Frequently asked questions

What buildings may I use for my wedding? How many people do they hold?


We only utilize the white barn for events. The white barn will seat up to 100 in theater-style seating upstairs for weddings with the reception tables pushed to the sides of the barn for our rain option. For receptions on the main floor, the barn holds up to 130 people at our rectangular tables leaving a 16 x 16 square foot area for a dance floor. If you are comfortable with breaking down tables before dancing you can get closer to 140. There is more room downstairs for additional reception space. Some couples set up tents outside to seat additional guests for the dinner portion of the evening and use the barn for the bar and dancing.




What is required to reserve a wedding?


We can place up to a 48 hour hold on a date with no money down once you have attended a site visit. If another couple were to reach out and be willing to place their deposit down and signed contract then you would have until the end of that designated 48 hour period to send in your contract and non-refundable deposit or your date would be released for someone else to reserve.

In order to officially reserve a date, an email needs to be sent to connect@abbeyinspired.com stating the date and year you’d like to reserve. You will then need to send in an $800 non-refundable deposit and the fully signed Wea Creek Orchard contract & Inspired-Weddings & Events LLC terms and conditions document to the address listed on the front of the contract.

We only allow one wedding per weekend to allow adequate time for set up and tear down. Tear down must be completed by noon the day following the wedding. All couples gain access to the reception barn at 8:00 AM the Friday before their wedding.
