How much does it cost to hold a wedding at Swan Harbor Farm?
Approximately $3,500 to $7,000, depending on the amount of hours and furniture needed for your event.

How many guests can I invite?
Our tent can accommodate up to 250 guests.

Do you cater?
No, we do not have a caterer on site, but you can select any licensed and insured caterer.

Can I get ready for my wedding on site?
Yes!  Upstairs in the farm house there is a groom's room and a bridal suite for everyone to get ready.

How do I reserve a date?
We will meet with couples to answer any questions.  Once you select a date, we will create a contract to be mailed to you.  Review the documents, sign off, and return, with your deposit, and the date is yours!

What happens if it rains on my wedding day?
If the weather does not cooperate, your ceremony will take place under the tent rather than on the lawn.  Your caterer will set up the chairs to create an aisle and the officiant will stand in front of your guests to conduct your ceremony.  Your caterer will then relocate the tables for your reception during your cocktail hour.

Do you provide staff for our event?
Swan Harbor Farm will have three staff members on site for your event.  A hostess will cover the house throughout the event and two grounds staff will greet your guests as they arrive and assist the caterer under the tent.  They are available to you throughout the event.

Can we visit the waterfront during our event?
Yes, the park is open to you and your guests through the event.

Can we arrive or depart by boat for my event?
Yes, you can!

Is the park open to the public during my event?
The park is open to the public from 7 am to 5 pm.  Staff will monitor the grounds and assure that no park visitors will be in the vicinity of the event area.  After 5 pm, the park is open only to event guests.

How late into the evening can our wedding be held?
We allow events to be held until 2:00 a.m. By that time all guests should have left and the caterer should be finished with their clean up.
