Get married at a venue with values at the Saltonstall Farm!
The Saltonstall Farm only accepts ten weddings per year, which will offset the costs of other renovation and operating costs. Taking care of those costs means that the venue can be offered for a very reduced price as a community center to the Seacoast community. The non-profit focuses are on sustainability, justice, healing and community. To check out the work of the non-profit based at the Saltonstall Farm, see their website at robinwoodcenter.org. What other venue can offer you the option of philanthropy for your site fee?! Although your wedding fee will not be tax deductible, you can make an additional gift to the non-profit that would be.
Historic, breath taking 4 story barn
The farm and barn are about 200 years old, and the barn was originally used for cows. Over the years, it has been very well taken care of, so the original beams are still there, in sizes and shapes that you just can't get anymore! The owners are the third generation in their family to take care of the property and are very grateful to be the current stewards. The barn renovations completed in 2020 and it is all ADA compliant and up to code. In the barn, there is a full sound system, 14 chandeliers, a beautiful live edge bar top, two high end composting toilets (the flushing kind!), massive barn blue doors on each end, and a grand entrance staircase. The barn holds up to 200 people and is big enough that you don't have to rent a tent even with tables and chairs, a major benefit and money saver! In the event of rain, you can use the barn as a ceremony and reception space.
The barn is attached to the farmhouse, where there is a private 3 bedroom apartment that is included in the wedding fee for two nights. It's the perfect place to get ready and to have a staging area before your big day! Also included in the price is lead up coordination and day of coordination with Love Affair, the wedding planning company. They will assist you throughout the entire process and will score you deals on rentals!
Is this the right venue for you?
The owners live on the property, near the barn, and have small children. Since they are the third generation, the farm and barn are sacred to them and they don't want them to be trashed or harmed during weddings. The farm is also in a residential area and to respect their neighbors, they have a strict 9pm end time. After that, you can take the party elsewhere if you want! If you're inviting more than 100 people, you'll need to request a police detail from the town. All of your vendors must have their own insurance and you must get your own insurance. Their wedding contract has more details for you to review and sign if you want to move forward! If you want to have a meaningful, wholesome wedding that supports a local non-profit to do good work in this world, this could be the right venue for you!

Exactly what we wanted
We got an idealic farm wedding, just like we wanted. Everything about the venue is quaint and feels more like having your wedding at a friend's farmhouse rather than something impersonal. I continue to hear friends and family rate our wedding as the "best" and I think it's because of house comfortable they felt at Saltonstall Farm.Sent on 05/24/2020

Picturesque Barn Venue
We had our wedding and reception at Saltonstall Farm in September and it was more perfect than we ever could have imagined. The venue made the entire planning process easy and stress free.
The day of was perfect. We got married in their natural cathedral of trees, had cocktail hour outside, and dinner in the barn. The close proximity of each event was very convenient for our older friends and family. The setting was amazingly beautiful and had endless options for taking our dream wedding photos.
If you're looking for a barn wedding venue, look no further. Saltonstall Farm really has it all.Sent on 05/15/2020
