Everything You Need to Know
What is included?
When you book The Barn in Old Paradise you have access to the Big Barn, the Little Barn, catering kitchen, and the prettiest little bride's room you ever did see. Also included is use of 100 white folding chairs and 15 banquet (rectangular) tables, which seat 8-10.
Can we serve alcohol at our event?
Sorry. We do not permit alcohol. Besides, we can't have the neighbors feeling too bad that they're missing out on your lively party!
How long do we have access to the barn and other facilities with rental?
For a full day wedding event your party has access to all facilities from 10am to 10pm. A reception or evening only event, 5pm to 10pm. Plenty of time to cut the cake and cut a rug!
What is NOT included?
We do not provide linens or décor.
Your party is responsible for setup, take down, and cleanup. Most events are full of helpful family and friends. Helping hands make it quick and easy work!
What about pricing?
Wedding pricing starts at $1000 for an evening only on a weekday, and ranges up to $1600 for a full day on a weekend. We like to keep things affordable around here! All bookings require a $500 NONrefundable deposit. Your deposit secures your date and goes toward your total cost.
*Hilltop ceremonies are an additional charge.
*For smaller gatherings and other events pricing may vary. Please contact us for more details.
Can The Barn accommodate a live band? A DJ? What about a sound system?
There's plenty of space and plenty of outlets for that band you'd love to hire or a D.J. We do not provide a professional sound system. We have a portable loudspeaker and microphone for those with less discerning ears. As a heads up, music must be off by 9:30 pm. We'll make sure to let your sound person know in case they forget :)
Do you have restrooms?
You bet your bottom we do! Don't worry, Grandma wont have to make her way in and out of a stinky outhouse. And all your guests will be able to hygienically wash their hands before returning to the party.
What is the capacity of the barn?
The Big Barn has a capacity of around 200 and the little barn about 50. We also have an outdoor patio area that connects the two which is a great flex space. You may choose to combine all of the event space or to use each individually. Its up to you! In a reception type setting where people are coming and going, we can easily accommodate 300+ people.
Is The Barn in Old Paradise a seasonal venue? What months are you open?
Yes our venue is seasonal. Our dreamy barn is an authentic agricultural structure- a real barn!- built from 100 year old plans. As such, it is not equipped with heat. We're open May - October (all the best months for weddings)!
Can I bring in different or additional chairs and/or tables and furniture?
Absolutely! We're not about to limit your seating and décor options!
Am I required to use certain vendors if I book The Barn in Old Paradise for my event?
No. You may hire whoever you choose for your event. Its YOUR event!
