Yes. We require you use a bartending company that is insured and provides a bartender. This bartender will ensure that all North Carolina laws are being enforced and followed.
Beer and wine only do not require a permit. If you choose to serve a signature cocktail or two that has liquor in it, a permit is required.
No glass beer bottles.
Our weekend packages are designed for 150 guests or less.
We require a $1,000 non-refundable deposit to reserve your date.
The security deposit is a separate $500 deposit. After your event is complete we will do a walk through and if there are no damages we will refund the security deposit by check. If there are any discrepancies we will reach out immediately.
Once you pay the deposit to reserve your date:
If you are within one year of your event at 9 months 50% of the remaining balance is due and 90 days before your event the final payment is due.
If you book further out then one year we split the first 50% payment into two 25% payments. Payments schedules vary based on your booking date.
We only require that your payments are made 9 months and 90 days before your event date. However, if you would like to make additional payments throughout you are more than welcome to do so. Some brides find that easier when budgeting and as we have mentioned before we are in the business of trying to make it all a little easier.
We accept cash, check, money order or cashiers check.
We do allow for family portraits and bridal portraits to made at the venue. Click the link to find out more.
There are several hotel options available in surrounding towns as close as 15 miles.
There are two airbnb homes in the area. One house is adjacent to the venue and the other is
just 3 minutes away. Click the links for details about the homes and to book.
If you elect a one day rental a weekday rehearsal time could be added the week prior based on the availability of the venue. We do see where a lot of couples rehearse just a few hours before the ceremony. No special trips to the venue ahead of time and the bride just stays in hair and makeup. Several options we can discuss.
Two day rentals can host their rehearsal dinner on-site. In fact a lot of couples prefer to have dinner on-site because everyone is already in the same spot. This includes: 4 round tables with linens, 32 chairs, 1 buffet table with linen, 1 beverage table and trash removal.
Yes, we do provide white linens, however if you prefer a color and we cannot accommodate the request we can recommend a rental company to contact.
Yes, there are rental companies nearby that rent everything you could need.
We only rent the space to one couple per day. Which means you get our staffs full attention for the day.
All pets do require approval and if approved come with some stipulations.
Example - you may want your dog to be a part of the celebration. If approved the dog could be part of the ceremony and photos but must remain on a leash and must have a designated caretaker that is not the bride or groom. Pets are not allowed inside our buildings. We only allow service dogs to be inside the buildings.
Yes, we have a prep kitchen available for your caterer to use as a setup area. It includes a refrigerator, a large commercial 3 compartment sink and countertop space.
We do allow you to use any vendor you want including any caterer. We do require that your caterer name the venue as additionally insured for the day and provide us with that documentation. We also require that your caterer sets up the buffet, maintains and cleanups everything up. If you hire a caterer that does not provide those services you will be required to hire additional venue staffing to see about those responsibilities.
We have parking attendants greeting your guests as soon as they arrive on the property. There is a large grassy area near the entrance with a plank fence and we start parking there. All guests are parked so that they can leave with ease whenever they are ready and there is plenty of lighting if guests are leaving after dark.
Primarily our seating is made up of round tables that seat 8 guests. We do have some 6' and 8' rectangular tables that are used for buffet tables, gift tables, bridal party seating, etc.
We like to joke that it only rains when we aren't having events around here, but realistically that is just not the case. In the event it rains or has rained a tremendous amount we just move the festivities inside the barn. The barn does lend itself to be a great backdrop and most importantly it doesn't cost you anything extra. This will become a shared space that will host the ceremony and the reception. We do have the back porch to the suites and the barn available for your guests to have a cocktail hour while you finish up photos and our staff will move and adjust furniture for the reception. If you have 100 guests or less we can set the ceremony site up on the back porch of the barn. This allows you to still have the view as your background.
Actually it does change the price. We offer up to a $500 discount if you do not have a ceremony at the venue and you are only using the grounds for your reception. Some dates do not qualify for the discount. Inquire for details.
