Frequently Asked Questions
Macedonia Hills is not a corporate venue. We are a family owned and run business, and as such we are meticulous in our care and attention to our customer's experience. We also don't have to enforce a bunch of corporate rules and regulations. If therefor you have any special needs or questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we will try our best to accommodate you.

The barn venue, bridal cottage and surrounding grounds can be booked at a rate of $4,000 for the day (2024 rate). The Groom's Suite can be rented separately for an additional fee of $500 for the day.

3 / Can I hold my ceremony here, too?
Yes! Both the reception and ceremony can be held at Macedonia Hills. We pride ourselves as being a venue that can conveniently service your entire wedding - getting ready, photos, ceremony & reception- all in one walkable location. In fact most of our wedding parties do just that. We have two beautiful outdoor areas for staging your perfect ceremony either of which is included in the fee.
4/ Can we have access to the property to decorate the day before the event?
Yes, our policy is not to book multiple weddings in one weekend so that you can decorate and have your ceremony rehearsal the day before your wedding. Ceremony rehearsals can last up to 1.5 hours. It can be held the day before your wedding, or if need be, at some other agreed time.

Yes, we have two suites available on the property. Both are a short walk from each other, the ceremony areas and the barn venue. Both have heating and cooling, a full kitchen, bathrooms, and plenty of space to get ready and hang out in before the ceremony.
7 / What is your cancellation policy?
Our $500 date deposit is non-refundable, but you are permitted to cancel up to 10 months prior to your event for the remaining balance.
8 / What is the contingency plan for unexpected weather?
We can easily hold the wedding ceremony inside the barn, which is also a beautiful ceremony site. We can add additional seating or else the guests can use the seating that was intended for the reception. We are happy to discuss the options with you.
9 / Is the barn heated and cooled?
The barn does not have a heating and cooling system. This is why we are generally closed in July and August and December through February. We have multiple ceiling fans, and the barn stays surprisingly cool in the warmer months when all the doors are open. You are welcome to bring in additional fans. When the weather is expected to be cold, we will provide propane heaters and a tent heater that helps to keep the barn at a more comfortable temperature. Nevertheless, we cannot predict the weather and we cannot provide a constant temperature, so please keep that in mind when choosing a wedding date.
10 / Are we allowed to bring our own alcohol?
No, our special use permit does not allow outside alcohol and since we have a license to sell and serve beer and wine, outside vendors are not permitted. Given that we are your only option, we strive to make our packages competitively priced, and you are welcome to order alcohol a la carte based on your own estimated alcohol usage.
