Nope! At Arabella Farm we only host one wedding each day to ensure that each couple’s event is special and receives our full attention.
Unlike many venues, Arabella provides an indoor space as a backup in case of rain under roof.
Yes. There are over 50 hotels and bed and breakfast within 20 miles of the barn. Our signed brides will receive "The Bride Guides" - a series of resources that goes into detail about lots of topics, including accomodations!
We can accommodate 150 cars.
Yes! We want all of our guests to make the safest possible decisions for themselves. If you need to leave a car overnight, that is A-OK.
When the contract is signed, to continue holding the date, we require a 25% deposit. Another 25% will be due 6 months later (or halfway through your planning period, whichever comes first) and the final 50% will be due 30 days before your event. We also require a fully refundable $500 security deposit for damages to the facility or grounds (plus another $500 if alcohol will be served at the event).
Since we only host one event per day, our pricing structure remains the same whether you hold your ceremony, reception, or both onsite.
We accept cash, check, bank transfer (via Honeybook) or Venmo (@ArabellaFarm).
No, your total must be paid in full 30 days prior to the event. You are welcome to pay in small increments between your first $1,000 payment and your final payment.
350 Guests Standing. With tables, closer to 250!
58 feet wide and 98 feet long
Fireworks and sparklers are both not permitted. We don’t want to scare the animals and we want to keep the fire department happy!
Yes, candles are allowed as long as the flame is completely contained in a candle holder. Tapered candles and any type of hanging candles will not be allowed for safety reasons.
We are dog-friendly! Dogs are allowed at the ceremony and pictures! We ask that all dogs must be on a leash and someone must be responsible for them (other than the bride and groom!).
This time changes per client and will be stated in your contract. You will have access to the venue at the time listed on your contract, not earlier. Please plan accordingly!
You are free to bring command strips and fishing line to hang decor, but we ask that no additional holes are made to our walls. Our beams are very tall and not reachable by a ladder. If you are looking to add draping, a professional draping company may rent our lift to decorate the beams.
Our staff will handle all standard clean up and trash removal throughout and after the wedding reception. We ask that you remove any decorations that you brought in. We’ll take care of the rest.
A Day of Coordinator is included in our All-Inclusive, Micro, & Intimate wedding packages. Venue-only weddings are required to choose a professional coordinator (don't worry, we make it easy and have a list to choose from!).
Our All-Inclusive packages include flatware, silverware, and linens. Other packages are welcome to add-on table linens, or are welcome to bring their own!
We ask that all music is cut off one hour before your package time ends. This allows guests and vendors to pack up and depart safely.
Sure! Just talk to us about your vision and we will see if we can make it happen!
Three weeks prior to the event!
We provide 60 inch round tables that can comfortably seat 8-10 guests. We also have a limited number of straight tables, often used for your head table, gift table, etc. There are usually a few extras that can be mixed in with reception seating, but the majority of guests will be seated at round tables.
No, you are welcome to bring your own insured caterer. But our preferred vendors consistently provide excellent food and superior customer service to our clients.
It is possible to have a great meal and bar at Arabella for $35-$45 per person. More or less could be spent depending on your tastes. We can do everything from BBQ to Surf & Turf.
We do! We have an exclusive in-house bar that offers beer, wine, specialty cocktails and full liquor bars! Reach out to discuss your vision and we'll make it happen!
No, we do not have a food and beverage or guest count minimum. Many venues have minimums because they make a 10-15% commission from the caterer based on how much is spent on food and drinks. We choose NOT to make a commission to allow your food and beverage options to be as elegant or affordable as your budget allows.
Prior to the ceremony, you may have outside food or drink. After the start of your event, it is not allowed. Please, no drinks in glass bottles.
In our experience, it’s most efficient and most cost-effective for couples to work directly with the caterer. Simply book your big day with Arabella and reach out to the caterers of your choice to schedule a tasting and get the ball rolling.
