CAN I REMOVE ITEMS FROM THE PACKAGE?
Much like an all-inclusive hotel or other such package, we include everything for one set price. This doesn't mean that you must use everything in the package. For example, you have a friend who is going to be your DJ as a wedding gift to you. You can choose to either not use our DJ at all or perhaps when your friend is eating dinner, our DJ can still help to cover the music. It's completely up to you. As with any all-inclusive package, removing items will not effect the price.
WHAT ARE THE HOURS OF ACCESS?
Our team arrives early in the day to facilitate set-up for your event, but feel free to come in at your leisure and leave all of that to us! Your venue access time is from 1 PM to 11 PM. Afterwards, our staff will take care of the rest. Set-up and Clean-up time is not deducted from your venue rental time.
WHERE DO GUESTS PARK?
While there is always ample free parking around the area for guests, we also suggest parking at the garage located within one block of our venue. Its completely free on the weekends and guests won't get stuck walking in the rain for miles!
ARE THERE NEARBY HOTELS?
Luckily, we are located central to many great hotels. Nearly across the street from us is the newly built Courtyard Marriott and within 5 minutes is the Port Gardener Inn, right on the Marina, with a beautiful view! There are many other hotels close by, but those are our favorites.
ARE THERE PLACES NEARBY FOR OUTSIDE PHOTOS?
The downtown area features many great pieces of art and beautiful architecture. However, we have some hidden gems just minutes away! We love Grand Avenue Park! Known for its scenic water views, this 5-acre park features landscaped grounds & open green space. We also suggest Forest Park, which offers 197 acres of beautiful wooded trails. Another favorite spot is the nearby Everett Train Station, which features great backgrounds and a Grand Staircase that can be seen in some of our outside photos.
CAN WE BRING IN OUTSIDE DECOR?
Of course! Although our decor package features over 137 unlimited items, and you may not necessarily need to rent or buy any additional decor, you are more than welcome to bring as much decor as you'd like. Every wedding is unique and it's important to make it a celebration of you as a special couple!
DO YOU HAVE A SERVICE CHARGE?
Our staff works on a bonus system. Depending on how you rate us at the end of your event, the staff will be paid accordingly! This ensures that everyone is putting on their best for your very important day.
CAN WE HAVE A BAND OR LIVE MUSIC?
Please do! In addition to our DJ (or instead of) you are more than welcome to bring your own musicians. We have an excellent sound system with Bose speakers. They just have to bring their equipment!
WHAT IS THE VENUE CAPACITY?
Our capacity here is 250 comfortably and up to 300 if necessary (standing room during ceremony and the use of two rooms for dinner). We want to make sure your guests (and servers!) have plenty of room to move around comfortably. The fact that we have a total of 7 rooms allows for much more movement than most venues with only one or two rooms.
