The state of North Carolina has lifted all mass gathering limits at this time but encourages individuals to still practice the three W's - Wear, Wait, Wash. People who are fully vaccinated can do all of the things that they did before the pandemic. Those unvaccinated, should still wear a mask in public indoor settings & public outdoor settings when they cannot maintain social distance.

When you arrive at 5 p.m. we will have a champagne toast with ambient, acoustic music. If the weather allows, this toast will take place at the historic covered bridge and in front of the 1844 Chapel of Peace by the lake. If the weather isn’t so accommodating, we will have this champagne hour in the Education Center. 

At 6 p.m. a three-course plated, candlelight dinner wonderfully prepared by Boxcar Grille Catering, will be served. (See the full menu below.) The tables will be decorated with ivory linens, small gold candelabras, tea candles, and petals. The wood fireplace at the front of the room will be lit. 

Photo opportunities will be available inside the Great Hall in front of our Valentine-themed balloon arch as well as outside of the building in our historic sweetheart carriage.
