Planning Questions

What time will I have access to the venue to decorate? 

  • You will have access to the venue at the time listed on your contract, not earlier. Please plan accordingly. 

Do you include a "Day of Event Coordinator?"

What time do you suggest we start the ceremony? 

  • We suggest starting your wedding ceremony at 5:00pm. 

How will the tables and chairs be arranged for my sized event? 

  • Your Day of Event Coordinator can help you determine your set up or contact us before the event and we can discuss a specific arrangement.

If we choose the one day option, will we be able to access the location early to rehearse our ceremony?

  • If you elect the one day rental, our venue will likely be reserved by another couple the night before. For that reason, you can plan to have a rehearsal the morning of your ceremony or you can do a rehearsal at one of our monthly open houses. 

Can we have fireworks on the property? 

  • Fireworks are not permitted. Sparklers are allowed if you get permission from Jessica or Felicia. They can only be allowed along the driveway and all of the used sparklers must be places in the specified sand filled container. We don't want to scare the neighbors and we want to keep the fire department happy. 

Can vehicles be left overnight? 

  • Yes, we want everyone to be responsible and make it home safely. The gate code will be set to change at 10am the next day so we ask for your car to be picked up by then. 

What time does the music need to end? 

  • Music must conclude by 10 p.m. 

What time does all of the vendors, guests, and decor need to be off the property and cleaned up? 

  • Everything needs to be off the property and cleaned up by 10:30 p.m.

Can vendors/ rental companies drop off or pick up items outside of the rental period? 

  • The gate opens at 9am the day of your event. Please advise your vendors of your time permitted on the property. 

Are candles allowed? 

  • Yes, candles are allowed as long as the flame is completely contained in a candle holder. Hanging candles will not be allowed for safety reasons. 

Is it possible to seat 9 at a table? 

  • In a pinch, yes if one is a child, but we wouldn't recommend it for your guests comfort. 

How far in advance do you need a final headcount? 

  • One week 

How do I obtain a marriage license? 

  • Go to the Mesa County Central Service Building located at 200 S Spruce Street. Both the bride and the groom must go and you will need your social security number and drivers licenses. You must be there before 4p.m. and it is $30 cash only. 

Setup and Day of Event Questions

Are outside snacks and trays permitted? 

  • Yes, you can bring food and drinks into the venue, bridal suite, groom's lounge, and couples retreat as long as you clean up after you are finished. 

What is the event clean up process? 

  • There will be several trashcans located around the venue. There will be a trash trailer in the back of the venue to put closed trash bags in as your event is happening. Either your day of event coordinator will help with this or you will need to assign someone specific to help with trash. 

Can we nail decorations to the walls or hang things like streamers or lanterns from the ceiling? 

  • The ceilings are high ceilings and not reachable with a reasonable ladder. We do request holes not be placed in the walls. If you have a special request please talk to Jessica or Felicia.
