Lionscrest Manor FAQ


How does catering work?

We strongly urge couples to consider a caterer who has met the qualifications to be on our Approved Caterers List. They have worked extremely hard to pass our rigorous standards and have met with unparalleled approval from past clients. If you are considering using a non-approved caterer, you will need to hire an approved event management group that we recommend.


How do decorations work?

Lionscrest Manor offers a wide variety of decor and event items included in the packages. From tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces and more. These items can be viewed and selected at one of our Decor Night events or at the event walk-thru meeting. Clients may also opt to bring in their own decor and flowers. Decor plans must be submitted to Lionscrest ahead of the event for approval.


What is the rain plan?

Lionscrest offers couples both indoor and outdoor ceremony capability allowing for a quick rain plan change if mother nature does not cooperate.


Note from the owner

Our family has a passion for helping couples create events that are memorable and timeless. We are blessed to be on the mountain top above the town of Lyons, the “Gateway to the Rockies.” Here Mother Nature’s palette is our backdrop and what a backdrop it is! Beyond the natural, we have worked hard to create tools that allow couples to plan in detail their event and then relax and enjoy the day. A key to our reputation in the industry is working with wonderful vendors to create successful events. Raising four daughters in a family business and training them to take over is a blessing and joy. We look forward to future generations of our family to continue our life's work.

Longmeadow FAQ


How does catering work?

Catering and alcohol must be purchased from Longmeadow; however, we have an extensive but affordable menu with customization services available.


How do decorations work?

Majority of decorating is left to our client’s discretion. As a standard, most of our packages include a mirror centerpiece, lighting and gobo. We do have packages that include professional decorating services. Additionally, we offer flexible decorating days and hours to reduce stress and accommodate professional decorators.


What is the rain plan?

We watch the weather forecast very carefully and contact our clients to provide options for dealing with weather. In most cases, the ceremonies are outside on a covered patio so there is some protection provided. However, should the need arise we can simply have the ceremony in the ballroom. Afternoon thunderstorms can be common certain times of the year which, at most, cause a slight delay to an outdoor ceremony. We simply invite everyone inside and open up the bar until the storm passes. The longest delay we have ever had was half an hour.



A Note from the Owners

The majority of our clients choose Longmeadow because we provide flexible, stress-free, fun, and affordable packages with the highest level of customer service available. Service is of the utmost importance when it comes to a successful wedding. Delivering exceptional customer service is the essence of what we do and great service makes everything that comes later easy. You need genuine people who care about you, your wedding and your guests and at Longmeadow that is exactly what you get. We are committed to making your special day a spectacular, stress-free success!
