Frequently Asked Questions

Venue tours and booking requirements?

Please contact us for availability and to schedule your site visit. Visits are typically scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays. To secure an event date we require a $2000 non-refundable down payment and a signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your event.

Do you charge a ceremony fee?

No, we do not charge a ceremony fee if you are married on property. The day is yours to utilize as you see fit. There are countless beautiful locations for ceremonies around the farm and in fact most couples do hold the ceremony on location. Our flat fee based on desired date is transparent and all that you will pay for the venue.

What is the time frame on our event date?
If you have booked a single day event you will have the property from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm when all live/amplified music must end.  You and your vendors will then have an additional hour for clean-up and departures by 11:00 pm. Since we only book one wedding per weekend tent construction and larger deliveries (tables, chairs etc) can be completed on Thursdays or Fridays.  
What venues are included? What is your venue capacity?
Our desire is for each and every family to plan their perfect wedding day flow without limitations, and what Cold Saturday Farm offers is a wealth of options for greeting locations, ceremonies, cocktail hours and receptions.  Our wedding fee includes all available buildings and spaces so there are NO additional charges for using any of the venues (The Orchard Barn, The Carriage House, The School House, The Overlook, The Gazebo, The Green, The Knoll etc). Use what you would like and in any order you would like.   If doing an outdoor ceremony and tented reception our capacity is 300.  Indoor ceremony/reception capacity is 125.   


Is the main Manor House included?
Our expectation is that renovations will be completed by the 2022 wedding season thus making the Manor House fully available for wedding parties to utilize.  Until then the ground level will always be open day of for pre-ceremony pictures and grand entrances out to the Green for ceremonies if desired.  The exact hours that this can be done can be coordinated with our on-site manager for each event.


Does Cold Saturday Farm have preferred vendors?
We require only that heavy rentals (Tents, Tables, Chairs, Dance Floors) come from Elite Tents and Events (410.795.8368).  They are a local 3rd party vendor with exceptional service and reputation. With the wear and tear of erecting and disassembling of large party tents on the farm we require that we know who is doing that work.   Other than those heavy rentals listed, a wedding party is free to choose any caterer, DJ/band, florist, photographer, transportation etc that they choose.
