Dream come true

Let me help you make the EASIEST decision for your wedding- book Etre Farms. I have been sitting for a few days waiting for the perfect words to come to me to write for Etre and this past weekend truly was my dream come true when I think about my wedding. Guests continue to tell me how epic this weekend was which was my number one goal. From the moment I stepped onto the grounds until I left- it was pure perfection. The venue is to die for, the staff is efficient and effective, Chef Shane produced the best food I have ever had at a wedding, taking into consideration our pallets and elevating it to new levels. He was so flexible and even was able to create a vegan dish for the one vegan friend that came which was above and beyond. Finally, to the management team of Nicole, Morgan, Mark and Taylor- they are simply just the best- they take care of every detail from decor, flowers, operations, beverages, and they do it flawlessly. They truly get to know their couples, become friends with them in a sense and understand how to appropriately design a wedding with their tastes in mind. The day of - they make you feel like royalty like a bride should. I am sure I am missing so much more that they do- but bottom line is they make your dream wedding a reality. Thank you Etre for truly giving me the best day of my life. I am so grateful for this venue and team!

Incredible Day Thanks to Etre Farms

We recently had the privilege of getting married here and everything about Etre Farms was absolutely immaculate! Etre Farms truly sets the stage for an unforgettable celebration. From the breathtaking surroundings, to the picturesque barn-reimagined, this place is a photographers dream. The attention to detail in every aspect of the wedding and time leading up to the wedding was impressive. Mark & Nicole, and the entire Etre Farms staff went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was taken care of and everything went according to plan. To us, this was one of the largest differentiators when picking a venue. They deserve praise for their flexibility and willingness to accommodate each couples unique preferences and ideas. The personalized touches added an extra layer of warmth and made the celebration truly reflect our story. The catering team at Etre Farms truly outdid themselves. The dinner was a culinary dream, with an immense amount of choices, custom designed based on you and your guests favorite foods and preferences. One thing that stood out to us, was the incredible coordination amongst the Etre Farms team. They seamlessly managed the schedule, ensuring everything ran smoothly and on time. From the beginning of the ceremony, to the grand entrance of the newly-weds, all the way until the last dance, they made sure every moment felt effortless and well coordinated. They have everything you need in-house, and I would suggest you take advantage of it. The DJ did such an amazing job - it was by far the best DJ performance at a wedding that we have ever seen. By utilizing all of the in-house services we could be as involved, or little-involved as we would like. That was such an advantage leading up to the wedding. In conclusion, I cannot say enough about Etre Farms. It is an exceptional wedding venue that excels in every aspect. If you're looking for a place that combines natural beauty, impeccable service, and attention to detail, then Etre Farms is the perfect choice. I wholeheartedly recommend it to any couple seeking to create lasting memories of their special day.

Every member of staff worked so hard to make dreams come true! Their chef is truly amazing at curating the most beautiful and delicious food I’ve ever had a wedding! Every details was taken care of by Etre to create a stress-free and unforgettable day. The memories they’re making for their couples will last a lifetime.
