private outdoor wedding ceremony

My partner and I are eloping in a ceremony for just the two of us (plus an officiant and photographer) on the 18. We plan on having a short ceremony in the late afternoon/early evening followed by some photographs. We will be having a larger event for friends and family down the line, but want a private ceremony for just the two of us to begin with. We are looking for a quiet space with an outdoor area for the ceremony. We were wondering if your space might be available that day. We would ideally like to rent it for 2-3 hours.

18th birthday brunch outside

I've been looking for a nice outdoor space to host my 18th Birthday brunch. Considering I will be inviting 28 people and am in need of a green outdoor setting this is perfect for the event. I will have catering delivered, however they are not staying for full service. If possible, I'd like to utilize the 6 ft long table mentioned in the description for the catering. Otherwise, I have no further requests and we will be only in the garden for the entire event except bathroom needs. Please let me know if this is possible

outdoor social for a startup

I hope you are having a good afternoon. We are looking for an outdoor space to host a social for our start up. We likely will have the event catered or have food brought in and will likely have beer and wine. We are a small group. :) Is there any place to stage food? Tables?
