Perfect for our vision
My fiance and I met with Laura this past weekend and toured the property. I instantly fell in love with this venue and couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else but we had another tour booked up the road for the next day. Laura knew that my fiance's mom would be joining us the next day and asked if we wanted to bring her by so she could see the venue as well. This was perfect since his mom will be a huge part in the planning process of our wedding!Sent on 08/06/2019
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.

A Stunning Rustic Wedding Venue!
My husband and I were fortunate enough to have our wedding at Josias River Farm this past June 2019. It could not have been better! First off, the owners, Laura and Charlie, were incredible to work with. They truly cared about our vision for the day and were so easy-going along the way. They were always very responsive and did not mind us stopping in on various occasions to hash out certain details. One of the best parts of JRF is that we were were really able to make it our own to reflect us as a couple--something very important to us during our search.Sent on 07/18/2019
The property itself is beautiful (one of the many reasons we chose to be married here)! And the farm house was ideal for getting ready with my mother and bridesmaids prior to the ceremony. We cannot say enough about JRF and would highly recommend to anyone considering hosting an event here.
Josias River Farm's reply:Thanks Toni and Mike! We over hosting your wedding and getting to meet your families and so many of your friends. It was fun to watch you create such a special day.

Elegance and approachability - the best of both worlds
Josias River Farm is an absolute gem of a wedding location. It offers the perfect combination of elegance and approachability. We wanted a place where our guests could feel both right-at-home and "something special" - and Josias River Farm was just that. The property itself is immaculate, and the owners take great care to ensure every detail is accounted for and that you, as a couple, feel like the Farm is especially yours for the weekend. The flexibility the venue provides was also really important to us. We loved being able to choose our own vendors for each part of the wedding. We couldn't be happier with the choice of Josias River Farm for our special day!Sent on 11/28/2018
Josias River Farm's reply:Julia, thanks so much for your kind words! I loved that you felt right-at-home, that's the way we want your to feel. The couples who choose JRF love the flexibility that the venue has to offer. At the farm you can truly make your wedding a reflection of you. Make sure you stop by sometime to say hello and take a trip down memory lane.
