December 6th, 2019

When planning your wedding day, you might be looking for a separate ceremony only wedding venue and then having your reception somewhere else. While Silver Sycamore is typically an all-inclusive wedding venue, we do provide the option to have your ceremony only with us. 

Couples who choose this option have come for a few reasons:

1. They found us after they booked their reception hall.

2. They LOVE the Chapel.

3. Their reception hall doesn’t have a ceremony space.

There are other reasons, but these are the most typical.

Juana & Jesse came to us and wanted to have their ceremony in the Chapel, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Take a sneak peak into their ceremony portion of their big day at Silver Sycamore.

We asked Juana a few questions about her big day and here is what she had to say.

1. What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
My favorite part of my wedding day was when I was walking down the isle. As soon as I stepped into the chapel, that’s when it felt real and everything looked so beautiful and as I imagined. Seeing the man of my dreams waiting for me at the altar just melted my heart! Emoji

2. What was one part of your wedding that you were really happy you decided to do? (ex. videography, decor, type of ceremony, etc,)
I’m really happy with how the flower decorations looked and having my wedding ceremony done in the chapel, but I am glad we decided to have a videography done that day because every time I watch it, it feels real and reminds me of the beautiful things I felt on my wedding day..”

3. If you could give one piece of advice to brides planning their weddings currently, what would it be?

I would say, hire a wedding planner! Having a wedding planner helped me and my husband stay organized and also helped us have things done at the right time. The year of planning also went by really fast. We hired Arianna Giselle Events to help us with wedding planning and coordinating

4. Why did you choose Silver Sycamore as your venue?
The reason why we chose Silver Sycamore was because we loved how it had the beautiful chapel, different areas to have our wedding pictures taken at and because it had the bridal cottage. Since we had a December wedding I wanted to make sure the wedding ceremony was indoors in case we had bad weather. Everything else also looked amazing for the videography of our wedding.

Even though Juana and Jesse had their reception elsewhere, they still had an absolutely beautiful ceremony in the Chapel and were able to take tons of portraits after the ceremony. We wish we could show you all of them, but these were our favorites!
