We can refer you to a group of high quality, professional vendors including a caterer, florist, photographer, wedding cake baker, wedding director and DJ
thus helping to reduce the worry, stress and time needed to plan your wedding.
You can use all of our vendors, some of our vendors or none. Although these vendors have standard package offerings, they will work with you to adjust
their offerings as desired based upon your budget. We discuss this with you in detail after your tour of our venue. You would sign separate contracts with
each of these vendors.
Please note that only Highgate can provide alcohol for your reception.
We have six bedrooms that can be rented as well so that the wedding weekend can be enjoyed fully.
