Your wedding planner will work directly with you to create an event plan to support your wedding day from start to finish. They will inform the RRU event coordinator of the required venue set up and catering selections according to your event timeline. If you chose not to have a wedding planner you will need to determine who will be responsible for these planning stages.
The RRU event coordinator will work with your wedding planner to ensure all logistical components related to venue set up are in place to support your event. They will share catering menus on behalf of our exclusive caterer, Truffles Catering.
