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.
You may choose a caterer from our list or coordinate your own. For small micro events, guests are allowed to bring their own food with prior approval from Flat Rock Farm.
Flat Rock Farm cannot sell or serve alcoholic beverages. However, guests may bring their own alcohol to the venue as long as it is monitored by someone serving it. We have a rustic cantina area that serves well as a beverage area and bar. We also have two moveable bars/beverage stations that can be placed where desired on the day of the event.
Flat Rock Farm is within the city limits. There is a city sound ordinance. Loud music must be transitioned to softer music after 10:00 PM
You may find that after touring Flat Rock Farm and viewing our decor, there is no need to bring added decorations. You may bring your own if you choose, however we simply ask that you do not use the following decorative items: feathers, sequence, confetti, glitter, silly spray, birdseed, rice, beads, faux petals, tape, nails, and staples. 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.
Flat Rock Farm has several cottages that can be accessed through AirBnB or VRBO. Links for these and other preferred accommodations are given to booked guests. Should they not need them for their event, they are open to the public to reserve and book.
Yes, the main venue cottage, porches, and bathrooms are handicap accessible.

Yes. We can accommodate up to 60 vehicles in our lighted parking area. To limit excess parking we ask that guests share rides as much as possible. Younger guests need to be prepared to walk down into the venue. Shuttle service can be provided if needed.
We love animals and encourage you to bring your fur baby on a leash for the ceremony but they must be removed from the venue once the reception begins. However, due to our insurance clause, no pit bulls or partial pitbull breeds are allowed on the premises while guests are present.

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
Smoking is allowed outside only with the provided receptacles.
Flat Rock Farm has space for a 30’x50’ tent in front of the venue. Because of the amount of string lights already in place, additional lighting cannot be strung up.
