Our average base cost for a Long View Gallery wedding is calculated by figuring a 125-person guest list for a Saturday evening ceremony and reception using a $10,000 site rental fee and a food/beverage cost of $125/pp common for the area. Entertainment, flowers, furniture, additional decorations and rentals, transportation, and photography are not included. Price is rounded up to the nearest thousand. Gratuity and sales tax is included.

Woman Getting Married Says:

You can do a ton to this wedding venue space, or you can simply leave it as is and put the focus on brightly colored flowers and a few modern or vintage wedding ideas. For the rental fee I’d love to see them include items such as tables and chairs, but considering all the great art work you’ll have hanging on the walls, you can consider that additional decor. Be sure to go over everything in your venue contract ahead of time so there are no last minute surprises!
