The Perfect Wedding Venue
The owners/staff at STF could not have been nicer and more helpful. The grounds are obviously beautiful so we knew we’d be good to go with that, but the staff was so accommodating and went above and beyond to make our weekend the best it could be. They even offered to drive guests home late night who missed the shuttle! When I say above and beyond, I mean it. They’ve also made some beautiful renovations to the property with more to come. I’d 100% recommend this place if you want to have the most beautiful wedding possible.Sent on 07/06/2019

I cannot say enough positive things about this venue and the entire Stone Tavern Farm. Finding a venue that could accommodate our 2 day Pakistani/Jamaican fusion wedding extravaganza was not easy! When we found STF and visited the farm, we knew it was it. From my groom coming in on a white horse (traditional South Asian entrance), to the party going until the wee hours of the morning, to having fireworks and a whiskey/cigar bar, to the gorgeous backdrop and scenery - it really could not have been more perfect. If you are looking for a very unique venue that has a ton of flexibility that people will remember forever, and that will be more like a family and friends reunion rather than like every other wedding and venue - Stone Tavern is your place! Please note that while you get the venue for the entire week/weekend and price is very fair, you have to cover everything else besides the space yourself - including caterers, florists, all design/decor items including linens, plates, glasses, musicians/DJ, etc. So this is a very DIY venue, just make sure you bake that into your budget!Sent on 11/08/2017
