Belmont Mansion Upgrades
Enhancing Your Elopement
Belmont Mansion has several upgrades designed to enrich your ceremony. Some upgrades are available to all ceremonies, while others are designed only for specific package options. Each contract for our elopements lists which upgrades are available as well as the cost of those upgrade options. The upgrade information provided here is intended to explain the upgrades in detail. Upgrades may be selected when booking an elopement and they may also be added later.
Floral Upgrade - $50.00
This provides three silk floral arrangements that were designed for Belmont Mansion. We have one large arrangement for the bay window and two small arrangements by the base of 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 grand salon. 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, and Getaway Plus elopements.
Candelabra Upgrade - $50.00
Four candelabras are placed at the sides of the bay window. These are antique items that have been in the mansion's inventory for over 100 years. Each candelabra has battery-powered taper candles, each providing a flickering light that add a touch of elegance to the space during the ceremony and photos. 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, and Getaway Plus elopements.
Recorded Music - $50.00
One processional song and one optional recessional song. Equipment provided and run by Rich Events. Couple may select one processional song and an optional recessional song, both of which must be available from iTunes/Apple Music. Selection must be submitted to Rich Events 24 hours before the ceremony or Rich Events will make default selection. If only one song is selected, it will be used for the processional and there will be no recessional. If the couple submits two songs, they must indicate which is for processional and which is for recessional. If the couple does not submit a selection in time, Rich Events will provide a default selection for the processional song, and there will be no recessional song. This upgrade is available for the Getaway Elopement and Getaway Plus Elopement.
Commemorative Vows Certificate - $25.00
Rich Events has created a way for couples to remember their weddings vows. We will provide a lovely printed version of your vows on our high-quality paper that we also use to create our Certificates of Marriage and Renewal of Vows.
These certificates are customized for each couple, so this upgrade must be selected at least 24 hours before the ceremony, but ideally 5 days before the ceremony. This upgrade is available to all packages at the mansion.
Marriage License Delivery
Rich Events has two upgraded delivery options for Davidson County Clerk licenses and one for the other 94 counties in Tennessee.
In the $25.00 basic hand delivery option, Rev. Rich will personally deliver your completed and signed Tennessee Marriage License paperwork back to the Davidson County Clerk in Nashville after the ceremony. This upgrade is available to all couples in any package booking, but only for licenses obtained at the Davidson County Clerk in Nashville. The clerk will process the paperwork and they will send the certified copy to you by regular mail (U.S. Postal Service) to arrive within 30 days.
In the $100.00 premium hand delivery option, Rev.
