I can’t begin to recommend Kuhs Estate and Farm enough. Our wedding was more beautiful, charming, and fun than I ever could have imagined. And, that just wouldn’t have been possible if we had held it anywhere else or put it together without the...
amazing staff and volunteers at Kuhs.
To begin, the venue is stunning! We got married on the bluffs, had our cocktail hour under the giant tree, and our reception in the barn. The Barn was built more than 100 years ago, it is charming, beautiful, and was just what we wanted. It is a working farm, but everything smelled amazing - like flowers, was clean and well organized, and who gets to take pictures overlooking a river, in sunken gardens, next to a 200 year old oak, in a historical dairy barn, and with the baby animals?!?
Truly, the photos are incredible, but more importantly, the day was amazing. After our ceremony, our family and friends spent the afternoon touring the grounds, playing lawn games, and toasting craft beer among beautiful vintage treasures. Then danced the night away and chatted under the stars. It was wonderful.
The contract does say that the venue can be booked on the alternative days of the weekend: for us that would have been a Friday or Sunday. Although this didn’t end up happening the weekend of our wedding, we were well aware that it was a possibility. Part of the reason we chose Kuhs because unlike other venues where you have 2 or 4 hours allocated for set up time, we had ALL day (13 hours)! It turned out to be plenty of time; my fiancé even had time to play bocce and I got to snuggle a few horses before the wedding.
To make the experience easier and even better, the staff couldn't have been nicer, more accommodating, planful, and kind. The owner, Elizabeth, in particular was great! She was overly generous and always asking how she could support us in having the best day possible. The day of the wedding she was armed with a huge group of staff and volunteers to ensure everything was clean and organized. At every turn they bent over backwards to make our wedding day special and spent the better part of a year helping us plan it. They met with us at least a handful of times, each time walking us patiently through all the possibilities. They recommended great vendors and on the day of, when one didn't show up on time, rather than bother us, they went above and beyond to call them and get it straightened out on our behalf.
These people live and breathe this magical place. They gave us the best day of our lives and a wedding better than we could have imagined. All our guests were in love with the experience, and many have asked to return as volunteers themselves. I would overwhelmingly recommend this place to bride's looking for a chance to have a one-of-a-kind wedding where you get to call the shots and make it your own – Great Gatsby, vintage with a modern twist, country chic - the possibilities are endless and the team at Kuhs will really help make any dream a reality.
We knew what we wanted when we chose Kuhs Farm, somewhere with heart and that's exactly what we got.
