How things work at The Valley
The Valley is a newly renovated 1840's barn, located only 1/2 mile east of Misty Farm. The beautiful ceremony site includes bench seating, followed by the outdoor round silo bar for cocktail hour, a Dining Barn seating up to 275 people, and the beautiful historic main barn for the party. Also, on site is a groom's shed, bridal staging area, and six bathrooms. Come tour this unique venue, and fall in love all over again... Two to three months prior to your big day; you will be contacted by me or one of my staff members to schedule the important walk-through meeting. It is approximately a two-hour meeting where we comb through the final details of the wedding day. In this walk-through meeting; we will focus on all the important details. We will discuss vendor lists, guest counts, schedules, rehearsal dinner, ceremony details, cocktail hour details, dinnertime details, tent/barn layout, table and linen choices. A few days following your meeting you will be sent a cad layout of the dining tent, pavilion layout, or barn layout; for dining configurations, along with a detailed invoice of all your final choices. You will have the opportunity to refine the details of the layout over the next few weeks and give your coordinator the opportunity to begin the final billing and invoice process. All must be decided no later than 2 weeks prior to wedding day so that the final payment can be sent and all cleared, linens can be ordered, and staff scheduled before the day of event. If you have an independent coordinator to assist you, she is welcome to come along for this meeting to help her understand or to have an opportunity to ask questions.
