Q: Can we bring our own alcohol?
A: Yes! You can choose from a list of approved bartending services, ranging in hourly bartending where you can stock your own bar to full service or cash bar.
Q: Do you allow outside catering?
A: Yes, we welcome the insured and full-service caterer of your choice. We will also provide a catering list of our tried + true favorites, along with other vendor recommendations!
Q: Are food trucks allowed?
A: Yes! We can accommodate up to three food trucks in our courtyard.
Q: What is the max capacity?
A: 180 can be seated comfortably inside and on the outdoor ceremony benches.
Q: Is the barn air conditioned/heated?
A: The barn is an open-air venue and is cooled with fans and heated with patio heaters. The bridal suite, bathrooms and kitchen have central air and heat. Our blanket station can be set up on the cooler days.
Q: What if it rains?
A: We have had some beautiful indoor ceremonies inside the barn. We can easily adjust your layout with just an hour's notice prior to ceremony, although your DJ and florist may require a longer notice. The covered patio gives your guests room to move and mingle and still stay dry even on rainy days.
Q: How do we save our date?
A signed contract with a 25% payment + a $500 refundable security deposit is required to hold your date. The security deposit will be fully refunded within 30 days following your event as long as there are no damages.
Q: What forms of payment do you accept?
A: We can accept cash, check or credit card. Please note there is a 3.5% convenience fee on credit card transactions.
Q: Are there any other required costs in addition to the venue rental?
A: The only other item we require for renters is event insurance, which typically runs $99-125 and is due two weeks before your event. We'll provide a link to purchase online, or you can go through your renter's/homeowner's insurance.
Q: What are the roles of the venue staff before and during our event?
A: Our venue manager or coordinator will work with you to personalize your layout so that the day of your event all tables and chairs are in place when you arrive. As your guests arrive we'll help direct parking and assist with a golf cart if needed. During your event we'll clean up spills, take out the trash, make sure bathrooms are stocked, turn on the fire pit, etc. While we'll do our best to handle any other issues that pop up, we recommend having an event planner/coordinator so that you and your loved ones are able to relax and fully enjoy your day.
Q: Can I have my dog/horse/alpaca/etc. in my wedding ceremony?
A: Yes! The beauty of farm life is that animals are welcome to be a part of your ceremony! However, please keep your fur or feathered friend on a leash and have someone take them home or to a safe place off site before the reception begins.
"The inside of the barn has so much charm, I didn't feel the need to incorporate many decorations because the barn was enough. My wedding day was hands down my best day ever, and I owe much of that to Tobacco Barn Farm. If I could do it over again, I'd choose them again and again."
