Description:

A Blank Canvas Venue

French's Point is a Blank Canvas Venue, providing an outstanding location with 9 possible ceremony settings and 14 different gathering spaces. You choose how you wish to use these amenities during your time here. French’s Point is a very large vacation rental property with 20 acres and three beautiful homes which are offered to one couple and their guests exclusively for the entire weekend. Our weekend celebrations feel like a vacation, a reunion, and a wedding all combined.

 

Our goal for our couples is for you to have a wedding that is unique to you, that suits your vision of your celebration & one that is within your budget. To foster this goal, you hire your choice of vendors: planner, caterer, bar service provider, florist, photographer, etc. This allows you to engage the vendor team that best suits your goals and is within your budget. We have an excellent preferred vendor list to help you on the search for your team, but you can use whichever vendors best align with your preferences, as long as they are insured (liability insurance) and licensed where applicable (caterer, bar service provider, food truck, baker, hair and make-up design). There are no cookie cutter events here and no food and beverage minimums to meet!

 

Accommodations

French's Point offers three beautiful homes at the estate with 26 guests suites that provide lodging for 26-62 guests for the weekend. Located nearby is a network of rental cottages and rental homes that afford lodging for 60-80 additional guests. A variety of nightly lodging properties are located 10-25 minutes from French's Point for additional guests to suit all budgets.

 

 

Wedding Team

At French's Point, couples choose their own team of vendors to include a wedding planner, caterer, and bar service provider. The venue allows clients to create an experience that is a unique reflection of their vision for the wedding weekend and one that suits their budget.
