We do not, however we do recommend the restroom trailers on wheels, we as a venue have never encountered a problem with brides not being open to those. We do have some recommended companies that we have worked with in the past but it is your responsibility to get the style and size trailer you want. They are extremely nice and guests never have an issue. Porta potties are also always welcome.
We do! We require every couple to have wedding liability insurance, therefore, if alcohol is being served in general it must be stated on the insurance that it is being served on the property whether it is an open bar or served. We do allow hard alcohol on the grounds.

We do have a bridal house that is an additional cost for the day. It is the farm owner's personal home that she opens up for the wedding day to allow the bridal party to get ready and take photos.. Etc. The bride and the wedding party have access to the whole main floor of the house, including the kitchen to lay out breakfast and lunch, the master bath to get ready in and hang the brides dress in the big window, and access to the master bed for bed photos with the bridesmaids.
The house is located on the farm but at a different entrance one mile down the road. Many couples and photographers like it for a different photo op area due to having a black blank fence, and a big flower garden, and many trees. We can even bring a pony or horse down to get in some photos upon request! Access to the bridal house is only the day of from 9am until the time to leave for the wedding. We do not at this time have grooms quarters for them to get ready but that is underway, however, grooms and groomsmen are allowed to come to the home for photos or first look upon the brides wants.
WEEKEND WEDDING COORDINATOR SERVICES
If you do not have a wedding planner, our weekend wedding coordinator services come complementary with any weekend wedding package. The wedding coordinator will act as the bride's shadow for the day to make sure everything is just perfect and they have nothing to worry about
Ashley Johnson, Owner of AshWood On Antioch Barn or another experienced event coordinator will attend the rehearsal the day before your wedding to get an idea of how you wish for things to flow. She will then put everyone in order, offer tips, and share ideas and insight on ways to ensure the ceremony runs as smoothly as possible so you'll have a stress free environment for everyone to enjoy the special day.
The day of the event, our dedicated wedding coordinator will assist the bride to ensure she stays on time and will keep her filled in on important things that are happening at the venue at the last minute. Our goal is to make sure the bride is always aware of our next step in the day, according to her itinerary that we plan together in advance. Your coordinator will make sure everything starts on time and everyone is in the correct positions. They will help the photographer with making sure everyone is there for their photos to be taken and work with the DJ and the caterers to make sure everyone is always on the same page and the evening runs smoothly. Our coordinator will even help parents stay informed with what is going on and if they have an issue, they will take care of it.
The weekend wedding coordinator only comes with the weekend wedding package if the client does not have a wedding planner already. It is usually myself, Ashley Johnson, Owner. My responsibilities are to be at the rehearsal the day before to get an idea of how they want the flow of everything to go. I then put everyone in order, give them tips, ideas, and tell them what the proper way of doing things are. I try to make everything run as easy as possible with a stress free environment for everyone to just enjoy themselves.
