If you’re looking for a beautiful, rustic (but renovated!), convenient and cost effective wedding venue, then look no further. My husband and I stumbled across Peirce Farm after looking at 10 venues, and the moment we arrived and spoke with Sean, we knew we’d be getting married here. First, the price and what is included in the venue was BY FAR the most reasonable of all of the venues we looked at. We loved the different areas on the grounds, so even though everything was happening at Peirce Farm, there was a different spot for the ceremony, cocktail hour (giving guests house access to the amazing Victorian home), and the barn (with AC!) for the reception. Sean and his staff were also incredible to work with. They are very responsive, organized, and flexible with ideas, so it truly felt like this was “our wedding” vs a standard/cookie-cutter wedding at a venue with tons of rules and regulations to follow. Other things that popped out to us in addition to the beautiful barn, house, and grounds, and amazing staff, were being able to have the reception until midnight, having access to the grounds the entire day of the wedding, and so much more. Can’t beat it for the price and beauty, and we’d highly recommend it!

It was magical at Peirce Farm
I am very excited to write this review because it is so well deserved!
We got married on Winter Solstice under the full moon and I can not imagine my wedding anywhere else in the world.
Peirce Farm is simply one of the most magical venues on the North Shore. The house and barn are so beautiful; each in their own way.
The house was an elegant backdrop for pictures and to get ready for the ceremony. It was decorated beautifully and the oversized hand carved stairway was gorgeous. We were allowed to use the house from 8AM-11PM the day of our wedding. There were ample rooms to have hair and make up done and to simply relax before the ceremony.
The barn where we got married and had our reception will forever be one of my favorite places. The energy and atmosphere was so warm and welcoming. As we were decorating it; we just wanted to be there as long as possible.
It was a stormy wedding night and the barn was lit with twinkling lights, candles and a fire in the floor to ceiling fireplace. It made the reception of 130 feel like we were in an intimate setting without feeling crowded.
But by far one of the best things about Peirce Farm is Bill and Candice. They are the terrific hosts and helped us with every detail for the reception set up. I even changed the floor plan last minute and Bill accommodated me with a calm and kind manner. Candice made sure the reception went off like clockwork and ran back and forth with oversized umbrellas for the guests and our wedding party. They put in so much effort and made our night seamless. I can not thank them enough.
My only regret is that I do not have another event this year to rent this spectacular venue.

Best Venue Ever
If you're looking for a barn wedding with a rustic/vintage vibe, you have to book with Peirce Farm! The space is already decorated and set so nicely that you don't need too much to make it perfect. I had so many guests tell me during the reception that they were in love with the place and wished they had had their wedding there. The staff was amazing throughout the entire process and was so laid back and easygoing about everything - TRUST ME, this makes a huge difference! We were able to make the day our own in every single way, just how it should be! Thank you for everything - this venue was a dream turned reality for us.

Peirce Farm is one of the nicest venues we've worked at. I'd suggest that any couple looking for a rustic-chic barn wedding should consider it. Aside from the quality of the venue itself, Sean, Bill, and everyone else on their team are very kind and go the extra mile to make sure their couples have fantastic weddings.
