Rescheduling with COVID-19
To all the brides out there with future weddings at Perona Farms- they could not have been more accommodating. They were super transparent about their rescheduling process and sensitive to our needs. They responded to our initial concerns when the pandemic started and gave us a timeline for rescheduling. It was great that they called to reschedule one wedding at a time, and gave you multiple dates in order to find one that lined up with your vendors. Our wedding coordinator, Ivette, called us to check in on how we were doing and was beyond sweet. She asked how we were doing, how we were feeling, and asked if she could do anything to help. I feel really lucky to have booked at Perona Farms, as it is clear they value family and their clients- through the good times and the bad!Sent on 04/20/2020

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.

We recently were married at Perona Farms, just prior to the closure of all venues. I could not have asked for a more perfect day. Like many people, we did not have much time to plan a wedding, with all the fine details that come up. Due to the beauty of Perona Farms Barns the decorations that we needed to provide were minimal. Our event coordinator, Ivette McGauley, was absolutely incredible from the moment we picked the venue. She responded to all of our emails nearly immediately and calmed our nerves from the start of the wedding day to the end. Every little concern that we may have had, Ivette and her staff took care of to make the both the planning process and our wedding day run smoothly.Sent on 04/02/2020
A few things that we and our guests particularly liked was the the food (obviously), the family style serving and the staffs attention to detail and cleanliness!
Thank you for making our day so special!
