Although weekend-long country weddings are a specialty, Sunday weddings, available year-round, present couples with the option for guests to stay for a single day or to expand the event into a Sunday-Monday celebration- at dramatically reduced rates. Experience has it that, given proper advance notice, loved ones gladly take a day off from work to attend.
There are two available scenarios for Sunday-oriented weddings at Full Moon:
The classic Sunday wedding
Friends and family arrive Sunday afternoon. The wedding celebration begins around 5:00 PM and extends late into the evening. Guests depart on Monday morning following a "farewell" country breakfast buffet in the Café.
An interesting optional twist on this format allows for any number of guests (often closest friends and family and those who have traveled a considerable distance) to stay overnight on Monday also, enjoying a lovely country BBQ together that evening.
The Sunday-Monday wedding
Guests arrive on Sunday afternoon and enjoy a catered group BBQ in the evening, followed by a streamside campfire. After breakfast in the Café on Monday morning, the wedding celebration could occur in the early afternoon or later in the day, as the couple chooses.
The ceremony is set up outdoors in the meadows or in a picturesque setting near the Barn... accompanied by a simultaneous set up under the Ceremony Tent - so that at the first thought of rain, the gathering is thoroughly covered.
A lovely cocktail hour follows at the Barn, or on the expansive lawns near the fountain, featuring one hour of premium open bar, with a full hors d’oeuvres service - including an artistically-designed tabled presentation and two passed selections.
Guests are then invited by the Maitre D’ to dinner (two entrees, two sides, salad, bread, dessert) under the Grand Tent (with permanent floor, ambient lighting, PA system, remote wireless microphone, circular tables with white linens and gold rimmed china) accompanied by two hours of full premium open bar.
The celebration continues at an after-dinner party in the rustically artistic "Performance Space", featuring a full stage, PA system, theatrical lighting, copper top bar and stone fireplace.
