After your ceremony rehearsal, gather with your guests and begin the weekend in style. The dining room at Rowland House is perfect for an intimate dinner of up to 20 guests, or dine in the stunning Taylor House for an occasion with up to 50 guests.

Welcome Party

Once the rest of your guests have arrived and checked into their rooms, gather for a fun meet-and-greet before the big day. The lakeside lawn at Rowland House provides plenty of space for up to 50 guests to relax and enjoy.

Getting Ready

Gratitude, our getting ready space, is conveniently located next to the Aurora Inn and features dedicated hair and makeup stations. Snacks and beverages can be catered directly to the celebrants by our culinary team.


The most magical day of your life deserves an unforgettable setting, and the lakeside lawn at the Aurora Inn is just such a place. This is the only wedding venue on Cayuga Lake with unobstructed sunset views and direct lake access, giving your event a picturesque backdrop.


Stroll the few steps to the Aurora Inn for cocktails, dinner, and dancing. Set among banks of white tea roses and a pair of antique fountains, our expansive bluestone patio is an effortlessly refined yet relaxed place to toast and celebrate.

After Party

Once the reception music fades, head across the street and keep the party going at the Fargo Bar & Grill. Loosen your tie and kick off your heels at our laid-back tavern, the ideal place to unwind with friends and family.
