Today, the site features many original architectural features as well as essential amenities for modern weddings.
Facilities and Capacity
Ahead of your wedding day at Chez Nous, you and you and your loved one can host rehearsal dinners in the mansion. Complete with a spacious kitchen, living quarters, and a stunning wrap-around porch, banquets of up to 40 guests can be hosted at this site. Those seeking to make the most of the sunshine during their wedding can do so with a ceremony on the doorstep of the barn. Perched on well-maintained lawns, you and your partner can exchange vows at the foot of the old wooden barn as guests watch on in joy. Surrounded by tall trees, this private area is fitting for such sacred moments. Once you’ve tied the knot, cocktail hours can commence by the outside stone fireplace. Situated just a few meters from the barn, this rustic space is great for casual outdoor celebrations. The stone chimney breast can be adorned with a variety of decorations to add to your style to the site. Here, you can sip on beverages and watch as the sun sets over the woodlands. A night of delicious cuisine and dancing can then take place inside the barn. Complete with tall ceilings, wooden beams, chandeliers, and a private loft space with balcony, this event space can host receptions of up to 200 people. The barn can be configured in several ways and has ample room for seated guests, a dance floor, and live entertainment.
