Wedding Reception with Us

Your wedding reception is a party to celebrate two people joining together surrounded by family and friends. We, at Ole Zim’s would like the opportunity to make your vision for your special day a reality.  In addition to your reception, we also offer on-premise wedding ceremonies either in our hall or outside on the property (weather permitting). The fee is $300.00 and includes the setup and removal of our chairs. Ole Zim’s will work with you to plan a successful reception from start to finish. The information provided below will give you a starting point to plan your reception with us. After you have decided on a date(s), call us so we may check the availability of your choice(s). NO dates are held until a deposit, equal to the amount of the hall rental, has been paid in full. All hall rental charges include set-up and clean-up of the hall, a hall rental time of 5 hours with all receptions ending by 12:00 midnight. Ole Zim’s prefers that you DO NOT use sand, stone, glitter, confetti, birdseed, bubbles, silly string or straw bales. If you choose to use any of these items an additional hall clean-up charge of $100.00 will be assessed.
