And, if Mother Nature calls your name - we have a high end 6 station ADA compliant luxury porta potty trailer that has both AC and heat. With that said, the barn itself is not heated or air conditioned.
What is not included in the rental cost?
Fig Hollow does not supply linens, tableware / flatware, food / beverages or bartender for the bar. Your caterer will be responsible for all of the above - which is why we have partnered with three excellent companies because they bring everything! Music, photos, flowers and wedding cake or dessert would also be provided by an outside vendors of your choice.
Is a retainer or booking fee required to book the barn?
Yes....a retainer is required to reserve your date. "Booking" the barn requires a payment of $1500 to reserve your wedding date and this fee is non-refundable. Pricing noted is for attendance up to 150 people. The balance for your wedding is due one week prior to your wedding date, along with your final count of guest attending. Please note, that your caterer does not set extra tables or place settings for guest who may have not rsvp'd.
Do you refund booking fees?
To lock in a date, a retainer or booking fee is required. This is not refundable. By signing your wedding contract - you acknowledge this.
What time can we have access to the barn and what time does it close?
Most wedding barns become available around 11am. Fig Hollow is available starting at 10am the day of your event. However, if you would prefer to get ready in our bridal suite an earlier time can be accommodated.
The latest an event and music can be played is 10pm Monday thru Saturday. On Sunday's music should end at 8pm.
All clean up and removal of decorations, gifts, etc must be completed by 10:30pm. All guests and wedding party must be out at that time also. To make packing up stress-free, both Fig Hollow and Creative Caterers will assist in organizing and consolidating items from your table scape onto one table. This makes for easy pack up. We are here to make packing up effortless. and so you do not need to stress about it. Creative Caterers is always present till the end of the wedding since they remove your linens.
Please note that once an event has ended, there is no tailgating permitted.
Is the barn heated or does it have air conditioning?
Fig Hollow Barn is not a heated venue so it is only available spring through early fall. Fig Hollow Barn does not have air conditioning but the ceilings are close to 30 feet tall and the concrete floor keeps the space extremely comfortable. Keep in mind however, on the hottest days of the year or a late fall wedding where Mother Nature goes extreme, the barn still does not have AC or heat. The barn does have 60 feet of glass along the back of the venue that are 15 feet tall and they completely open and allow air to flow nicely on warm days. We also have two large barn fans in opposite corners to move the air in case the temperatures are extremely warm. Again, with the back glass doors open and the front barn doors, we get the perfect cross breeze. McCarthy Tent Rental does offer portable AC units or heaters for venues our size, but this would be outside of what we offer and an add on service. Please inquire directly to McCarthy Tent Rental for a quote.
What is the parking situation and is there a maximum permitted?
What is the bathroom situation?
Parking is on a mowed grass field. Depending on the size of your wedding, there will be one parking attendant present one hour prior to the ceremony or start of wedding reception. We will direct guests where to park. Fig Hollow Barn has strung cafe lights for safety when guests leave. Vehicles are not permitted to remain on the property overnight. Drink responsibly and please have designated drivers if your party is one that may require that.
We have a high end 6 station ADA compliant port-a-potty trailer (is that an oxymoron?) It is disguised to look like it is part of the building and most will think that. It has air conditioning and heat if needed.
Can you create a small, intimate setting at your venue?
Absolutely. Fig Hollow Barn is large enough to host a wedding up to 150 people, but it is not cavernous in the sense a small gathering looks out of place. Fig Hollow Barn also has the ability to bring in some architectural pieces to "fill in" areas to warm the space. We can set up a ceremony area in the center which then easily transitions to a dance floor for afterwards.
Fig Hollow does not provide either of these services. We refer you to use one of our three caterer partners listed below:
Contact Creative Caterers at 585.288.5808.
Partyman Catering 585.438.4321
Farmhouse Table 585.467.4400
Does Fig Hollow Barn supply the food and bar service?
Can we host the rehearsal wedding at Fig Hollow Barn?
If the barn is available, for an additional fee, you can absolutely rent the space. Please keep in mind that since we book events for both Friday and Saturday on the same weekend. This does not happen often. For scheduling your rehearsal, If the wedding barn is available the evening prior to your wedding, you are more than welcome to use it for your rehearsal. Otherwise, another evening, most likely Thursday would be available. Rehearsals are slotted for a one hour time slot of your choice - which based on all of the weddings we have hosted- is plenty of time to do a few practice walks and organizing everyone. We will be able to share at least 60 to 90 days prior to your wedding if the night before is available. Otherwise, Thursday evenings are left open and are available for all weddings booked in a particular weekend. Rehearsals are a lotted one hour time segments. Most are completed within that time easily. We do not host the rehearsal dinner or any other gathering beyond the practice unless previously coordinated and reserved directly with Fig Hollow.
Fig Hollow Barn does not permit smoking or vaping in the barn or on the premises except for one designated area that is outside the front entrance and to the right. There are two signs clearly denoted this. There are Adirondack chairs and lighting. Please keep this in mind if you have a large percentage of smokers in your party. If the majority of people smoke- there may be other venue options that can better accommodate them.
At the end of the evening, who is responsible for packing up your decorations?
Are open flamed candles permitted on tables or in general, with decorating?
Point of contact for the day of the wedding?
The day of your event is very important and our priority is to help create a perfect day for you. Probability has it that sometimes - something may not go as planned. For example, a vendor that you booked outside of Fig Hollow's vendor list hasn't arrived yet and it is 10 minutes till your ceremony and we are concerned about them driving up to the barn smack dab during your ceremony. Or, the baker forgot to bring pedestals for display and believes you should have supplied them. By having this point of contact on your personal bridal team to assist if needed is helpful and buffers you from any distractions of enjoying your day. It would be someone that you feel comfortable with, that the venue, caterer or any event vendors can go to if there is a question or an issue.
Is smoking permitted?
Our exclusive catering partners will remain on the premises till the end of your wedding day and they remove your linens. Typically picking up of decorations is your responsibility however, Fig Hollow will absolutely assist in removing your centerpieces and organizing them on a side table to make packing up quick and easy. This will be done at the end of your event. We encourage wedding couples to bring large enough boxes or clothes baskets for items to be placed in. Please note we will not repackage items in their individual original boxes or packaging. For example, lanterns, or votives that came packed in foam. We will collect all items and set matching items together in one spot. And because our caterers do such a stupendous execution of bussing and cleaning tables through out the evening, at the time your event is designated to end, that is the time tablescapes will be removed and organized. Please keep this in mind, for guests who may be remaining after the designated end time, we will work around them until their tables are the last left to undress.
Open flamed candles are not permitted in the barn. However, a glass hurricane or lantern that are certified for an open flame, and enclose the flame completely are acceptable and look beautiful. Check with us prior to purchasing 100's of votives on if the style meets our fire safety standards.
Fig Hollow Barn does not permit metallic confetti, paper confetti, raffia, fake flower petals, or anything synthetic that can be blown out of the barn and into the exterior. We take great pride in the property being litter free for you and all other events upcoming events.
Can our dog or pets be at the wedding?
Absolutely! Can my dog be invited for the ceremony?
Absolutely! They are part of the family, too! We just ask that they return safely to their home after the ceremony and photos. Keep in mind- it is typical to see bunnies and deer so if you have a runner, hold tight to that leash. And by the way- we have also permitted a cow too! I am being totally serious.
Are guns permitted on the property or in the venue?
Fig Hollow Barn supports the Second Amendment to our constitution but we do not permit long guns or semi-aut0matic rifles on the property in vehicles or on a person and absolutely no photos on Fig Hollow Barn property are permitted to have guns shown either without prior direct written permission from the owners. If you have a conceal and carry, per the law, no guns should be visible or exposed.
