McGuire's Millrace Farm is a photographer's dream. The stunning vistas, beautiful details, gorgeous event barn, well appointed (and lovely) lodge and the original buildings around the property join together with an incredible staff to create my absolute favorite venue. The owners are hands-on and supremely knowledgeable. The layout of the venue itself makes logistics a breeze; as a professional wedding photographer this is paramount- it makes moving from one photoset to the next a smooth process that requires little time. I have photographed many weddings there, and I'm always surprised at how I don't run out of unique views or gorgeous backgrounds, regardless of the weather, season, or time of day. The staff shines even brighter than the rest of the venue- they are the perfect hosts for any wedding, small or large. Working with Natalie is a total joy! Believe me, you can't go wrong with McGuire's.
This is an awesome venue and the people that work here are wonderful. Natalie is so pleasant to work with as a vendor and the hospitality is beyond what I have experienced at many venues. Her and her team rock!
McGuire's Millrace Farm is one of the premiere wedding venues in the Tri-sate area. As a professional photographer familiar with many wedding venues this is one of the best. There are countless photographic opportunities all over the farm. I was most impressed on how they give treat their clients the royal treatment. Pay them a visit and you will fall in love with this place.
