Q. What is the maximum occupancy for the Barn? A. The 2,400 square foot Barn can comfortably accommodate up to 100 guests. Please contact us for additional details for weddings over 100 guests.
Q. Can we hold our ceremony on site as well? Rehearsal dinner? A. Yes! There are areas on the property ideal for an outdoor ceremony, or you may elect to hold your ceremony in the barn. Our rental includes additional time the evening before your event to host your Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner, if desired.
Q. Do you cater? A. No. As we like to tell our couples, treat the barn the same as you would a tent. All catering, restroom facilities, and other amenities are to be arranged separately with the couple and the vendor.
Q: What vendors are we allowed to use? A: You are allowed to use any vendor you wish as long as they are adequately insured and licensed and proof of such is provided in accordance with the Rental Agreement. We highly recommend the services of a professional event coordinator to ensure your event runs smoothly, as we simply provide the space for celebration. We also strongly recommend making group transportation services available to your guests.
Q. Can we tour the property? A. Yes! But it is important to note that because Rooted Farmstead is located on a privately owned lane and the owners live on the property, visits are strictly by appointment only. Please contact us to schedule a mutually agreeable time for a guided tour.
Q. Does Rooted Farmstead have restroom facilities? A. No. Portable restroom facilities are the responsibility of the renters.
Q. Does your facility have water and/or a kitchen facility? A. No, the Barn does not have a kitchen facility nor potable water. Your caterer and bartender will be required to bring their own potable water, ice and means for keeping food and beverages at appropriate temperatures. Food trucks and BBQ-style caterers are ideal.
Q. Do you offer a bridal suite or place where we can get dressed on-site? A. No; however, there are a number of local hotels and bed and breakfasts which can fill this need. RVs and campers are also permitted with prior arrangement to serve as space to get ready on site.
Q. What if it rains? A. We recommend to make arrangements for a tent as backup or prepare a plan to transition the Barn from ceremony to reception.
Q. We're ready! What's required to secure our date? A. We require a signed Rental Agreement and $500 Security Deposit to secure the date. Fifty (50%) of the Rental Fee must be received no later than 180 days prior to the scheduled event. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the scheduled date.
Please refer to the Rental Agreement for details on all terms and conditions.
