We had a great experience shooting scenes for our feature film production at this location. Nicole, Todd, and Stephanie were terrific with communication and really went the extra mile to accommodate our needs. We would definitely work with them again on another project!

We LOVED this space! I would film every shoot here if I could. Emily & Eric's home is absolutely beautiful and already dressed to perfection making it an art department's dream. Emily & Eric are also probably the nicest location hosts I've come across - super communicative and just all around good, genuine people.

About Yard Space

Yard spaces are a perfect choice for hosting various events because of its spacious outdoor area coupled with beautifully manicured landscaping. This type of venue offers plenty of room for guests to mingle and its light-filled atmosphere creates a peaceful ambiance. The tree-lined perimeter of the yard provides natural shade and privacy, while the lush green lawns are perfect for outdoor seating and tables; the variety of trees and shrubs also provide additional visual interest and texture to the area. In addition, several pathways wind their way through the venue and lead to other areas of interest like gazebos or firepits.

To enhance any event taking place at the yard venue, there are also options to install lighting fixtures, such as bistro lights or tiki torches, that can add a touch of sophistication and vibrancy to the night. Furthermore, several buildings on site can be used for hosting different functions — from bridal suites and catering kitchens to public restrooms and live music performances. To provide comfort from harsh weather conditions during events held outdoors at this venue, tents can be rented from various rental companies.

Overall, the yard venue has all the amenities necessary to accommodate any type of event in style and comfort while providing a unique outdoor experience that guests will enjoy.

The Best Events for Yard Spaces

  • Wedding Ceremonies
    If you want a unique wedding in an intimate setting, a yard venue may just be the perfect choice for you. With a beautiful garden, plenty of natural light, and an open-air atmosphere, a yard can be transformed into a truly magical venue. Depending on the size of the yard, guests can enjoy an outdoor dance floor, live music, and delicious food; you can also use props or fixtures to create an inviting environment such as string lights, colorful paper lanterns, or whimsical decorations.

  • Birthday Parties
    Celebrate a birthday in style with a fun outdoor gathering in the yard venue; you can set up a bouncy house or inflatable slide for kids to play in while adults relax at tables and chairs scattered around the area. Many activities can be coordinated during the event, such as painting pottery pieces with friends or planting flowers together. Furthermore, you can get your friends to bring their favorite dishes for an alfresco potluck meal followed by music and dancing through the night.

  • Barbecue
    Host an unforgettable summertime barbecue with friends and family at a beautiful backyard venue. You can set up grills to serve classic favorites like hamburgers and hot dogs plus more interesting specialties like grilled veggies or vegan burgers; also, keep everyone entertained with lawn games such as cornhole or horseshoes along with other options such as giant Jenga sets or giant checkers boards. You may even gather around for conversation over drinks then settle in for some karaoke once it gets dark outside.

  • Picnics
    Pack some delicious snacks and head outdoors to enjoy a picnic in this unique space! Set up blankets on the grassy area where you can spread out with some comfy pillows while munching on finger foods like sandwiches and wraps. To keep the energy up, you can play some music softly through speakers before stargazing under the night sky when evening comes around.

What to Look For in Yard Spaces

  • Size
    First and foremost, you want to ensure that the space is large enough to accommodate the number of people attending and any amenities or entertainment you plan to provide. Make sure to measure the area in square feet or meters to get an accurate estimate of how many people it can comfortably fit.
  • Layout
    Consider how much room will be needed for activities, such as eating, dancing, socializing, presentations, performances and the like. Consider any obstacles — like benches, trees, or shrubbery — that may limit the use of certain areas and determine if there are features like pathways or seating areas that could be useful when designing your layout.

  • Style
    When selecting a yard venue, choose one with a style that reflects the personality and theme of your event. Determine whether you need more traditional ground coverings like grass and stone paths or something more unique like gravel and wooden terraces. You should also consider things like lighting fixtures and decorations that could help create the desired atmosphere.

  • Services & Amenities
    Figure out what services and amenities will be required for your event, including catering equipment, audio-visual equipment and more. If these items are not available in the venue itself, you should make preparations to outsource from a third-party vendor before the date of your gathering.

How to Make Yard Events Better

  • Consider the Size
    Measure the area and plan your layout accordingly and make sure the space is large enough to accommodate the guests and activities. Consider any restrictions or guidelines that may need to be followed, such as keeping fire pits a safe distance from trees and tents.

  • Outfit the Space with Unique Decor & Furnishings
    Invest in quality furniture for your event and choose items that will last through rain or shine, including chairs, tables, umbrellas, canopies, and more; consider renting additional furniture if necessary. Moreover, don’t forget the festive decorations that fit your theme; these added touches will make the event even more special.

  • Set the Mood
    Create an appealing environment with ambiance-appropriate music, lighting elements, scenting options, and other sensory stimulators; this can go a long way in setting the tone of your yard event and making it memorable for guests.

  • Check Weather Conditions
    Because a yard event will take place outdoors, you should check the weather conditions on the day of the event. In any case, you should have a backup plan or contingency in place just in case of inclement weather. Moreover, prepare alternate indoor venues nearby if necessary so that all attendees are safe during the event.

  • Check for Safety Issues
    Promote safety above all else by providing first aid kits on site as well as clear instructions regarding exits in case of an emergency. Plus, ensure that all electrical equipment is properly grounded and have qualified staff on hand should any technical issues arise during setup or tear down of the event elements.
