How do I reserve a date?
To reserve a date, you may book online or email us at: email@example.com saying you are ready to book XYZ date, if it is still available. We suggest you email us stating you are ready to book your preferred date and then include a backup date in case your preferred date is unavailable. Prior to booking a date, we hope that you are able to come out in person to visit the venue, as deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE! You can request a tour (or a Facetime tour if you live out of the area) on our tour request page, but an in person tour is not required prior to booking a date. Dates are reserved on a first requested basis. Whomever has requested to start the contract process from us by booking online or email first for a specific date will be first in line.

Do we have to utilize your caterers and bar service?
The Enchanting Barn includes a bartender in your rental package, therefore the liability of licensing and insurance are covered. Our Clients are welcome to bring in their own alcohol or purchase through the bar service. The Enchanting Barn prefers for you to use our “preferred vendors”, as we have already done the hard work of screening our caterers to insure the quality of food, superior service and prices based on our couple’s needs. However, we are open to outside vendors.
