Are there overnight accommodations nearby?

    There are several hotel options available in surrounding towns as close as 15 miles.

***Coming August 2020 lodging options will be available on-site***

Can we host our rehearsal dinner on-site?

Yes, in fact a lot of couples prefer to have dinner on-site because everyone is already in the same spot.  We do charge an additional rental fee for the tables, linen and chairs since this does require additional setup and staffing. One round table, one white linen, eight chairs with white cushions for $45.   

Do you provide linens?

 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.

Are there rental companies nearby?

Yes, there are rental companies nearby that rent everything you could need.

Will there be another wedding the same day?

We only rent the space to one couple per day.  Which means you get our staffs full attention for the day.  

Can our pet be a part of 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.

Do you have a kitchen?

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.

Can we use any caterer we want?

We do allow you to use any vendor you want including any caterer.  We do require that your caterer provide us with a copy of their catering license as well as a Certificate of Liability Insurance listing the Venue as an additional insured.  If the caterer is not licensed, then the client will be considered self-catering and will need to purchase event liability insurance.  

Where do people park?

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. There is one way in and one way out making it very easy.    

What kinds of tables do you have?

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. 


What happens if it rains?

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.

We are getting married somewhere else. Does that change the price?

Actually it does change the price.  We offer 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.
