Rehearsal Dinners

Kick off your wedding festivities with a unique rehearsal dinner. Grill out on our gorgeous patio, host a chic cocktail party in the lobby or enjoy a glam candlelit dinner in the glass atrium; we can make the event as casual or as formal as you like.

Indoor Weddings

Our Atrium is a popular and versatile space for large or small ceremonies. A rental fee of $1,000 is charged for this area. This fee includes setup of our standard chairs and riser, complimentary microphone for your officiant, use of The Hotel’s baby grand piano and space for conducting a ceremony rehearsal. The Hotel will guarantee a space for rehearsal the evening before your wedding date.

The spectacular 7,454-square-foot Ballroom, our largest venue, can seat up to 450 guests for a banquet. Our Pre-function Area is 4,100 square feet; it boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and space for up to 300 guests.

Outdoor Weddings

We offer a beautiful formal garden area that is ideally suited for outdoor weddings of 20 – 300. A rental fee of $400 is charged for this area.

(Please note that The Hotel at Kirkwood’s banquet chairs are not suitable for outdoors. Therefore, if you plan to have seating for any or all of your guests at your outdoor ceremony, chairs must be rented.)

Wedding Preparation Room

Prepare for your special occasion with your wedding party in this room, which is available for use prior to the ceremony. The room must be reserved for the night prior to the wedding to ensure it is available prior to your ceremony and wedding reception.
