Q. Am I permitted to bring my pet to participate in my ceremony?
A. We adore pets at RAF and love when they can celebrate with their families on wedding days. We do ask that you keep animals leashed or crated to ensure their safety, as well as the safety of the animals that reside at RAF permanently. We also ask that pets not be taken into the bridal preparation cottage or allowed to do their business on the main guest paths and walk-ways, or in the barn structure.

Q. Am I permitted to have a sparkler exit to end my ceremony?
A. Sparkler exits are permitted on the main gravel drive outside the barn structures and off the acid stained barn entrance patio. Because the barn is built of older barn wood, sparklers should be kept a good distance from the barn itself, and the shrubbery and trees surrounding the barn. We ask that you provide proper extinguishing items such as a galvanized tub filled with sand for your guests to properly put the sparklers out after use.

Q. What is the schedule for the payments on my event account?
A. Your event reservation payment to hold your event date is split into three easy to handle payments with the first $500 being due at contract signing, the 2nd installment due at 90 days from the contract date, and the 3rd being due at 180 days from the contract date. Guest count number finalizations are due 21 days before your event at which time a final billing of your event account will be emailed to you for payment with a due date of 7 days before the event.
