Best Day Ever
Where do I start? From the day that we booked in March 2021, Laura was so communicative and supportive. She answered every question I had, and checked in regularly over the year and a half we were planning. She made us feel so special, and like our day really, really mattered to them. When it came time for our wedding, Laura and Charlie welcomed us as their guests for the entire weekend. They were so kind and accommodating, going above and beyond to make sure that everything went perfectly. We were so confident in their support that we barely thought about logistics on the day of, despite not having a wedding planner.
The property is absolutely stunning. It's the perfect balance of rustic structures and natural beauty, the barn and farmhouse situated perfectly among the lush greenery, gorgeous flowers, tall trees, and rushing river. The beauty of the setting definitely took some pressure off of us when it came to decor, and our guests couldn't stop talking about how dreamy it was.
The layout of the venue offers a ton of options for your day, depending on what kind of flow you want. We had our ceremony in the orchard, our cocktail hour in the garden, dinner on the lawn, and dancing in the barn. I've never been to a venue that offers so many options for how each part of your day can flow into another. Laura really wanted to help us customize our experience, and was always on hand to offer ideas and advice.
All in all, we had the most perfect wedding day ever, and we wouldn't have been able to do it without Laura and Charlie at JRF. Thank you SO SO much for everything, we will remember our experience at JRF for a lifetime.
Perfect for our vision
Our appointment at the other vendor took longer then planned and Laura kindly checked in with us and was very flexible for when we were showing up. Her and her husband are so sweet and we decided to book our wedding with Josiah's River Farm for 10/17/2020! We are looking forward to beginning our future together there and we are so thankful for their kindness and flexibility.
Beautiful venue, amazing vendors
