Infinity Farms strives to provide each and every customer and their guests with unrivaled service, experiences, and simple event scheduling. However, there are always questions when dealing with so many moving parts and planning scenarios. We’ve provided a robust list of our frequently asked questions below to guide you on your journey.
Infinity Farms is a venue-only event facility situated on 13
acres of sleepy, Deep-South farm land located about 45 minuets
east of New Orleans. While 5 acres remain open field, Infinity
Farms boasts 8 acres of carefully manicured gardens, walking
paths, conversation nooks and sparkling fountains. There are
currently three buildings on the property:
The Residence, located atop the hill at the end of our stately, tree-lined drive, is a luxuriously appointed 1,900 square foot home with 2 sleeping rooms, 2 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a formal living room, a formal dining room (with comfortable seating for 12), and a cozy study. Designed by renowned architect, Samuel T. Donelson, and built by former owner, Mr. Tom Long, The modern-classical Residence elegant in its simplicity, perfectly symmetrical and gracefully proportioned, it is an homage to Le Petite Trianon.
The Cottage, a quaint retreat nestled beneath leafy, green myrtles, is a hidden gem. This efficiently designed 600 square foot, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom bungalow comes with a galley kitchen, laundry nook, dining for 2, cozy reading room and an outdoor shower. Its private setting and open floor plan make The Cottage the perfect nest for a lover’s hide-away.
The Pavilion - our gem on the hill - totals 7,000 square feet of luxurious, southern modernity. With 3,000 square feet of reception space artfully designed and wrapped - from floor to ceiling - in sapphire glass, the Pavilion at Infinity Farms is the Gulf South’s newest and most elegant venue. From the two luxuriously appointed guest suites, to the 950 square foot, chef-inspired catering kitchen to the one-touch climate, lighting and audio controls, the Pavillon makes hosting grand events or intimate gatherings effortless.
The Pavilion can comfortably accommodate 320 guests.
We do! We have a lovely, well-lit pea gravel parking lot which can accommodate as many as 75 cars. We have designated tour bus parking as well.
While there are several customizable valet options, typically, valet companies set up on the motor court in front of the residence.
Yes. Yes. And yes. Though the floor to ceiling sapphire glass windows make the Pavilion feel wide open, it is - in fact - fully enclosed. Both floors and all service areas are heated and cooled with one-touch temperature controls.
Yes. We built in convenient one-touch lighting controls and a
state-of-the-art sound system. Key pads are located in the mise
en place corridor and at the bottom of the stairs. There are
speakers throughout the interior and exterior of the Pavilion.
Note: Our lighting - while carefully planned and capable of multiple, dynamic settings - is not considered “event lighting” and cannot be programmed to integrate with strobing or color changing LEDs.
Our kitchen is a caterer’s dream! We have outfitted our 950 square feet of prep space, with an eight-burner stove, a pair of French ovens, two 48" refrigerator/freezer combos, two pro series dishwashers, microwave drawer, large industrial stainless sink and large island with task lighting for food prep. There is an adjacent mise en place equipped with a 700lb ice maker. The kitchen is conveniently located adjacent to the reception floor in the Pavilion, as well as the property’s service entrance.
Yes. The Residence can comfortably accommodate two couples (with the option to host a third couple on the pull out sofa in the study), the Pavilion can comfortably accommodate two couples and the Cottage can comfortably accommodate 1 couple. In all, we have on-site accommodations for 10 - 12 people.
Yes and no. While it is a lovely, smooth walk, it would be very difficult to maneuver a wheel chair through our gravel parking lot, across the grounds to the Pavilion. We do, however, have several options for the elderly and the impaired. Guests who do not wish to travers the property may be dropped off directly to the Pavilion. For those guests who would prefer to take in the grounds, we are happy to offer the use of our golf cart at no extra charge.
We do not. But we would be more than happy to recommend our favorite event planners and/or wedding managers. Just send us an email and ask for our most current vendor list.
If we do not already have an event or overnight guests booked the day before your event, you may use Infinity Farms to rehears at no additional cost. Rehearsals are limited to 1 hour in length and may be booked/confirmed thirty days prior to the event.
The short answer is: not us. The longer and slightly more complicated answer is: it depends on which vendors you’ve hired and what services they offer. Sometimes Day-Of Coordinators are contracted to oversee set-up and break-down. Typically the rental company from which you’ve rented your furniture will do the work of setting up and breaking down tables, chairs and any other furniture/decor that they brought. The caterer usually handles the cleaning of dishes, the breakdown of tablescapes and the gathering of linens. However, if you’re at a loss here, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’d be happy to make some recommendations.
Booking a wedding or large event guarantees access to our property from 12 noon to 11 pm on the day of your event. You may begin setting up any time after noon, and must be finished packing up by 11 pm.
Nope. While we would love to be more flexible, we have found
that it is REALLY difficult to properly manage our calendar when
we offer loose drop-off and pick-up windows.
Caveat: If you decide to add a Rehearsal Dinner to your Infinity Farms booking, then you may load in supplies and decor the day before your wedding - and leave them on property over night. This does not, however, affect your break-down time frame.
All rentals, decor and trash must be removed from the premises. If your vendors do not handle clean-up, just send us an email and we will recommend a trash removal service.
Sure! Just send us an email and ask for our overage rates and terms.
Absolutely! We love to watch guests make our venue their own.
Yes. But only a few.
1) You may not affix anything to the walls, chandeliers, beams, floor or any other structure on property without our expressed permission.
2) Candles must be contained in a glass enclosure. The flame must remain at least 1 inch below the lip.
3) No rice, bird seed, confetti or granular sized objects may be thrown. At all. Anywhere. We’re sorry, but cleanup is impossible. Bubbles are great!
4) We discourage the use of helium balloons (because: sea turtles!), but will allow them so long as they are weighted. You may not intentionally release balloons from our property.
5) While sparklers are permitted, we cannot allow fireworks as they will spook the horses on neighboring properties.
Yes, indeed. Per the County of Pearl River, events and amplified music must conclude by (or before) 11pm on Friday and Saturday night, and by (or before) 10:30pm Sunday through Thursday.
Absolutely not. There are two designated smoking areas on the property. Smoking or vaping outside of these two areas is strictly prohibited.
Nope! We love on-site ceremonies. And we are happy to help you decide how/where to host your ceremony at no extra cost.
No. As Infinity Farms is a venue only facility, we do not own tables, chairs, event furniture, china, silverware or glassware.
Reserving Infinity Farms for a wedding or large event guarantees
access to the whole venue: the Cottage, the Residence, the
Pavilion - and the furniture therein - as well as the
surrounding grounds and any existing outdoor furniture. Check
out our gallery or schedule a tour to take a look at what we
have on property.
In addition to the existing furnishings, we have 8 Italia Lava propane heaters and 24 luxury fur wraps that can be rented during the colder months. If you are interested in either of these, send us an email and we’ll work up a custom quote.
Yes! You may provide your own caterer or select one from our list of VENDORS . The caterers on our list range in price, availability and style. They have all worked in our space before and they know our rules, so they are a terrific resource.
YES! For weddings and large events, alcohol service must be
provided by a licensed and insured provider. Some caterers offer
bartending services. If yours does not, you will have to
contract with a bartending service. Your bartender/service
provider will likely have their own policies for sourcing and
For the safety of our hosts and their guests, we ask that all bar service end a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the conclusion of the event.
We do, indeed! Our kitchen is a caterer’s dream! We have outfitted our 950 square feet of prep space, with an eight-burner stove, a pair of French ovens, two 48" refrigerator/freezer combos, two pro series dishwashers, microwave drawer, large industrial stainless sink and large island with task lighting for food prep. There is an adjacent mise en place equipped with a 700lb ice maker. The kitchen is conveniently located adjacent to the reception floor in the Pavilion, as well as the property’s service entrance.
Sure! We have a Preferred Vendor List, but if you would like to hire a vendor who is not already on that list you’re welcome to do so. We just ask that they be licensed (where appropriate) and insured. We also ask that you obtain our approval before bringing them on property.
Tours of the venue are by appointment only. Send us an email to schedule yours today!
For a variety of reasons, we have chosen not to publicize our booking calendar. We know that this adds a step to your process, and we apologize for that inconvenience. If you’d like to inquire about a specific date (or several dates), just send us an email and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.
We cannot officially reserve a date without a deposit and a signed contract. However, we know that choosing a venue for an event is a big decision and we understand that you will likely compare multiple venues and dates, so… if - after touring Infinity Farms - you remain undecided, we can place a 7 day “notification hold” on one date. There is no charge for a notification hold. Should anyone attempt to book your date during the 7 day hold, we will reach out to you with the right of first refusal.
Yes. Please refer to your contract documents for information about the required security deposit.
We do www.wedsure.com
To secure your date on the Infinity Farms Event calendar, we
will need three things from you:
1) A signed contract
2) A check for 20% of your rental fee
3) A separate check for 10% of your rental fee to be held as a refundable security deposit.
Great! We love to host smaller, more intimate gatherings. Because Infinity Farms is often booked for weddings or large events, we do not typically book smaller gatherings any more than 30 days in advance. However, if you’re interested in securing a date and have some flexibility, please send us an email! We’d love to work with you.
Unless overnight accommodations are booked in conjunction with a wedding or large event, we require a 3 night minimum. All bookings are subject to the approval of scheduling manager.
You will receive an email with check in procedures (gate codes and key pad combinations) the morning prior to check in. To check out: put used towels in the tub/shower, remove your luggage, food and trash, turn off the lights and lock the door behind you. You may check-in as early as 3:00pm. You must check out by 12:00 noon.
Just send us an email to inquire as to the availability of your
dates. Assuming your dates are open, we’ll just need a signed
contract and a 20% deposit to secure your reservation.
Note: Because Infinity Farms is often booked for weddings or large events, we typically only book overnight accommodations within 30 days of a desired date.
