backyard wedding

i am getting married on the 3rd. I have been looking for a backyard to rent for my event as i want an outdoor wedding. Would your place be available for my date? And would the set up time need to be included in the time of the rental? as cocktail hour would probably start at 5:30pm, but we would need a few hours to get everything set up.

non profit fundraiser with cocktails

I am looking to throw a fundraiser for a non profit here. I plan on hosting 50-60 people for cocktails and appetizers after work on the 20th. I have a chef who will be making appetizers and we will be providing booze. Does that sound like a good fit for your space? Kitchen, bar and hangout space, is really all I need and I see you have it all. Also, is there a speaker system for playing music?
