Magical Wedding Venue

I cannot begin to describe how perfect this venue was and how magical our wedding was on 8/27/2022. I was beyond impressed with the farmhouse, barn, yard, and ceremony site. Sarah and Rich have done a wonderful job maintaining and renovating their property. The gardens and grounds are beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for our photographer to get those "rustic" farmhouse vibes toward the end of summer. The venue itself was very reasonably priced and you get the venue for the entire weekend, there is also the option for accommodations in the farmhouse. The getting-ready suite in the farmhouse was bright and light. Plenty of outlets and amenities for the party. Sarah also served as our day of coordinator and she helped with vendor coordination, logistics and design planning. It was so nice to have her there, and it look a lot of stress off us during the days leading up to the wedding and the day of the wedding. She coordinating everything and it was so seamless. Some highlights we loved were the farmhouse tables and chairs, the birch archway at the ceremony site, and the chickens. Our guests cannot stop talking about how much fun they had and how beautiful the venue was. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Thanks Sarah and Rich!

Amazing experience!

We worked with Sarah for our October 2021 wedding and still (almost a year later) can't stop talking about how perfect our experience was. We rented out the barn and farmhouse for the whole weekend so that our entire wedding party could stay with us. Sarah was unbelievably helpful and accommodating from the very beginning of our planning process through to the last moment of clean up. She even helped us cut the cake when we realized how difficult it was! At the end of the night she offered to help guests back to their cars - absolutely above and beyond! She also offers to make hand drawn signs. She made our timeline and other assorted signs and they all came out beautifully. The grounds were immaculate - you can tell her and her family take great pride in both their home and the beautiful venue. The grounds were spacious enough for our multiple food trucks while still allowing plenty of room for our guests to enjoy the scenery. The barn (which is stunning!) was spacious enough to accommodate both a sizable dance floor as well as tables for about 100 guests. Our guests are still raving about how beautiful and unique the barn and ceremony site are! We are forever grateful to Garden Gate for hosting the wedding of our dreams!
