This unique venue offers several amenities to make your event one to remember. The main pavilion is perfect for hosting wedding receptions, special events or even corporate gatherings. If your event needs lodging accommodations for your guests, take advantage of the charming on-site cottages and tiny homes around the property.

Our outdoor, stone-paved ceremony terrace is the perfect location for saying I do. After the ceremony is complete, turn it into a dreamy dance floor, complete with market lights strung overhead. Other event amenities include an enclosed veranda with a fireplace, making the perfect in-between space for cocktail hour after any ceremony.

The Venue also offers all-inclusive catering, with all food prepared and cooked onsite with the freshest ingredients. From self-serve dinners to plated dinner service and hors d’ouervres to dessert, our catering team is here to help you pick your menu and bring your vision to life. Other catering features include a fully stocked bar and serving staff to ensure your event runs smoothly.

Jana Carlisle, Black Prong’s Event Manager and Hospitality Coordinator, is here to take the stress out of planning your event so you can focus on creating memories you will cherish forever. Whether you need help selecting color palettes and flower arrangements or remembering the finishing touches that tie the event together, Jana and the special events team are here to ensure that every last detail is flawlessly executed.

A note from Carlisle:

“I worked my first wedding when I was 15 years old, and I was hooked. Since then, in addition to my day job I’ve helped countless couples bring their wedding day visions to life, crafted and performed personalized ceremonies, lead and been heavily involved in many community events, not to mention all the fun themed parties I made my family and friends endure. There are many moving parts to organizing events, but the reward of helping people gather to celebrate, remember, or simply enjoy each other’s company while sharing something they love is far greater than the hard work to get there.”
