photographer networking shoot

I am a photographer with background in travel, nature and wildlife. Over the last couple years, I have moved into portraits. I now work with aspiring models to help them build out portfolio shots (and mine). I am looking to do a couple photographer/model networking shoot with 5 photographers and 5 models. This is all for personal use only, not commercial. I came across your space on Peerspace and wanted to reach out. As background, I am trying to create an event where there can be multiple locations so we can have 5 shots at same time. These would be with minimal or no props. Basically carving up space so keep out of each other’s line of sight. It looks like you have a huge raw area which would be great for this.

outdoor rehearsal dinner with a pool

My fiancé and I are looking for a space for our rehearsal dinner. We want somewhere with outdoor space, and your place is absolutely fabulous! I wasn't thinking I wanted a place with a pool, but now that I see yours, I am wondering if we could USE the pool during the event, or if it's just for ambiance! I don't know if that's an option, but I thought I would ask. :)

30th birthday party at a bar

I am planning my 30th birthday party on the 24th. I like your venue a lot and think it could be perfect for my event. Is 100 people a strict maximum or would you be willing/able to accept 110? The party would be adults only, mostly family and a few friends, no one under 18 years old. No entry charge. I am also planning to book the venue from 4:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. (4 -6 for setup, 6-12 event, and 12-1 for cleanup). I note that you offer a cleaning crew and just want to confirm that the cleaning crew would begin cleaning at 12:00 a.m. In other words, how much, if at all, will I have to help in the cleaning process? How much do your preferred vendors charge for tables/chairs? What size tables do they offer? Is the furniture in the venue (piano, couches, music instruments, paintings) removable or would it have to stay as is? Do you require a licensed bartender to serve alcohol? Do you have a bar stand or have vendors that rent them out? Would I be able to provide the alcohol and hire a bartender for serving or would I have to hire an alcohol service that provides the alcohol and bartender? If you require security, am I able to provide my own or would I have to use yours?
