We are an exclusively outdoor venue, with a few beautiful areas to choose from. When you rent our property you get access to all our available rental areas for the one fee (we do not charge for the use of multiple spaces), you also have access to the wedding suite (this is not for any guest to use, just the wedding party), you also have access to multiple power and water sources around the rental location.
Our location is pet and kid friendly.
You’ll see on our pricing sheet that we include plastic tables and chairs for up to 350 guests (linens not provided). If you would like, you can upgrade your rental package offer to wooden rustic rentals as well. We have long farm house tables, round wooden tables, folding bistro chairs, as well as benches and a variety of back drops, and a few other pieces. You are not required to get your rentals through us, but if you do there is no charge for setting up or delivery. You can see our rentals here:
We are also partnered with www.clementcaptures.com and he gives all of our clients 50% off his wedding packages listed in the pricing sheet at the discounted rate.
We require a few things at our venue: restrooms and lighting. There is a basic lighting package for one of our areas included in our pricing. It is a $1700 credit to Light Up the Walls, who we partner with to illuminate our venue. They are a required vendor. We do not work with other lighting vendors and do not allow DIY lighting.
We also include a basic porta potty rental with hand washing station. This can also be upgraded to a luxury portable restroom with a $200 credit toward whatever restroom you pick from Prime Time Event Rentals
What is Required
• We do not allow the sale of alcohol, though you can have an open bar. We do have bartenders here on staff that you can hire for $75 a hour.
• If you do decide to hire your own bartender, alcohol has to be distributed by a licensed bartender.
• If you are serving alcohol there has to be one security guard for every 50 people.
•We do provide security for $25 a hour.
•We also require 1 parking attendant for every 50 people for 3 hours: 1 hour prior to the event, and 2 hours during (for late arrivals). This is also included in our pricing.
•We also require that couples have a day-of coordinator. I offer day-of coordinating and all-inclusive planning, but you do not have to go through me. The coordinator cannot be someone in your wedding party, or a party guest.
• We also require you obtain an insurance policy for your event and any days that set up and tear down will be taking place. You can ask your personal insurance company, or we recommend https://www.theeventhelper.com
•The last thing we require is that you have the property sprayed for mosquitoes by our mosquito terminator. This is also included in our pricing.
As for vendors, we do not have any required vendors outside of our lighting and mosquito company. That means you can bring in any company for catering, decorating, rentals, etc. that you wish! The only company we do not work with is "Its My Party" due to several unfortunate encounters. Please check out our list of amazing preferred vendors below!
If you want any additional information or have any questions about our venue, the services we offer, and what we require, I would be more than happy to help!
Also, if you would like to set up a walkthrough of our venue I would love to show you around.
Thank you so much for considering River Bottom Ranch and I hope to hear back from you soon!
