How many people can your venue accommodate?
Our blueberry barn can very comfortably accommodate 200 people in the fully air conditioned/heated barn. The blueberry barn is enormous, so there is plenty of room for everyone, even at capacity. We have had many guests, tell us that our blueberry barn is the largest in the state of Florida.
Our Peach Barn can accommodate up to 100 people and is ideal smaller, more intimate events.
How much do you charge per table and chair?
We don’t. We have simple inclusive pricing so everything that we have to offer, including our tables, chairs, linens and decorations are available for your use, at no additional charge. The only additional, optional fee is for a horse drawn carriage ceremony entrance.
Providing all of these extras, at no additional cost can save you A LOT of money, and is why a recent bride gave us a 5 star review and called us, “Crazy Affordable!”
Are decorations included in your pricing?
Absolutely! We provide a tremendous array of decorations to help you save time and money. We have several different options for table centerpieces, including floral arrangements, table numbers, lanterns, and LED candles. We also have many “Pinterest Worthy” Rustic signs like our seating chart and wedding schedule. Our ceremony decorations include 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 signs, hanging mason jars, and so much more. You really have to come and tour the venue to get a full picture of just how many “extra” décor we have included.
Are we allowed to bring in decorations?
Absolutely! We only ask that you do not alter any of our items with your decorations. We also ask that you not nail into the walls, or do anything that will leave permanent marks.
How many events do you host a day?
When you book your day, it is your day only. Our venue only has one event per day.
Do you offer a layout of your venue for us to format our setup for tables?
We offer an amazing program when you book, it’s called AllSeated. It allows you to quickly and easily add and move tables and chairs to the barn’s exact dimensions and layout so that you can arrange the tables, chairs, and even our dancefloor, exactly how you’d like them. Then on the morning of your event, our crew will set everything up exactly how you’ve designed it.
Who sets up the tables, chairs and decorations that the venue provides?
We do! Our set up team will follow the layout you designed on AllSeated and will set everything up for you. You and your wedding party are only responsible for setting up any additional decorations that you are bringing. If it is our stuff, we will set it up!
What is the deposit for booking a date?
A deposit of 1/3 of the total cost of the wedding is required in order to hold your date. The net 1/3 is due 120 days prior to the event and the last 1/3 is due 30 days before your special day.
Do you have a list of approved or recommended vendors?
We have a thoroughly vetted list of wonderful local vendors that we provide when you book with us. Also, thanks to TheKnot and Weddingwire, you can easily find information and reviews on the best vendors in every wedding category. We also do not require that you use our list of recommended vendors, you can choose any vendor you wish.
When can vendors arrive for setup?
When you book, you have the venue for 10 hours. Your vendors can arrive as early as noon for setup.
What are the closest hotels to your Barn?
Exactly 19 minutes away from both of our Barns is the Titusville Hwy 50 exit off of I-95 and it has several wonderful options for lodging. There is a Fairfield Inn & Suites that has a huge suite for the Bride and Groom with a Jacuzzi. There is a new Hampton Inn and a Holiday Inn as well. Plus, tons of restaurants. No matter how many guests will need a hotel, there is more than enough capacity at that exit to accommodate.
Can we have our engagement pictures taken at your venue?
When you book with us, we offer a free 2 hour session on the premises with props including a 1956 Studebaker (or 1954 Ford F-250 at the Peach Farm), a small boat in the pond, Cinderella carriage, vine-covered swing, and our blueberry vineyard or Peach Orchard. All you have to do is book your photographer and arrange for a date for your shoot.
Do you have someone on-site during events?
Yes! A dedicated staff member is on site and available to help you for your entire event, from start to finish.
What are your venue rules?
We deeply care about the safety of our guests and the community of Mims along with following all local, state and federal laws. Therefore, here are some very important rules that you must abide by when having your wedding at Ever After Farms.
(1) Alcohol can only be served by a properly licensed bartender.
(2) No alcohol can be brought in by guests (again, see rule # 1); although you as the event organizer can bring your own alcohol. But whatever alcohol is brought on the premises must be served by a licensed bartender.
(3) You must carry event liability insurance, which usually runs about $150 with major wedding insurance companies; WedSure, Markel or WedSafe.
(4) Each additional vendor (caterer, bartender, etc) must carry its own liability insurance
(5) You will be liable for any damage or theft by your guests.
(6) Reception must end at 10PM due to the Brevard County noise ordinance.
What is the likelihood of a hurricane?
Florida went nearly 10 years without a hurricane, and then in 2016 and 2017, we have had one each year, one in early September and the other in early October. It is certainly possible that there will be a hurricane during September or October but we are very hopeful that we will not see another one for a very long time. Our farms sit up high and drain very well. Blueberries and peaches need that kind of terrain to thrive. So we weren’t affected much at all by the last two storms. Also, our Barns have been remodeled with the latest in building standards so it will hold up extremely well against a major hurricane. Most comforting of all though, is that where we are located in Florida, which has historically been affected the least by hurricanes. We are close to Cape Canaveral and NASA chose that area for a reason when they built Kennedy Space Center.
