Amazing wedding experience!

We had our wedding at River Road Farm and we could not have asked for better venue! Their team worked seamlessly with all our vendors to make sure we had the best day ever. They went above and beyond in every aspect, especially in making sure our day would be accessible for one of our guests who uses a wheelchair. We cannot thank them enough!

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!
