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.

Beautiful venue, amazing vendors
This venue is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to, and I'm not just biased ;) The barn is rustic, wonderful, and full of lights, the yard is spacious and full of beautiful trees and flowers (with LOTS of room for activities), and the goat pen was a huge hit amongst our friends. And the Tangerini's were a dream to work with. They were so helpful with recommending and directing vendors, with set up, where people should park, and with the clean up. Laura was also great when it came to planning out how the wedding should proceed and had awesome suggestions. What an amazing duo, they are two of the nicest people I have ever met and I am so thankful that they are the people that are behind this venue, the whole experience was beautiful beyond words.

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.
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.Sent on 07/18/2019
