"Valley View Farm is the place you are looking for! When my wife and I walked in to the barn I immediately had goosebumps and knew this was the place for us.

We can not thank them enough! "

My wife and I got married at Valley View in September of this year. Prior to the wedding date, we had set up appointments to visit several other venues in the area. Those plans went out the window once we met the owners Sue and David and walked around the property. Immediately... Read More my wife and I knew that this was the venue for us, there was no need to continue our search. Sue and David are two of the most laid back, thoughtful and attentive people that we have met. Sue was open to all of our ideas and was incredible when it came to suggesting little touches here and there that would allow for the unique wedding day that we desired! The venue itself is second to none. You truly have to make a visit to really appreciate the hard work that David and his crew did re-constructing the barn, building the beautiful stone sugar house and making each table and chair out of reclaimed wood. The results are absolutely amazing. If you’re looking for a vintage farm type wedding with just enough modern touches than you’ll absolutely want to consider Valley View Farm for your wedding! We can’t thank Sue and David enough for their friendship and guidance and for making sure that our wedding day was absolutely perfect! We’ll be sure to visit whenever we’re in the area to say hello!

Our Wedding at Valley View Farm in September was a dream come true! The venue is absolutely breathtaking! We booked this venue before it was even completed which was risky, but the end results were above and beyond our expectations. There were some communication and... Read More organizational issues from time to time leading up to the wedding BUT keep in mind that we booked this when they were just starting out and before the venue was complete. They were still working out some kinks and getting into the swing of things. About a month before the wedding they provided a shared spreadsheet for us to fill out which I think would've helped these issues from the beginning. I believe they have everything (i.e. contracts, spreadsheets, informational documents) online now so in my opinion they've made great changes to help with the issues that we encountered. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and the staff at VVF was there to ensure everything went just as we planned. We would HIGHLY recommend this venue, especially to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous place that you can DIY your dream wedding. You can let your imagination run wild and create your perfect day! It's been 4 months since our wedding and everyone still talks about how amazing it was and how much they loved the venue. Thank you Valley View Farm for such a memorable day!

Our guests were simply awed by the farm and we couldn't have imagined a better space to gather all of our loved ones together in one place. With the Lovenest for hair/makeup prep, the tree for our ceremony site, the sunflower patch and old truck for photos, the patio and covered pavilion for cocktails, the yellow barn for dinner and dancing, and the fire pits for late night mingling and S'mores -- we really couldn't dream up a more perfectly planned venue for our wedding. We know VVF will be THE place to get married in the Valley so count yourself among the lucky if you book with them.

Where do I begin? We had our wedding at Valley View Farm on August 18, 2017. From start to finish this venue was just amazing. As a busy and stressed out Bride, it was a blessing to know that my venue was on top of their game. Sue, one of the owners responds to emails extremely... Read More quickly, answers all of your questions, and goes above and beyond to make your experience memorable. The farm itself, the barn, and pavilion are STUNNING! My country wedding dream come true. All of our guests commented on just how awesome and beautiful of a venue it was. It was worth every penny. Our wedding day unfortunately was rainy, but the event staff at Valley View Farm did everything they could to make it just as amazing. They were there to hand us umbrellas, dry things off, and Sue's husband was out on the patio and pavilion with a blower trying to dry it off before our ceremony. They have really thought of every little detail to make the venue authentic, rustic, and beautiful. During our planning process Sue met with us on several occasions so we could take notes, walk around the space, and work on decorations. We even took our engagement photos on the farm this past winter. I can't say enough positive things about our experience. We would highly recommend Valley View Farm to anyone looking for that country farm feel at their wedding. It will forever hold a special place in our hearts!

I am the mother of the bride Maura S who wrote a review on 8/2. I agree with all she said and all the rave reviews written so far. I cannot recommend VVF highly enough for any festive occasion anytime of the year. Suzy and David have created a very special place with so many... Read More unexpected options that make it unique. There are many spaces to have the ceremony. We chose under the hickory tree in the field but the Pavilion is also a great choice. It is covered, has a lovely breeze and views and nice touches such as ceiling to floor romantic white drapes at the pillars. The renovated barn is exceptionally appointed. We had 175 guests who comfortably ate and then danced. The bathrooms are lovely and clean. The bar is beautiful and placed well. The upstairs "lovenest" is a fantastic place for getting ready, using as a quiet space or photo booth. What hasn't been noted is that there are two houses on the property available for rent which is a game changer because the entire wedding party stayed on site in the houses and some camped on the lawn, celebrating (quietly) around a firepit until dawn. Suzy, David and their staff are warm, friendly, professional and you feel they are there to help you have the best event ever - and they did. Bravo!

"Dreamy!" "Amazing!" "The best wedding ever!" "Gorgeous venue!" were some of the words I received from guests at my wedding at Valley View Farm. Those words echo my feelings about the space and about the wonderful venue owners and staff. We had an incredible experience working... Read More with Suzy and her husband David. They have created a magical space for celebrations of all kinds. They are so passionate about what they have created and this is evident in their work. We held our wedding ceremony under the hickory tree, which was extraordinary. David mowed a path through the beautiful fields so that guests could walk comfortably but feel emersed in the beautiful pasture. -We then had cocktail hour under the outdoor pavilion and on the patio. There are so many beautiful details that make the space so elegant and enjoyable. Suzy and David have many farm tables, wine barrels, and other pieces that can be moved around in any desired arrangement for your liking. -We then had the reception (dinner and dancing) inside the yellow barn, a gorgeous space that made all (including all city folk) feel comfortable and enamored by the beautiful beams of this restored barn. They allowed us to add decorations of all kinds to personalize the space. -They worked really well with us, our families, our wedding coordinator, photographer, etc. theoughout the process. -Throughout the whole planning process, Suzy and David were friendly, easily reachable, and open to our ideas. They are approachable, and even though this space is their passion, they seemed thrilled whenever we suggested something that was a bit different or new. For example, they have a beautiful attic "love nest" in the barn that we used for a place for the bridal party to get ready. We also suggested using it as a photo booth space during the reception. Suzy and David fully supported this idea and helped us set up for it. Our guests were completely wowed by this beautiful room and we were so glad to share it with them. Suzy and David pay close attention to detail and are incredibly accommodating! For example, we mentioned that we would like a chuppah, which is a Jewish tradition involving 4 people holding 4 birch poles during the ceremony. Suzy and David offered these poles to us through two options. They offered us birch poles that would be physically held up by 4 people and poles that had iron rods at the bottom so that they could be free standing. They also mentioned cutting the poles to any length we desired. This is one of the many examples showing how thoughtful and considerate they are. -Suzy and David wanted to help us fulfill our vision of our wedding. The whole experience surpassed anything we had dreamed of. We cannot recommend this venue more highly. It was a truly spectacular experience.

Sue and David, from building the most wonderful venue, to supporting our planning, to cutting huppah poles (and then re-cutting huppah poles), to last minute candle supplies, to lighting and tending bonfires - you put up with anything we threw your way, improved upon our ideas, and most of all, ensured the best wedding I could imagine. For anyone reading this - if you want a beautiful farm aesthetic without sacrificing on your comfort (or the comfort of your guests) you'd be crazy not to go for Valley View!

We could not be happier with our wedding day experience at Valley View Farm. We got married outside under the big oak tree on an absolutely perfect day. We used the breezy covered pavilion for our cocktail hour and moved into the yellow barn for dinner. We chose VVF in large... Read More part because of the flexibility it offered with the multiple venues on the farm. Every venue on the farm is beautiful, and we had peace of mind knowing that even if we couldn't hold the ceremony under the tree as we wanted (due to weather), we could divert to the covered pavilion or even into the barn (in a total weather disaster) without compromising the look/feel we wanted for our wedding. We received compliments all day about how great the venue looked, but we spent less than $100 on decorations. In my opinion, VVF is constantly "wedding-ready" like a new house or apartment would be "move-in-ready" -- not much dressing up required at all. Our wedding had 120 guests (98 adults and 22 kids), and all fit in the barn comfortably, even with dance floor space. There is also ample space outdoors with the pavilion, patio, and fields -- the kids at our wedding had plenty of space to be kids. Working with Sue and David was a great experience -- when we got married in early July 2017, VVF was just getting started as a wedding venue and had only hosted a handful of weddings. Despite that, our whole experience was smooth from the beginning -- I'm sure it will only be further ironed out as they put on more weddings and cement their process -- a process which for us was highly personal from touring the venue to loading out on wedding day. We had total flexibility to choose our vendors, and all of VVF's vendor policies were reasonable. Many wedding venues we considered were so set in their policies that it felt like we would have been buying a "cookie-cutter" package. We felt that the Valley View Farm experience was totally the opposite, and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to put together a wedding that was customized/tailored toward our personalities and preferences. Without reservation, I would recommend Valley View Farm to any couple in search of a wedding ceremony and/or reception venue. We could not have asked or hoped for a more perfect wedding day, and Valley View Farm was the main attraction (besides us, of course).
