The only required vendor is the caterer. Please check out our reviews on The Knot and Wedding Wire. We offer a variety of delicious menu options, with your choice of buffet or plated.

No problem at all! You will provide a final count 3 weeks before your wedding. This includes any kids’ meals or any guests with specific dietary restrictions.

Absolutely! The atrium, a temperature-controlled, permanent space attached to the barn, is the ideal back-up plan. Your wedding coordinator will then incorporate your décor into the new space to ensure your vision comes to life..

Not at all. Let our expert wedding coordinators and trained banquet staff take the lead. We will do what we can to host your beautiful garden ceremony.
