DJ’s and musicians are required to provide their own electrical cords, etc. and means of transport for their equipment to and from the event site. It is the responsibility of the Contracting Guest to notify outside contractors that they are responsible for all movement of their equipment. DJ’s and musicians are required to tape down all exposed cords in areas where guests might walk. Belle Terra retains the right to control the volume of any music played indoors or outdoors. Outdoor music must stop by 11:00 a.m.
We have ample space to park a limousine or two, to unload your horse and carriage, antique car, or land your helicopter or sea plane. Vehicles may temporarily park in front of the buildings for the purposes of unloading and loading only and must be moved to the designated parking areas immediately upon completion of loading and unloading. Keep in mind what the camera will see. Nothing mars beautiful wedding pictures more than vendor or guests vehicles thoughtlessly parked for their convenience.
You may bring your own alcohol, or you may leave that to a caterer licensed by the state to do so. If you are serving mixed drinks, a licensed bartender is required. Drinks must stop being served one hour before the end of the reception. You will want to do your part to make sure that everyone safely enjoys himself or herself. A security guard should be considered. Bartenders must provide Belle Terra with COI and Belle Terra named as secondary on COI.
