My wedding here was perfection. I knew before I even visited I wanted to be married in the barn. Visiting in person was breathtaking. Marley was amazing throughout the whole planning process. She allowed me to come a few times to scope out how I wanted to set up tables, decor, etc. I planned mainly from a long distance away and she answered my emails promptly and with descriptive info. The day of, Morgan was a dream coordinating my ceremony. She honestly was perfect and so helpful and lovely at all times. Christine took over at the reception. She was so pleasant and fun. She helped I with everything, ensured we always had a drink, food, etc. From beginning to end working with Perona Farms was absolutely lovely. Our wedding dreams were brought to life. I can't say thank you enough.Sent on 11/04/2017

Our experience with Perona Farms was incredible from start to finish. Ivette, our wedding coordinator, was friendly, accessible, and professional. The venue itself was amazing (we got married in the Barn) - food, service, ambience - all top notch and everything that we were hoping for. We also rented the cottages for use before the ceremony which were a great touch and well worth reserving . The staff on the day of our wedding was phenomenal and we wanted for absolutely nothing! The pictures we were able to get on the grounds of the property were also out of this world.Sent on 04/28/2019
Our day was simply perfect and we could not have chosen a better place and group of people to help us make our day as amazing as it was. We would recommend this venue 1,000 times over.

Trip to Perona
My fiance and I visited Perona Farms where we were greeted with nothing by smiles from all the staff members. Our tour was very thorough and informative. When it came time to sit down to talk about a plan, we felt comfortable and had all the knowledge we needed in order to make any decisions. Our experience there was definitely memorable.Sent on 02/09/2019
