  • My fiancé and I planned our wedding in 7 months and could not have done it without the amazing staff at the Farmhouse! Their packages made it easy to plan everything at the reception, once we selected our package, the staff took it from there. They met with us in person wherever we asked to meet to go over information for our wedding day and were very thorough. They took all of our stress of planning away and made our wedding day perfect! They included decorations for the season so we didn’t have to do much as far as decorating, aside from our personal decorations which the staff set up for us the night before! Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue is and our pictures turned out so nicely from our ceremony to our outdoor pictures in the garden to the reception pictures on the large dance floor. Perfect place for a December wedding! All of their package prices are listed on their website, so they are upfront about pricing.
