Unfortunately, we do not offer these services at this time. If you are looking for a less stressful wedding day, we highly recommend you hire a professional planner or day of coordinator to help oversee all those wedding day details. Feel free to ask us for recommendations, we know a bunch of great wedding planners!

DO YOU HAVE A PREFERRED OR APPROVED VENDOR LIST?

Right now, we do not have a restrictive preferred/approved vendor list since we are a new venue. Instead, you are able to select your own professional vendors and licensed caterer. We have started a list of great vendors we have worked with and would gladly share this list with you. Just ask!

WE WANT AN OUTDOOR CEREMONY BUT WHAT IF IT RAINS? DO YOU HAVE A BACK UP PLAN?

Of course! The loft is our dedicated space for indoor ceremonies. We have a separate set of chairs for the indoor ceremony space so no guest will have to grab a chair to come inside. There is no additional fee for using the ceremony spaces.

WHAT IS THE CATERER POLICY?

You’re welcome to choose a professional licensed wedding and event caterer of your choice! Wedding and event caterers must bring food in that is cooked and prepared from a licensed off-site kitchen, as The Eloise does not have grills and/or ovens to support food preparation.

DO YOU PROVIDE BAR SERVICE?

Yes we do! We have in-house bar service and provide the bartenders. Barware is included with your bar service. Please send us an email to inquire about bar pricing. 

WHAT TIME CAN WE SET UP?

The Eloise is all yours starting at 10:00 am on the day of your wedding. If you want to set-up or do hair/make-up earlier than 10:00 am, please reach out about including these additional hours to your rental. Our hourly rate will apply. 

WHEN ARE CEREMONY REHEARSALS SCHEDULED?

Ceremony rehearsals may be scheduled two weeks prior to your event Monday-Thursday, as long as no other event is scheduled. Ceremony rehearsals are scheduled for 1 hour.

IS THERE A DAMAGE DEPOSIT?

Yes, we do require a $1,000 damage deposit for potential damages to the venue or property. It’s a separate fee from your Venue Rental Fee and is fully refundable according to the provisions in your contract.

DO YOU REQUIRE SPECIAL EVENT INSURANCE?

To make sure your wedding day and investment is protected, we do require special event insurance. We require a basic policy for general and host liquor liability that can be easily purchased through your personal insurance carrier or online specialty wedding options like WedSafe and WedSure. We will walk you through this once you become an Eloise couple.

DO YOU HAVE WEDDING SUITES?

Yes, we do! There are two spacious wedding party suites with their own bathrooms located on opposite sides of our ceremony space. The wedding party suites are on opposite sides of the venue so both parties can get ready on-site and not have to worry about accidentally seeing each other before the first look or ceremony. 

CAN I BRING MY PET?

We love our pets and bet you do too. You may bring your furry four-legged friend to your outdoor ceremony and include them in your wedding photos with written permission from The Eloise. To ensure a clean venue, kept grounds, safety and comfort to all your guests, we do not permit pets in the venue (including wedding suites) except for service animals.

DO YOU SET UP TABLES + CHAIRS FOR MY CEREMONY AND RECEPTION?

We sure do! The set-up and take-down of chairs for your indoor/outdoor ceremony and tables/chairs for the reception is included within your rental fee. There is no need to lift a finger on your wedding day to set-up tables and chairs at The Eloise.  

DO YOU PROVIDE TABLE LINENS?

At this time, we do not provide table linens. This is the only item that you need to rent or purchase to host a wedding at The Eloise. Make sure to ask your caterer if they provide linens or these can be rented from any of the great rental companies on our vendor list

WHO CLEANS AFTER MY EVENT?

We do! Standard cleaning is provided by The Eloise staff and is included in your venue rental fee. Just make sure to take your decorations with you at the end of your wedding day.

WHEN DOES THE ELOISE NEED TO KNOW MY GUEST COUNT AND VENDOR INFORMATION?

30 days before your wedding we need your final guest count and the list of your vendors with phone numbers and email addresses.

IS THERE PARKING?

Sure is and it’s free! There is ample on-site parking available for you and your guests. Overflow parking is on the property for larger and excess vehicles.
