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.

corporate event with a band

I attended a Sofar event in your space and loved it, and would like to plan an upcoming corporate event for my company. We plan to have a live musician/band, bring in our own food/alcohol/bartenders, and enjoy both the indoor and outdoor space. Please let me know which of the two dates I mentioned are available, and if so, if you have any thoughts/concerns on the event. If we do the earlier date, it's a bit more of a logistical push so we just want to get a move on with our planning.

ceremony to celebrate wedding vows

My fiancé and I are working on hosting a small, informal morning ceremony/party and brunch to celebrate our wedding vows on this day. It should be a very small, intimate event with just family and the closest friends. We'd love it to be outdoors with great food and some light music. Do you think this could be accommodated here? I saw some great rustic outdoor furniture in some of the catering pictures in the listing. Is that on-site already, or is that from the caterers?

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. :)
