How many people can you accommodate?
We have hosted intimate weddings as well as events with up to 250 guests.

How much does it cost?
Our fee is $4,000 for the use of the grounds to the South and the West of the main house.  We provide water and electrical hook-up, though we require the rental of a back-up generator.

Can we use the front porch?
Yes! The porch is perfect place for your cocktail hour and late evening hang-out.

Can we stay in the house?
At this time, we are not set up to host wedding parties overnight. We can discuss the possibility of indoor shots for a "first look", however.

How many weddings do you have at Rokeby?
As Rokeby is a family residence, we only host two or three weddings a year.

Can we have amplified music?
Amplified music can go until 10:30, and un-amplified music until midnight.

Can we have a bonfire?
Yes!  You can have a beautiful bonfire built by our good friend and artist who will source the wood from Rokeby, and will design a one-of-a-kind bonfire for your event.  Alternatively, you may use a portable fire-pit, so long as it has been approved by us.  If there is a state-wide or county-wide fire ban, then no open flame will be permitted.

Can you help us find vendors?
Yes, we have a list of vendors that we will gladly share with you. You may also bring in your own.

Can we have our "next-day brunch" at the site?
Yes, for an extra fee you may extend the celebration to a next day brunch.

Do you provide wedding planning services?
No, but we have a list of wonderful wedding planners that we would be glad to share with you.

Can we come tour the grounds?
Absolutely! Please contact Marina, our site manager (and resident flower farmer) at shovingleopardfarmflowers@gmail.com.
