Why Taylor Pavilion?

  • Your ceremony could be beachfront or lakefront
  • Located directly on the beach
  • Panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean
  • Open air deck on beach for cocktail hour
  • Spacious gazebo on Silver Lake
  • Flexible event design (Make this already-iconic venue your own!)


We can host events daily throughout the year. Our “peak season” when the Cocktail Hour can be hosted outside, along with the ceremony – is May through October. Please contact us to discuss available dates. 

We have been hosting events since the facility opened in Spring 2017.

There are two great onsite ceremony options, which are both outdoors. The Taylor Pavilion is located directly on the beach with steps just outside of the Cocktail Hour space leading right to the sand. The other option would be the utilization of the gazebo directly across the street, which overlooks a beautiful lake.

There is a 5-hour reception timeframe from Cocktail Hour through Reception.

The facility for your event (no other events would be occurring the same time), the ocean view reception space, outdoor cocktail hour boardwalk space, and the ceremony site. We also provide full service staff, including a Bridal Attendant for the day-of and an experienced Event Planner to help you along the way in your wedding planning.

Merri-Makers has sole access to the full kitchen that we built in the building.

Our experienced event planning team will help you every step of the way to create the wedding of your dreams, as we will coordinate each and every detail– from flowers to your photographer, we’ve got you covered. When you book with Merri-Makers, we take care of your every need, including researching and booking the right vendors!
