No, it is not. In these unprecedented times, we strive to work with you and find an alternative option.
Single Day rental access times are 9AM-11PM. If having an extra day to decorate and cleanup is important to you, please consider our Full Weekend rental package.
No we do not. Please ask your officiant or DJ to provide those items. We do have outside power around the barn and can run electrical to the outdoor chapel.
Although we love the look of a real flame, we do not allow any open flame candles of any kind. We've been so impressed by So many real looking LED candles that have hit the market for an alternative!
We do. We have great recommendations for you to fit your budge. They play a huge role in your day and making sure every thing goes as planned, events stay on time, vendor management, decorating, cleanup and so much more! Our goal as the venue is to do everything possible to help your day go smoothly and ensure your day is as stress-free as possible! Although we understand you have many friends or family members that would love to have that role for the day, we still require someone that is experienced or that we have worked with in the past.
Yes, please choose one from our preferred list, found HERE. Initially we allowed all outside catering because a lot of venues don't and we didn't understand why! The truth is, after numerous weddings allowing any caterer under the sun to come through our door, we realized that not a workable business model if quality food and a quality experience is important to our couples and their guests. Some caterers were amazing, but some were clearly in it for the money and not the couple (like when we asked, do you help with XYZ and the caterer responded "they didn't pay for that." We've had issues with caterers showing up hours late and unprepared. We had caterers run out of food. We had caterers who routinely sent three 16 years olds to be the event staff. We had caterers who aren't as experienced with large events. We selected the caterers on our list because they are familiar with our venue, have shown to us that they can provide good food, and good service on your big day! (If you have your heart set on a caterer that is not on our list, please reach out for approval on a different one.
Unlike many venues, White Willow Farms has enough indoor space to allow for a ceremony space as a back up in case of rain. This means that in the case of inclement weather the venue doesn't have to be "flipped" from your ceremony to the reception. Reception tables are all available to be setup prior to the ceremony and need not be moved in case of rain. Guests sit cabaret style around their tables. This ensures a smooth transition into the reception and makes the decision to bring a ceremony inside (or not) much less stressful. Please refer to our floor plans under DETAILS>RESOURCES.
No we do not. The safety of you and your guests is our first priority. We are happy to provide other creative suggestions for you on your big day!
