    Would highly recommend the Gatherings!

    The Gatherings was an incredible place to have a wedding! We were able to use Farmpond Inn to get ready and take additional photos there prior to the wedding. The staff were all great to work with, especially Courtney! I would highly recommend the Gatherings!

    Farmhouse Catering did a wonderful job from start to finish. We requested an unusual menu which they met with enthusiasm and carried out quite well. They served dinner for 200 with ease. We received many compliments on the meal and some of our guests are planning on using Farmhouse Catering. The servers were polite, professional, and unobtrusive. We couldn't be more pleased.

    Evie and her team have made our dream wedding a reality! She is high quality and unique without blowing your budget! Without this place I don't think we would have been able to have a wedding anywhere near what we wanted. It has been an absolute blessing.
