Booking: The Edwards House requires a signed contract and a $750 non-refundable deposit to reserve the Lodge for your wedding. This deposit will be subtracted from your balance due at the end of your wedding less any deductions for damages. This fee may be paid by check or credit card.
The Edwards House has a list of recommended caterers. You may, however, hire any licensed and insured caterer. If you hire a caterer that is not on our list you will be charged an additional set-up and clean-up fee, which will vary based on your group size.
We do not have a liquor license. Consequently, if your caterer does not provide insured bartending service, you will need to hire a licensed and insured bartender. You will save money on your liquor purchase by buying directly from a liquor store, but all liquor must be served by the bartender. Liquor may only be served for a maximum of four hours for an afternoon or evening event or for five hours for an all day event.
