Can I bring in my own vendors for an event?

Of course! We would be happy to recommend some of our local favorites, but you are not required to use them. We do, however, require that vendors hold and present to us their proof of insurance policy.

May we bring our own alcohol?

As we do not provide alcohol ourselves, the service of alcohol must be handled at the venue by a contractor with the required off-site permits to serve alcohol and whose employees have received the required training to serve alcohol.

No self-serve bars are permitted and alcohol may not be served to any guest under the age of 21.

May we bring in decorations for our event?

Yes, we welcome and encourage decoration of the space. You are welcome to hang décor from the rafters in the space and on the walls, as long as it will not cause any type of damage to the space. We do not allow the use of tacks, nails, glue or staples in hanging of décor, nor do we allow tape on the floors.

What time do we have to be out of the building?

We ask that all music and beverage service ends at 11:30 pm. All guests of weddings and events are to vacate the venue at 12am so that vendors and staff may clean up for a "hard out" of 1 am.

Do you allow candles on site?

We allow candles as decor but only if the flame is contained. Tapered candle holders and pillar candles must be contained within glass cylinders, and votives must be contained in holders. If any of our tables are damaged by wax, you will be charged to replace the table.

Do we have to have a day of coordinator or wedding planner?

We require that you hire a professional wedding planner or day of coordinator to manage the on-site coordination of vendors and the ceremony regardless of guest size.

Is our security deposit refundable?

We have a fully refundable $1,000 security deposit for any damage that may have occurred to the property. After the final walk-through, if we determine with you that no damage was done to the property, this deposit will be returned to you.

Why is my quote higher than the starting price of my package?

Simply put, the larger the wedding the more expensive everything at your wedding or event will be. Larger weddings require additional staff, more time spent in correspondence with vendors and clients, plus a higher level of coordination and planning to ensure the space is used appropriately and your event goes off without a hitch! Not to mention resources like water and energy!

table flipping

What does it mean to "flip" a room?

A “flip” is an event industry term describing when a room is completely transformed between stages of an event, such as from a wedding ceremony to a dinner reception. Flips require planning and teamwork to ensure the event flows smoothly.

Firelight Farm FAQs: Table setting

Are we required to clean up after the event?

The venue fee includes cleaning based upon reasonable use. If excessive cleaning is required beyond what is typical for a wedding or event, there will be an additional charge. This includes, but is not limited to, cleaning and removing flower petals, cigarette butts or decorations.
Bridal Suite

May the wedding party come the day prior to run through a ceremony rehearsal?

We allow clients to run through their ceremony on site the day before their event, however we can't guarantee the space will be available unless you have booked it for the day proceeding. If we book a client on the day before your wedding we will let you know as soon as we can, so that you can make other arrangements for your rehearsal.
