Benefits (It's economical)

Why have your wedding or reception at Sunshine Hollow? We're glad you asked!

  • Wed at either of our beautiful settings, either outside at the wedding arbor or at our brand new event center in our 4,000 square foot ballroom with 20 foot high ceilings, rustic chandeliers and wall sconces.
  • Use of the Ballroom is available at no charge in case of rain for garden weddings. This saves the rental of a backup tent which could cost from $2000.00 and up to rent and set-up.
  • Our venue rental includes all guest chairs for your garden wedding which will be set up at the wedding site. It includes the use of the Ballroom, Bride's Dressing Room, and Groom's Dressing Room and pictues in the Gardens.

  • Wedding guests can enjoy visiting The Gardens while waiting for the wedding or reception.

  • Extra time is allowed for Wedding pictures and decorating before the Wedding. If you want to come and take engagement pictures before the wedding or more pictures after the wedding, then you may do so by prior arrangement at no charge.
  • Sunshine Hollow will provide parking assistance for the event and power for your sound equipment or instrumentalists.
  • Our total price with food is less than just the venue rental at many other facilities.
  • Weddings and receptions can be held year round in our new facility. Have your wedding at Church and come to our beautiful Ballroom for your reception.
