If you're thinking about using Fernwood as a venue, DO IT! You won't be disappointed. My husband and I had planned on getting married there originally, but then COVID happened. They were MORE than patient and accommodating for us and we were able to change to a micro wedding which was more amazing than I ever could have imagined. It took so much of the planning off of our hands. It came with a photographer, cake, officiant, music, and flowers all in one sweet bundle. They really did their research to hire the BEST for those too. We were lucky enough to have the most amazing photographer around and gorgeous flowers that I couldn't have picked out myself. We got married on the most gorgeous fall day and were even able to live stream it for our friends and family.Sent on 01/18/2021

High value, low stress, efficient
We absolutely loved our pop-wedding in September. The garden was beautiful. Our ceremony was in the boxwood garden which I recommend to anyone wanting a smaller ceremony.Sent on 01/15/2021
The vendors included in the package were fantastic and Heidi with Fernwood was so nice.

Fernwood is Fantastic!
I absolutely loved having my wedding at Fernwood. Leading up to the wedding it was incredibly easy and pleasant to work with Heidi (the wedding coordinator at Fernwood), and it was such a relief for have such a great venue for my wedding. Fernwood also was incredibly flexible with seating arrangements and creating our 'back-up weather' plan. The food portions at Fernwood are also large, the food is tasty, and the staff was great. I would recommend anyone wanting to get married in 'refined nature' to get married at Fernwood. Also since you have to order food and alcohol with Fernwood then you have one easy bill to pay for the venue and food - we got our cake elsewhere though.Sent on 12/02/2019
