What is your venue’s capacity?

Creekside Estate has ample parking, tables, chairs and staff to accommodate groups of up to 100 guests for midweek (Monday through Thursday) wedding packages, and groups of up to 200 guests for Friday, Saturday and Sunday wedding packages.  Additional charges may apply for guest counts exceeding the maximum stated capacities.


Can I choose my own caterer?

Absolutely!  Outside catering is always welcomed.  While we recommend that our couples choose a professional caterer that is licensed and insured, we are also open to those who wish to self-cater.  This is your special day and we want you to have an event that reflects your unique taste!

 


What kitchen facilities are available?

Creekside Estate is an outdoor venue and there is no licensed kitchen onsite, however we do provide a tented food prep area that includes a fridge, chest freezer and a grill, as well as access to electricity and running water.  We are happy to offer these amenities to visiting caterers and those who wish to bring in their own food.


What is your policy on alcohol?

You are welcome to bring in your favorite beer, cider, wine and champagne - but no hard liquor, please.  All alcoholic beverages must be served by a licensed and insured bartender. Creekside Estate requires two contracted bartenders for any event exceeding 100 guests.

 


How is set up and clean up handled?

Creekside Estate will set up tables and chairs for your event, and tear down those items at the end of the evening.  The client will be responsible for returning the property (as well as the Bridal Suite and Groom’s Cottage) to the state that it was provided to you.  This includes clearing tables, removing your linens, placing all trash in designated containers, cleaning and returning any items borrowed from Creekside Estate, and taking with you all personal items at the end of the evening.


How do I reserve my date?

In order to hold your date, we will need a signed rental agreement and reservation fee in the amount of 50% of the package price.  Final payment and a $1000 (refundable) damage deposit is due 90 days prior to your scheduled event. 


What happens if I need to cancel or postpone?

We understand that sometimes life happens and although our reservation fee is non-refundable, Creekside Estate will gladly offer a one time change of date (subject to current pricing and availability) if desired.


What are your venue’s insurance requirements?

You will need to obtain general liability insurance in the amount of $1,000,000.  The policy must include host liquor coverage (if you are planning to serve alcohol at your event) and name Creekside Estate and Vineyard LLC as an additional insured.  If coverage is not available through your existing renters or homeowners insurance, a single day event policy can be purchased through www.eventhelper.com or www.wedsafe.com.  A copy of the certificate of insurance must be submitted to Creekside Estate at least 60 days prior to your event.
