How many guests/ max capacity?
Clover Barn is designed to hold 300 guests inside, that includes wedding party. However, weather permitting, you can host additional guests outside.
Is the barn heated/ air conditioned?
Yes! We take pride that our facility will be comfortable and usable year-round.
Is there a smoking area?
Due to our wooden structure, the cleanliness of our property, and the enjoyment of all guests, no smoking or vaping is permitted inside or outside.
(Except the gravel parking area only) Please share this with your guests that this might affect.
How much to rent the facility?
Please look for our price list on the home page, there is a PDF that you click on and will give you all the prices and rental agreement.
Why are the event prices different?
Note that these are for smaller gatherings (showers, family parties, graduation, etc) that are also only booked within 90 days of the event. And those are also the prices for the couples who choose to rent the 1/2 day before their wedding to decorate, have the rehearsal, etc. (if not already booked for a wedding)
What are my contract hours?
Full-day Saturday rentals are from 9am- 12 midnight. If you need additional time to decorate, etc, please contact us.
We encourage you to rent Friday night (4-9pm) for set-up and rehearsal for an additional $500, if not already booked!
If you rent for the full weekend, the hours are noon-9pm on Friday, 9am-midnight on Saturday, and 9am-noon on Sunday.
Half day EVENT rentals are for 5 hours and would prefer you choose morning (9am-2pm) or evening (4pm-9pm)
Can we bring our own food?
Yes. Keep in mind that you will then need to provide dishes, silverware, napkins, servers, and all the cleanup of tables and kitchen.
We do not have staff for this, and is your responsibility. We encourage you to hire a licensed insured caterer to handle all of this. All food related garbage is to be taken to the dumpsters.
What about alcohol, can we bring our own?
We have an exclusive bar service, please see our price list (on the rental agreement) for details. Any alcohol on the premises must be purchased/ served through us. If you have individual questions for the bar service, that aren't answered in our price list on the PDF on the main page, please email: CloverBarnBeverages@gmail.com
Seating table size and type of chairs?
Our tables are all rectangle, that seat 10 guests. (96"x30") Our chairs are dark wood folding, with beige padded seats. We have different options for the bridal head table, including some antique "Sweetheart" tables and tufted chairs for the bride and groom.
Do you have a sound system?
Yes! With speakers throughout barn and on the covered outdoor patio. This system can be used for playlists hooked up from your ipad, etc.
For the outdoor ceremony site, we do have electric out there for you to bring your own system or for the wedding DJ, however, we don't supply a system for this location.
