How much is the fee?
Our fee for the Basic Package is $4,000, and includes the use of the grounds to the South and the West of the main house.  We provide water and electrical hook-up, though we require the rental of a back-up generator.

The Bridal Suite package is an additional $500/$300, and includes everything in the Basic Package, plus access to both or one of the upstairs bedrooms, each with private bath. These rooms can be used the day of the wedding for the bridal party to get ready for the ceremony, and to change into evening-wear for the reception. Some first look photos can be taken in the bedrooms, the main hallway, and the wrap-around staircase.

The First Look package is an additional $250 fee, and includes access to the main entrance to the house including the wrap-around staircase, the Reception Room, the Drawing Room designed by Stanford White, and the Library for first look and family photographs.

Can we have a bonfire?
Yes!  You can have a beautiful bonfire built by our good friend and artist who will source the wood from Rokeby, and will design a one-of-a-kind bonfire for your event.  Alternatively, you may use a portable fire-pit, so long as it has been approved by us.  If there is a state-wide or county-wide fire ban, then no open flame will be permitted.
