How many people can I invite?

The Red Shed can comfortably seat 300 people. We can seat more, but this means taking down some tables for after dinner activities.

What is the rental time frame for the wedding/wedding reception?

We like to give you plenty of time to decorate the shed, you will have from 8am - 3pm on Friday to do so.

What are the requirements of the caterer?

You can hire whoever you please, just make them aware that we have very limited prep space and running water.

We also provide tables necessary for your food service. However, we do not aid in food setup, refilling of food stations or cleanup of food / food service items, including plates, napkins, and silverware. It is the caterers or your responsibility to pick up plates from your guests. You are welcome to bring in your own appetizers and desserts, as well.

While we do have a space and table for caterers to setup and hold the food, we do ask that the food already be prepped and mostly ready to serve. We do not have any sort of kitchen for caterers to prep in, so we ask that the space provided be primarily used for any last minute, finishing touches.
