COVID-19 Wedding Policy

Ashland remains committed to providing a safe, socially distanced wedding venue for all couples. With our ample grounds, you can be sure to find a beautiful setting for your special day.

Though we remain open for weddings, we will always abide by the current recommendations for gatherings from the Governor and the CDC. As with all re-opening plans, this may be subject to change depending on if Kentucky experiences a spike in cases. Currently and for the foreseeable future, here are the guidelines we will be enforcing:

  • All gatherings must be no more than 10 people.  50 person gatherings are slated for July 1st assuming everything goes to plan. Social distancing will still be in effect regardless of group size.
  • All guests who do not live in the same quarantine household must remain a minimum of six feet away from other guests at all times. This includes for any photos taken at the event. The officiant also needs to remain at least six feet away from the couple. The couple do not have to be six feet away from each other.
  • Guests do not have to wear masks if they remain six feet apart from all other guests at all times. If they believe they will be within six feet of another guest not from their household for any reason, then they should wear a mask.

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to Kate Heil if you have any questions or would like to book. We know this most likely isn’t the ideal wedding situation for anyone, but we want to provide a beautiful, safe setting for our couples no matter the circumstances.
