You are free to choose your own caterer and other service providers. Please see our list of Preferred Caterers & Other Service Providers to choose a caterer that is right for you. If you use one of our preferred caterers, you will receive an additional hour of rental free of charge. ("Use" of caterer means that professional catering staff are on site during the event.)
