One-hour Weddings

If you are working with a modest budget and are planning a more intimate wedding, then the one-hour wedding package is for you. Packages includes private use of either the Mayor’s Balcony or a Fourth Floor Gallery for up to one-hour. This would be perfect for a ceremony and quick photo session. I wouldn’t recommend having a large wedding guest list for just one-hour of time, but this reservation allows for up to 100 guests.

For just $1000 you can rent one of the above spaces for an hour. Availability ranges from Monday through Friday, with the earliest ceremony beginning at 9:00 am and the latest beginning at 3:00 pm. Chairs are an additional equipment rental fee. The Mayor’s Balcony seats up to 40 and the Fourth Floor Galleries up to 60. With the remaining guests standing for the ceremony.

In addition, food and beverage services are unavailable due to time constraints. However, there are plenty of dining options in the city! And if you want to add an extra layer of ambiance, consider hiring a musician. Acoustic music may be played with advance approval, and musicians must be selected from our qualified list.
