 Esprit de Coeur has a very inclusive weddings package so you will not need to worry about rental of tables, chairs and linens (unless you would like seating for more than 85 people).  The only thing needed would be  centerpieces and/or extra decoration for your event.  If you would like for us to handle that aspect, we can gladly make those arrangements for you.
