Timelines.

Sometimes it’s nice to see a sample schedule now to get a feel for how things might look on your wedding day! Here’s two sample schedules that will give you a great starting place for planning your schedule.

And then you’ll definitely want to touch base with all your vendors to make tweaks here and there based on their recommendations as these are only recommendations to get the ball rolling.

Please note, that while these are recommended times we do not allow ceremonies to begin any earlier than 4:30pm. We recommend 5pm to best serve your guests and to align best with our bar packages which include 5 hours of service. This means if your ceremony is off site you can start cocktail hour no earlier than 5:30pm.
