Belmont Mansion Upgrades
We have several upgrade options for Belmont Mansion, each designed to enhance your elopement experience. Some of the upgrades are available to all packages, while others are targeted only to specific packages. Each of the contracts for the six elopement packages lists which upgrades are available and the cost of those upgrades. The information on this page is intended to explain the upgrades in more detail, and when appropriate, to feature photos of some of them.
Floral Upgrade - $50.00
This upgrade provides a total of three silk floral arrangements that were custom designed for Belmont Mansion. There is one large arrangement for the bay window and two smaller arrangements at the staircase The size and colors of the flowers and even the size, shape and color of the urns were all chosen personally by Rev. Rich to coordinate with the color palette in the mansion. The base flowers are cream with some soft pinks to compliment the colors of most weddings. The color, shape and style of the three urns were selected to match the color, style and size of the space. This upgrade must be selected in advance of the wedding day to allow for set up time. This upgrade is available to the Just Married, Getaway, Getaway Plus, Friends & Family and Friends & Family Plus elopements.
Candelabra Upgrade - $50.00
The four candelabras are placed at the sides of the bay window. These are antiques that have been at the mansion for a century. Each candelabra has battery-powered taper candles, each providing a flickering light that add a touch of warmth and elegance to the space during the ceremony and photos.
