A message to our couples and those in search for venues during this challenging time:

As we all navigate the evolving changes due to COVID-19, our hearts go out to those who are struggling during this pandemic to alter and shift their plans after spending months putting their heart and soul into the many pieces that make their day so incredibly special. 

At GCV&M, our Wedding & Event department is dedicated to being a constant resource for you and your family and will continue to do what we do best. We will continue to stay in constant communication with each of our clients, and promise nothing short of support and absolute accommodation throughout this process. Whether you are in search of a different date or want to talk through details to formulate a plan around your event, we will do everything in our power to put your worry at ease and to make sure your big day remains as special and meaningful as you had always hoped it would be.

For those looking for venues and planning your big day for 2021 and beyond – first of all, congratulations!  While GCV&M is unable to host site-visits until May 1st or later, we would be thrilled to chat with you about the vision you have for your big day, and how we can help.

Be Inspired by Our Endless Photo Opportunities!

Let's start planning your perfect day. Historic white churches, green meadows, pioneer cabins, stately 19th-century mansions and gardens, plus one-of-a-kind dining venues, all provide an inimitable backdrop for your special day.

Consider a horse-drawn carriage, a charming 170-year-old church (there are two to choose from), photos under a romantic pergola interwoven with vines (just one of dozens of romantic surroundings), or dining and dancing within a dramatic setting.
