You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers!

How does catering work?

Couples that book with us are responsible for finding their own caterer. We do have an extensive list of preferred venders to get couples started on their hunt for the catering company that best fits their wedding needs.

How does décor work?

Wedding couples are encouraged to get as creative as they want. We do offer come add-ons such as the drapery that we can put in place but we also work with couples to create their own looks to make their day special for them.

What is the rain plan?

There’s always a rainy-day plan. Often it’s as simple as moving the ceremony under the tent or into the barn. We are well versed in all of the above, and can help make for a smooth and seamless transition.

What is my relationship to the featured wedding venue? I am always transparent with my audience. This venue was hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were each charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
