How many tables do you provide and what size linens do they need?
Do you provide linens?
We have 14 of our homemade farmhouse tables (36" x 8 ft - except one is 7 ft, and they are 31" tall) so they seat 138. These are usually left natural or with a runner if you prefer. Or you can cover with a tablecloth - it's all up to you and your vision of your special day.
We have 12 of the 48" round tables which seat 4-6.
For these 108" round tablecloths will blouse the floor, so the next smaller size might just touch the floor and do the trick if you want them just touching the floor.
When working on your floor plan, if you use all 12 round and all 14 farmhouse plan on having 5 at each round table to equal the 200 that we provide chairs for.
We have 10 of the bistro/high boy tables. These are 32" diameter and 44" tall.
For these you can use 130" which allows you to tie them with ribbon or burlap and blouse them above and below for that hour glass shape.
We have a new table that can be used for gifts or a memorial table, it is 80 1/2" long by 18" wide and 34" tall.
The sweetheart table, buffet, cake table, gift/memorial table and other pieces are included.
We don't provide linens since you can purchase them online for about $5 each and pick the color of your choice.
How many chairs do you provide?
We have 200 indoor beautiful wooden cross back chairs. If you have more than 200
guests attending you can rent extra tables and chairs for up to 315 which is our max based on our Certificate of Occupancy.
For your outdoor chairs or extra indoor tables and chairs, our preferred vendors are Me, Him and Them Tents and More or Rental Concepts or you can pick your own
vendor, or borrow from your church or business.
Both vendors offer additional items that you may want to rent for your special event. Check out Me and Them's site for items and prices.
How many people does your venue allow?
Our Certificate of Occupancy states we can have 315 in the big barn. We provide tables and indoor chairs for 200 since events larger than this are rare for us. If your event will have more than 200 you would need to rent the extra tables and chairs needed.
What items are included in your package?
The fairy lights, cafe lights, sound system, and drapes are included.
The pole barn with its beautiful cafe lights and sound system is included. It is 52 ft wide by 57ft long and can hold appx 300 guests comfortably.
We have 63 beautiful acres for your engagement session and pictures on your wedding day. We also hope you will come back for pictures as your family grows! :)
We have 6 patio heaters for use in the cooler weather. We have 3 oscillating fans, 2 huge ceiling fans and 3 exhaust fans to help circulate the breezes we have here.
We have numerous props scattered around the property that are wonderful in your pictures! Old gates, our old door entryway, a rope swing in one of our oak trees, the hand-built bridge over our river rock stream, etc.
The 122 yr old white barn up front is a perfect backdrop for pictures! We don't allow anyone inside.
We have 2 downed trees that provide a perfect perch in pictures! One is filled with beautiful flowers.
For the guys, we have Direct TV sports package in their room so they can keep up with the score on that special day. It can also feed through to our projection system so you can view the game during the reception - or play a slideshow that you create.
We have 3 whiskey barrel stations for food and/or drinks and a pallet bar for your drinks or to decorate and use as you see fit.
We have round wooden slabs perfect for centerpieces.

We have 2 antique wagons which are great in pictures. One inside for your use and one outside for pictures or to collect your gifts.

We just added a projector and screen so that you can have a slide show going of your engagement pictures or the football game if you prefer.
Is there a deposit?
When are payments due? Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes. We require a $1000 retainer which is nonrefundable since we will remove that date from our availability and reserve it for your special day. You can make payments or pay the remaining balance 90 days prior to your event - whichever is easier for you. We collect a refundable security deposit in case of damage or cleaning needed - it is due at the 90 day mark.
Do I need to schedule a tour or can I just stop by?
We ask that youschedule a tour so that we can be ready and devoted to you. We live and work on the property and it is a working farm so sometimes we are out in the fields and/or in messy work clothes. We are very flexible and try to accommodate your schedule so please click here for info and/or to schedule a tour.
What happens in case of rain or bad weather?
We are blessed with several options. We can still use the pole barn if it rains - if that is your preference. If not, we can move your event into the big barn. We have done both with great results. With our areas all being only a few steps apart, it hasn't been a problem.
What if we have our ceremony at our church or
another location - does your price change?
We prefer to be completely devoted to our clients, so we only schedule one event per day, so our price stays the same whether you choose to have your ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or all of them here. The venue is yours for the day.
Do you allow dogs to participate in our ceremony?
Yes, we have actually already had a couple's dog be the ring bearer. It was so sweet! Our pets are often a big part of our family, so we don't want to exclude them. They do need to remain on a leash and have someone responsible for them at all times. We do ask that you clean up after them - we wouldn't want someone messing up their shoes or dress. ;)
Are candles allowed?
Yes, as long as they are in a glass container that has a bottom. We prefer LED candles or floating candles in water, if possible, to prevent wax from getting on our tables and floor - it's tough to get up.
Do you allow sparkler sendoffs?
Yes, they need to be wedding sparklers which have less risk of causing a fire and we need to know ahead so we can run the sprinklers before the event to reduce the fire risk if the weather has been very dry.
Do you allow smoking?
Yes, at our patio ONLY - not in the parking area or close to the barn. This is a barn with an increased risk for fires, so we have one designated area and ask our clients to honor that. We also ask you to place the butts in our butt can which has sand in it. We want to keep the grounds looking lovely.
