Twickenham FAQ

How does catering work?

Catering is provided in-house by Morchella Provisions. Led by Executive Chef John Walsh, all menus include passed hors d’oeuvres, starter, entree choices, sides, and dessert! Inclusive open-bar packages are available at a variety of price points to fit every budget. Reception meals are available as stations, buffets, or seated-serve.

How do decorations work?

Twickenham has an extensive rental inventory that is included with our Full Planning package. Additionally, many clients choose to bring their own decorations. Live flame is allowed along with anything that does not permanently alter the venue space. Your planner will assist in design and decoration placement on the big day!

What is the rain plan?

In the event of rain, a tent may be rented to cover the cocktail hour space. The ceremony will take place in our reception hall in front of the State’s largest fireplace! During cocktail hour, our staff will flawlessly flip the reception space from ceremony to reception. We’ve had guests comment that they had no idea it wasn’t the original plan all along!

Note from the Owner Every couple tells us that the wedding was amazing, but the weekend with family and friends was unforgettable! We are so honored to host the biggest event of our couples’ lives together and hope that we can continue to be a special place for many more. If you’re on the fence, schedule a tour! A walk through the manor homes and reception hall leads you to the cliffside ceremony spot, and at the very least, you’ll leave with an epic photo of you and your honey at one of the best overlooks in the high country!
