You couldn’t ask for a better rain plan than the one at Chase Court! Indoor ceremonies are fabulous in the ballroom! This is one of three different ways ceremonies can be set up in the ballroom.
The rain plan for outdoor ceremonies can be put into action on the day of your wedding, as close as three hours before the start time.
For indoor ceremonies, the caterer will set up the chairs auditorium-style (no chairs-around-tables neck-twisting!) either:
- In front of the fireplace (very romantic!).
- Centered on the second window of the north wall.
- Centered on the north wall, between the windows.
The choice is yours! Whichever look you choose, the tables will be fully-set and off to one side of the ballroom, out of the way.
The large limestone fireplace adds coziness and warmth, and accessorizes beautifully! The fireplace is gas-fired and can be run at any time for no charge.
