Frequently Asked Questions
How do I reserve my date?
Send us an email to email@example.com. If your date is available, a deposit of 50% of the rental fee is due along with a completely filled out contract to secure your reservation. We also require a credit card on file for security.
When is my rental fee due?
You may pay your rental fee at any time leading up to your event, with the total amount due in full at least 30 days prior to your event.
Why do you need my credit card on file?
This is simply a security measure to ensure no damages occur to our historic building. In the unlikely event that damages do occur, we will bill your credit card for the amount due.
Will I have exclusive use
of the venue?
Yes! We only host one event per day at each venue, so you don’t have to worry about bumping into any other party.
How long do we have access to the venue?
You will have access to the venue from 8am until 12am the day of your event. If you would like to come in a little earlier in the morning to set up, please reach out to us before your event and we may be able to work something out.
Can I set up the day before?
If you would like to set the venue up the night before your Saturday event and eliminate some day-of stress, we are happy to offer a 50% discount for the Friday before as long as it is available. This discount is not available for any other event days.
Who cleans up afterwards?
You do! You are 100% responsible for all set up and tear down for your event. When you leave at the end of the night, the facility needs to be completely reset, cleaned, and trash removed from the premises. If you would rather not handle cleaning up, we can take care of it for you for an additional fee.
Can I use my own vendors?
Of course! We have a list of respected vendors but have no restrictions on any you would like to use.
Do you allow candles?
We allow candles as long as they are completely enclosed within a votive of some sort.
Are tables and chairs included? What style are they?
Yes! We include tables and chairs for up to 200 guests. The chairs are mahogany premium garden style, and the tables are 6′ x 2.5′ folding banquet style.
Where do my guests park?
There is plenty of on-site and free street parking available for your party.
What happens if I need
You need to submit a written letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
detailing your reasons for cancelling with us at least 180 days before your event date, otherwise you forfeit the first half of your venue rental payment.
Can I hang things on
You may hang things on the walls as long as they do not puncture or damage the walls in anyway. No thumbtacks, nails, or tape that will peel the paint off upon removal. We highly recommend the use of Command strips.
Is there a space for me to
Yes! There is a spacious and beautiful dressing suite for you to get ready in. There is one dressing suite on location included with the venue rental, as well as an Airbnb located directly above the venue you may choose to reserve as well! Check out The Loft here.
Should I get event insurance?
Getting insurance for your event is easy and we highly recommend it. This insurance typically also covers your other vendors! If you’re interested in learning more, check out this great article for more information on the matter: Wedding Insurance
Can I cook food in
No. You may use the available stove to warm pre-cooked food, but are not allowed to prepare food from scratch under any circumstances.
Is there a day-of coordinator?
No. You will be responsible for setting up, coordinating, and tearing down your entire event. If you would like styling, set up, and/or teardown assistance, please contact us directly for information on what we offer in regards to this.
Do you offer any
Yes! We offer many additional services and rental items like linens, benches and backdrops that you may choose to add to your event day. Please fill out our contact form to receive a PDF that outlines these services in more detail.
Are there any hidden fees I need to be aware of?
Nope! Outside of the security deposit and rental fee, there are NO additional fees that are going to pop up on you. It is completely up to you if you would like to add on any extra services or rental items through us for your event.
