You are not allowed to bring your own. Vendors must provide proof of licensing and insurance to Fourth Street Gardens three (3) weeks before wedding is to take place.
DJs are required to turn the music off at 10:00pm due to Gem County ordinance. Bars are asked to stop serving then and we will ask that you be done with your clean up by 11:30pm.
