01. What kinds of events do you host?
We love all kinds of celebrations! Windy Knoll is a welcoming venue and is open to all weddings. We also happily host birthdays, anniversaries, corporate celebrations, and nonprofit events.
02. How can we tour the property?
Fill out our contact form or email us to request a tour; we'll get back to you within two days to schedule. We offer in-person, socially distanced tours, or Facetime / Skype tours. We also have a quick walk-through video of the Wedding Barn available on the "Grounds" section of our website. We are currently requiring masks for guests on property, including during tours.
03. How do I reserve my date?
When you've decided to book, you can reserve your date by submitting the down payment. We require at least a phone call prior to booking, but prefer a tour! If you need time to decide, we are willing to place a temporary hold on your wedding date for free and will accord you a right of first refusal if we receive a request for another event on that date.
04. What forms of payment are accepted?
We currently accept payment by check, money order, or wire.
05. What does the security deposit cover?
The security deposit protects Windy Knoll and helps us ensure that we can provide each bride and groom with the same level of pristine accommodations and facilities, regardless of the damage sustained during events!
06. When is the final payment due?
Final payment is due 30 days before the date of your event.
07. Are the deposits refundable?
The security deposit is refunded after your event, assuming that the venue does not sustain damage as a result of your event.
08. What is your cancellation policy?
Besides the security deposit, all payments made prior to the cancellation are non-refundable. For this reason, we highly encourage you to let us know as soon as your event is cancelled. In the event of a government-mandated closure, we will work with our couples to reschedule or refund pursuant to the applicable laws.
09. Can we use the venue for engagement photos/bridal portraits?
Yes! We would love for you to create even more memories at Weddings at Windy Knoll. In fact, we permit two photography sessions in our packages when you book with us!
10. Can we rehearse our ceremony?
Of course! We only book one event per weekend, so you will not have to worry about arranging a different time to rehearse. You may hold a ceremony rehearsal during the day or evening on Friday before your event. We have restaurant recommendations in our Local Faves page for your rehearsal dinner.
11. Can we have a pet in our ceremony?
Your furry friend may participate in your wedding ceremony with a $75 pet fee per pet. We require that the pet have a handler for the event. Moreover, no animals are permitted inside the facilities except for certified service animals.
12. How does event cleanup work?
You are responsible for ensuring that your vendors clean up all items from your event. We offer time after the conclusion of your event, and on Sunday, for your vendors to tear down decor and other items. We do require that any messes that may stain or damage the venue be picked up by your vendors on Saturday evening.
