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.
Our office hours are typically Monday- Friday, 10 am to 5pm. If I miss you, I try to answer calls and emails with 24-48 hours during normal office hours. Our phone number is 865-280-2124 and our email address is [email protected]. My cell phone number is 865-654-9735.
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. If you need immediate answers to your question, I have a page of FAQ from brides. See if your answer is here https://4pointsfarm.com/bridesfaq .
I will be in contact about 30 days before your event to schedule your 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. 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.
Day Before Your Wedding
You will receive an email with the door codes and some helpful last-minute advice. I do a walk-thru before you arrive for your rehearsal to make sure that the venue is ready.
Day of your Wedding
The venue is all yours at noon! Your rental time ends at 11 p.m.. Cleaners will arrive then, and you may pack up as they clean until midnight.
After your $500 deposit, the balance of your reservation is divided into 2 payments. The first is due 2 weeks 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.
You may also mail a check to:
4 Points Farm
PO BOX 6820
Sevierville, TN 37864
*Be sure to put your wedding date in the memo.
The biggest decision you will make on your wedding day (other than choosing your spouse) is choosing your wedding coordinator. At 4 Points Farm we do not require a wedding coordinator, but we highly recommend using one to make your day as smooth and stress-free as possible. This is your day to be The Bride. The day of your wedding, we will make sure that all tables and chairs and décor are available for your use, but we do not set up or decorate for you.
For the brides who want to plan, arrange vendors, and decorate the farm themselves- our preferred coordinators offer affordable day-of-ceremony-only packages to make sure your plan goes smoothly.
For the brides who want help making their vision a reality, our preferred coordinators can also offer decoration assistance, vendor booking and follow-up, as well as day-of-event execution.
Our preferred wedding coordinators include:
At Last Weddings & Events by Colleen Brackins https://www.facebook.com/AtLastEventsTN
MC Weddings by Kristy Myers https://MargaretClaireWeddings.com
Absolute Wedding Perfection by Angie Froemel https://absoluteweddingperfection.com
Live Laugh Love Weddings https://livelaughloveweddings.com
You may choose one from our list or bring a coordinator from home. Our coordinators are familiar with the property, amenities, and supplies. Their services range from day-of-event-only to full-service. They are also well-versed on the property and policies. If you choose a coordinator outside our list, please have them contact us and we will forward our rental policy to them.
