There is so much natural light with floor to ceiling windows that creates the dreamiest lighting to say “I do.” With the vaulted ceilings and the gorgeous chandeliers, this all-white ballroom can be transformed to create your vision for your wedding ceremony. 

Poolside Cocktail Hour

Have your guests spend cocktail hour poolside. With string lights reflecting off the pool water, guests will get to enjoy the beautiful area for a few cocktails, day or night. Add cocktail tables or lounge seating for the guests to sit back and relax before entering the reception area. For a cocktail hour on cooler nights, lay blankets across the different seating options to allow guests to bundle up and stay warm. 

Ballroom Reception 

The ballroom is beautiful for ceremonies but can be dressed up for every style reception. The white walls and tall ceilings help create a versatile space designed to fit your dream wedding reception. The large floor to ceiling windows helps create beautiful lighting, no matter the time of your wedding reception.

Let your guests dance the night away or have intimate conversations outdoors under the twinkle lights. It will be a night to remember for you and your guests!
