The outdoor ceremony space is on the other side of the main parking lot in the grassy area/green space. The ceremony arch is in view in the photos. The tree-lined space makes for a perfect location for your family and bridal party portraits. You can expect a lot of green colors with the grass and trees during the Spring and Summer.
