My husband and I were wed at Clay Hill Farms on Friday, June 18, 2010. We were paying for the majority of our wedding and Clay Hill was so privy to our situation. They even took late night calls from us when we were confused about some budgetary items.
The wedding plan staff listened to every request and concern, and checked in often with us. We live over 5 hours away from Clay Hill, but I never felt like this was ever an obstacle. The food was outstanding, and had ALL of my guests raving, even today! On our big day, we felt like the king and queen, and that was because Clay Hill made it that way. During out photo session, my husband leaned in and said he was so impressed by the staff's presence and attentiveness, and how special they made even him feel.
The grounds were breathtaking and made for timeless pictures. The wedding package they offered to us was all inclusive and made decision making easy as I trusted their guidance completely. The vendors they choose to work with are of the highest quality and on my day I didn't have one mistake, everything was flawless.I was also comforted by their green initiatives and their sustainable way of conducting all of their business.
The entire experience was perfect, beginning to end, and I wouldn't have changed a thing. I have heard the very same compliments from family members, bridal party members and guests. Thank you to Clay Hill for making my day one that we, and my guests, will never forget!

My husband and I were married at Clay Hill Farm in June 2012. We picked CHF because of the location, beautiful grounds, and wonderful food. The staff at Clay Hill Farm were wonderful to work with throughout the process, very friendly and professional. They made everything flow so easily, I felt taken care of and didn't have to worry about a thing! It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend Clay Hill Farm.

My husband and I got married 9/7/12 and we decided to plan our wedding in less than 5 months. Clay Hill was simply amazing. We knew nothing on how to plan for a wedding. Jen and Rachel helped us from start to finish. They helped us every step of the way. They offered us many ceremony and meal packages with very reasonable prices. We never felt nickled and dimed... Like you find at other venues. We appreciated that we had the whole venue to ourselves and guest for the ceremony and reception. The food was amazing. Our family and friends could not stop talking about the food. Clay Hill is a gorgeous venue for photos. In the end it almost seemed to easy to plan our wedding. Thank you Clay Hill!!!!!

Clay Hill Farm hosted both my and my sister's wedding a year ago, and there's a reason we returned - it's absolutely perfect! The natural elements were very important to us, and as a farm/garden/bird sanctuary, it had those elements to offer.
While looking at other sites, we found that Clay Hill Farm offered so much more without similar amounts of "extra fees" - it was simple and straight forward, and they pride themselves on creating great weddings - so we trusted them with the big day.
The two wedding planners at Clay Hill are absolutely wonderful - very accommodating and so practiced that they make everything so much calmer and clearer.
We had two wonderful experiences at Clay Hill Farm, my mother even mentioned that she's sorry she doesn't have a third daughter to marry there. It's a wonderful place! And many of our guests mentioned that they'd never had such enjoyable wedding food - it helps that they are an award-winning restaurant too!

Clay Hill Farm was amazing. From the start, Rachel and Jen came across as seasoned professional wedding coordinators, explaining things to us, and anticipating our questions. They had everything well in hand on the day of the wedding, even though it rained! They coordinated with my live musicians, and officiant, and helped to direct the bridal party when they should start walking during the processional. The final cost was 2500 less than my dad expected, so that was nice, and you can't beat the atmosphere. It stopped raining after the ceremony, so guests could walk in the gardens (and apps were brought to them!). There were no hidden costs, just like Jen and Rachel said - no cake cutting fee ridiculousness. It was the perfect venue and amazing wedding coordinators. The food was also amazing - we chose the cheapest option (chicken for everyone), and it was still fantastic. I would highly recommend Clay Hill for your event, and I can tell you the package we chose was amazing and pretty affordable (I mean, weddings are expensive, but relatively affordable), but you can choose to have decadent, over-the-top food and extras, or the bare minimum like we did, and it was STILL my dream wedding.

(Disclaimer: I won the 2012 Green Wedding Giveaway contest hosted by Clay Hill Farm, but all opinions are my own.)
Clay Hill Farm was a magical place to get married at. It has beautiful grounds, a commitment to being a respectful steward of the environment, and the food is the best wedding food I've ever had. The staff were accommodating to our requests and the value for the wedding package is well worth it. We had shopped around at other venues before entering the Green Wedding Giveaway and hands down, Clay Hill Farm has the best value, staff and service. Everyone there is so friendly and committed to each couple's unique vision for their wedding. They are professional and easy to work with, and I would highly recommend them as a wedding venue.

Clay Hill Farm is the perfect place to set your wedding. Jennifer and Rachel are incredibly helpful, they make sure to stay in contact and always have answers to any questions you might have. I did a lot of my own decorating, and their reception area is incredibly receptive to any decor. And NOTHING matches the outside gardens for beauty!! It's basically a no-fuss site for a gorgeous wedding, everything's all set for you already.
The food...fabulous! I know many brides can't even remember what they ate, but I do! The food tasted great, I found myself looking at their regular menu to see if I could go back for a "date night" and eat it again!
So many of our guests said that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever been to, and we owe a lot to Clay Hill Farm for that!

We LOVED Clay Hill Farm! It was the perfect place to have our wedding AND reception. It was nice not to have to waste time traveling between the wedding and reception site. The place is BEAUTIFUL and cozy! No need for a lot of extra decoration. Once we finalized all the plans with them we were just able to sit back and enjoy the day. They coordinated everything for us! They are even able to recommend some good vendors...especially the DJ. We got MANY compliments from guests at how beautiful our wedding was...and to this day we STILL do! My only complaint was that we felt a little rushed at the rehearsal (but the wedding was so well coordinated by them I don't think we needed as much rehearsing as I thought). And because we didn't want to pay the extra for an evening wedding we had to be out by 4 so they could turn it back into a restaurant. It turned out to be a beautiful day and I wouldn't change a thing! We left feeling VERY SATISFIED!

We got married at Clay Hill Farm on 10-10-10. From our first meeting with the wedding planner, Jen, we knew our wedding venue search was completed! Immediately, we knew we would be in good hands!
The wedding was our dream wedding. Everything was picture perfect! The guest could not stop raving about the service, food, ceremony, reception and the scenery! Clay Hill treated all of our guests like royalty. The food was amazing and people continue to complement us on the quality and quantity of the food!
I recommend Clay Hill to everyone looking to get married. The wedding planners are amazing and they know their stuff! They have an answser for all your questions. You will not regret choosing Clay Hill Farm for your wedding venue!
