FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can we have alcohol at our event?
What's a party without a little liquid courage? The Barn at Hamner Ridge has an alcohol catering permit. We offer a wide range of beer, wine, and select spirits for your big day. We allow you to build your own alcohol package to meet your needs. All alcohol must be served by a licensed bartender purchased through The Barn. Alcohol packages include disposable cups and napkins for your bar drinks. No outside alcohol is permitted onsite and a $500 fine will be assessed for each occurrence, no carry-out of alcohol is allowed. Host Liquor Liability must be added to your event liability insurance policy. No one under the age of 21 is allowed to consume alcohol on the premises.
Can we use the wedding professionals that we want?
YES! We encourage you to make this day your own. The team of wedding professionals is very important and we want you to feel comfortable with who you use! We love to experience new vendors and service providers. The only requirement we have is for the caterer- they must have 'Retail Food Establishment Permit' issued by the County Health Department where they are located and we need a copy of that on file. We urge you to check ratings and references for all wedding professionals or use someone that you have personal experience with or that have been recommended to you by a friend or relative.
Do you have recommended vendors?
We sure do! We have a list of preferred vendors for your special day and will send that to you when we have a fully executed contract with you. The companies on our list should cover every aspect that you will need for your special day. We have had positive personal experiences with all of the vendors listed and we know they will do a wonderful job for you.
If we don't book the 'Weekend' package, will we still get to have our rehearsal the evening before our wedding?
Absolutely! Your ceremony site will be made available to you for your rehearsal the evening before your wedding. If another event is being held (and they are using the same ceremony site you plan to), they will have preferential time slots and your rehearsal will be scheduled around their timeline. We highly recommend the Weekend Package to be able to plan and use the grounds flexibly.
What tableware is included with our rental?
With the exception to proms & hourly events- the dinnerware items available for use during the event include up to 300 dinner plates, dessert plates, and flatware (fork, spoon, and knife). We also have charger plates in gold, silver, and rose gold for your use but the number available may not be enough to accommodate your entire guest count. If you plan to have appetizers, you will need to provide disposable plates. Napkins (disposable or linen) are not provided by The Barn at Hamner Ridge.
What are we responsible for cleaning after the event?
By the end of your rental agreement time, you will need to make sure all trash is in a trash receptacle and all full bags are taken to our onsite dumpster. You will need to ensure the removal of all food from the barn. You will need to take all utilized dishes into the kitchen where all food should be scraped from the plates and they are to be placed in the provided soaking bins. Clean-up the suites and remove all personal property. Remove all personal property from the barn and your selected ceremony site, this includes decorations and any props you may have provided. We will handle removal of barn provided tablecloths, decorations, washing the dishes, sweeping, mopping, cleaning the restrooms, and moving of all tables and barn owned props.
