    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!

    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!
