Pricing

Upfront Cost: We're different. Many venues will give you a starting price, but we want you to have the final, total, upfront cost, with no hidden fees, and we feel as though a face to face meeting is the best way to do so. For that reason, you won't find any definitive pricing on our website. We want to meet you; to see what your vision is, to see what all we can provide for you, and to make sure we're the right fit for you.

Pricing Variations and Range: The average wedding cost for Jackson County is $20,000. We have hosted weddings ranging anywhere from $3,000-$20,000. The biggest factor that will affect the price of your wedding is your guest list. Pricing does vary, so tell us more about your event! We can work with almost any budget, and can do anything from sweet and simple to an extravagant production, based on your needs and wishes. Send us an information request and set up a tour to come out and create a customized estimate specific to your event. We do offer payment plans, and different options for deposits to hold your date.

Discounts: We always offer built-in discounts for off-season and non-Saturday dates. Contact us today to see if we have your date available!
