Gazebo and BBQ – $450.00
A lovely site for a wedding!    In past years, brides have set up folding chairs theatre style at the bottom of the steps for the ceremony, then move them to rented 8’ round tables set up on the lawn area.  A more informal affair could utilize the existing 10’ tables (approximately 8 – each seating between 10 and 12 people) surrounding the Gazebo.  The Gazebo is a great location to set up the DJ/band/ music.  There are electrical outlets located under the wrap around benches.  Clear twinkle lights surround the roof of the Gazebo.
