If you still have any questions or comments, please contact us. We will get back to you as soon as possible and address your concerns.

How far in advance can I plan a walk-through?

You can reserve your walk-through up to three months before your wedding.

What does a walk-through include?

When you come to the property, you will meet with the staff and your chosen vendors to discuss details, dates, and expectations for your big day.

When is payment due?

Your payment schedule is outlined in your rental agreement. Our team is happy to send you payment reminders two weeks before your scheduled due date.

What are your hours of operation?

While we have office hours, please contact us to schedule an appointment to tour the property to ensure we can devote our full attention to you.

Can we begin setup the night before?

You can access our property at the start of your contracted event time only.

Can we come back the day after our event to clean up?

Unfortunately, you must take down and clean up your event before your contracted time expires. You are responsible for your own items.

Are we allowed to launch Chinese lanterns?

No, due to the safety protocol you may not launch lanterns. However, a licensed, permitted, and insured professional may set off fireworks.

You may also light sparklers. If you plan on having fireworks at your event, please submit all permits beforehand.

Is there electricity at my event?

Yes, we have electricity within 300 feet of our venue, but you must provide additional extension cords as necessary. All entertainment, bands, and DJs will be given access to 2, 20-amp circuits. All locations have generators, so you will never have to worry about losing power.

Does catering have access to water?

Yes, all vendors will have access to running water and power sources.

What are limitations on pictures?

You do not have exclusive use of the property for pictures. You may, however, ask a staff member to escort you around your contracted venue parameter. Please be courteous of other events and guests that may be on the location the same time as you.

Can cars be left overnight?

Of course. We promote safe driving, but all cars must be picked up by 10am the following morning.

Can we use the reflection pool?

You may put items that are aquatic related in the reflection pool and fountain, but they must be removed promptly after your event is over.

Is there lodging nearby?

Yes. There are several hotels located near our venue that allow you to reserve rooms for discounted rates and room blocking.

Are there any places to host rehearsal dinners?

If Bohemia River Overlook is available, you are able to rent one of sites for your rehearsal dinner. If you are looking for a restaurant, there are several nice locations nearby such as The Wellwood.
