Channels have the patio area for photo. you can do large groups from the window and if its a sunny day you can use under the tree line which gives shade and protection from light rain. theres also the option in the winter to use the patio with the fountain in the background.

The tree line is good as it gives outside photo options but with protection.Theres little hidden areas by the lodge we use for the bride and groom.theres lots of trees at channels which w use for couples photos and trees are the best natural shade from the rain.
