BARN, VINEYARD, GROUNDS AND LAWN
Can I put a tent on the Lawn?
Yes, there is space in the barn for 160 guests seated comfortably at tables with space for a dance floor. The capacity of the barn is 190 people. There is additional covered space on the boardwalk between the barn and the bathrooms – some brides are using this as the drink station or the buffet. If you still need more covered space there is ample space on the Lawn for large tents in front of and beside the barn.
Is there an extra charge for wedding ceremonies?
No, our gift to you.
Are there restrooms onsite?
Yes, we have heated and air conditioned restrooms.
What are the rules for decorating?
Every effort is made for you to decorate your event as suited to your vision. Because the barn is an antique family heirloom, we do not allow nails, staples, or glue. Lights or décor can be hung using zipties. We do not allow glitter, confetti, rice, or fake flower petals anywhere on the property. Candles can be used with a glass cover and must be at least 10 feet from barn, trellises, and deck. Electric or battery powered candles can be used anywhere on the property. We ask that you give us a full decoration plan prior to the event.
Can we/our guests BYOB?
No. As a licensed facility KY state law prohibits you from bringing your own alcohol – just like you can’t bring your own drinks to a restaurant. We do however provide you with a wide variety of bar options including beer, wine, and mixed drinks at a cash or open bar for your event.
I want to take photos/consult with my wedding designer before the wedding, is there an additional charge?
No! We want people to come to our winery! We ask that if you come and need to have access to the barn, or if you are taking pictures that you let us know in advance and come during normal hours of operation, and that you also come as a customer of the winery. We will have wine, beer, food, and a gift shop!
Do you have chairs/tables for rent?
Some furniture is included in the price. Additional tables and chairs run $7-$9 per table for 8-10 people and chairs start at $1.45. We have a list of preferred vendors who rent these items and more, however you may bring in your own.
Do you provide day of event coordination?
Yes, we offer complete design and day of event coordination services. The Farmer & Frenchman team is here to ensure your event runs smoothly. Contact Jamie Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 812-499-8880 for more information.
Do you provide décor, flowers, design, DJ, photography?
