All Inclusive, better than just venue

    Just add (happy) people...

    Creating a wedding day schedule, getting (and paying) for just enough food, linens, soda, ice, china and silverware, and staff is not easy, and can lead to wasted time and wasted money. This is why most of our brides choose all inclusive reception packages, which we customize with them. To save them time and money, and to allow them the freedom to enjoy their wedding day! The one and only!

    The Venue

    From noon to midnight, includes the Great Hall, Wedding Garden, Bride’s Room, Groom’s Room, the Gaming Arcade, 60” round tables for guests, chairs with pads, tables for cake tables, gift tables, cash bar with no minimum, snack and coffee tables, cleaning, and free parking (overnight included). This puts you in charge of linens, catering, decorations, DJ, cake, security, and insurance.

    • Saturdays May - Oct  $6000  and  Nov - Apr  $5000
    • Fridays       May - Oct  $4500  and  Nov - Apr  $3500
    • Sundays     May - Oct  $4000  and  Nov - Apr  $3000

    The prices above are available with catering and DJ. If you just want the venue, the venue cost if higher, comparable to most barns. Almost no one ever goes that route at Glenhaven once they start understanding all that it goes into a wedding reception, how much better and more affordable it is to have an inclusive package.

      Available Add-Ons

      Nice to have

      Come in the morning at 8AM, use the beauty salon, groom's room, and gaming arcade all morning... sip mimosas and relax. Unless you plan to get ready at a hotel or an actual salon, this makes the day more relaxed, as you can be in one place the whole day... $500


      Gaming for your guests all night: if you would like to keep the arcade open all night, we'll have to staff it, clean it, and occasionally fix it. This costs an additional $500.


      We support our troops, but also first responders!

      We are grateful to all who work hard to make all our lives safer! Thank you for your service military, police, fire, and EMTs. With have a token of appreciation for all of you: $500 off, available on all days except Saturdays May - October.

    • CONSIDER this!

      Venue vs Venue+
      Most places will give you a venue only price. That means you rent the floor and the walls. That is not a wedding yet... obviously. At that point, you have to start a frantic search for a number of vendors (linens, catering, DJ, other decorators, and eventually, once you get really overwhelmed, you will likely get half of our family to help, and eventually, when they drive you nuts, you will get yourself a planner and a day-of coordinator. It's a difficult journey many young ladies go through and it is not as much fun as it should be.
      If pain is your game, you can have Venue Only with us too.
      However, if your life is busy already, consider a Venue+ package with us. When you choose our linens, DJ, and inhouse catering, you get free wedding planning and day of coordinator. That is about $1600-$1800 in free services as compared to the rest of the brides out there. Plus peace of mind. Plus you never come to the deep desire to say strangle someone in your family. Plus both you and your families get to enjoy your wedding day by taking on less work and having time for more fun.
      And no, it's not going to cost more than if you pieced it all together... consider: if you rented a boat, a captain, a crew, dancers, went grocery and liquor shopping, then bought cups, napkins, TP, decorations, flowers, and loaded the boat with all that, and then spent your day coordinating everyone, and also unloaded all and everything in the same 12 hours... can you imagine having a fun cruise? Would it be cheaper than buying tickets on a cruise liner where you savored every minute? And yet, people try to have a wedding like that...

      While the venue price is just a number, a venue+ is a customized package just for you. We'll do this when you visit, if you think we are the venue for you. Generally speaking, a reception at Glenhaven, comprising of venue, linens, dinner (the meal) with china, silverware, staff, water goblets, water carafes, cloth napkins, soda, bartenders, liquor, DJ, decorations, and cake will be in the $12,000 - $25,000 range depending on your choices and your guest count.
