What is the timing of a typical wedding day at Rosewood farms?
The standard venue rental is from 12pm-10pm with an additional hour from 10pm-11pm for clean-up. A maximum of 7 hours of event time is allotted, which include your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Keep in mind that everything brought on-site for your wedding day must be removed the same night. If extra prep time is needed for hair/makeup or vendor set-up, access to the property as early as 8am is offered for an additional fee. In the event that you would like your reception to be extended, you can rent one additional hour from 10pm-11pm for an additional fee. If you have a large amount of rentals (ex: draping, bistro lighting, etc.), we suggest purchasing extra clean-up time for an additional fee an hour.
