Due to the antique nature of the barn, we want to keep it in great condition as long as possible, meaning decorations may not be hung with tape, nails, or screws inside or on the outside of the barn. All decorations must be removed without leaving damages. No confetti or glitter. Any hay used as a decoration will need to be cleaned up, per clean up requirements. We do want you to have the perfect event, so should you run into issues hanging something up, WFE is open to discussing decoration needs and finding a solution.
May I have rehearsal on-site?
Yes absolutely. The property is yours to use from Friday- Sunday. Many couples use the back yard and grill for the perfect small rehearsal space!
Does the barn have heat or A/C?
The barn at WFE is heated, but not cooled- all windows and doors do open for a breeze.
