Do I need a day of coordinator for my event?

It depends. If you have the room in your budget, we have found them to be extremely helpful in alleviating stress for the couple and their families. They are there as your personal assistant.  They also help pack up personal items at the end of the night.

What about parking for wedding guests?

There is metered street parking and municipal parking in several locations throughout uptown Kingston (meters up till 6pm). There is a large parking lot 1 block away. Valet parking can also be arranged. Many of our parties have used a private bus service to transport guests from the hotel to the venue- allowing your guests to have fun without worry of getting back to the hotel.

Are there restrictions on what time music must end?

Yes. City ordinance requires amplified music must conclude by 2am. If you are renting the outside state park grounds, amplified music can be played until 10pm.

Does the building have heat and AC?

Happy to report—YES!

Can I use real candles?

Can I bring my own caterer for a wedding?

No. Senate Garage has an exclusive partnership with an award winning caterer, Bridge Creek Catering. They are a full service farm-to-table caterer who will work with you to craft an event that reflects you.

Do you have tables and chairs for a wedding?

All tables and chairs are rented allowing couples to choose what reflects their personal vision. Bridgecreek Catering will help you secure all your rentals for the day.

Will there be a staff person from Senate Garage the day of my event?

Yes.  Our Venue Operations Manager or owner (sometimes both!) will be onsite throughout most of your event.  This person will work with your private event coordinator or designated person to answer any questions and help with any last minute needs.  They will circulate throughout the event to act as the venue’s primary point of contact for event guests and to answer any venue-related questions, provide general assistance and oversee the property.  Senate Garage staff is not responsible for planning or cuing the details of your event.
