Weddings at the Rock Cottage Gardens
We do many wedding ceremonies, receptions and vow renewals in our our Gardener's Chapel, either as part of the Elopement Package Special, a quick "Get it Done" or customized celebration to include a full catered hot/cold buffet offerings in the main house. Whether it's a simple and quiet wedding with just the Bride and Groom or and outside garden celebration withup to 20 people, we are happy to include your family & friends for inside our outside events. We're willing to customize your event to your style and budget. Check out our receptions and packages/specials pages for additional pictures and information.
With baking experience and wedding cake design and catering since 1973, we’ll work with you to make your celebration delightful and affordable. We want every couple to get the most value for their dollar and to have the best possible memories of their special day. We have hundreds of pictures of cakes previously made for very happy brides to choose from or bring us a picture of what you want your cake to look like and we’ll recreate it to your specifications and budget. Please see our bakery page for more information on sized, flavors and colors.
Our chapel will seat up to 14 people with additional outside seating for up 20 people on garden grounds weather permitting. The gardens make a perfect place for your guests to mingle, visit and enjoy the celebration events of your special day. Our chapel is perfect for a small wedding and our patios and floral covered arbors make the perfect setting for a larger outside ceremony. Cake and punch outside in the gardens is a lovely way to wrap up the occasion!
Weddings and ceremonies for nonlodging guests are conducted between 12 and 7 pm to respect the time of our lodging guests. Attending children must be closely monitored. Nonlodging guests can arrive for the wedding ceremony and reception up to 15 minutes prior to the ceremony - unfortunately, we cannot manage all the needs of guests arriving too early for a ceremony. Although we have tried to accomodate requests in the past, we do not have adequate changing facilities for getting ready at this location for non lodging guests, we suggest everyone arrive dressed and "ready to go".
