So happy with our amazing wedding day!
Northfork was the first venue we looked at one week after we were engaged and we fell in love instantly. We knew this was the place we were getting married!Sent on 11/07/2018
We booked the last wedding of their season on November 3rd and as the months started passing I got nervous about the weather. Each time I emailed Pete and Laurie, they would ease my mind. They were extremely responsive via email. We also went back to walk around the grounds with various venders before the wedding and Pete would always come out and make sure any questions were answered. I also rented their daughter Carly’s new salon space and she was just as friendly and responsive too. My favorite part about this venue is that it is owned by a family and it really feels like weddings are their passion, not just a business they run. I felt they went above and beyond to make sure my day went smoothly.
Peggy, their wedding planner, was also incredible. She met with me numerous times and also was happy to answer any questions along the way. She is a STEAL! Book her if you choose this venue! John, the bartender was also wonderful. I really can’t say enough great things about this place!

The most perfect day ever.
Northfork provided an absolutely amazing experience, and made our dream reception happen. Peggy understands everything you might envision, and makes it come to life, 10 times better than you could ever imagine! Our guests raved about the venue and everything it offered. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to have our rustic reception!Sent on 11/05/2018
