Building was built in the 1950s. The floors, ceilings, and walls are all original!
We have three distinct spaces: The Brick Room, The Warehouse, and The Courtyard. You have the ability to have your ceremony and reception all at one location!
We have two amazing vendors you are required to book your bar package through for your event. All alcohol must be provided by one of the vendors. Unfortunately, no other vendors may provide alcohol for events. Please contact Liquid Catering or Southern Libations for pricing!
Our pricing varies between the number of spaces, month, day, time block, and event layout. We are just the space and some. What that means is we provide you with the venue and tables/chairs/linens.
There are 55 parking spots on-site on both sides of The Rutherford. There is an option to add overflow parking at the plaza next door for $150. We do require you to tell your vendors to bring minimal cars. We do ask that no guests park in the residential neighborhood or businesses nearby out of respect to our neighbors.
The Rutherford welcomes, and encourages you to decorate the space however you want. You are more than welcome to bring your own table décor. We only allow licensed and insured vendors to hang from the rafters/ceiling in the space as long as it will not cause permanent damage to the space. In addition, The Rutherford does not allow the use of tacks, nails, glue, or staples. NO GLITTER in décor items is allowed.
