Have you checked out our catering options lately? No? Well, we’ve been dying to tell you all about our wedding packages and give you the details on all our favorite offerings from some of our favorite caterers! Plus, you’ll get all the details on what actually comes in each package.
Keep in mind that the packages we have today are always subject to change as we hand-select even more options for you.
Here is the basic idea. Imagine a gorgeous venue. One where you get to use any area of the venue that you’d like. With no hidden fees to use the spaces of our venue. It’s already decorated with adorable hand-painted signs, saving you time on decor. You’ll get two getting-ready suites. A fully functioning catering kitchen. Tables, chairs and linens for up to 200 guests. We’ve already constructed a hand-made cedar arch and set out the 22 antique church pews for your guests to relax on during the ceremony. The canoe is already floating in the lake, ready for your photo-op, or we can set it up to hold presents and/or other display items.
You’ll even get our basic floral collection included in every package. Overview: flowers for the bride, groom, 6 attendants, 2 sets of parents, 2 sets of grandparents, and even a toss bouquet! And if the options in the basic floral collection aren’t what you always dreamed of, we are happy to customize it! After all, we do have an award-winning florist right here on staff.
And now to the good stuff! Food. There are 4 package types. We’ll summarize them for you. All packages include food service and sweet tea, unsweetened tea, lemonade, and water.
Boathouse – You’re going to start off with breaded chicken breast and add on your choice of delicious sauces. There are also some amazing salad options with this caterer (can you say spinach salad with pecans, pears, gorgonzola and pecan balsamic vinaigrette?). Your choice from a long list sides, and rolls all around. This caterer also offers some fun extras (for an additional charge) like a pie bar, cupcake bar, s’mores bar (perfect for our fireplace down by the lake!), popcorn & boiled peanuts bar, and biscuit bar.
Lakeside – This is your country casual dining option. Think barbecue, potato salad, baked beans (and if you don’t like the sides, there are more options). And you’ll get warm baked cinnamon & sugar apples with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Pass the apples, please.
Willow Tree – With this package you start off with a choice of grilled chicken or flat iron steak (for an additional charge). You’ll get your choice of 2 sides (salads are a side here). It includes rolls and a fresh fruit display. And one other note is that this package does not include lemonade.
Red Canoe – Stay with me here. You start off with 3 different options and lots of add-ons. You’ll get your choice of a grilled buffet, southern buffet or heavy hors d’ oeuvres. This caterer includes a lot of extras like a to-go plate for the bride and groom (trust us, you’ll need it!). And they also offer a lot of fun extras (for an additional charge) like a biscuit bar, s’mores bar (perfect for our fireplace down by the lake!), chocolate fountain, candy buffet and licensed bartending. Also worth noting, this caterer offers canned soft drinks as part of the package.
We hope this quick summary has helped you narrow down your favorite package options. And if they just aren’t suiting your fancy, you can always reserve the venue only, and customize your own wedding experience. The last thing worth noting is that if you do select one of our packages, you’ll pay for the venue, flowers and caterer separately, even though they’re all part of one package.
