Amazing! They made it a day to remember.
Stephanie and Marie were WONDERFUL and really helped us have the best wedding ever. Stephanie went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day and has everything in the right place. I can’t say enough good things about this place! We stayed the night before and the night of and had so much fun.Sent on 10/12/2020

Our wedding was a dream come true. The venue was everything we could have asked for. The place is magnificent and Absolutely stunning. The staff was more then appreciated and helpful for the entire wedding. I would recommend this place to everyone. If I had more time and more money I still would have chosen this horse farm.Sent on 11/22/2019

This was the perfect location to have our rehearsal dinner and wedding. We checked in Friday afternoon, moved the girls upstairs, had a wonderful rehearsal and dinner, the wedding Saturday, and then collected our things Sunday – it’s rare to find a place so accommodating that allows you the whole weekend to really revel in your celebration. More than that, Marie and Debra went above and beyond to not only make Arcadia Farm feel like home, but also to decorate the entire property and create a magical atmosphere for us. Marie even brought out a couple of horses to “join us” for a rehearsal dinner and reception photo op. Even leading up to the big weekend, every time I emailed Debra with a question, she sent an almost-immediate response. These ladies are amazing, the property is stunning, the horses are majestic, and – largely because of them and their efforts – we had absolutely the most perfect wedding we could ever imagine. Thank you for giving us a wedding we will never forget!! (On a side note, do yourself a favor and walk around the property first thing in the morning – gorgeous!!) We are looking forward to revisiting Debra and Marie for an anniversary trip!Sent on 09/01/2019
