We are perfectly suited to host small to medium family style weddings. The grounds provide a collection of different venues for rehearsal dinners, wedding reception and other events. All locales are designed for outdoor ceremonies and the gazebo has been the site of many ceremonies. Our March-November weather offers a variety of dates and settings to make the most of your most important day.
The gazebo adorned in floral makes for an absolutely beautiful chapel. Flowering azaleas, hydrangeas and the serene backdrop of Lake Veranda makes for the most picturesque setting. With seating for 100, guests are surrounded by tall historic pines, fabulous landscapes and a memorable view of the bride and groom as they take their vows.
Rates start at only $5,400 for 3 days exclusive use of The Veranda and includes overnight accommodations for 20.
