surprise marriage proposal event

I am looking to do a surprise marriage proposal event hoping to use your screening facility - I.e. projector and audio system. Could it provide cinematic experience? Also would this be already included in the rate? I have few friends who will help me to decorate the place prior to my partners arrival - do you think your space would be ideal for this?

ceremony to celebrate wedding vows

My fiancé and I are working on hosting a small, informal morning ceremony/party and brunch to celebrate our wedding vows on this day. It should be a very small, intimate event with just family and the closest friends. We'd love it to be outdoors with great food and some light music. Do you think this could be accommodated here? I saw some great rustic outdoor furniture in some of the catering pictures in the listing. Is that on-site already, or is that from the caterers?

seminar discussions

I am interested in renting your space to host seminar discussions about 1-2 times a month. I like the area with folding chairs and carpet so I believe that's I where I would have my guests sit and talk about various topics. It would occur on Saturdays only. I would serve mimosas only for this meeting as a celebration. It would be my way of thanking my guests for coming out and supporting my event. Other meetings will not have alcoholic beverages served.
