What’s Included in the Rental Charges?

We only book one event per floor in any evening, so the party is always private.
The actual party space practically doubles when you add on the reception area,
funky curved bar and the Sausage or Herring Room, all located in the common areas.

Fully Furnished Event Rooms

Each room is decorated with vintage table and chair sets, couch groupings, artwork and exotic rugs. No need for additional rentals of any sort. It all comes included in your rental fee! Yippee! Lots of money left over to spend on tabletop décor.

Setup & Breakdown Time

Saturday and Sunday events are allowed two hours to prep before guests arrive with an additional hour on the back end for packing up personal items.

Décor Drop-Off

The day before your event, feel free to drop off a couple boxes of décor or supplies. We don’t want you carting around a car-load of stuff on your big day.

Onsite Support

Ranch Hands are present every moment of your event to monitor the venue, adjust lighting strength, thermostats, maintain super clean bathrooms, assist with parking vouchers and answer phones.



If our booking calendar allows, the Special Events Team can schedule one 30 minute wedding ceremony rehearsal with your wedding party. Even if you have a short ceremony, it helps to give everyone a trial run at walking down the aisle.

Final Walk-Through Meeting

Before each event our Special Events Team meets with every client, their caterer and event planner to create a final floor plan and timeline for the big day. This helps keep everyone on the same page and is a great time for last minute questions.


Over the years, Catalyst Ranch has collected some of the best and most unique vendors to help enhance any event. Book your event with Catalyst Ranch and we will assist with referrals of all sorts: calypso music, handmade gelato stations, celebrants, transportation services, live bands, rehearsal dinner suggestions, couture wedding gown shops, photographers, performers, you name it!
