A truly special place

In addition to a perfect October wedding at a stunningly beautiful venue, we had the pleasure of working with two of the most fun, gracious, and loving owners you will ever meet. From start to finish, John & Jennifer were flexible, supportive, and a pleasure to work with. We didn鈥檛 just feel welcomed - we felt loved and celebrated. Cates Farm will always hold a special place in our hearts!

A truly beautiful setting with multiple lovely locations on the property for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception allowing for a great flow throughout the evening. Additionally, John and Jennifer were extremely personable and helpful throughout the planning process and even helped during the event to make sure everything went smoothly! It was so special to have our wedding here and we would absolutely recommend them to anyone.
