  4. Does Nokomis have an alternative indoor ceremony location in the event of rain?

    • Guests are also encouraged to rent an event tent for the wedding reception which can also be used to host the wedding ceremony in the event of rain.

  5. Do you host fall and winter weddings?

    • Unfortunately, our property is not winterized so we are unable to host weddings past November. As the fall can get quite cold we do not recommend hosting your wedding past the Thanksgiving long weekend.

Ceremony & Reception Questions

  1. Can I bring my own wine, beer or alcohol? Is there a corkage fee?

    • Yes. Guests are able to bring their own wine, beer and alcohol and better yet there is no corkage fee! The alcohol you bring must be served by one of our Smart Serve bartenders at the reception to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all guests.

    • We do! Over the many weddings we have hosted we would be happy to recommend that you choose from our list of preferred vendors.

  4. Are there any noise restrictions or designated quiet times on the property?

    • Music is an essential part of any party and we want our guests to truly enjoy their celebration. As long as the volume doesn’t interfere with our neighbor’s enjoyment of their property there isn’t a set quiet time. To ensure the best experience we would recommend working with the DJ’s on our preferred vendors list, they are professional and know how to keep the celebrations going.

  5. Are tables, linens, chairs, glassware and flatware included? Or will I need to rent these?

    • Tables, linens, chairs, glassware and flatware are not included. These will need to be rented for your special day. Please see our preferred vendor list to assist you with renting these items.
