Use of candles--As of 9/25/2017 all candles must be LED--if you have a signed contract prior to this date you may use candles in glass on the tables only.
Music --music volume has to date not been an issue at the lodge. You may use our system, bring in a DJ, or bring in a band.
Vendors--you are free to use any vendor you choose including do-it-yourself option. If you are doing your own catering you must either Barbecue your meat outside or bring it in already cooked. You will need someone in your party to have a food handlers permit and if serving alcohol you will need someone with a liquor certification. We have a prep and warming kitchen only. I have a really good vendor list if you need help in any area.
Alcohol is fine at the lodge--As of 9/25/2-17 You are required to have a bartender for all alcohol. You also need to provide a Certificate of Insurance and a Banquet Permit.

Insurance limits to purchase--Aggregate policy limits of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 general aggregate for bodily injury, death and property damage liability. I recommend a company called The Event Helper www.theeventhelper.com. They do party insurance in all 50 states. It is a very fast and easy process online and you can have them send the certificate directly to the lodge.
Personal property set-up at the lodge--Your Certificate of Insurance does not cover your personal items such as rings, wedding dresses, etc. These would be covered under your own homeowners insurance.
Dogs in wedding party--We do allow dogs to be in the wedding party. You will be responsible for any damage done by your pet.
