First question here! I can already tell you are all going to be a lot of help.
I have Red Rock Canyon (Calico Basin) and Maggiano's (Calabria room) all booked for my wedding on 10/29.
I have a few questions I am hoping a bride who has had her wedding/knows of this places, can answer:
Calico basin has a rule against "amplified music." However, they said we could use mics for vows/officiant, which is amplified it seems....? My photographer said she has been to other weddings there where they had recorded music for the processional "amplified quietly". I emailed BLM and asked if it could be played through mic amplification, they said it was fine as long as it wasn't amplified?!? Not sure what that means...help! Are there "BLM police" around watching? Suggestions?
In the area where weddings are (the little platform) are there ever people standing there or is that area for weddings only? Will people need to be kicked out or just told there is a wedding? I believe they can just hang out because it is a public space, but was hoping for people's experiences with this.
At Maggiano's, we will have 35-40 people in the Calabria room. I have seen a lot of posts about people also getting the DiCarlo room for the dance floor. We aren't paying to rent a dance floor (just going to use carpet). However, has anyone had the setup with 4 rounds, the sweetheart table, a cake table, plus smaller table for guestbook or etc, with space for dancing? Does this actually work? No DJ for us.
Renting mics at Maggiano's, is this extra?
Any photos of any the above would be great!!
Cheers and thanks a bunch,
