A signed contract and 50% of the rental fee is required to reserve your date. The remaining 50% is due 90 days before your event. We accept payment in check or credit/debt.

Can I have both my ceremony and reception at The Schoolhouse?

Yes! We have a beautiful outdoor space and a large indoor reception space. If the weather is bad outside, we can accommodate the ceremony indoors and your caterer can flip the room for the reception.

Can I bring in my own alcohol?

Yes! You can bring in your own alcohol for your event. We just require a Venue approved TABC bartender to serve. Cash bars are not permitted.

Are outside caterers allowed?

Yes! You can use any caterer you’d like as long as they have a health permit, food managers certificate, and $1M+ general liability insurance. 

What about parking?

We have a parking lot on-site with 50 spaces. For events over 100 guests, we highly recommend a valet service. We will coordinate valet services and cost varies based on the number of guests, but the average price for 100 guests for 5 hours of service is $1,000.

Do you have a catering kitchen?

Yes, we have a large room with prep tables, 2-compartment sink, hotbox, freezer, and a large fridge that your caterer can use.
