The rental fee includes chairs and tables (inside) and chairs (outside) arranged to your specifications. Also included in your rental fee is access to the gardens for a ceremony rehearsal. Because ceremony rehearsals generally take place on Friday, please note that we close at 5pm on Fridays. The rental fee also waives the regular cost of admission for up to 150 guests.
