Am I allowed to buy and bring my own alcohol?
Clients are allowed to buy & bring their own alcohol but The Addison Farm requires that the client has a certified, licensed, and insured professional bartender to serve alcoholic beverages. Self-serve alcohol is strictly prohibited. Bartenders can be obtained through the clients’ caterer or a professional bartending service. If the client is serving hard liquor at the event, the state of North Carolina requires an ABC Permit to be purchased.

Is a Wedding Coordinator and/or Planner required for weddings at this venue?
While we do not require a wedding coordinator, we highly recommend having a Coordinator and/or Planner to ensure the success of your event and the integrity of the facility. Coordinators & planners help guide many aspects of a wedding including but not limited to enforcing the timeline of events, installation of décor, vendor coordination and follow up, guest organization, bridal party organization and any additional responsibilities throughout the day of your event. Coordinators and planners also lead Rehearsal’s so the bridal party and immediate families of the Bride & Groom are familiar with their roles on the wedding day.
