How much does the site fee cost and what is the duration of a wedding?
Our site rental fee ranges from $5000-$8000 based on the amount of food and beverage revenue. Smaller weddings site rental fee is higher than a large wedding since the food and beverage revenue is smaller. To qualify for the lowest site rental fee your food and beverage revenue must exceed $12,000 before tax and service fee. Your ceremony time does not count, after the ceremony you have 1 hour for cocktail hour and 3 hours reception. It is possible to extend the event based on your mood and your request to keep the bars open.

Do you recommend certain hotels or vendors?
It was very hard for us to endorse vendors because we compare to our high standards. The one we have chosen have really earned our trust. We have a good relationship with the Hyatt downtown which is 1/2 a mile away from Tabrizi's. Tabrizi's guests have a preferred rates and the Bride has a free upgrade to a suite. We also endorse certain vendors who we consider very professional, such as Photographers, DJ, Band, a Priest and a florist. These vendors have earned our respect based on previous experiences.
