Afternoon Tea and Pre-wedding planning scheduled sometime before your wedding day to meet your hosts, see the grounds and to go over your wedding ideas. Come and spend an hour here in the hollow and easily visualize your Butterfly Hollow wedding, while enjoying nature softly whispering around you. If you don't live close enough to stop by, we'll be able to go over all the details over the phone and via email.
1 Night lodging as the hollow's only B&B guest. Come spend the evening before your wedding day or stay for the first night of your honeymoon and enjoy the private setting to relax and connect with the one you love. You are also welcome to use the other guest room and bathroom to get dressed in separately on your wedding day. There is also an option for a second night of exclusive lodging.
Full gourmet breakfast served with flowers and candles. Meals are lovingly prepared by your hosts and seasonally feature fresh organic vegetables, herbs and spices grown here in the hollow.
Evening Dessert served with hot tea or coffee. "Tea Time" in the hollow often features home made cookies, pies and cakes.
Hand Dipped Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Sit by the crackle of the fireplace or slip out to the porch or up to the gazebo and watch the deer and turkey play on the hillside while you nibble, laugh, and feed each other these delicious treats.
Hand Tied Bridal Bouquet that seasonally features many of the wild and cultivated flowers grown in the gardens at Butterfly Hollow. If the groom wears a jacket, he'll match his bride's beautiful flowers with a boutonniere. There is also an option for a customized bouquet as well as additional bridesmaid bouquet, and best man boutonniere and mother's corsage.
Intimate Wedding Ceremony held at the hillside gazebo or inside the historic farmhouse for a nostalgic setting. Your wedding location will be tastefully decorated with natural touches and fresh flowers of the season. You are also welcome to bring and decorate with any special touches you have in mind too. The personal ceremony will be officiated by a licensed wedding officiant. David, who is one of the hosts for the bed and breakfast, often performs the wedding ceremony and enjoys creating memorable wedding ceremonies that mingle laughter and smiles and your story of love all together. You are also welcome to provide your own officiant. The celebration can include any special traditions you wish, from unity candles, sand ceremony and special prayers to the Apache wedding blessing and your own personal vows.
Celebrate with up to Fourteen Guests. Share the moment, the hollow and wonderful celebration with up to 14 of your closest friends and family. Your guests are welcome to arrive 30 minutes before the ceremony time, though if you have a close friend or family member or two that you would like to join you as you get ready, they can arrive anytime. Guests should arrive dressed and ready for the ceremony.
Homemade Wedding Cake to die for. These made from scratch 10" wedding cakes are not only extremely delicious but are tastefully decorated with flowers to match your wedding bouquet. The cake cutting ceremony is usually held inside the farmhouse and is displayed upon linens and includes all the necessary plates, utensils and glassware. There will also be a toast of sparkling punch for everyone to enjoy, though you are also welcome to bring along a bottle or two of champagne. There's also an option to include the use of the kitchen if you would like to provide a light reception of finger foods for your guests.
Photography will be provided by your own professional or family photographer. Your photographer would be welcome to arrive with you and capture every minute of your day. They are also not included in the 14 person guest limit. There is also an option if you would like Butterfly Hollow to provide the photography for you.
Personalized Wedding Certificate from Butterfly Hollow. The official one will let you change your drivers license but this one will make you smile when you pass by it on your wall at home. You'll take home a copy of your wedding vows too, so you can always revisit the foundation you created when you said "I Do".
Wedding Bubbles for your guests. We support the environmentally friendly way of throwing rice at the bride and groom after the ceremony.... and it sure beats pulling rice out of your hair.
Keepsake Toasting Glasses so you can always raise a glass, smile and return to your memories of your wonderful wedding in Butterfly Hollow.
