Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring in my own food?
Yes you are able to bring in the vendor of your choice including the caterer of your choice. We will offer a list of recommended vendors that you are welcome to choose from but we do not require you use anyone on that list.
Are we able to have both Ceremony and Reception at the same location?
Yes. We have multiple spaces for all of your wedding day events.
Depending on your needs and the size of event you can rent the entire building.
There is no additional charge for your rehearsal for which we allow 2 hours if no other event is scheduled in the ballroom. You may rehearse in another room if it is available. You may rent the space for your rehearsal to ensure availability.
Can I come in early to decorate?
You are allowed access to your rooms when your time block starts, if you think you will need extra time to decorate please factor that in when selecting your time block. When your time block begins we will have the tables, chairs set up (as discussed during your detailing) so the room will be ready for you and/or your vendors to decorate at that time.
Do you have a catering Kitchen?
The Golden Doors provides a prep space that features a refrigerator, sink and counter space. We will provide use of a microwave as needed but our prep area is not equipped for cooking or heating food on a cooking stove.
We do not charge professional Caterers a fee. We charge all non-professional caterers a $300 fee in order to cover some of the additional services we provide to them ( including use of the kitchen, clean up etc.)
Typically this fee is not passed on to the Client however we want to make sure all caterers and clients are provided full disclosure prior to booking an event at The Golden Doors Conference and Event Center.
The fee is collected 48 hours prior to the event no entry into the facility until all fees are current.
