FAQ

Q: How late can we play music?

Last dance can be held as late as 11:30pm.

Q: Am I able to provide my own DJ for my event?

Due to the high quality of the equipment, lighting and pre event coordination our DJ services are built into our package so we do not permit outside DJ's. 

Q: How early can we have our ceremony?

Ceremony start times begin at 5pm or after. Morning or mid-day events are possible as well. Please ask for alternative starting times if you prefer something other than an evening event.

Q: What time are we able to arrive for Photography?

Most Photographers begin 3-4 hours prior to the ceremony start time.

Q: What is required to serve alcohol at my reception?

The majority of our clients purchase a $11 Banquet Permit from the Washington State Liquor Control Board enabling you to purchase your own alcohol. Our contract requires that our clients hire a WA State Licensed Bartender for pouring of alcohol during the entire reception. 

Q: Who is allowed to enter the interior of the Moore Mansion?

The Moore Mansion was restored (not renovated or remodeled). As such it does not have emergency exit doors, fire sprinklers systems and other modern features. As a result, we are limited to having only a small number of people in the building at any one time. Typically access is only provided for the bride, groom, photographer and bridesmaids. 

Q: I have over 200 guests. How does that affect my package?

A: We can accommodate up to 350+ guests but there is a 15% additional charge and there may be additional rental items required.

Q: Am I able to provide my guests with my own food?

Yes, you are able to bring your own food however we have had great success with several local catering companies.  If you need a suggestion please feel free to give us a call.

Q: At the end of the night what do I have to clean-up?

The Moore Mansion will clean up all of the items that we have provided but clients are required to have all decor items removed from the tables/linens by the end of the event.  Clients may return the following morning to remove any remaining items.

Q:  Do you provide overnight accommodations in the mansion for wedding couples or guests?

The mansion has been restored to its original purpose as a family residence. While we are delighted to share it with our bridal clients, we do not provide any overnight accommodations. There are numerous quality hotels nearby and we are only five minutes from the Tri Cities airport.
