The Eden Resort will transform the wedding of your dreams into reality with the perfect venue for your special day. Our four main reception areas can accommodate up to 330 guests, including space for a DJ and dance floor:

  • The Courtyard can accommodate up to 330 people.
  • The Crystal Ballroom can accommodate up to 200 people.
  • The Regency Ballroom can accommodate up to 120 people.
  • The Presidential Ballroom can accommodate up to 110 people.

For smaller, more intimate events, we offer a collection of smaller reception areas, each with a unique personality. The Embassy and State Rooms can comfortably accommodate up to 50 people.

Yes. There are three options for a ceremony at the Eden. The first option is our beautiful outdoor Garden Terrace, which can accommodate up to 200 guests. The second option is to have your ceremony in the same room as your reception. The third option is to have your ceremony in a separate banquet room. We are happy to discuss the details of each of these options with you.

We will set up a courtesy block of up to 20 discounted guestrooms for your guests. Options for additional guest room are available.

Yes. We have an on-site Special Event Manager who is able to direct you in planning the perfect wedding. The Manager begins working with you at 3 months prior to the date of your event and works very closely with you throughout those 90 days until your wedding date. The Manager is also present the day of your wedding.

We permit an outside caterer only for religious and ethnic purposes, such as kosher foods or cultural specialty dessert items. Otherwise, all food and beverages must be provided by the Eden Resort. You can bring in an outside cake because we do not have an on-site pastry chef. We do not have a cake cutting fee; we will cut and serve your cake for no additional charge.

Yes. The use of any of the vendors on the list is not required; the list is available for your convenience. Most of the vendors on our list have previously provided services for ceremonies or receptions held at the Eden Resort.

We will set up typical wedding items, such as your cake knife, toasting glasses, place cards, gift card box, guestbook, and place setting favors. We will be happy to place a preassembled centerpiece on each of your guest tables. Additional decorating services are available for a fee. Vendors may deliver and set up for your event 1.5 to 2 hours prior to your reception. If there is no other event reserved 7 days prior to your reception time, we would be more than happy to extend the decorating time at no additional charge.

There are no separate rental fees for our ceremony or reception areas (note: there is a setup fee for ceremonies only – please contact us for details). Each of our reception venues has a different food and beverage minimum, depending on the date, time, and location of your reception (please contact us to discuss these minimums). All tables, chairs, plates, stemware, and silverware are included. We also provide ivory table linens and a variety of napkin colors to complement your wedding day color scheme.

Along with your signed agreement, a deposit of 25% of your minimum is required to secure your date and room. At 6 months prior to your reception, the second deposit of 25% of your minimum is due. At 3 months prior to your reception, the third deposit of 25% of your minimum is due. Your final count and final payment are due 10 days prior to your reception, and the final payment will include 6% tax and 21% service charge.
