Get staff and wonderful venue! Still receiving compliments on how perfect and unique our wedding was! Leigh and her staff provided a stress free and fantastic day for us. We loved every second and the bonfire was the cherry on top!Sent on 10/07/2017

Chanteclaire Farm is a dream wedding venue. Our day was absolutely perfect. I'd have my wedding there again in a heartbeat.Sent on 09/26/2017
I'd probably describe myself as a hands-off bride. I looked at a few similar venues, but I would have to plan everything. I didn't want to plan decorations or choose a caterer. And I didn't want to be chasing birds out of the barn rafters!
Chanteclaire...WOW! From decorating, catering, timing, etc, the staff at Chanteclaire does it all. The barn is so beautifully decorated that I barely did anything (which is exactly what I wanted). But if you want to decorate, they have decorations from previous weddings you're welcome to use.
The food is delicious and the variety is amazing. Cake, cookies, pie, donuts. I was a gluten free bride and they were very accommodating. Gluten free cake, yum! After years of hosting awesome weddings, they have timing down to a science. They kept our day moving smoothly. The staff is just amazing.
This was a destination wedding for us. I've been to Deep Creek dozens of times, but we didn't know any vendors in the area. They were able to provide me with a list of people they work with and trust, so I didn't even have to think about finding other vendors.
My guests were blown away. I had so many compliments and people had a BLAST. I've never seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding, and I'm still getting compliments a few months later.
I love Chanteclaire. I would recommend them to anyone.
Thanks for an amazing experience, Chanteclaire team!

I was married at Chanteclaire Farm July 30th, 2016 and it was by far the best day of my life! My girls and I stayed in the farmhouse and the guys stayed in the cabin (both available for rent on property). To be able to rent both the farmhouse and the cabin was such a stress reliever and couldn't have been more accommodating for my vendors to come in for hair/makeup. The cabin was great for the guys and had such a masculine feel.Sent on 08/12/2016
We also held our rehearsal dinner at the farm Friday before the wedding and if I could offer one word of advice it would be to have your rehearsal there! The food is AMAZING! We had BBQ Night and everyone raved about the pies and Mac and Cheese. Leigh, the owner of Chanteclaire went through every motion of the ceremony with us before dinner. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING was covered right down to how you properly hold your escorts arm. I felt confident my ceremony would be organized and smooth. Zero worries... Zero work on my end... All I had to do was show up in my white dress!
Our wedding day was very rainy, the kind of rain that pounds on the roof ....so you can't ignore it..... I truly believe it was God and Chanteclaire magic that let our outside ceremony go off without a hitch. Leigh and her team kept an eye on the radar and we were able to dry off the chairs and get everyone seated and start the ceremony. The rain started again right as we said I DO. Amazing..... Nothing short of it. If it wasn't for Leigh and her team the day could have been ruined by the rain but they kept my spirits high (even coming to visit me in the farmhouse).
Everyone could not stop talking about the food..... The cake ..... The EXPERIENCE! Chanteclaire is a very special place and I hold it very close to my heart. I couldn't imagine being married anywhere else. Leigh, you are one of a kind and your staff is beyond fabulous.
Chanteclaire Farm's reply:Oh, Chelsea!!!! Thank you for the kind words. It makes us so happy to hear them. Please stay in touch, and I hope to see you in October! Big hugs. Leigh
One of our very favorite venues! We love how seamlessly their wedding days flow, the delicious food, and friendly staff! And you couldn't ask for a more picturesque venue!
Hands down the best. Great food, awesome reception hall.
