Weddings and Receptions

Weddings and wedding receptions are charged a flat rate of $1,000 for external clients and $500 for faculty, staff, students and registered alumni of Davidson County Community College. Additionally, use of the Rittling Conference Center for weddings and receptions is limited to only those weekends during the months of May through August, beginning with the first weekend following the College’s annual commencement and ending the last weekend prior to the start of fall classes.

Wedding and/or wedding reception fees include the following:

  • Wedding ceremonies are scheduled for four hours on the event date. The building will open two hours prior to the start time of the event and close two hours after the start time. Additional rehearsal, setup or cleanup time may be requested through the Conference Center coordinator, and is invoiced at an additional rate.
  • Wedding receptions are scheduled for six hours on the event date. The building will open two hours prior to the start time of the event and close four hours after the start time.
  • Wedding events with both the ceremony and reception at the Rittling Conference Center are scheduled for eight hours on the event date. The building will open two hours prior to the start time of the wedding and close six hours after the start time. Additional rehearsal, setup or cleanup time may be requested through the Conference Center coordinator, and is invoiced at an additional rate.
  • Clients incur an additional fee of $50 per half hour should the event exceed the maximum allowable time.
  • A dance floor is available for rental at an additional fee of:
    • $500 - 15 X 15 (accommodates 50 dancers)
    • $800 - 21 X 21 (accommodates 75 dancers)
  • The role of the Conference Center coordinator is to ensure that the bride and groom, their respective wedding parties and invited guests enjoy a worry-free event and that guests adhere to the policies and procedures of the Rittling Conference Center. The coordinator also ensures that the facility is set according to specifications and coordinates with catering and outside vendors on set-up and breakdown times. However, the bride and groom are required to have a wedding coordinator, who will, in consultation with the Conference Center coordinator, direct the wedding party during rehearsal, ceremony and reception.
