Also, please pick up the tables and chairs instead of dragging or rolling. Damage done or dirty items returned will be subject to a $500 fee charged on your card on file.

GROUNDS CARE: We maintain about an acre of lawns with mature landscaping. Great care is given to our yard and flower beds. You are welcome to use this maintained yard for your wedding. We provide a permanent dance floor for your use. Please be careful of placing aisle carpets down too early as they get hot and can scorch the grass and if this happens, repairs to grass will be above and beyond your fees associated with this contract. DRIVING ON THE LAWN FOR ANY REASON IS NOT ALLOWED. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY.

NOISE: Your facility is in a residential neighborhood. By choosing to host your event in a residential neighborhood means strict adherence to the quiet hours and you are responsible to “keep the neighborhood peace” by limiting music, loud talking, etc., as outlined above. If you exceed this timeframe, and a site visit is required you will be charged $500 for every site visit.
