Heart of Rock Farm
 Services & Pricing - Wedding/Receptions & Major Event Hosting Services 


(Weddings, Receptions, Major Corporate Events, etc) :  

This is a DIY-based package, intended for the wedding couple (or event host) who is watching their budget and loves the hands-on aspects of planning an event.  This base package is oriented toward having a solid support team to help with decorating, managing the event, and cleaning up afterward.  From this base, you can add optional features and support services to elevate the day from DIY to more of a full-service event.  Start with the basics and only add what you need or want.  

What's Included when you host your wedding, reception, concert, corporate event, show or other major event at Heart of Rock Farm?

* Access to the Onion Barn Reception Hall for your event; and access to the exterior of the old red barn and other outdoor areas for photos.

* New:  8-ft glass french doors lead to a huge 1200-sf deck facing Mt. Hood.  When the weather doesn't permit outdoor activities, the floor-to-ceiling glass panels still provide a beautiful view.  

* In good weather, access to the north lawn with lots of room for lawn games and outdoor activities. 

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

* In cold weather (or if it rains on your wedding day), we’ll set up a cute semi-circular indoor chapel for the ceremony, with a heart-shaped wrought iron arch.    

* Table Seating (tables and chairs) for up to 150 people in the summer months (Jun-Sep), 120 in the cooler months (May and October), or 100 in the off-season (Nov-Apr).  (10-19 tables available.)  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.  In favorable weather, some of the tables can be placed on the deck or on the main lawn.

* Linens for our tables (tablecloths, toppers and napkins).  

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

* Catering prep area (not a full kitchen).  You have the option of working with our amazing house caterer (Flour Power Catering) at special in-house rates or hiring another licensed professional caterer.  

* Rustic wine-barrel-&-plank-top buffet table.   

* Rustic/shabby chic wine barrel-themed cake table and beautiful dessert area. 

* Harley Davidson/Rock & Roll-themed wall behind the gift area.  

* Romantic Edison-style string lights and paper lanterns are hanging from the rafters.  (See photo.)  Incorporate your own colors by replacing up to 15 of our lanterns or stick with our neutral theme.  The white lanterns include twinkling candles. 

* 10-foot bar with double-tap kegerator and two wine refrigerators.  Provide your own soft alcohol -- no corkage fees.  Local delivery of beer & cider is available. (Pre-approved OLCC server required.) 

* Two large air conditioned dressing rooms (available for weddings only).  One features a pretty Rock 'n Roll theme and is most-often used as the bride's room.  The other (also known as the "Bunk House") offers a rustic hunting lodge feel and is often used as the groom's room.   The Rock 'n Roll dressing room is available as a family privacy room during Celebrations of Life.

* 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 indoor tables needed.)

* Space for a band or DJ near the dance floor with excellent power support and good acoustics.  

* Large disco/mirror ball above the dance floor.  

* Giant lighted “LOVE” letters in the overhead display loft.

* Large screen TV for slide show. 

* In good weather, photos with Harvey, our antique 1951 2-ton flatbed hay truck. 

* Use of the fire pit, which is encircled by rustic bench seating during favorable weather.  Lap blankets are available for comfort.  Edison-style bare bulb lighting adds ambiance in the evening.

* 3-stall luxury-style bathroom trailer with porcelain fixtures, flush toilets, running water, beautiful interior, heat/air conditioning, and music. The waiting area is covered and lighted.  

* 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.) 

* Venue 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, 

   -- choose rustic props from our catelog 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.)

   ---- Additional advice and support provided as needed throughout your planning process.  This is especially helpful if you've never planned a wedding before.

* An on-site attendant is present during rehearsal and throughout the event for venue-related support.  Optional event staffing is available.

* Beginning in spring 2024, a Day-of Coordinator will be present throughout your event to keep you on track, solve problems and serve as liaison to your vendors (with the 2024 packages). 

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

* If you're using the full 12-hour package, two of those hours are scheduled on a different day for rehearsal and early setup.    

* 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.

If you're looking for a short timeframe/small guestlist option for weddings, we also offer Elopement and Mini-Wedding packages that are a considerably more full-service.  

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

Wedding & Major Event Rates
For WEDDINGS and RECEPTIONS we recommend a minumum of 8 hours, but the 12-hour package works best.  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, for example), we offer a really good rate on additional time.

(For CELEBRATIONS OF LIFE and corporate events we recommend comparing the Major Event and Simple Event inclusions to see which better suits your needs. Please call Lisa if you need help sorting though it.)

In addition:  We offer several staffing options for the set-up, clean-up and event support duties that typically fall to friends, family and the couple, making the event less DIY-oriented and more relaxing for you.  Choose only the support you need to reduce reliance on friends/family/volunteers:
* Set-up and Decorating:  Based on the plan you created with our coordinator during the planning session, our Day-of Team will help you develop a packing list, receive and inventory your decor and supplies at rehearsal, then fully set up the venue so that everything is available when you arrive.   (Setup and decorating is completed during your contracted time and does not result in additional event hours.)  
* Event Staffing:  Optional support staff are available to take on some of the routine duties that would otherwise fall to your support team, such as greeting and directing guests, bussing tables, emptying trash cans throughout the night, refilling hot and cold beverage dispensers and refreshing the ice, and handling spills, etc as they happen.  Support staff work under the direction of the Day-of Coordinator. 
* Pack up/Clean up Services:  Our event staff (under the direction of the Day-of Coordinator) will pack up your decor and other supplies at the end of the night for pickup the next day, and will complete the tasks on your cleanup checklist for you.
