What payment plans do you offer?
We ask for a 10% down payment with every signed contract. A second payment of 40% is due 90 days before your event. The third and final payment (50% of total cost) is due 30 days before your event. Should you need a different payment plan, we may make an exception depending on your situation.
How do I pay?
We accept all forms of payment with the exception of Venmo. Most payments are made online via Weven.
Do I have to choose from specific vendors for my wedding?
At this time, we have a preferred vendors list. We highly recommend all of our preferred vendors; however, they are not exclusive. We only ask that the vendors of your choosing provide a COI (Certification of Insurance).
What is your caterer policy?
All caterers must show proof of insurance 20 days prior to event. Caterers are required to clean up the kitchen once their serving duties are finished.
What is your alcohol policy?
We only allow beer, wine, and champagne for toasts. No liquor-based drinks are allowed to be served at our venue. All bartenders need to show proof of liability insurance 30 days before event.
We do not allow guests or bride and groom to bring in outside alcohol.
If alcohol is served, we require that an off-duty police officer is hired for the event. We include this cost in the total payment and make arrangements for you.
Do you provide a wedding coordinator?
Not at this time. We do require that all events have a contact person for the day-of. We highly encourage our brides to hire a day-of coordinator. Planning a wedding is hard work and a wedding coordinator does a great job of relieving you of any stress the day of your wedding.
Does Piney Grove Ranch set up and tear down?
Our staff will be present during your wedding day to help in whatever way possible. However, we cannot promise that we will do all the set-up and tear down. Every bride has a different vision and we do not want to interfere with that! We will be your coordinator's "right-hand man", and support you in whatever way we are able to.
Do we need to clean up?
We simply ask that all chairs and tables get stacked at the end of the table and all trash is disposed of in our dumpster. Piney Grove Ranch will assist in taking out the trash throughout the day, cleaning up any spills, shuttling your guests, and restocking bathrooms.
Do we need to hire a shuttle for our guests?
No - we got you covered! Our golf cart comfortably seats up to 6 guests. Our staff will actively assist your guests in getting from one place to another.
Do we need to purchase wedding insurance?
Yes, each of our clients need to hold a general liability one-day million dollar insurance policy for the day of the wedding. We use Nuptial Risk as our exclusive insurance vendor and they make this process very simple to follow. The cost is typically around $200-250.
How many weddings will be held at Piney Grove Ranch at a time?
Yours and yours only. We don't want you to have to worry about having any unnecessary distractions on your special day.
Does your venue provide overnight accommodations?
Not at this time. We are happy to point you to some nice hotels and Airbnbs within 20 minutes of our venue.
Do you provide glasses/plates/silverware?
We do not. However, we have recommendations on where to rent these items from.
Do you provide table linens?
We provide up to 18 table linens per event. Any more are at extra cost to you at $20/tablecloth but we make arrangements to have them clean and pressed and ready to go.
Do you allow candles?
We only allow candles that are floating in water or in a container approved by a staff member. This is to keep the fire risk at minimum, and to protect our table linens from dripping wax.
Is Piney Grove Ranch wheelchair accessible?
All of our indoor spaces are easily accessible for your handicapped guests. For outdoor spaces, we are happy to use our venue golf cart to transport your guests to your ceremony space and back to the barn for your reception.
How can I set up a tour at Piney Grove Ranch?
