why do you require an event coordinator?
We want you to have the best wedding day possible! We work exclusively with The Hitched Company they are the best in the business. Wedding management and coordination are included in the pricing for your big day. We do not require event coordination for baby showers, bridal showers, or parties under 75 guests. For non-wedding events over 75, event coordination is required through the Hitched Company.
Do you have any required vendors?
Yes. We provide a carefully curated list of preferred vendors once a contract is signed. The coordinator, caterers, and rental companies listed are the only requirements, as they have met our strict standards and will provide you with the best service, professionalism, and value – not to mention, they will ensure your event will be amazing!
Can I serve alcohol at my event?
Alcoholic beverages are allowed and must be served through a licensed caterer, or an approved and insured Maryland bartender. Alcohol may be brought into the B&B for personal consumption of overnight guests only and must stay inside of the building.
Are there sound restrictions?
We have the advantage of being on a 65-acre farm but are still required to abide by Maryland state law. The State of Maryland regulations establish two time periods and two sound level limits: Daytime 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. 65 dBA at the property line. Nighttime 10 p.m. – 7 a.m. 55 dBA at the property line. The DJs on our vendor list are professionals and are mindful of the decibel levels while making sure the dance floor is full.
Is the venue handicap accessible?
We want to make sure all your guests can have an enjoyable time at your event. A drop-off zone close to the Carriage House is available, and the Carriage House is on ground level with double doors for easy access. Our luxury restroom trailer is equipped with a ramp.
Do you require insurance?
We require the purchase of WedSafe Event Insurance, or proof of coverage through your homeowners insurance, for minimum liability coverage of one million dollars ($150-$185). And though it’s not required, we highly suggest adding on a cancelation policy, just to make sure your vendor investments are covered.
