Receptions

Enhance your special day by escaping from the ordinary and surrounding yourself with the beauty of McCrory Gardens.

THE GREAT HALL

 

Our premiere 3,000 sq. ft room creates a perfect reception setting as it was designed as an extension of the outdoors. The Great Hall reservation offers two unique indoor and outdoor venues for you and your guests to enjoy. The vaulted ceilings and large windows create a feeling of sitting in the middle of the gardens.

Included is private access to the Terrace Gardens, which allows guests to enjoy themselves while strolling through the gated garden or simply, relaxing in the various patio areas.

MEETING ROOMS: EAST & WEST

 

The meeting rooms create a perfect space for a buffet station. With the four-sided buffet, it provides a spacious area for smooth flow of guests.  

 

These rooms are also available for the wedding parties to use as changing rooms, if you are hosting both your ceremony and reception at McCrory Gardens.

 

*McCrory Gardens staff does a reset of these rooms if used for both dressing rooms and buffet station.
