    Amazing and magical

    My husband and I were married at Fernwood and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The staff were accommodating, and the wedding coordinator made planning at a distance easy and stress-free. So happy we chose Fernwood for our big day!

    Amazing Venue

    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.

    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.

    The vendors included in the package were fantastic and Heidi with Fernwood was so nice.
