No, we only provide what is included in our packages but can recommend some amazing local vendors for you to pick from.

Yes, sparklers are allowed outside the barn.

Yes.  Event Insurance protects everyone in case something big or little happens while the venue is being used for your event.  Per our booking agreement this is the coverage required:

A $1,000,000 per occurrence / $2,000,000 total general event liability policy must be obtained for the entire rental weekend of the event by the Client.  In addition, $1,000,000 in damage to the rented premises needs to be added in case of a fire.  The policy must be purchased and a copy of the binder sent to the Provider at least 2 weeks prior to the event. 

Please view our availability calendar.

The only vendor required to be used from our list is bartending.  All other vendors options are flexible.  All caterers must be licensed and insured.

In order to lock in a date, you will need to sign our booking agreement which is sent and signed electronically via Honeybook and put down a 25% deposit.  The remaining payment schedule looks like:

25% due at the one-year mark (prior to event)

25% due at the 6-month mark

final 25% due at the 2-month mark

If you are booking less than a year in advance -a 50% deposit will be due at booking instead of 25% unless another agreement is made.  If you would prefer a different payment schedule please let us know and we are happy to help accommodate if possible.  

We are unfortunately unable to hold dates for people.  Once a contract is issued, you have 7 days to sign, or your date opens back up.

You can tour the property by appointment.

There are 4 hotels located just 10 minutes away from the venue in Cambridge MD  – The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay,  Days Inn, Comfort Inn & Suites and Holiday Inn Express.  Additional there are many very nice Air B&B’s locally. 

You will have a few options in case of rain.  You can either get married inside the barn in front of the beautiful windows and barn doors in the front of the barn or you can rent a tent from a local rental company and place it over the 50×60 concrete patio off the side of the barn.  Renting a tent would still allow you to utilize the outdoor space in case of rain.  Our property is professionally graded and maintained so water will drain perfectly during heavy rain.  Please note – your tent must be cleaned up by the end of your rental period or by 9am the following day for single day rentals.

No.  We do not have the facilities to launder linens so these will have to be purchased or rented from a local rental company. 

We accept cash, check, credit cards, and bank transfers.  Credit cards and bank transfers are accepted right through the Honeybook app.  Credit card transactions will incur a 3% service charge which will be billed as a final invoice after all payments are made.  All other payment forms do not incur any service charges/ fees.

There will be a head staff member on site the day of your event during the specified time.  If you would like a staff member present longer this can be added on as an additional service.  You will always have an emergency contact number to reach someone if needed during times when no staff member is present.

3-6 months prior to your event will sit down in person or via phone and discuss floorplan options and table choices and come up with a floorplan that will work for your headcount and your vision.  There will always be options and you will be able to select your final layout.  Final layout and headcount just need to be confirmed two weeks prior to your event.

Safety is our biggest priority so if you or a guest feels the need to leave a vehicle and catch a ride with someone else that is 100% allowed. 

Everything will need to be removed by the end of your rental period.  Single day rentals have until 9am the following day to have rentals picked up.  You will need to coordinate this with your rental company.

Clean up on your end consists of removing all your belongings and decorations, florals, table linens, trash from tables etc.  We will do all  the deep cleaning and trash removal!

We don’t want any damage to the barn, so we don’t allow nails to secure decor.  We recommend clear Command hooks for hanging decor.
