Lunch / Dinner Meal
Our farm-to-table restaurant will serve a delicious buffet style of grilled chicken breast served with rosemary cream sauce, new red potatoes with butter and parsley, fresh-picked, seasonable vegetable, side salad, non-alcoholic beverages and decorated wedding cupcakes, adorned in your wedding color(s). (A large selection of menu upgrade options, such as grilled rib-eye and beef tenderloin, grilled salmon, and additional appetizers, side items and desserts are available.)
Waterfall and Lighting
Two streams of water join to create one, symbolizing the unity of two individuals coming together in marriage. Rising to a height of seventy feet, our beautiful cascading waterfall is unlike anything you will find. As the backdrop to your ceremony, your guests will be mesmerized. When night falls, your choice of white or colored up-lighting illuminates the rock cliffs and waterfall for a stunningly gorgeous view.
We partner with numerous officiants in the greater Charlotte area. Contact us to find one that fits your style.
Our photographer will shoot the wedding, for a total of three hours of photography, and provide digital copies of your photos.
We will provide the groom boutonniere and bridal bouquet with colorful, fresh flowers. (Additional flowers for bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents and grandparents, ceremony flowers, and centerpieces are available for an additional fee.)
