"I don't think I was supposed to have THAT much fun" was all I kept saying days after our wedding. Chanteclaire was more than just a venue for me and my husband. They completely were able to guide us in every direction of the planning process. Which most brides know can be the most stressful time of your entire life. Chanteclaire's team of some of the most amazing people I have ever meant went above and beyond every expectation we had. Leigh was so calming for me and really gave me the sense that I didn't need to worry about anything. Carla gave us some of the most amazing, fresh, and tasty food we could have asked for. Wally. Oh where do I start with Wally. He was our DJ who works at the farm. He kept the party going all night long. Which is what I was most nervous about. I just wanted everyone and I mean EVERYONE dancing and having a blast and that is exactly what happened.Sent on 09/28/2015
Most couples that we spoke to prior to the wedding told us to elope. That weddings were too stressful and expensive. That all of the work that you put into it doesn't pay off. Well now after having our wedding I would have to disagree completely with them. I would do it all over again and not change a thing. I know that Chanteclaire Farm is responsible for that

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!
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.
