The Potters Reception offers three unique locations for wedding ceremonies which are the elegant chapel, garden as well as the wisteria-draped courtyard. While the chapel offers a backup indoor venue for wedding ceremonies in case of rainy weather, the wisteria courtyard remains one of the most popular wedding ceremony locations within the Potters Reception: with rustic wine barrel set on both sides of the arch, the wisteria on top of the courtyard not only provides a little shade during the summer for the guest but also offers a natural greenery backdrop for the wedding ceremony.
