Mount Ida Farm is such a gorgeous venue! I love having the opportunity to photograph there and utilize the many unique locations that highlight the best this area has to offer. The ceremony spot is spectacular with the gazebo and overlook of the pond while the reception space ties in the rustic farm feel. This venue is perfect for the families as well since they can chose to rent out houses and stay on location. I especially enjoy working with Milicent and her staff as they are always so helpful and supportive during wedding days.
Mount Ida is an absolutely stunning place, we have had some photo shoots here for a spread in a wedding magazine with our dresses and it is just soooo beautiful!
Great venue! Beautiful setting, lovely people...beautiful for outdoor ceremony.
