The Front Courtyard

The front courtyard sits comfortably between Marsden Hall and the banquet hall. With strung edison lights, adirondack chairs and a few highboys tables, this scene sets the perfect tone for cocktail hour. After the ceremony guests will mingle outside before entering into the banquet hall for the wedding reception. Did we forget to mention the massive warehouse that sits behind the courtyard and offers the perfect picturesque backdrop? Without a doubt, this is our favorite location on the property.
