Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I’ve never heard of Timber Creek.  How long have you been in business?

Timber Creek was originally founded as Kovac’s hall.  We began business in 2005 and have been honored to host over 600 events over the years.  Starting in mid-November 2017 Kovac’s hall was closed for 4 months to undergo an extensive renovation.  We reopened in April 2018 under a new name and same ownership as Timber Creek Event Center.

How many guests can you seat?

We are able to comfortably seat 300 guests inside and 280 guests on our hard surface outdoor ceremony patio.  We have enough tables and chairs to accommodate these numbers.  We have hosted a few weddings of up to 360 guests.  In order to accomplish this seating must be done using rectangle tables to better utilize space.  You would be responsible for the additional tables and chairs needed for events larger than 300 guests.  Please discuss this with us prior to booking so we can make sure we can meet the needs of you and your guests.

Is a deposit required to secure my wedding date and what is the cancellation fee?

A deposit in the amount of $1,000 is required to reserve your date.  This amount will be applied as payment toward the facility rental.  50% payment is due 9 months prior to your event.  Balance is due 14 days prior to your event.  In the event of cancellation, all payments are non-refundable unless we are able to re-book the date to another customer.  In the event we can re-book the cancelled date at an equal rate all payments will be fully refunded.

What is your vendor policy?

While we will be glad to recommend vendors for your event, Timber Creek has an open vendor policy for your convenience.  There are no additional fees or up-charges for outside vendors.

Do you allow alcohol?

Beer, wine, and mixed drinks are permitted at our venue.  You may supply your own alcohol for your guests however we do require you hire a licensed bartender and serve alcohol from the bar.  If you are charging a fee for drinks you will need to contract with a licensed bar service that holds a liquor by the drink license.  We can make recommendations if needed.

If using your outdoor area for our ceremony, what is the backup plan in the event of weather?

Any outdoor wedding may be moved at your request to our timber framed indoor reception area.  We will provide staff to flip the space.  Keep in mind that there may be some turn around time after the ceremony if tables and chairs need to be moved or rearranged in order to facilitate an indoor event due to weather.

How many other weddings may be booked on my day?

We only allow one event per day.  It will be yours only.

Are there any additional fees or deposits?

Depending on the number of guests and type of event Timber Creek may require a damage deposit at our discretion.  If a damage deposit is requested this will be discussed at the time of booking.  The full amount will be returned within 5 business days from your event provided there is no damage to the facility.  No other fees or deposits are required.  Regardless of a request or non-request for a damage deposit any damage to the facility by guests of the contracting party and associated costs of repair are the sole responsibility of the contracting party.

Do I have to pay sales tax?

While we are required to charge sales tax on the rental of our venue, sales tax is already figured into our listed package pricing.

Who is responsible for setup, clean up, and tear down?

In order to make your day worry free, our event staff will take care of all setup of tables & chairs inside and outside as well as cleanup and tear down after your event.  You would be responsible for decorating.  We do request that you remove any items that you wish to keep at the conclusion of your event.  Timber Creek will not be responsible for items left after your event.  Bridal suite and grooms room should be left visibly clean and ready for us to deep clean.

What time can the wedding party or vendors get access to the facility?

Access to the facility begins at 3pm Friday if booking a Saturday or weekend wedding package. For Sunday weddings access begins at 7am the day of your wedding.
