We do not require specific vendors although we have preferred vendors that are shared with our booked guests. These vendors include caterers, bartenders, florists, bakeries, DJ’s/musicians, wedding coordinators, photographers and officiants. You are free to use your own vendors in every area.

We also have two moveable bars/beverage stations that can be placed where desired on the day of the event. However, we do have a Host Liquor Liability Policy. You may bring your own alcohol to the venue as long as it is monitored by someone serving it.
For any Flat Rock Farm event where alcohol is served, you must obtain a general liability insurance policy in the amount of $1,000,000 per occurrence with host liquor liability with Flat Rock Farm as the certificate holder and as additionally Insured. A copy of this purchased certificate must be emailed to Flat Rock Farm prior to the event. This can be purchased for $125 here.

You may find that after touring Flat Rock Farm and viewing our decor, there is no need to bring added decorations.

Push pins work great on our wood interior and command hooks work well on the glass. Open flames are not allowed except outside and with limitations.

A contract and a 25% or 50% deposit are required to hold your date. The balance is due 30 days prior to your event. A contract will be sent upon request. Payments can be made by cash, check, Venmo, Zelle, or credit card. A processing fee will be applied for credit card and Venmo payments.
Sometimes unforeseen circumstances arise that prohibit guests from keeping their booked date of event. Therefore, we recommend all booked guests take out cancellation insurance.
You can purchase Event Liability insurance and/or Event Cancellation insurance.
Event Liability Insurance is recommended. Event Cancellation Insurance is optional. The differences are as follows:
Event liability insurance helps protect you if someone causes property damage to the venue or someone is injured at your event.
Event cancellation insurance reimburses you for lost deposits and non-refundable amounts if you have to cancel or postpone your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, such as:
- Vendor bankruptcy
- Extreme weather
- Military deployment
- Other losses such as lost or damaged wedding gifts, photography or wedding rings
