Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming nuptials! At the Melange, it’s all about your experience — your love, joy, laughter and tears. Our goal is to provide you a one-of-a-kind setting in charm. We are honored to be part of your wedding day and are committed to exceeding your every expectation. Just let stress go, be playful, have a good laugh, and enjoy the adventure and the bliss. We will take care of the rest.
Grand and Exotic – that is how we perceive our multiple garden and indoor ceremony and reception venues that will accommodate nuptials of 2 to 100+, rain or shine. All very private and intimate. If your guest size is 35 or more, your wedding will enjoy exclusivity to all of our finely-appointed facilities and beautiful gardens.
Besides wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions, the Melange can also accommodate engagement parties, bridesmaids luncheons, wedding rehearsal dinners, and post-reception brunches.
Before Your Wedding
Once you have had the opportunity to review our wedding amenities and policies, we would be delighted to invite you for a personal tour of the historic home, the premises, the Tile Pavilion, the bridal suite, and other guest rooms for wedding guests. Your next visit will give us time to discuss customized set-ups, linens, glassware, flatware, china, and staffing for your event. It’s also a good time to consider recommended vendors, and evaluate which of our ceremony, wedding reception, and rehearsal dinner sites may best suit your style. Next comes menu planning which includes a complimentary tasting session. And please keep in mind that we like to spoil our friends with a mean espresso.
During Your Wedding
The tone for your Big Day is set from the moment you wake up in your luxury bridal suite. As such, we invite you to do whatever makes you happy and is additive to your experience. How about a rejuvenating massage? Or perhaps a champagne breakfast in your room? If you wish, we may have a final dry run. You may then open the doors of your bridal suite to your make up artist and hair stylist. The right music, lighting, food … Don’t be surprised if our dedicated staff pops into your bridal suite with a mouthwatering platter of freshly prepared fruit to go with a Champagne … after all, this is your day.
After Your Wedding
Wake up to your first breakfast as “Mr. and Mrs.” in your room or share the treat with your other house guests in the Greenhouse Room…Stay a night longer, relax and unwind in the gardens or visit the Jump Off Rock and imagine the Cherokee maiden who did not get to marry her love. End the first day of your marriage with a perfect candlelit dinner served for the two of you… after all, you do have something to celebrate.
