We had a vision in my head of what I wanted our wedding to be and thanks to River Road Farm it was better then we could have ever imagined! Not only is the property itself absolutely stunning, the accommodations were spectacular. It was just so much fun to have my family together for the entire weekend on site. However, it was really the people working at River Road Farm who made our weekend truly magical. There wasn't a single thing we had to worry about, they truly went above and beyond. It was one of the most wonderful weekends of my life!Sent on 03/30/2016

The Dream Wedding Venue for the Most PERFECT Weekend
My husband I cannot say enough great things about River Road Farm and the staff that works there! From beginning to end we had the most exceptional experience working with Linda, Seth and their team! We had our rehearsal dinner, welcome drinks and our dream wedding at this beautiful venue and to say that our guests were wowed by the venue would be an understatement! We loved every single second of working with the entire RRF team, and are already speaking with friends about having a "reunion" next year at the residence at the venue! We cannot recommend River Road Farm enough!Sent on 07/01/2019

We had a little hiccup in our wedding plans late in the game and needed to find a new venue ASAP. Somehow the universe conspired to bring us to River Road Farm, and I couldn't be more grateful! Linda and all her staff went above and beyond to make sure our wedding went off without a single issue--they are the kindest, most caring people, and they made our wedding even more special than I could ever imagine! Planning was a breeze, and communication as easy as pie. I haven't stopped hearing compliments regarding the beautiful venue and the magic of the night since the wedding a week ago. On top of all this, my party and I were able to stay in the on-site lodging the whole wedding weekend, which meant I got to spend time with everyone I love and not worry about traveling back and forth or spending extra resources on finding everyone before major events. I can't recommend it enough! If you want to wow your guests and experience a team of people who are 100% on your team, then look no further!Sent on 06/02/2018
