About

Up to 200 guests

Updike Farmstead, a beautifully restored late 18th/early 19th century farmhouse & barn set on six acres in Princeton, NJ, is now available for weddings, May through October. The barn is ideal for parties of 150 or fewer, but with additional tenting, we can accommodate up to 200 guests.

The expansive back porch overlooks the bucolic landscape of preserved farmland and an open yard. There are multiple locations on the property for a ceremony as well. We have put together an excellent team of three exclusive caterers and a equipment rental company to help you plan your special day.

    Perfect Barn Wedding Venue

    Updike Farmstead provided a spectacular setting for our daughter's rustic wedding just minutes from Princeton. The event coordinator was accommodating and provided recommendations for vendors to create who helped us create our dream wedding. All our guests raved about the barn and the outdoor space. Cocktails outside amid the outbuildings and windmill, dinner in the beautifully transformed barn and dancing under a tent out the back doors - perfect!!

    Great experience, beautiful place

    It was a true pleasure working with Leanne to plan our wedding at Updike Farmstead. She is professional, responsive, reasonable, and forthcoming. While we ended up having to change wedding plans due to the current health climate, we would recommend Updike Farmstead to anyone looking for a beautiful space to host their wedding or celebration.

    Incredible service, beautiful venue

    We are so grateful to Leanne at Updike for all of her support and professionalism during this crazy past 2 years of wedding planning! When our original venue fell through, Leanne was quick to help us envision our dream wedding at Updike, even from across the country. She had creative ideas for how to use the space for all our needs. She was always quick to respond, positive, and detail-oriented. When we had to reschedule our wedding due to the pandemic, she was incredibly understanding and proactive. And when, finally, we had to cancel our event altogether, she was incredibly supportive and gave us a full refund, which was unexpected and something we are incredibly grateful for. Leanne was the most empathetic vendor we worked with throughout our wedding planning process and while we're sad we didn't get to actually have the wedding of our dreams at Updike, we would absolutely recommend them to others.
