Can I arrive early to set-up decorations?

How many hours does the rental fee reserve the spaces? Are there any charges if we exceed the allotted hours?
The amount of time that you will have access to the facility is dependent upon the package you select. Typically the time frame ranges between 4-5 hours. If you desire more hours or exceed the amount of hours you have selected there is an hourly fee.

What are the entertainment options for your reception hall?
We have a stage if you would like to bring in a band or string quartet. You are also welcome to bring in a DJ or use our CD Stereo system with Bose speakers to provide the music for your event.
Does your package include the Ministers/Officiant?
We realize that everyone has a different faith and/or belief, therefore our bridal couples have the option to use the minister/officiant of their choice or select for a list of ministers/officiants we provide.
Am I required to work only with Special Moments vendors?
We have a list of preferred vendors who have worked with Special Moments bridal clients; however, you are free to work with any vendor you choose. Outside caterers, bartenders, and any person using a ladder on the property, such as florists and lighting companies, MUST provide the Special Moments office with proof of liability insurance naming Special Moments as the additional insured no later than 45 days prior to the event.
