outdoor wedding proposal

I am one of the marriage proposal planners. I have a client that is looking for a beautiful outdoor space to propose on the 5th around sunset time. Is your space available for that date? Do you have any decor restrictions for the space?

outdoor bday lunch / dinner party

I love your space! I wanted to host my bday lunch/dinner party in the space. We are using this event to raise money for a community garden. We plan on cooking onsite and using the kitchen space would be great. Not sure if you have an outdoor space (parking lot or something). We would also bring a grill to use outside if that is permitted.

outdoor rehearsal dinner with a pool

My fiancé and I are looking for a space for our rehearsal dinner. We want somewhere with outdoor space, and your place is absolutely fabulous! I wasn't thinking I wanted a place with a pool, but now that I see yours, I am wondering if we could USE the pool during the event, or if it's just for ambiance! I don't know if that's an option, but I thought I would ask. :)
