The lawn is the perfect spot for your ceremony or your portraits. I love this spot because it is immaculately curated by the staff, who work tirelessly to make your surroundings perfect for your wedding day. It overlooks the crystal blue water, making it impossible to get a bad photo here.
Greenery is the perfect pop of color against the blue of the water in front of you. The space is the perfect blank canvas for all your wedding ideas. Erect a beautiful arch, covered in florals and greenery. Or lay down a Moroccan rug, for your boho flare, and light candles at your feet while the sun goes down. The lawn is also the perfect place for corn-hole and outdoor games for those summer weddings.
