  • How many tables will fit in each venue?
    During your final review session, your dedicated Red Gate Farms client manager will assist you in creating a custom diagram tailored to your event. They will provide expert advice on optimizing flow and aesthetics while ensuring that your vision is fully taken into account. Additionally, click here for examples of standard floor plans for weddings with guest counts of 50, 100, and 150. These examples can serve as a helpful reference to give you an idea of how your layout might look.
  • What size are the tables and how many do they seat?
    At Red Gate Farms, we provide 5-foot round tables and linens for receptions, and white garden chairs for both reception and ceremony seating. For optimal seating arrangements, we recommend having 8 guests per table if your total guest count is under 130. However, if your guest count exceeds 130, we may suggest accommodating 10 guests per table to allow for a more spacious dance floor area. If you are having a plated meal or using charger plates, there is an 8-guest max per table. This will ensure that your guests have ample room to enjoy the festivities.
  • Can we bring our own decorations?
    Yes, and all decor and enhancements are the responsibility of the client to setup and cleanup. Vendor access to the premises is granted 4 hours prior to the event start time. This designated time also serves as the window for you to drop off any do-it-yourself (DIY) decorations to your Day of Coordinator.However, it is important to note that, for liability reasons, nothing is permitted to be left on the premises overnight. We kindly request that all items be removed at the conclusion of the event.
  • Who directs the wedding?
    In order to ensure the successful execution of your wedding, Red Gate Farms mandates the engagement of a professional day of coordinator or event planner who has been approved by Red Gate Farm’s Venue Manager. The complexities involved in coordinating numerous vendors and managing the event timeline necessitate the expertise of an experienced event planner. Throughout the entire event, from load-in to load-out or whenever any vendor is on the property, it is required that your chosen event planner be present. Their presence ensures strict adherence to Red Gate Farm's policies by the renter, vendors, and guests, thereby facilitating a smooth and compliant event. Please note that our venue fee structure is solely based on facility rental. Consequently, we do not provide on-site staff to handle comprehensive wedding planning, coordination, direction, execution, or decoration for your event. If any assistance is required from Red Gate Farms or venue management staff in executing your event, a minimum charge of $250 per hour will be applied for this service at a minimum of 8 hours.
