2021 MAJOR EVENT HOSTING:  What's Included when we host your wedding, concert, corporate event, show or other major event at Heart of Rock Farm?

* Wedding Pavilion with rustic bench seating for your ceremony, weather permitting.  The Pavilion faces Mt. Hood and frames the mountain between its posts.

* Table Seating (tables and chairs) for up to 150 people in the warmer months or 120 in the off-season (Nov-Apr).  No need to set up tables & chairs or take them down afterward (unless some are used outdoors).  We’ll set them up for you before you arrive.

* Access to our huge supply of vintage/rustic props and decor. 

* Catering prep area (not a full kitchen).  Hire a caterer or choose to self-cater.

* Huge dance floor:  Up to 28-ft x 55-ft (1,540 sq ft).  (The size of the dance floor depends upon the number of tables needed.)

* If your photographer is brave, we can put him/her 34 feet in the air for a group shot of your wedding party and guests (via Long Tall Sally, our crane truck).  (Weather permitting.) 

* Planning Assistance:  We help you along the way.  After working though our planning worksheets and "Helpful Hints" lists, you'll meet with our Venue Coordinator to:
   -- budget your on-site time and create a venue-oriented Day-Of timeline,
   -- plan for your outside vendors' needs, 
   -- plan the best use of venue space and consider decorating options, and

   -- choose rustic props from our warehouse to use in your decor plan, especially for your centerpieces.  

* On-site attendant during rehearsal and throughout the event.

* We don’t require that you use specific vendors (catering, florals, music, photography, etc).  Choose your own or we can recommend pros who’ve worked here before and provided an excellent service. 

* We only host one major event per weekend, so in many cases you have the option of scheduling part of your set-up time on the same day as rehearsal.

* The barn is insulated and heated, perfect for off-season weddings.  For comfort during hot weather, we have excellent wind flow throughout the building, which formerly served as a drying barn.  Large overhead circulating fans draw the heat up and out in the summer or push it back down during the winter.   

* Included with the 12-hour package:  A personalized gift from Rustic Impressions, etched with your names and wedding date.

(For parties, dances, or other small-scale events that don't require this level of support, see our Smaller Events page.)

Wedding & Major Event Hosting Rates

For WEDDINGS we recommend the 12-hour package.  For most couples that allows enough time for rehearsal (on a different date), set-up & decorating, photos, the event itself, and clean-up.  However, if you NEED more than 12 (because of elaborate decorating plans or on-site barbecuing, for example), we offer a really good rate on additional time.

COVID-19 Update

We're still hanging in there!  By working closely with our current batch of amazing wedding couples and keeping a sharp eye on the future, we're confident Heart of Rock Farm will survive these "interesting" times. 

Wedding planning is a major challenge for all right now, but we've got to move forward with confidence.  For planning purposes, we're anticipating the possible need to reschedule our early-summer weddings for 2021, which will mean fewer available dates next year unless things change; but at this point our current clients have to be our priority. 

* Current guidelines limit events to 25 people with adequate space for social distancing, so we're working with our couples to reschedule the near-term events that exceed those numbers. 

* We ARE booking for 2021...(continued on back)


 * We ARE booking for 2021 on a limited basis and still conducting abreviated (or virtual) tours by appointment.  Limit of 2 adult participants of the same household for the on-site tour, but you're welcome to use Facetime or another program to include others virtually.  We're practicing appropriate safety precautions before, during and after visits. 

* Planning meetings for current clients can be by phone, with a full walk-through to finalize details later when things ease up.

* Barn Dances are on hold until this winter.

* We're always available by email, phone or text.  If you have a question, please don't hesitate!

Hang in there folks.  We'll get through this together!
