Once the big day finally arrives, you, your guests and vendors will have access to the venue at time of your reservation. The venue is already prepped with the seating set, every candle lit, and the background music playing.Upon arriving, your officiant and photographer (if included in your package) as well as your host(s) will greet the couple. This is the perfect time to hand your marriage certificate paperwork to the officiant and they will begin preparing it for after the ceremony. When the bride arrives, she may wait in the bridal lounge. The bridal lounge offers privacy to change into the dress if desired. If your package includes flowers, they will be waiting for you when you arrive at the venue.As your guests arrive, the host will pass out beverages and celebratory "YAY" or "WOO-HOO" flags to wave for the newly married couple. For packages including photography, your photographer will spend a little time capturing the moments before the start of your ceremony.
