There's something special about old barns...
ethereal romance and a dash of vintage elegance
At Tin Roof Barn, we specialize in creating an unforgettable experience for both you and your guests. We have gorgeous indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception options, vintage furnishings, unique decor, and a relationship with some of the best wedding vendors the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Your wedding is a celebration that will likely be remembered for years, but we can make it an unforgettable experience that will last a lifetime.
Planning & Event Management
Union Event Co, our exclusive planning and event management team, is a required vendor for all weddings at Tin Roof Barn. “Wedding Day Management” begins 30 days prior to your wedding and starts at $1800. If you need additional help with planning, event styling or cleanup, these are optional add-ons. The pricing for Union Event Co is not included in the venue’s site fee.
Tin Roof Barn selectively partners with outstanding catering companies to provide a delicious, full service, and all-smiles experience.
Should you wish to have a full-service caterer who is not on our list, there is an additional fee.
Why We Require Full Service Catering
We want to ensure you and your guests have the best experience possible on your wedding day, which is not something we can guarantee by letting just anyone come to our estate and “cater.” All caterers must go through a mandatory venue walkthrough, receive a yearly update on venue policies, and be familiar with the Union Event Co timeline for Tin Roof Barn weddings. These requirements make booking with them easy for you and stress-free. Full-service caterers are required to staff according to the total number of guests, complete the entire food and beverage cleanup (so you don’t have to!), and stay onsite til 10:30pm.
Did you know that many caterers, unless required to do so, will depart after the dinner service leaving you to clean up the desserts, the bar, the tables, the leftovers, etc? Cleaning up is not the way you want to end your fabulous celebration, so we have created guidelines for our caterers that ensure you will do nothing but celebrate with your guests throughout the entire evening.
Although each caterer has the ability to refine the dinner selection to your specific budget, we recommend using an average meal cost of $75 per person when determining a rough estimate for catering. Your price may be over or under, depending on style, budget, and selection, but this is a realistic number for general calculations.
Bar & Beverage
For those who choose to serve alcohol, we require that you utilize your catering company’s professional bartenders. Bartenders are required to be onsite anytime alcohol is being served and similar to the caterers, they will complete the bar cleanup as well.
At Tin Roof Barn, we do not allow a full bar; however, we do allow wine, beer, and champagne all night! We also allow your choice of two Signature Drinks containing hard alcohol during cocktail hour.
Your wedding at Tin Roof Barn is a private event on private property, so you will need to provide the venue with a WA State Banquet Permit ($11), which allows you to legally serve alcohol to your guests. Cash bars are not allowed. We do not charge a corkage fee, nor do we oversee where you provision your alcohol. As the responsible party and holder of the Banquet Permit, you are allowed to BYOB.
DJs & Live Music
We partner exclusively with Dustin Laur, aka, DJ Beatfarmer to ensure you enjoy a seamless ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception when it comes to music and entertainment. Dustin is a tried and true favorite and once you meet him, you’ll see why we adore him and his genuinely compassionate approach to creating style and ambiance customized for your celebration.
We allow live music during your ceremony and cocktail hour, or up until 6pm.
You will be required to purchase WedSafe event insurance for minimum liability coverage of one million dollars ($185). They also offer cancelation insurance, which while we hope is never needed, is wonderful to have in case something comes up and you need to cancel with your vendors.
Your lead coordinator at Union Event Co will create a custom timeline for your unique requests throughout the day, but our venue has a general timeline that they will follow.

Earliest Guest Arrival: 3pm
