You will not regret choosing Chaumette! My husband and I recently got married at Chaumette's Barn, on September 24, 2016, and everything was perfect! When we were originally planning our wedding, it took us a bit to determine exactly what "feel" we wanted. After viewing many... Read More venues, we decided that Chaumette was exactly what we were going for. It is a laid back atmosphere where we were able to envision our guests letting loose and truly celebrating our marriage with us. (After all, that's what it's all about, right?) This is exactly what we wanted and exactly what we got! Nothing about the wedding felt "stuffy" and our guests were able to kick back and enjoy the night with us. We also loved the solidarity of Chaumette. We've been to several weddings where it seemed that guests were looking to the next thing by dinner, asking, "Where are we going out after this?" When you're bringing all of your guests together for one day, it's nice to have their focus and know that you're going to get to see them before, during, and after the wedding. Hosting our wedding at Chaumette allowed everyone to step away from the chaos of real life and enjoy a weekend away, with us, to celebrate. On that note, I was originally worried about it being a bit secluded. How are our guests going to get there and back? What about travel for vendors? It all ended up coming together, perfectly, without much effort. Many of our guests stayed on-site in Chaumette's Villages. Other guests stayed in Farmington at a hotel that provided a shuttle. As for vendors, there were several who traveled to Chaumette for no charge or for a very small fee (which would have been required for travel to any location). This was not the headache that I anticipated and the solidarity noted above outweighed any planning needed due to Chaumette's location. One final reason to choose Chaumette: it's a one stop shop and everything they offer is amazing. When we were looking at venues, I could not fathom the additional work required when you rent a venue that is really just a "space." Looking back, I still cannot imagine this. There is already so much on your plate when you are planning a wedding. The thought of renting everything, down to knives and forks, is crazy. With Chaumette, everything is included. Additionally, they have on-site catering that is top-knotch, and your rental includes a planner. (Shoutout to Beth, who became my right-hand woman and was SO helpful.) Also, you can hold your ceremony on site as well, which we did on the Barn Lawn. This all made planning so much easier. To summarize, Chaumette is gorgeous. The wine is great. The food is amazing. The staff is amazing. We are so pleased with our decision to marry and celebrate at Chaumette!

What we really loved the most about Chaumette was the fact that we had a day of coordinator. Our coordinator, Beth, made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it.

Reviewed on 10/27/2015 Kirsten K

I just had my wedding at Chaumette this past weekend (10-24-15). Everything was amazing. From the moment we met with our Day of Event Coordinator, Sharon, over a year a ago we knew we were in good hands. They were EXTREMELY helpful in providing information you didn't even know... Read More you would need. They clearly have done this many times before and it definitely showed throughout our entire planning process and the day of our wedding. We ended up renting villas the night before our wedding so that we would already be on property that morning to get ready. Since check-in time in the villas isn't guaranteed until 4:00 PM we thought it was best to make sure we had our villas before then for a 5:00 PM ceremony time so this is why we got 2 villas for the night before (1 for bridesmaids to get ready in and 1 for groomsmen to get ready in). We would definitely recommend doing this. It made everything so easy the day of already being there. If you do not want to rent the villas you are also able to get ready in the Spa area if you are getting your hair & makeup done by them. If you are not getting hair & makeup done by them you can use the downstairs locker room area (however this is not private). I wanted to use my own vendor for hair and makeup so we went with the villas and were very pleased with them. Our wedding guests actually ended up renting out all of the villas to stay in that night. It was awesome to have so many of our friends and family staying on site. The villas were amazing. Very open and clean. They were very accommodating with letting us have a late check-in because we were driving in late Friday night from St. Louis after our rehearsal dinner. I would 100% recommend staying in the villas. We had our wedding ceremony on the lawn outside of the barn. It turned out beautiful! We were forecasted for 90% chance of rain, but thankfully we ended up being clear all day! The good news though, if you do end up having rain they have great plan B options for rain. There is a chapel on the property, however our wedding would have been to large for the chapel. They also have a loft in the barn that you can use. Our plan B would have been to have our ceremony on the patio where the dance floor is and then clear the chairs out. While waiting for the ceremony to begin we were able to hang out in a room they have right next to the bathrooms. It was heated and worked out perfectly so that guests weren't trying to find us before the ceremony. While we were waiting Sharon was very attentive and helped get the ceremony moving. For our reception we had it in The Barn. The barn is right next to the lawn that we had the ceremony at so it was very easy for guests to go straight from the ceremony into the barn for cocktail hour. Our wedding was a little bit larger than what the barn would normally hold but they gave us great options to accommodate our guests. We ended up putting tables on the porch and also on the patio and it worked out great. There are SO many amazing places for photos on their property.If you are planning on having a wedding here I would allow extra time for photos because there are so many cool areas for great shots! Of course, the vineyards are a great place for photos. The willow grove area also looks great. We ended up taking most of our pictures around the barn and in the loft. The food was amazing! So many compliments! Overall - AWESOME staff & venue!
