Gorgeous Venue | Amazing Staff

We are incredibly grateful to have found and booked Kuiper's for our wedding. The venue was gorgeous and the staff was incredibly flexible and friendly.

Prior to booking, our only concern was the price tag and inability to cater our own food. We're very happy we moved passed these concerns as Kuiper's is very accommodating and will work with you to craft an event order that suits your needs. The food and drink was fantastic (we highly recommend trying their ciders) and there were countless ways Kuiper's provided value for us that we did not account for on the front end.

Wedding planning could have been a major headache at a different venue, but a lot of the smaller details were completely taken care of by Kuiper's, many of which were last minute requests by us. For example, days before our wedding we requested table numbers, an easel, and several layout and logistical changes. They even offered to print out our drink menu and other signs on the morning of our wedding.

We definitely recommend Kuiper's Family Farm to anyone looking for a beautiful venue with a friendly and resourceful staff.

Perfect wedding on 5/28/2023

I can't rave enough about this place. Everything was perfect. Though the perfect weather was not in their control, the beauty of the grounds, all it had to offer (outdoor gorgeous ceremony location/views, train rides, lawn games, cocktail reception, smores, reception center, dance floor, yummy food, great attentive staff (loved Megan, Annie, and all the rest)....I can't emphasize enough that this is THE PLACE to get married if you are looking for a venue like this. Plenty of places for photo ops!! Wish I could do this every weekend!
