What is vizcaya villa's maximum capacity?
We are able to accommodate up to 132 people for ceremonies & seated dinner receptions.
What precautions should i take in case it rains on my wedding day?
You have the option of setting up your ceremony under the Lakeside Pavilion. We suggest making your weather decision early enough in the day that your planner and additional vendors can plan accordingly with ample set up time.
can my flower girl throw faux petals down the aisle?
We ask that you fill her basket with real petals, instead of faux petals as they blow into the lake with the slightest gust of wind and hinder the property from looking its best. All trash must be picked up at the conclusion on your event to avoid additional cleaning charges. Leave it as you found it.
what cleaning am i responsible for?
Vizcaya Villa operates with a "leave it as you found it" policy. While we don't expect you to deep clean and sanitize the restrooms (yuck!), we do ask that all trash is picked up, personal belongings collected and building left in satisfactory condition. (see Cleaning for additional information). (*cleaning sheet coming soon)
can i have my ceremony rehearsal at vizcaya villa before the big day?

How do i reserve my wedding date?
Dates are booked on first-come first-serve basis. A signed contract and $1,000 first payment ($500 incidentals retainer, $500 first payment) will reserve your date. At the time of booking we will also create a payment plan detailing future payments. All bookings are contingent upon completion of required event insurance which must be purchased no later than 30 days prior to booking. Your future payments can be made via bank draft through our online invoice system. Vizcaya Villa only accepts credit/debit cards with a 3% processing fee.
is there a preferred vendor list i have to use?
Nope! We welcome the vendors of your choice from catering to DJ, florist, planner, bartender etc.
what about alcohol?
If there is alcohol on the property during the time of your contracted event you must obtain and display the appropriate North Carolina ABC special use permit. Failure to do so is a violation of Vizcaya Villa's alcohol policy. Any alcohol violations may result in fines and/or immediate event termination. Further questions regarding North Carolina alcohol laws please contact ABC.nc.gov. The limited special occasion permit can be found here.
