Due to the large structural pillars and the gabled roof, the Event Barn lends itself elegantly toward a dinner setup using long tables. The pillars create essentially three "columns" of functional space; the columns on the left and the right side each have low ceilings with fans; and the center column has the vaulted ceiling with chandelliers.
We utilize a combination of 8-foot and 6-foot banquet tables to create longer 14-foot tables, with an optimal number of (7) seats (very maximum of 8) seats on each side of the table.
Overflow seating to the center column is only recommended if attendance numbers require it; otherwise, the space is left open for just the head table and the buffet. Then, that center aisle transitions to a fantastic dance floor once dinner is through.
The below diagram shows a standard setup as described above. The brown circles are our Whiskey Barrel pub tables (bar height) and the brown rectangle tables are our two (2) 8-foot farmhouse tables that fit nicely in the entrance nooks for your cake and displays.
For additional seating, we start seating the center "column" with guests, instead of just the head table.
We often get requests to have both the ceremony and reception in the Barn. It requires a little extra coordination, so plan for a "Patio Cocktail Hour" in between your ceremony and reception.
Primarily popular for meetings, a max of 164 can be seated (X-Back Chairs) with unobstructed views of the ceiling-mounted screen.
Two (2) Farmhouse Tables are included with your rental; use them to make an impressive head table! Max: 10 + Bride and Groom
While the farmhouse tables are too long to sit in a straight horizontal line from a whiskey barrel sweetheart table; they make an impressive statement as a "V". Max: 16 + Bride and Groom. (Note: This head table setup only fits with a max capacity of approximately 160 guests.)
Stay cozy with a smaller bridal party. This setup fits expertly between the pillars, and works great for smaller bridal parties.
