Rates & Policies

On your wedding day, The Conferences and Events Department will have an event manager on site to ensure the success of your wedding. The event manager will help with the setting up of the guest book, favors, etc. and will be present until the end of your reception. While the event manager will be at the Pavilion finishing up last minute details, it is typically the Justice of Peace or minister who will help with the ceremony line up on the day of the wedding and conducts a rehearsal for you and the bridal party.
