    Dream Wedding Venue

    We have absolutely no regrets getting married at Arabella Estate. Everything was magical! The landscape is incredible, we got so many positive comments from our guests about the venue. In addition to that, it was so nice having the farm house for the weekend. We were able to relax and enjoy the time leading up to our special day with our close friends and family. The staff at Arabella are all so helpful! Phil, the owner is such a personable guy and works hard to keep the place running. I still cannot believe all they did to ensure our wedding day ran smoothly. Susan was there are all weekend to help with whatever we needed. Connie was so quick to answer any questions that we had leading up to our wedding. We are so glad she was our day of coordinator too, she really helped to keep the day flowing smoothly. I would highly recommend Arabella Estate to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

    Dream Wedding Venue

    Arabella Estate is such a stunning venue! The grounds, the barn, and the house were all just beautiful. Phil the owner has really created an amazing place. We stayed with my whole family from Thursday to Sunday, had lots of time to decorate, enjoy the pool, and had the best weekend ever. 

    The staff is also amazing. Susan was so great, laid back and fun to chat with, and so helpful with the set up and take-down. She was there all day helping the wedding run smoothly, and was also readily available to help us with house stuff throughout the weekend. Cheryl ended up being our coordinator and she was wonderful to work with. Mikaela was also very professional and a great help with our questions in the months leading up. Connie was super sweet and even reached out on our wedding day to wish us well and answer a question I had about our shuttles. I also loved that the venue had farm tables, dinnerware, and lots of decor for us to use. It came together perfectly. I still can’t get over what a beautiful venue this was - it was truly the wedding of our dreams. Wish we could do it all again!

    Jaw dropping venue, excellent experience, friendly & organized staff

    The Arabella estate venue experience was superb. It was such a perfect spot for our wedding…we couldn’t of asked for a better place to say “I do.”
    From the cow field to the left of the venue to the beautiful historic house we stayed in on the property the experience was full of
    character.
    The pool on site for the kids to swim the night before and the AC in barn made a summer wedding pleasurable and comfortable. There is an incredible amount of Decor on site and photo ops around the property it was overwhelming how much was there for our use and included in the venue!
    We had an amazing and seamless weekend..& can’t say enough about the helpful and accommodating staff.. Sue, Connie, Phil, Mikaela and Cheryl. They were beyond on top of the details from the very beginning. Sue was an immense help setting up everything and breaking down the venue post wedding day & keeping all our things organized. She made it so easy for us to clean up and leave venue the next day; Connie Mikaela and Cheryl were in the details all along, very responsive and friendly. And Phil Created a dream of a spot for our vision to have our friends and family gather together for our incredibly memorable day. This venue is jaw dropping beautiful. Highly recommend!!!!!
