Tin Roof Barn Wedding

Tin Roof Barn Wedding

Tin Roof Barn Is a Rustin Wedding Venue in the Columbia River Gorge.

I had the chance to meet with Kelly from Tin Roof Barn and interview her about the her rustic barn wedding venue, as well as create a walk through of the space.

Below are two films: a walk through of the Tin Roof Barn and a Q&A session with Kelly the owner. In the Q&A we talk through questions couples might have as they consider Tin Roof Barn as a possible wedding venue. You will also find those questions and answers written out below the films.

Hopefully this is helpful for you guys as you search for the perfect venue for your wedding in the Columbia Gorge!

We have a pavilion for the ceremony in the event of inclement weather.  

Q: How long will I have use of the event space I reserve? Is there an overtime fee if I stay longer? Is there a minimum or maximum rental time?  

Event hours are 12pm-10pm and 10pm-10:30pm for cleanup and guest departure.  We do not allow overtime.  For those couples that want to keep their party going, we have several suggestions for fantastic after party locations.

Q: Can I move things around and decorate to suit my purposes, or do I have to leave everything as is? Are there decoration guidelines/restrictions? Can I use real candles?  

The venue is "as is." We have multiple guidelines as far as decorations and what can be used. Unfortunately, fire is a big issue in this area, so we do not allow flame of any sort with the exception of in our designated smoking area.

Q: Is there an outdoor space where my guests can mingle, and can it be heated and/or protected from the elements if necessary? Is there a separate indoor "socializing" space? 

The barn courtyard is the best outdoor entertaining space, but we also have the pavilion which most couples use for cocktail hour entertainment.  We do allow propane patio heaters in the barn as well as swamp coolers if it's going to be a hot one.

Q: Do you have an in-house caterer or a list of "preferred" caterers, or do I need to provide my own? If there is an in-house caterer, do I have the option of using an outside caterer instead?  

We have a preferred list, but allow other caterers as well.  The stipulation is that all catering must be full service - no DIY catering allowed.

Q: If couples do hire their own caterer, are kitchen facilities available for them?  

We have a catering room for food prep and cleanup, but not a licensed kitchen.  Most caterers will come prepared or grill outdoors if needed.

Q: Are tables, linens, chairs, plates, silverware, and glassware provided, or will I have to rent them myself or get them through my caterer? 

We provide ceremony chairs, dining table and chairs, and indoor and outdoor furnishings.  We also have a collection of mismatch tableware, but in some cases it is included, and in others it would have to be rented.

Q: Can I bring my own wine, beer or champagne, and is there a corkage fee if I do? Can I bring in other alcohol? 

We allow wine, beer, and champagne at all times - and 2 signature drinks (containing hard alcohol) during cocktail hour.

Q: Are you licensed to provide alcohol service? If so, is alcohol priced per person? By consumption? Are there additional charges for bar staff? Is there a bar minimum that must be met before the conclusion of the event? 

We do not have a liquor license so couples are responsible for the alcohol service.  We do require a licensed bartender and a WA state Banquet Permit.

Q: Are there restrictions on what kind of music couples can play, or a time by which the music must end? Can the venue accommodate a DJ or live band?  

We allow live bands during the ceremony and cocktail hour only.  We don't have a restriction on what type of music can be played, but music ends at 10pm.

Q: Does the venue have an in-house audio visual system? 

We have an in-house speaker system, but no visual.

Q: Is there parking on site?

We have parking for 75 vehicles and like to recommend group transportation.  Our amazing coordinators at Union Event Co are happy to help set that up.

Q: How many restrooms are there? 

We have a new restroom facility that is located steps from the barn.

Q: Do you offer on-site coordination? If so, what services are included and is there an additional charge for them?  

We require "Wedding Day Management" through Union Event Co -this is a separate charge.

Tin Roof Barn does have liability coverage, but we require all events be covered with private event insurance as well. You can get insurance for your wedding at Wed Safe.

Q: Can couples hire their own vendors (caterer, coordinator, DJ, etc.), or must they select from a preferred vendor list? 

Both... coordination through Union Event Co is required, the others are up to the couple to choose.

Q: Do you offer overnight accommodations? What are the nearest hotels to the venue? 

We do not have overnight accommodations at Tin Roof Barn. Most people stay in Hood River which is only about 15 minutes from the venue. There are plenty of hotels, restaurants, wineries, breweries, and shops to keep all guests happy and entertained.

We have a sign at the entrance, but the venue is easily found through Google maps.
