Ceremony rehearsal on the back lawn of Sandlewood Manor.


We had the pleasure of hosting our first event at Sandlewood Manor last Friday night; a beautiful rehearsal dinner for Jonathan Palis & Catherine Hu!

While Sandlewood's 10,000 sq. ft. ballroom will be available for events starting Fall 2018, Sandlewood Manor's main estate house is the perfect venue for intimate events like rehearsal dinners, renewal of vow ceremonies & small-scale wedding ceremonies/receptions. 

 The lovely couple: Jonathan Palis & Catherine Hu.

Next, the wedding party and guests headed out to the back lawn of Sandlewood's Estate Home to run a quick rehearsal for the next day's ceremony.


The night began with big hugs, smiles, laughter and reconnection of international relatives - some of who traveled thousands of miles to celebrate the big day with the couple. Then a cocktail hour, complete with delicious appetizers and an accompanying wine & beer selection.

Romantic handcrafted decorations adorned the inside of the Manor home. Framed engagement pictures lined a candlelit table near the lounge for viewing.
