Weddings and Events

IMG_5334.jpg

The Mazant regularly hosts weddings and wedding-related events on site and can accommodate up to 180 guests - depending on layout. 

All weekend events require a three-night minimum stay (around $5,000), plus an additional fee based on the number of guests and type of event, ranging between $1,500 and $7,500.  This fee includes exclusive use of the house and grounds for your stay and takes into account standard cleaning, taxes, and service fees - as well as load in / load out for your vendors.  It doesn't include any equipment rental, music/AV, catering, etc.  Additionally, you are responsible for purchasing event liability insurance as well as contracting with an approved security vendor (see below for more details).

The house is located in the center of a triple lot, with a corner yard (under the oak tree) on one side and a private, fenced yard on the other side.  The two yards are connected by a center hallway that runs through the middle of the house.  Some groups choose to do part of the event (i.e. ceremony) in one yard and then the other part of the event (i.e. reception) in the other yard, but depending on size of your group you could do it all on one side.  The non-cottage side yard is private and fenced, but also has a large gate that can be opened to allow easy access for a food truck.

A few other common questions / things to note:

  • Parking: There are two (2) off-street parking spots in the driveway as well as ample street parking (no permit required).  For events, we will work with you to arrange offsite parking and/or a shuttle to avoid congestion in the neighborhood.
  • Music: We have local regulations requiring all outdoor music to stop by 9:00pm, but there are several local bars within a few blocks that people often head to from the house for more late-night festivities.
  • Sleeping Capacity: The main house can sleep 16-18 people.  The caretaker's cottage can sleep another two (2) people in a queen bed, and also includes a full bath (shower/clawfoot tub combo), kitchen, and laundry.  The cottage costs an extra $150 per night. 
  • Tenting: The side yard (non-cottage side) can accommodate a 30' x 30' tent.  We have an approved vendor (Mascaro Brothers Rentals) and we'll work with you to secure the required city permits for any tent(s), but need at least two (2) months notice.
  • Kitchens: There are two kitchens on the property - one in the main house and one in the guest cottage.  The kitchens are close together (approximately 20 feet apart), so it is reasonably easy to use both for food preparation.  There is also a BBQ grill in the rear courtyard.
  • Permits: If you choose to have an event on site, we will apply for the necessary permits on your behalf.  The cost of permitting is already included in your event fee.
  • Security: We require private security guards for any afternoon/evening event with more than 50 people.  Events larger than 100 people require two (2) guards, and those above 150 require three (3) guards.  Approximate cost is $25-$30 per hour, per officer and we can provide a recommended list of companies.
  • Insurance: We also require you to purchase private liability insurance for any event on site. This costs around $100 and is available through WedSafe or Progressive/Event Helper.
  • Tours: In terms of the space, the easiest way to get a sense of the layout is to use the digital tour or view the floor plans on the Property Details page.  If you'd like to come in person, we do not show the property when we have guests, but with advanced notice can generally arrange a tour during the week with our property manager.

Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to learn more.  The best way to get in touch is via e-mail at hello@mazant.com.
