An amazing venue
An amazing venue. An amazing team, an amazing experience. Nick and Lindsey were both amazing, and helped our day run seamlessly.Sent on 10/14/2019

I am so thrilled that we chose Pond View for our wedding and reception. Every detail was thought out and even though we couldn’t be in town for much of the planning it went very smoothly via facetime and email. I cant count the number of wedding guests who raved about how gorgeous the property was. It even downpoured an hour or so before our ceremony and the crew went out and dried all the seats and the wedding area for us! I cant recommend them enough.Sent on 08/21/2019

Perfect, perfect, perfect :)
Ill start by saying this, there is NO WAY, that you will check out Pond View Farm in person and not run to the computer as soon as your home to book your date. The Farm is drop dead gorgeous. My wife and I got married there on 08.04.19 and things could not have gone more perfect. First things first; Shane & Jackie (the owners), are two of the most down to earth, humble and hard working people. If it had not been for me meeting Shane on the day that we went to see the venue for the first time, I would not have known it was him on wedding day. I say that because these people are the ones working the hardest, moving up and down, making sure everything goes perfect; and always, always always with a big smile on :)Sent on 08/15/2019
To be honest we booked with Pond View Farms without ever seeing any other venues in person. The price is well worth it, you get to use the nicely decorated suites, and you get to be in the farm since the early AM. They also have a BUNCH of lawn games available, there are many horses, a peacock, ducks, birds, cats, etc... aside from that you have that beautiful pond, the perfectly placed willow trees and that breath taking barn. Honestly it may sound too good to be true when someone hears me talking about PVF, but its all true; at the end of it all they are simply the perfect Venue. Now let me go on to Nick.... I do not really know what Nick's official title is, but to me he is the "Can Do Anything Guy". Nick is quick with E-Mails, calls and when you meet him, he will be just another reason to book PVF for your special day. Nick knows it all, he is like a walking FAQ person lol He is very laid back but at the same time he is meticulous and caring of any special requests/needs that you require. Lastly (if you ask him too that is) he can be extremely honest with you and tell you what he thinks as far as decorations and any logistics of the wedding (I personally like when people are upfront and can tell me, "that would look nice" and or "that would not" lol), Nick can be both, if you ask him his opinion he will be very honest and to those people that don't necessarily like that, he is at the very same time, very discreet and professional, he can do both to better accommodate your needs (I would suggest you ask him to be direct, he gives some awesome ideas/advise, we are glad that he told us straight up about some of our ideas that we had, in which he was completely right and they would NOT have been very good ones on OUR part).
Lastly I will talk about Lindsey (the day of coordinator), I was unsure about Ms. Lindsey Sommer in the beginning, I had not met her but was not sure we needed a "day of coordinator". In fact we met with Nick (3) weeks prior to the BIG DAY! :D
And that's when we met Lindsey in person, she was running up and down decorating the barn, making sure each table looked stunning, making sure each napkin was perfectly placed on top of each china plate, wrapping the barn posts with LED lights and getting on top of the ladders (have you ever seen the old cartoons, when they are moving fast all you see is like the dust or cloud behind them? Imagine that, Lindsey literally everywhere taking care of details, because she knows its YOUR special day) I remember towards the end of our meeting with Nick, Eva (my wife) and I walked out to the Pavilion (bar area) and since I like being straight forward; I asked Nick "Is it worth it to get Lindsey for the wedding, be honest". and he said "Absolutely yes, you wont regret it!, she does so much, you don't know it yet, but you will need her there". I said "Okay, that's all I needed to hear, lets do it!"
We quickly walked back into the barn and sat down to talk to Lindsey, she went over some details with us and we were out on our way.....
WEDDING DAY IS FINALLY HERE :D
And Nick....was absolutely right!!!! Lindsey makes the day move smoothly, she is like a personal assistant, she helps soooo much with EVERYTHING. Quite simply there is no way our day would have been as special without Lindsey. Eleven days have passed since our wedding day :(
Yet we are still hearing of several "issues" that Lindsey fixed (in the backgrounds) without us ever even knowing, she is that person who is making sure things go perfectly.
She moves people from room to room, she talks to the bands and gives them the Q's, the same thing with the DJ; she talks to the guests and also to the bride and groom to make sure you stay on schedule (the wedding goes by so fast, so many people, that you will lose track of time, I guarantee it). She talks to your photographers and videographers to make sure everyone is on the same page, and she doesn't just do it once, she is constantly asking you "is everything okay?" "You need anything?" ALL DAY!!!! she does that all day for you, at the end of the night she is the first person to help you clean up your decorations and put them back in the boxes....I would need more time and more space to talk about everything she does, but just imagine this:
Its your wedding day, you have been practicing for this day for at least a year, (girls for thre whole life lol) but wait, you have to go decorate, make sure everything looks nice, then you have to talk last minute logistics with the DJ, than find out why the band is late, where is the pastor?...
Later on the day, things are going perfect aside from the fact that your guest will stop you and take quick pictures with you anytime your free (dont blame them they want to be part of your forever memories as well), but oh wait, you did not give the Q's to the bands so they are a bit unsure on when to stop playing, and when its time for your first dance, who is gonna let your DJ know when to cut off the song (or are you gonna dance all 5 minutes of it?)
the same goes for photographers and the videographers, for your guest and your bridal party, on top of that you need to stay on a tight schedule and; oh wait; on top of that one, you need to take a million pictures with your guests and make sure everyone is having a good time....." THE END....
That is literally unfair to you (the bride and groom) to do on YOUR day, let Lindsey and Nick, and Shane & Ms. Jackie take that pressure off of you....
Thank you to everyone at Pond View Farm,
Thank you Nick, Lindsey, Shane & Jackie!
Thanks to you all; our wedding was our dream wedding,
1) the food was perfect,
2) your venue was perfect,
3) the staff is also perfect,
PVF = PPP....perfect....perfect....perfect!!!!

We always love working with the family at Pond View Farm. They have taken a lot of time to transform this into one of the most sought after barn venues in Maryland. With it's breathtaking ceremony site right in front of the pond and fountain, you can't go wrong. We always look forward to working with Nick and the rest of the family as that's how they treat you, like family.

One of the most stunning locations to hold a wedding. The entire staff at the Pond View Farm are extremely polite and catering. They will bend over backwards to ensure a successful event. Everytime we have been hired to work there, we smile because we are welcomed and we know the event will be a blast.
