If your guest count allows you to move the ceremony inside to the chapel LWW will help you make that adjustment. Moving the ceremony on the covered patio is also an option. LWW reserves the right to close the garden for ceremony and receptions if rain creates an unsafe or flooded/muddy situation in the garden.

Yes. We have a kitchen but it is best used for food prep. We have a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker available for use. Please let the caterer know that we have limited kitchen space and no use of stove for cooking.
Can we bring alcohol?
Yes. Little Wren Weddings is a No Cash Bar Facility. All bars are hosted by the bride and groom or family of the couple. To protect us and you - all alcohol must be stored and served by TABC certified bartender. It is the policy of WLJurgens that no shots be served and all liquor drinks must have equal parts mixer used.
LWW has a bartender you can hire if you need the service or you can hire your own.
What happens if it rains and I have an outdoor wedding?
You are welcome to move the ceremony indoors to the Chapel if your guest list is 64 or less. Should rain cause the garden to be unsafe (swampy) Little Wren reservers the right to ask brides to move their ceremony inside.
