Let's Chat....You are important
Feel free to call us or send an email. We are here to discuss your vision. In the meantime, here are some frequently asked questions
Q: Suppose I want my wedding to look and feel more rustic?
A: We are considered elegant with rustic charm. You may add whatever features that bring your vision to life. We also have barn doors for photo opportunities and or for your ceremony, tree stumps that define the isle, and other great rustic feature to add ambience for your special day.
Q: We were thinking about a backyard wedding or at someone's home that has a lot of land, what would be the benefit of choosing your venue?
A: Most people have never tried to organize this type of wedding. Therefore, they don't realize the cost and work that goes into it. For example, renting a tent like ours typically costs around $2,500 per day. Will you have a patio to place the tent in case of inclement weather? Then the tables and chairs for the reception, chairs for the ceremony, restroom trailer, handicapped restroom, decorations, games and the last goes on. When you show up here everything plus, awaits you. We ARE a wedding venue. That is all we do. We have the most amazing areas for photographs that allow you to reminisce about your special day.

A: Yes, we are located in Frederick County Maryland in a quaint town called Keymar. It is 30 minutes from both downtown Frederick and Westminster MD. We are also 10 minutes to Thurmont and Taneytown MD. This is the perfect setting for a countryside wedding. We are also:

Q: Are the restrooms included or do I need to rent them on top of the venue fee?
A: We are pleased to tell you that the restroom trailer and handicapped unit are all included in the already discounted pricing. Thet are heated and airconditioned. We also maintain them through your event. We empty the trash, restock toilet paper and soap as well as keep it clean. The cost to rent a restroom trailer is typicall in the thousands.
Q: Am I REQUIRED to hire a wedding planner or day of coordinator?
A: Although we think they are very helpful (if you hire the right person). We do not make you spend that extra fee. Coordinators typically run between $1,000 and $3,000 per day!
Q: May we bring our own caterer, or do we have to pick from a list that you have predetermined?
