We appreciate you choosing Oakhurst Garden for your wedding.
We hope your wedding is memorable and pleasant.
*At least two months notice preferred to book your wedding at Oakhurst Garden.*
All weddings require a Security Deposit, a portion of which will be returned to you once your wedding is over and we have received clearance from our Oakhurst Garden Site Coordinator that there was no trash left behind and no damage done to the Garden. Violation of the policies outlined in our Rental Agreements may result in a larger portion of your Deposit not being fully refunded.
All blocks of rental time include setup/cleanup.
Occupying the Garden before or after rental times will result in additional charges.
*Member Discount Rate - All current Wylde Center members receive discounts on event rentals. Get more information on becoming a Member by visiting http://wyldecenter.org/membership/ and help support our mission at Wylde Center!
Private Party Room - Each rental includes full access to the Private Party Room in the back of the house which includes a bathroom, full kitchen (fridge, stove/oven, sink), and a room with tables and chairs for 15-20 people. This room must be restored to its original condition after your event to receive your full Deposit refund.
Mosquito Treatment - Concerned about mosquitoes? We will take care of it effectively and naturally in advance. For $35 we will secure the common area between house and chicken coop. For $70 we will secure common area and the areas around the pond. This service must be requested at least one week in advance.
Chaperones - One Wylde Center Chaperone is provided for each wedding rental.
Portable Toilets - All events with 50 people or more must rent their own portable toilet. Our preferred service is National Rentals. Please contact them at 770.819.7787.
Pit Use - A fire pit that is available for you to use during your event. If the fire pit needs to be emptied, please use the metal bin located behind the sinks marked WOOD ASH. Half burned logs should be left in the fire pit until they are completely used and should not be left anywhere on the property. Please do not put hot ash or wood in the bin. All fires must be completely extinguished before you leave the property. A chaperone is required if you will be using the fire pit at your event.
Weather Policy - In the event of inclement weather on the day of your event, we are happy to work with you to reschedule for another day. If you choose not to reschedule, the full amount of the rental fee will still be due. Last-minute cancellations of outdoor rental events due to inclement weather will not be considered for refunds.
Notes for all wedding rentals:
Oakhurst Garden is a public space. We are unable to close the Garden to our regular visitors during your event, which means you might have a few extra witnesses to your celebration! Also, we ask that your wedding be mindful of our neighbors and carpool if possible.
Wedding Clients are responsible for providing/renting their own tables, chairs, tents, coolers, etc.
The Event Coordinator will alert you if your requested date is available.
(Please note: Currently the Event Coordinator is a part-time position, so requests are processed as quickly as possible in the context of that part-time schedule.)
To move things along, you can go ahead and pay your Deposit, giving you priority on an open date.
Also, go ahead and submit your Rental Agreement and your rental request will be put into processing.
