Gather around our 100-year-old hickory tree during the ceremony, walk through the fields to our stone patio for drinks, and share a meal in our historic barn.

Planning & Communication
From vendor recommendations to schedules, we’ll help you map out the big picture aspects of the biggest day of your life. With unlimited access to your planner and scheduled meetings at the farm or over the phone, we’ll make sure no logistical piece is overlooked.
We know that a wedding is not a one-person task, that’s why we’ve developed a shared interactive planner that we can all contribute to. This document will be used to create your final day-of dossier that will be shared with you, your vendors and anyone who plays a part in making the magic happen.
Your Planning Team
The team you plan with in the months leading up to your wedding day, is the same team that will be by your side executing the day start to finish. We’re here to tend to every detail, no matter how large or small, to make your wedding truly perfect. You, your family, and your team of vendors will be well taken care of and kept on track without having to think of a thing.
We offer a full, high end menu of wines, craft beers on draft, our own barrel aged cider and cocktails using farm grown ingredients and fresh squeezed juices. Our dedicated bar manager is available to guide decisions for what will work best for your guests - multiple bars, passed drinks during cocktail hour, wine service with dinner or poured prosecco toasts.
