    A magical, romantic, and warm wedding!

    Mount Ida Farm (The Event Barn) was the PERFECT venue for our wedding! While it is incredibly expensive by our standards, when compared with other barn and vineyard venues in the area, it is properly priced. Savings with Mount Ida are that you don’t have to buy alcohol from them (vineyard wine is more expensive than buying from your caterer or on your own), and the venues (ceremony and reception) are so beautiful that centerpieces and decorations can be more minimal. There are some specific rules that Mount Ida does require, and I recommend you ask questions and read closely. For example, they require you to have a day-of coordinator (I HIGHLY recommend you do this even if you do not choose Mount Ida), events are required to conclude by 11pm (county laws), and rehearsals have to take place before 12pm if it is on Friday-Sunday I believe due to other weddings (we just did ours at a restaurant). Besides being absolutely stunning and a warm, welcoming place for our wedding, Mount Ida has a fabulous team. Kathryn and Kathleen in the corporate office, Bronwyn for pre-event coordination, and Tracy for day-of management were all super friendly, helpful, and organized. Bronwyn was especially a gem when our original day-of-coordinator did not show up for our walk through. She was calm, collected, and un-phased by the snafu and was willing to walk through paperwork and timeline with me and my now husband. She reassured us that everything would be perfect and that there was nothing to worry about—she was right! She also made sure we had time to practice our first dance in the space, which made us way more comfortable for the day of. I am sure I am missing many details that are amazing in my review, so if you think you like Mount Ida from the pictures online—go visit! The venues book up quickly, so I recommend you ask for available dates during the months you’re thinking about in the same note that asks for a tour.

    Nicole, thank you SO much for the kind words! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. With your organization and attention to detail, I knew everything would work out perfectly! I'm so happy you had such a great experience with us at Mount Ida. Congratulations! -Bronwyn

    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.
