Q: What does Black Bird Farm's set-up and tear-down entail? 

A: Our staff takes care of setting up all of our tables, chairs, and wedding props for you before your rental begins so that when you arrive on your wedding day, all of the heavy lifting is already taken care of! At the end of the night, Black Bird staff will put away all of our tables, chairs, and props, as well as remove any non-food trash from the event space. 

Q: Can I add my own decorations to the barn?

A: We invite all of our couples to decorate and make Black Bird Farm their own! We will be happy to assist you with any extra lighting or other decor you would like to incorporate into what is already there. Any decorations that you add to the space are your responsibility, as anything left behind after the rental period will likely be discarded during our staff's clean up process.
