Things we love:
There is a chic bridal salon right in the estate which makes for the perfect place to get ready.
The boathouse chapel looks like a beautiful barn and is the perfect combination of a beach and rustic setting. The gorgeous stone mantle offers a focal point that you can decorate as you’d like. The side walls/doors can be left open on a summer day and the photo opportunities are endless. There is a 2nd level in the barn with more seating and also a perfect viewpoint for photos.
The estate rooms are charming, each room with a different rustic touch.
The ballroom with the wood ceiling and huge walls of windows allows your guests to really enjoy the beautiful views.
The views from the master suite ahhh!!! You can’t beat waking up on your first morning as husband and wife with those views!
Similar to Mallard, your after party can be held right at the venue.
Although it is owned by the same group and just down the street from Mallard, the catering here is done by Merri-Makers.
