Plan B: Indoor Wedding Ceremony | Saphire Event Group

Cue “Ironic” by Alanis Morrisette… It’s raining on your wedding day. Don’t worry, the Saphire Event Group has got you covered!

After an especially damp 2023 wedding season, planning for an indoor wedding ceremony as a backup is always a good idea. To help inspire, we have shared several of our indoor wedding ceremonies that turned out just as beautifully as outdoor ones. We pride ourselves on creating couples’ dream weddings, regardless of the weather!

Each of our venues has the option to accommodate a full indoor wedding ceremony when needed. 90 minutes prior to their ceremony, couples can make the decision to move inside. If waiting out the rain has proved unsuccessful, don’t panic- our experienced team can transform your reception space or one of our unique indoor ceremony spaces in minutes!

We love outdoor ceremonies, but sometimes Mother Nature has other plans! However, our expert team can create an indoor wedding ceremony space that is beautiful, intimate, and most importantly, dry! 

The Tent at The Villa

The Tent converts into an elegant, bright, and inviting indoor ceremony space in no time! The finished tent floor and stone pathways are ideal for rainy weddings, avoiding any contact with mud so couples and guests can dance the night away worry-free!

The Villa The Tent can give an indoor wedding ceremony the look and feel of an outdoor one, without getting wet! Plus, the open curtains allow photographers to capture the shimmering raindrops behind your ceremony for the dreamiest photos!

“The moment we entered The Tent I could already envision my wedding! Even though it rained and our ceremony couldn’t be held outside, the whole staff really made everything run so smoothly.”

The Villa’s Madera Ballroom

The Madera Ballroom’s rustic elegance and custom fireplace create a beautiful backdrop for an indoor ceremony! The high ceilings, chandeliers, and dark wood accents photograph beautifully, and the ballroom is cozy and romantic no matter the guest count!

From Real Madera Bride Maggie:

“We were supposed to have our ceremony outdoors but it had been pouring the entire day. They let us wait until the last second to decide if we still wanted to have the wedding outside and even set up a tent for the musicians just in case. We ultimately ended up having the ceremony indoors, but they made it look just as stunning as outside! They [SEG Wedding Producers] really worked as hard as they could to make my husband and me happy!”

The Villa’s Grand Ballroom

The Villa’s Grand Ballroom is pure opulence, with crystal chandeliers and a 14-foot linear fireplace giving a contemporary romantic touch to any indoor wedding ceremony. We find indoor ceremonies in the Grand Ballroom always wow couples and guests!

“The grand ballroom was the perfect place for my husband and I to get married. We had a gorgeous indoor wedding ceremony in front of the large fire display in addition to cute rainy day pictures under the covered archway and in the garden area.”

The beauty of Saphire Event Group’s venues is their flexibility! Saphire Estate couples can also choose to orient their indoor wedding ceremony facing the ballroom windows, taking advantage of the gorgeous natural light pouring in and keeping the rain out! 

From Real Saphire Estate Bride Siobhan: 

“The day of our wedding, which was supposed to be outside, it was going to rain. Kayla called me the morning of and we had such a great conversation about moving the wedding ceremony indoors. Had Kayla not prepared me for this possibility, or called me that morning to discuss what it meant, I would have been upset. But because of our previous conversations and knowing she had our best interest in mind, moving the ceremony inside was no big deal – it was still SO beautiful.”

Avenir’s ballroom is not only an incredible space to host a reception; it can hold a glittering and luxurious indoor wedding ceremony as well. The chic white ballroom features crystal accents and a mother-of-pearl dance floor that blends perfectly with any decor style, and it is truly incredible to watch this space transform from ceremony to reception in a few short minutes.

From Real Avenir Bride Kathryn:

“While the weather didn’t cooperate and we ended up with a Nor’ Easter on our wedding day, the venue was beyond gorgeous and set up exactly as we had imagined. I can’t say enough about the comments we received about how smoothly everything went, how DELICIOUS the food was, and how gorgeous the venue was.”

The Lakehouse

Floor-to-ceiling windows will provide incredible natural light reflecting from the lake right outside, and the expansive ballroom will be easily convertible from ceremony to reception by our expert team. We can’t wait to show you how we transform this space, inside and out!
