  •       

  • TAPE!
  • Please do not use tape on the floor.  The adhesive will pull up the finish on the floor.  We do have some floor cord tracks that can be used instead.

  • ALCOHOL…
  • You may bring in your own or have a bartending service provide it. ALL alcohol has to be served by a TABC licensed and insured (up to $1 million) bartender.  This applies to any and all alcohol (kegs, margarita machines, wine, etc).  Proof of bartending requirements must be provided to us prior to your reception.  When alcohol is served, security must also be provided.  Security services will determine if more than one officer is needed.  Our preferred security is Gean Blaylock with the Collin County Sheriffs department.  
  • His contact info is 469-667-6833.

  • VENDORS…
  • We have recommended vendors we can share with you, but you may use any vendor of your choice!  All vendors must be insured and must clean up after your event.  Please ensure that your caterers provide bussing of plates + drinks during your reception or you will need to provide the staff for that.

  • CANDLES…  
  • Any candle arrangement is acceptable to use on the fireplace and mantel, but please do not use tall candles or candelabras on tables that are at risk of falling over.  We prefer them to have water in the base to extinguish if tipped over.

  • SPARKLERS…  
  • Sparklers must be longer than 2 feet.  The bride + groom assume responsibility for any liability from sparklers if they choose to use them.  

  • FIRE PIT…
  • For safety reasons, children under 12 are not allowed to be outside in the fire pit and Ceremony Areas.

  • CLEAN UP…
  • During your reception you are responsible for someone buss the tables and collect the trash (your caterer can usually help you with this).  When your event is over, our Stone Crest® staff will deep clean the floors, tables and chairs.  You and your vendors are responsible for cleaning up and removing all decorations after the event.

  • LOUNGE ROLL-UP DOOR…  
  • If the weather permits, the lounge roll-up door can be opened.  If so, we ask that you have the lounge barn doors closed during that time to prevent a loss of heating + cooling in the main area of the venue. 

  • “YARD” GAMES…
  • We have a bag toss, and ring/hook game down by the fire pit, but feel free to bring additional games for your event. 

  • SPEAKER SYSTEM: 
  • We have a 95dB max.  NO SUB-WOOFERS ALLOWED- loudspeakers and towers are allowed.  There is a conduit with XLR cables that run behind the fireplace to allow a speaker on each side without having a visible cord in front of fireplace.  DJs + bands can connect to our system via an XLR input at the areas in the diagram above.  Usually, DJs will have 2 loudspeakers near the dance floor and then connect to our system for sound in the main area, lounge, bathrooms, patio, ceremony site and fire pit area.

  • VIDEO + SLIDESHOW…   
  • The best option is a USB or DVD.  We have a DVD/USB player you can use that is connected to that TV.  ***Please allow time to test your slideshow prior to reception.  iMovies has functionality that allows you to scroll pictures (save in all the format options available, power point does NOT work).  ***Please bring the device that the slideshow was created on, so if all else fails we can plug the hdmi straight into it (don’t forget the charger!). 

  • GOBO PROJECTOR…
  • You can order your custom gobo online for approx $55 at,  www.goboman.com.
  • The dimensions are a custom size of 26.8/14 mm.  If you are going to use the GOGO, please bring it the morning of your event for install and setup.  The projector is in a fixed spot that can only display on the fireplace between the 2 mantels.
