I can’t say enough how much I loved having this venue and this family for my wedding on 11/16/19. Liz is the main point of contact and she is so sweet and caring. It’s family run and warm hearted. To give just some examples, the venue made a bonfire for our wedding and then put a fire in the home for the immediate family that spent the wedding night there. They also offered to coordinate the wedding as I was having trouble finding a day of coordinator initially.Sent on 12/11/2019
The property is gorgeous and every time I came to see it it got better and better! They are always working hard to update the farm throughout the seasons. The pictures from our wedding are dreamy. The farm House is a wonderful spot for the girls getting ready process. Highly recommend this spot!!!

Highly Recommend - would not have done it any other way!
Ballenger Farm was incredible and such a blessing. My husband and I hosted our post-elopement celebration with friends here (married at the DC War Memorial the day before). It was such a blessing for us because we had actually rented out another air bnb that ended up canceling our reservation less than a month before our event. Liz was very quick to respond and was available to meet us the very next day to have us take a look at the venue. Liz's place was even better than our originally air bnb venue. We were able to have an outdoor/indoor event for our 45 guests. Liz was extremely accessible and made sure that we had everything we needed for our event. She even had great recommendations for other vendors for us regarding lawn games, tables, etc. The space was just incredible - so much land! We had a pinata (filled with mini shots of alcohol) that we hung on one of her many big trees, we had corn hole and ladder ball for guests as well. This is a working farm and we had the goats and chickens hanging out and our guests loved it. The home was decorated so beautifully - it's pretty much THE place you want to have an event, especially your wedding. You likely wouldn't have to make any changes to how anything was arranged in that house at all (Liz is flexible and allows you to if need be). We made use of the fire pit and had smores. It was such a hit - the seating around the fire pit is tree stumps - it's so cute! We did not make use of this since we already got married, but, there are at least three areas that would be the perfect ceremony spots throughout the farm (as seen in the photos of this listing). Liz and her family were kind enough to share one of their fishing rods with my dad so that he could fish in their pond. Talk about hospitality! Lastly, I want to mention that they gave us farm fresh eggs (the freshest you'll ever get) the next morning. I would give Ballenger Farms 7 stars if I could - I would recommend this venue for anyone who is looking to have an intimate 50 and under wedding here, baby showers, birthday parties, or anything. I also want to mention that the space was so large that it allowed for guests to hang out and explore through the land too which was a huge hit for us!Sent on 09/10/2019

A dream to work with!
We can't say enough nice things about LIz, and Ballenger. The house, the farm, the AirBnb - all flawless. As soon as you walk in the door, it's as if you've jetted over to a Parisian cottage for the afternoon. So much warmth, fantastic décor and just overall feeling of cozy. You must visit, for their amazing AirBnb and now wedding venue!Sent on 12/08/2018
