My husband and I had a wonderful wedding and reception at The Farmhouse earlier this year. The organizers planned a seamless event, so we were able to have our ceremony outside and then immediately transition inside for the reception. Our 5-pc band and 100 guests fit perfectly...

I loved having a one-stop venue so that we could efficiently plan our wedding and also minimize down time for guests during the event.

Planning a wedding in my hometown of Delaware from California (and marrying a British Australian who was living in Sydney through the planning phase) could have been the most stressful experience ever. It was very important to find a venue we loved but also would make things... Read More really easy especially since we had to pick the venue SIGHT UNSEEN! Katie and The Farmhouse were just FANTASTIC! She was able to fulfill every request we had and helped come up with ideas and options for what we could do to make our wedding personalized and reflect us. The Farmhouse has all-inclusive packages which just makes wedding planning simple and easy. Belak Flowers and Desserts by Dana were spectacular and made our flowers, cake and dessert bar shine. Katie was super helpful and patient throughout the planning and kept up with my very OCD detailed asks. She was always available, very responsive and incredibly detailed oriented - which gives you such confidence in the venue and the people there - especially since I asked a ton of questions (especially on how certain décor pieces would work and all our small touches). On the Wedding Day, the venue was breathtaking. If you ever need to pick a venue blindly…you can feel comfortable that The Farmhouse is the perfect place. Beautiful outdoor space for our ceremony, outdoor deck space, and lots of rooms throughout the house itself. And again, Katie was amazing, making sure everything we executed to perfection. She was also fantastic checking in on us and making sure we had food and drinks. You'll love getting married here and appreciate the lack of stress that you feel and the confidence that you will have in the people and venue. We cannot thank The Farmhouse, Katie and everyone enough!

I didn't have to worry about a thing, as I knew Laura was thinking of EVERYTHING. I also greatly appreciated Laura being the "enforcer" the day of the wedding.

Katie was our wedding coordinator and was an amazing resource throughout the entire process and day... Read More of the event. My father in law still talks about how efficient and helpful she was whenever someone brings up our wedding day. Due to the availability of dates, we ended up having our wedding just 3 months after our engagement, and with The Farmhouse's help it looked like we had been planning for well over a year! I've never been the type to dream about my wedding day and the packages that The Farmhouse offers allowed us not to get stressed over the details but still personalize our special day for our tastes. The landscaping of the grounds is breath-taking and all the greenery was the perfect background for our ceremony. The bridal "getting ready" suite is a bit on the smaller size, but we didn't do onsite hair/makeup so that wasn't a big deal for us. I can't imagine another venue making the process any easier without sacrificing quality (the coffee station + dessert trays were great touches). Even our DJ loved the forethought of the in-house sound system that The Farmhouse had in place. I will say that the reception space is better for smaller groups (our wedding was ~115). Any more and we would have had to seat additional people in a separate room which would have been uncomfortable/could potentially cause friction in my opinion. The food was also very good. I'm used to wedding food not being of the best quality, just because of the mass production of the meals, but our meals were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. The Farmhouse was the perfect fit for me and my husband, and I can't imagine anyone regretting their decision to go with them.
