Frequently Asked Questions
Are fireworks allowed?
No fireworks, Chinese lanterns or sparklers of any kind are allowed on site under any circumstances. You don't want to be the one who burns the place down.
what's the policy on food & alcohol?
We believe food is a big part of your wedding + want you to have a choice in who you use. For this reason we do not have in-house catering. You are welcome to bring in any caterer you wish, however, we do require that all caterers are insured + complete an on-site walk through with a member of our staff 30 days prior to your event. If you need a list of recommendations we've got a great list of qualified + insured vendors that work with us on a regular basis.
Our alcohol policy is BYOB. Two TABC-certified bar tenders are included in your venue rental + all alcohol must be served by them. You can purchase alcohol through Bar Butlers or bring it in yourself.
What Is Your Pet Policy?
All animals must be pre-approved by VWR + TCH management. In addition, a pet addendum must be signed before allowing your furry friend on property for ceremony + post ceremony photos.

Vista West Ranch: When arriving on your wedding day, the venue will be set up with all tables, linens (provided in your rental) and pin spot lighting in place according to the layout provided. Ceremony site and reception chairs as well as end of night breakdown/cleanup will be taken care of by our staff. You are just responsible for your own personal items and decor.
How Does Set Up + Break Down Work?
Of course! You can customize VWR or TCH to your heart’s desire provided that any existing decor is not damaged in the process. We ask that you not use permanent glue or nails larger than a tack on any surfaces. Our policy is simple whatever you put up must come back down.

What If I Need More Time?
Nope! If you feel you need added security for your event let us know and we can get you in contact with a man in blue from the local Sheriff's Office.
