New York-Hudson Valley
Bear Mountain Inn (Merry-Go-Round Pavilion)
Has anyone had their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception (or was a guest) in the Merry-go-round pavilion? I'm trying to figure out what my guests will do after the ceremony while the staff is putting the chairs back around the tables. I'm thinking of having our sendoff at that point so everyone could go outside and we could take a few photos at the fireplace and then leave and head to the main Inn for a little while. Is that enough time for the chairs to be moved back while we're outside being sent off? The tables and table settings will already be setup before the ceremony. Only the chairs need to be moved. Also we're taking all of our photos (first look, bridal party, family etc) before the ceremony.
