I can't say enough good things about Quonquont and the incredible ladies behind everything: Jenelle and Maddy. My husband and I got married there in July 2017. We booked a little over one year in advance and were communicating with Jenelle throughout that year. The venue itself... Read More is stunning; it really requires little to no additional decorations. It was exactly what we wanted: rustic, yet polished and simple, but stunning. Between the outdoor scenery and the beautiful barn, it's hard to not love this place. Our guests gave us many compliments on the location. In addition to the visual aspects, Jenelle and Maddy are truly phenomenal at what they do. They were responsive, flexible, reliable, helpful, and supportive throughout the entire process, no matter how silly or random our questions were. They are very organized and keep a file on each couple they work with. My biggest fear as a bride was that I would be running around the day of my wedding making sure everything was happening as it was supposed to instead of enjoying myself and my day, and Jenelle and Maddy made it so there was no chance of that happening. We told them every detail we wanted and they carried it out. They set up all of our tables and decorations and took it all down. They took care of every detail the day of and did not miss a beat. They were very helpful with recommendations but never pushed vendors or extras on us. You really get what you pay for with this place. Highly recommend!!

My wife and I got married at Quonquont in July and had an absolutely incredible experience. Jenelle and Maddy were supremely helpful from the first visit without ever becoming overbearing. They checked in regularly, accommodated all our requests, and gave us fantastic... Read More recommendations on everything from vendors to work with to specialty cocktails. We had our wedding ceremony outside in the field behind the barn, our cocktail hour on the stone patio and lawn, and our reception in the barn.

Every aspect of this venue is beautiful and they took care of lots of little details that made every step of the process run smoothly, from providing bathroom baskets to setting up all our day-of decorations. They were endlessly professional, always remembered where we were in the planning process and what we had discussed last meeting, and helped us to stay calm and excited throughout. We would highly recommend Quonquont!

Her and the staff onsite did a great job in the time leading up too, during, and after our wedding. They were extremely helpful, providing a list of frequently used and preferred vendors for everything you could need from catering, entertainment, flowers, etc. Having vendors with prior experience and contact with the Quonquont staff lead to a smooth and comfortable process. Even if you have your own vendor in mind, as we did for catering and dinnerware, Jenelle was able to work with them and did a great job in planning and coordinating their roles with us. The staff also did a great job setting up all of our decorations exactly as we envisioned them. Having the freedom to create your own decor and layout, but having it executed by their staff was just what we were looking for. It allowed us and our family and friends to just enjoy the day! They were very flexible through it all, even allowing us to use our own arbor for the ceremony along with a couple other outdoor decor items. As a final note, we had Shawn from Viren Entertainment provide acoustic music for our ceremony and DJ during the reception. His previous history with Quonquont and Jenelle made the entire entertainment process flawless. We never encountered any issues with music volume and our rather energetic guests had a fantastic time on the dance floor! If your looking for a rustic barn venue for your ceremony, reception or both, we would highly recommend visiting Quonquont Farm!

Jenelle, the event coordinator, was so accommodating, and she and my mom toured us around the venue via Skype. The location is gorgeous, with beautiful orchards, magnificent views of the hills and fields--just what we wanted to show our out-of-town guests of New England. The barn that is used for the reception area is definitely appropriate for a wedding. I didn't want a "country" feel to my wedding, and this totally matched my vision for elegance while still staying truly rustic and New England. The wooden beams and wrought iron chandeliers are a wow factor. The flagstone patio where we held cocktail hour is also gorgeous. Jenelle made sure we even had a few extra seats outside for our older guests. I cannot say enough good things about Jenelle. She always made time to meet with me and my fiance whenever we were in the area during our year-long engagement, and was very responsive to my numerous emails asking questions as we planned together. She went above and beyond what I expected from an event coordinator, especially the day of (she even arranged a time outside her normal schedule for us to drop of decorations prior the event). I sent her pictures and drawings of how I wanted all of our DIY set-up at the reception, and she followed them to a T. When I walked into the venue after our ceremony, before the rest of the guests, I almost cried. It looked exactly the way I imagined it. Jenelle made sure everything looked perfect and went smoothly on our wedding day, and we are so thankful. Our guests have gone on and on about how lovely our wedding was, and how much they loved our reception venue. QQ Farm is a perfect place for a classic, elegant New England wedding. It is gorgeous on its own, but it is also very flexible to allow a DIY bride to infuse her own touches into the space. The new bar area they have just created is simply stunning as well. I know QQ is going to keep getting better and better. I HIGHLY recommend! You will not find a better venue with a better event coordinator, as far as we are concerned! :)

Now they could have just been saying that to be nice, but honestly as the bride - I really was never that stressed. Jenelle did a great job communicating through out the night so that nothing really ever felt rushed. Guests have said that the timing of everything seemed effortless and that nothing was drawn out. Timing is key the day of the wedding and I feel that Jenelle played a very integral part in making sure everything went smoothly. The day of our wedding, there was the chance of thunderstorms :(. Jenelle was flexible in that she let us make the call by 10am the morning of. Luckily, the weather cleared up, we chose the outdoor ceremony in the orchard, and everything worked out :)!! Some venues - do not let the bride and groom make the decision the morning of. I appreciate the flexibility that Jenelle and QQ Farm provided.

Jenelle is well connected to vendors in the area and is able to offer recommendations and is also open to making new relationships with vendors.
