Cedar Grove Acres is an absolute magical place! I just got married there on Saturday September 29 and I will confess, I have the wedding blues. At CGA we had a noon ceremony and served brunch after! It was perfect! The meadow is gorgeous where we had the ceremony & the old cow barn that is now a space for the reception with dance floor is great! It comfortably held my 100 guests & it is just magical! The fresh air, all the props included in the weekend package, & Richard even called the cows to come take a picture with my bridal party! Paula & Richard are so helpful! The bridal cottage where my bridesmaids and I got ready is very accommodating with a full kitchen, bathroom, & a space with chairs & mirrors for your hair & makeup team to get everyone ready! I am in love with CGA & can’t wait to go back again!Sent on 10/17/2018

Paula and her husband are amazing. They genuinely care about what they do for a living and they’re GREAT at it. Not only is the property breathtaking, but Paula and her husband treat you like family throughout the entire process. She gave me ideas for my wedding day and she also gave me advice on things not to do based on passed experience. She made my dream outdoor meadow ceremony come true, even when it was threatened by rain! She made sure she did everything possible to make it happen. It was the best day of our lives and we’re eternally grateful for cedar grove acres!Sent on 06/26/2018

Cedar Grove Acres was a wonderful venue for our daughter's wedding. The meadow was the perfect backdrop for her outdoor ceremony. She loved hearing the cows mooing as she waited to walk down the aisle. The reception area looked so beautiful all lit up at night, but I think her favorite amenity was the fire pit. It was a very popular spot on the chilly November night as guests enjoyed making s'mores. Paula and Richard were very helpful and accommodating in keeping the guests warm when the weather turned colder than expected.

Cedar Grove Acres is a beautiful place to get married! There is so much thought and detail in every corner of this place. Paula is such a pleasure to work with and so helpful. Anytime I am asked for a rustic venue recommendation I send them to Cedar Grove Acres.
Thanks for all you do. I love what nature brings to a ceremony.
Cedar Grove Acres is an absolute gorgeous venue that is a dream to photograph! There are so many unique possibilities there... with the old barns and buildings, market lights hanging outside, the stage built, a field of cows, a huge fire pit... can you tell I love it there? Paula the owner is wonderful to work with and very accommodating. I love when my brides tell me they're getting married at Cedar Grove!
