Here at The Barn at Crooked Pines Farm, we sincerely believe in making lasting memories for our clients. Any event, especially a wedding, requires a number of things to make it successful. Nine times out of ten, however, I can point to one cluster of people who make a wedding an event with positive lasting memories: the vendors.
Vendors really and truly make or break an event. For example, if you want your wedding reception to be fun and full of energy with lots of dancing and mingling, the very best thing you can do is hire a DJ who has rave reviews, not the one who has rock bottom pricing and might not have much wedding experience. A catering company who has an excellent reputation is more likely to bus tables and have a professional air about them when serving your meal. A florist with examples of their work and is willing to draw you a mock-up of your centerpieces is probably worth the extra cash.
See, we can tell you these things because we can see what happens behind the scenes at an event. The bride, groom, and parents are much more relaxed and have more fun when they truly trust that they have hired vendors who can do their job to the utmost of their ability without the host and hostess having to constantly ask questions. When you attend a wedding as a guest, these are probably not things that you think about...however, when it is your own party, they suddenly become important.
This is why we have a Preferred Vendor list that we can supply you with when you choose The Barn for your special day. Our Preferred Vendors have worked in our facility alongside us, and the events they were involved with were some of the best times we have had at The Barn. That's why they made the list!
When a bride and groom decide to join our family and host their event at The Barn, they are certainly not required to use our Preferred Vendors. We do ask, however, that you select the people who will play a part in making your special day perfect wisely. We promise, once you get to your wedding day, the last thing you want to do is feel like you need to micromanage everything that goes on. Enjoy your day! Hire excellent vendors!
We are The Barn at Crooked Pines Farm. We believe in family & southern hospitality. We believe in hand written notes, sweet tea, and long porch chats. We want you to become a part of our family too.
