    @salejolie:  Well we did a package and it included the ceremony location if you booked their package.

    For $1700 we got:

    2 nights stay in king suite overlooking lake

    2 mornings of breakfasts for two

    custom wedding cake

    custom bouquet and boutonniere

    champange with dinner

    three course wedding dinner

    toasting flutes

    a wedding planner to do it all for us

    free use of the patio overlooking the lake and mountains (with a backup rain location in the lodge)


    If we were just staying elsewhere and wanted to use the patio, I think it would have been $500 alone.

    Ours was free. However, we had to put down $100 to hold the date and we decided to donate it to the venue.

    We eloped at the city hall. They requested a donation (it included the space as well as having an officiant – the mayor). The donation is used to buy food for the pantry, so we donated a bit more b/c that was important to us and still very inexpensive.
