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.
