Congratulations on reserving your wedding venue!
We are honored that you chose 4 Points Farm to celebrate your Big Day. Included in this page is some helpful information for planning your wedding at 4 Points. Feel free to visit here anytime.
I am in my office for emails and accounting on Mondays, Tuesdays, & Thursdays. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. My cell phone number is 865-654-9735. I prefer email for business correspondence, as text messages can get lost between personal messages from my family and friends.
The Days Leading Up to Your Wedding
1 year- 30 days
I am always a phone call or email away. If you need to set up more visits as you plan, simply contact me to set up a planning appointment. We want your big day to go as smoothly as possible. I typically don’t attend planning meetings, but I am always on my phone to answer questions that pop up. The farm is also yours if you would like an engagement or “save the date” photo session. Just email me and I will gladly block time for you and your photographer. If you need immediate answers to your question, please reference your “Welcome to 4 Points” email. I also have a page of FAQ from brides. See if your answer is here https://4pointsfarm.com/bridesfaq .
I will be in contact 2-4 weeks before your event to schedule your 1 hour rehearsal time and gather information on any vendors you choose to help with your big day. If there is an event the night before your wedding then your rehearsal will be at 9 a.m. on rehearsal day. If there is no event planned the night before your wedding your rehearsal will be at 4 p.m. and you may stay an additional 2 hours (until 7 p.m.) to set up and decorate. If the venue is free the day before your wedding and you prefer a morning rehearsal (it leaves the day free to spa, hike, golf, etc.) you may also choose a 9 a.m. rehearsal time and then stay until noon to decorate.
Day Before Your Wedding
I will meet you at the beginning of your rehearsal time to show you how to work our A/C, sound system, lights, and open those big barn doors. I will be available to answer any last-minute questions to make sure your time at the venue goes smoothly on your wedding day.
Day of your Wedding
The venue is all yours at noon! I will do another walk-thru early in the day and then contact you when the venue is ready. Last call at the bar is 10:00. Music ends at 10:30. Your rental time ends at 11 p.m. Cleaners will hit the ground running at 11:00. All your trash should be in containers before cleaners arrive. If you need a few extra minutes to load up your items, you may have access with cleaners from 11-12.
After your $500 deposit, the balance of your reservation is divided into 2 payments. The first is due one month after you fill out your rental agreement and the last payment is due a month before your wedding date.
I am always on my cell phone, but I am not always in front of a computer, so questions about payments or balances due are best handled by email.
One way to make a payment is to “ring up” the card we have on file. I will not automatically charge your card, but it is easy to request a payment be made. You can make a request at https://4pointsfarm.com/payment
Click the PayPal logo or go to https://paypal.me/4pointsfarm to easily send a payment. Please put your wedding date in the “add a note” section. You do not need a PayPal account to send money through PayPal. Just use as a guest.
Our Venmo handle is @TN4PointsFarm . Our profile picture is the venue. Please put your wedding date in the notes.

There are 2 kinds of wedding insurance, Event Insurance and Liability Insurance. We do not require our renters to purchase insurance, but many do. It often costs less than $150 to bind coverage and the policies offer great benefits.
Event Insurance (sometimes called cancellation/postponement insurance) covers weather, sickness, military deployments, or acts of God. It reimburses you so that you can re-plan your wedding. We recommend https://wedsafe.com or https://eventsured.com/wedding-insurance. If you are a military couple, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE purchase this insurance!
Liability Wedding Insurance covers any injuries or damage caused by your ceremony or reception. Your current car or home insurance company may offer policies, so check with them. Otherwise, we recommend TheEventHelper.com . Most policies are less than $150 and offer $1,000,000 in coverage.
