On your wedding day, we want you to have the peace of mind that all the special details will come together as you envisioned. For this reason, we require all of our wedding clients to hire a Day of Coordinator. For your convenience, some of our wedding packages include the services of a venue-preferred Day of Coordinator. However, you also have the option to secure your own Coordinator/Planner if you prefer. 

do you require a day of coordinator? 

You bet! Special Event Insurance can be purchased online through companies such as  WedSafe, WedSure and EventHelper. It takes less than 15 minutes to get set up with a policy and have the insurance certificate emailed to the venue.  You can also get insurance from your current insurance provider as long as they are able to include Host Liquor Liability which the Venue requires. 

do you require event insurance?

All alcohol must be served by a licensed and insured bartender. If alcohol will be served at your event, we also require a Banquet Permit. We allow beer, wine, and up to 2 signature mixed drinks. Shots are not allowed at our venue. 

what is your alcohol policy?

Yes and yes! We provide our clients with a personalized and curated vendor recommendation guide, but you have the freedom to select your own event professionals including your caterer. Vendors in the following categories are required to sign our Vendor Agreement outlining Venue policies no later than 30 days prior to the event: caterer, bartender, photographer, videographer and DJ.

can we choose our own vendors? is outside catering allowed?

The length of your venue rental depends on the selected package. Venue rentals range from 2 to 12 hours. The latest an event can go is 11pm. Last call at the bar happens at 9:30 PM and last song is played at 10 PM. From 10 PM - 11 PM you’ll clean up your personal items and decor and take everything with you that you don’t wish to discard. All vehicles must exit the property by 11 PM. 

how long do we have the venue on our wedding day? how late can my event go?

A signed contract and wedding retainer / booking fee equal to 25% of the total invoice is required to secure your event date. The invoice must be paid in full no later than 90 days prior to your event date.

how much is the retainer? when must my invoice be paid in full?

We do! Our Damage & Incident Deposit is a separate payment from your Venue Rental Fee. and is due no later than 60 days prior to your event.  This deposit is fully refundable according to the provisions in your contract. The amount varies on type and length of event and ranges from $250 - $750. 

do you require a damage deposit?

Yes! All weddings with the exception of elopements/mini weddings include a 1-hour rehearsal. Rehearsals are generally available Monday-Thursday. The rehearsal date and time will be confirmed and approved by Venue Management 30 days prior to the wedding, sensitive to any other venue rentals. 

is a ceremony rehearsal included?

Yes! We believe love is love. We welcome love of all kinds—regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

We conveniently have linens and decor available to rent through in-house rental! Some of our wedding packages even include credit to our "decor closet" where you can find lanterns, candles, table numbers, aisle markers and much more! We can also assist with special rental items such as personalized signs and glassware. 

does the venue provide linens or decor? 

Five2Five staff breaks down all tables and chairs and performs the final cleaning. You’re required to clean up and collect your decor, and personal items. You’re also responsible for ensuring you have a caterer or assigned group of people to clear all dishes, food and trash from your tables so you can collect tables linens. Vista View Events does not provide table clearing services but we’re happy to help you grab your linens, centerpieces, etc once tables have been cleared of trash, food, dinnerware, etc! You’ll take everything with you that you don’t want us to throw away the night of your wedding and we’ll take care of the rest!

what type of cleaning am i responsible for?

Yes! Please contact us to discuss details for your non-profit event.

Fireworks or pyrotechnics of any sort; hazardous, poisonous, or flammable materials; glitter, rice, confetti, bird seed, or silly string; drugs of any kind; and weapons of any kind. Smoking is allowed only in the designated smoking area. 

what type of materials are prohibited at the venue?

If you are planning for an outdoor ceremony, the backup plan would be a lovely indoor ceremony in front of our floor to ceiling fireplace.  We also have a beautiful sailcloth tent available for rent between May-October. 

what is the backup plan for inclement weather? 

Yes! On event day, one of our dedicated team members will be your Venue Host. / Onsite Manager. This is your go-to person for you and your Coordinator for any questions that arise. The Venue Host will assist with logistics such as directing parking, operating the fire pit, and keeping restrooms stocked and clean. The host does not “coordinate” or run the schedule of your wedding day events. We require all wedding clients to hire a day of coordinator to ensure your day goes as smoothly as possible.

will venue staff be onsite during my event?

Pets may be on Venue property only if pre-approved by Venue Management. There must be a documented plan in place for the pet to be safe and controlled for the duration of its time on the property. Animals are not allowed to run loose on Venue grounds.
