Can I choose my own vendors?
All catering services must be provided by one of the listed selected catering companies. No other catering services are permitted on the pier or in the pavilion. Kitchen facilities are available only to the select caterers.

You may choose your own vendors such as florists, photographers, cake, transportation, and event planners. We do require a list of these vendors (with addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses) 30 days prior to your event. Learn about the select caterers here.
