WHAT IS THE VENUE’S CAPACITY?
The venue can accommodate up to 200 guests maximum.
ARE YOU DOG FRIENDLY?
We 100% allow our couples to have their dogs be a part of their special day as long as they are not aggressive, have up to date vaccinations, and have a dedicated handler at all times.
DOES THE VENUE PROVIDE TABLES AND CHAIRS? ARE THEY INCLUDED WITH THE RENTAL?
Absolutely! For under the Tipis we provide twenty-five wooden farmhouse-style tables and benches for guest seating, 6 taller cocktail tables and up to 50 chairs to expand the table capacity from 6 to 8 guests each. For the ceremony we provide wooden benches and chairs for up to 200 guests. There are also 40 Adirondack chairs for the area outside the Tipis. All tables, benches, and chairs are included with your rental.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
If it rains your ceremony can be held under the completely waterproof Tipis! Which look just as magical as the Pecan Tree Grove. If it’s a light drizzle and you’d prefer, the ceremony can still be held in the Pecan Grove as long as you make sure your guests bring umbrellas. Wedding party ceremony photos holding clear bubble umbrellas actually look quite romantic.
WHAT IS YOUR DATE “HOLD POLICY”?
We can hold one date as a courtesy for up to 72 hours after the contract is sent out electronically to be signed. After that time, we reserve the right to release your date to other interested couples if we have not heard back from you. Before a contract is sent out, we operate on a first come, first served basis when it comes to date selection.
DO YOU SETUP TABLES & SEATING FOR MY CEREMONY AND RECEPTION?
We sure do! Your ceremony and reception tables, benches, and chairs will be setup prior to your arrival on the day of your wedding. Depending on your guest count, there are different setup options you can choose from ahead of time.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DAY OF COORDINATOR?
If you choose to purchase the “Basic Wedfest” you ARE REQUIRED to hire a 3rd Party Day of Coordinator. If you purchase the “Original Wedfest” or “Almost Everything Fest” Elm Pass Woods will provide Day of Coordination as part of those packages. We do not offer Full Wedding Planning as part of any packages – if you’d like a Full Wedding Planning Service, you will need to hire a 3rd Party Wedding Planner and we can make recommendations if you need them.
DO YOU REQUIRE WEDDING DAY INSURANCE?
You bet — Special Event Insurance can be purchased through your own insurance company or through online options like WedSafe and WedSure. The average cost is $175.
WHAT IS YOUR ALCOHOL POLICY?
All packages except for the “Basic Wedfest” include bartending service for 4 hours by our professional wedding and event bartending partner, The Pour Horse. Additional upgrades such as signature cocktails or a vintage horse trailer bar can be purchased directly through them. Couples who wish to hire their own bartending service can do so through any licensed and insured professional company of their choosing.
WHAT IS YOUR FOOD POLICY?
We have found that food trucks work best to complement the festival vibes, and do have a preferred vendor that we feel is the absolute best. However, you’re welcomed to choose a professional and insured wedding & event caterer of your choice!
HOW LONG DO WE HAVE THE VENUE ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
All couples will have access to the venue from 11am – 11:30pm on Friday/Saturday, and 11 am – 11pm on Sundays. The Grand Exit must happen no later than 30 minutes before the end of the rental period. For 30 minutes following the Grand Exit you’ll clean up your personal items and decor and take everything with you that you don’t want us to throw away.
CAN WE SETUP OR STORE ITEMS THE DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING?
Elm Pass Woods loves to give each couple exclusive access to the venue on their wedding day so storing items/setting up at the venue the day prior to your wedding is not doable.
WHAT DÉCOR DO YOU PROVIDE?
Elm Pass Woods is proud to provide many vintage décor items for the couple to use. These include ivory gauze table runners, various colored vintage lanterns, wooden directional signs, 5 vintage trunks and medium sized white ladder, giant reclaimed wood “LOVE” letters and up lighting, 6 wine barrels, 7 wooden spool tables, macramé curtain (5ft x 7ft) – can be used at venue entrance (or anywhere!), LED tea lights and assorted mason jars/votives, cut tree stump wood rounds in all sizes, access to cut evergreen cedar for tables and décor – florist money saving hack!
WHAT TYPE OF DECOR IS PROHIBITED?
We want to provide each couple with an undisturbed natural backdrop for their big day. So, artificial confetti or loose glitter of any size, Rice, Silly String, Fake Snow, or loose Faux flower petals are not permitted.
CAN WE TAKE PICTURES ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY ON THE DAY OF?
We’re happy to show you the best places to take photos around our property! If you purchase the “Almost Everything Fest” which includes our preferred professional photographer/videographer, Intrinsic Moments Pictures – their crew already knows these spots!
DO YOU HAVE A DAMAGE DEPOSIT?
We do! Our Damage Deposit is $1,000 and is a separate fee from your Venue Rental Fee. The Damage Deposit is fully refundable according to the provisions in your contract.
WHO CLEANS THE VENUE AFTER OUR WEDDING?
Elm Pass Woods staff cleans and breaks down after your wedding. You’re required to clean up your personal items, decor and rented décor – this includes from the Wedfest Guest House unless you will be staying the night with your new spouse as part of the “Almost Everything Fest” package. You’ll take everything with you that you don’t want us to throw away the night of your wedding and we’ll take care of the rest!
WHEN DO WE HAVE OUR FINAL WALKTHROUGH & CEREMONY REHEARSAL?
We’ll send you automated reminders when it’s time to schedule your final walkthrough and your ceremony rehearsal. We typically do final walkthroughs about two weeks before your wedding. The ceremony rehearsal takes place for 1 hour the day before your wedding, subject to availability. We will work with you to pick another day if the day before is unavailable.
CAN I PAY WITH CREDIT CARD?
Yes, Credit Cards and Bank to Bank Transfers are the preferred method of payment.
SOUNDS PERFECT! CAN YOU SUMMARIZE EVERYTHING THAT IS INCLUDED WHEN I BOOK ELM PASS WOODS??
We know wedding planning can be stressful so we make sure that every wedfest at Elm Pass Woods includes the “Starter Pack” to cover ALL the basics which can be seen here.
Depending on which festival package is chosen, there can also be additions to the “Starter Pack”!
