Wedding Rates - Hawkesdene

2024-2025 Hawkesdene Wedding Rates

Hawkesdene is unique in that we are not a ‘day of’ wedding venue. Instead, we are a reunion-style venue that offers an extended stay vacation for you and your invited guests. Our Estate Wedding rates are separated into three categories which apply to any group who confirms. They are: Estate Wedding Fee, Estate Rental, and Estate Dining. See a detailed explanation of the three categories below:

Estate Wedding Fee + Estate Rental + Estate Dining + (optional) Additional Onsite Accommodations = Total Wedding & Event Fee

WEDDING FEE

WHAT’S INCLUDED:

• Wedding planning and day-of coordinating – not only on wedding day, but the entire time you are here.

• Unlimited wedding planning access via phone, text, email, and in person, too.

• Use of our furniture, equipment and an extensive amount of wedding décor items for tables and stations including lanterns, votive & floating candles, easels, signage, wine barrels, linens, and so much more, so that all you need to bring are your personal items. Please refer to the detailed list in the Estate Wedding document.
