How accessible is the farm?
We are a farm and nothing is paved. Our driveway is 1/2 mile long and is gravel so it can oftentimes be a little bumpy. The parking area is hard-packed grass making it an easy and beautiful walk to the wedding tree located behind the home. There is a short, but beautiful, walk to get to from the parking to the ceremony site. If there are handicap guests we are more than happy to shuttle them to the ceremony site with our farm cart by our venue staff, we ask that this be made known to us prior to the event with names of who needs assistance. The Rustic Lounge does not have a ramp but the outdoor area is flat and easy to get around. Bathrooms are rustic and there is one small step up to the restroom area.
All weddings and events require a nonrefundable deposit. Any payment or installments made are nonrefundable. If your wedding is canceled within 8 months of the contracted date, any remaining payments are excused.
How long can we be on property?
If booking a wedding without accommodations, your rental is 10 hours long. 3 hours of setup and getting ready in the suites, 1 hour for the ceremony, 1 hour for cocktail hour, 3.5 hours for the reception and 1.5 hours for clean up. Bar service is for 3.5 hours and the bridal party is allowed on the property 3 hours before ceremony time.. All other guests aside from immediate family and bridal party are asked not to arrive until 45 minutes before the ceremony starts.
Do we need a planner or coordinator?
Yes! And here is why! We want your day to be as perfect as possible and we want you and your family to remember how seamless your wedding day was. With a coordinator, it takes the burden and stress off of you and your immediate family. When booking A La Carte venue option, a coordinator or planner is required.
