* 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, and
-- draft a written decorating plan. (We'll type it up and send it to you.)
* 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 some early 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 Simple Events page.)
