FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Your event is important to us and we want to ensure you have a great experience at our venue. We have compiled some of the more frequently asked questions on this page. If you still have questions, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.
CAN I USE MY OWN VENDORS?
Yes. To make the search for the right vendor a little easier, a Vendors List will be given to you at the time of booking, where many reputable vendors can be found. The vendor options range from caterers, decorators, florists, photographers, and much more. Again, you may choose whether to use our recommended vendors, or your own.
CAN I PURCHASE MY OWN ALCOHOL AND USE MY OWN BARTENDER?
Yes. You may purchase your own alcohol, but while we offer an open vendor policy for any other service, we require that our clients select one of our bartenders to serve any alcohol being provided. Bartenders are to be paid separately for their service(s) as they are independent companies and will be contracted by you, The Renter, after booking with us. If you will not be having alcohol at your event, a bartender is not required. Cash bars are prohibited.
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE USE OF THE EVENT SPACE? WHAT IF WE STAY LONGER THAN THE SCHEDULED EVENT TIME?
Weekend events have an event duration of five (5) hours with a midnight cut-off. For events scheduled on Monday-Thursday, the event duration is a total of three (3) hours with a 10:00 p.m. cut-off. The renter’s event must conclude and all guests must be dismissed from the venue at the scheduled event end-time. If you would like to extend the event's duration, a fee will be imposed on a per hour basis.
WHAT TIME DOES THE VENUE OPEN FOR SET-UP?
On weekend events, our venue opens four (4) hours prior to the event start-time. For events scheduled on Monday-Thursday, our venue opens two (2) hours before the scheduled start-time of your event. Additional set-up time may be purchased on a per hour basis.

We can accommodate up to 200 persons. Saturday events have a minimum head-count of 50 persons.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE CAN I BOOK MY EVENT?
We take bookings up to twelve (12) months in advance. All rentals are first come, first served and holds cannot be placed on dates.
CAN I STOP BY FOR A TOUR?
Sure! Please call for an appointment. The venue is normally available for tours on Fridays and Saturdays, but availability is limited due to COVID-19.
We Highly recommend Seaquel Place Banquet Hall!! Ivan is wonderful to work with. He is very understanding and accommodates to exactly what you need for your event. He is incredibly honest. The Hall is very pretty and offers tables and chairs with covers. That was a plus for me especially since it was my wedding day. I wanted the overall look of the hall to be elegant yet still stay within my budget. My wedding ceremony was beautiful and I will never regret going business with this banquet hall. All the guests loved everything and so did I.Thank Ivan :) Kindest Regards

We accept checks, cash, credit/debit cards, and Zelle. Checks are payable to Seaquel Place, LLC. Credit/debit card payments are made online and can be done remotely or on-site at our venue. A 3% convenience fee & tax is factored in to all online transactions.
CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE REQUIRED SECURITY DEPOSIT?
A $500.00 refundable, cash security deposit is due approximately one (1) month prior to your event. Due dates will be specified in your contract. As long as no damage is done to the venue, nor are any terms in our contract breached, the amount will be fully refunded to you within one (1) week after your event.
DOES YOUR VENUE OFFER CONVENIENTLY LOCATED PARKING?
There are over 100 parking spaces shared with the building we are located in. We are the only business in operation on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings, therefore there is no interference with parking availability.
ARE WE REQUIRED TO SWEEP AND MOP THE FACILITY AFTER OUR EVENT?
No, but we do ask that you remove all of your personal items. This includes but is not limited to: decorations, accessories, and food.
WITH ONLY ONE MAIN BALLROOM, HOW CAN I HAVE MY WEDDING CEREMONY AND RECEPTION IN THE SAME VENUE?
After your ceremony concludes, your guests may transition into our lobby for a cocktail hour, while the room flip is being executed by a representative of yours, i.e. wedding planner, etc. We do not charge a fee for a ceremony, therefore we do not assist in the set-up and rearrangement of the tables and chairs before and after the ceremony takes place. You may also choose to retain the reception-styled dinner set-up for a simple transition when the ceremony ends.
ARE CANDLES PERMITTED?
Candles in a protected glass holder are permitted, but need to be approved in advance, as we cannot run the risk of a fire or accident.
DOES YOUR VENUE PERMIT SMOKING INDOORS?
No. The venue is smoke-free and this includes e-cigarettes, vapes, hookahs, etc. Your guests are welcome to smoke in our designated smoking area in the outside courtyard.
