    Gorgeous Venue

    Switzer Farm was a perfect venue for our wedding. Due to the pandemic, we began working with Gary to plan our wedding a year and a half in advanced. Gary is one of the most responsive individuals I’ve ever worked with and provides details of information- which as someone who likes to plan, I loved! In the venue contract, there are stipulations that require a wedding planner, and I can’t recommend highly enough how helpful that was. Staying in the house was incredible and made it so easy to enjoy our wedding weekend. We not only hosted the ceremony and reception of 65 guests there, but also the rehearsal luncheon with 45 guests on the deck. We used the bluff for the ceremony, the garden for the cocktail hour and the lawn for the reception. Our friends and family raved about how beautiful the location was and how unique everything felt. Our bridal party of 18 stayed in the house with us and could not stop complimenting all the details that Gary has put into the house. My only advice would be to brides that don’t have the time, is that this venue is not all-inclusive. All vendors will have to be hired on your own time and therefore, if you don’t think you can put in all the time that it takes to coordinate such an endeavor, this may not be the venue for you. But if you do have the time, all the work is completely worth it.

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Caleb. And congratulations on your marriage! It was our great pleasure hosting your wedding weekend. Come back and visit us! Cheers, gary

    If you want the most magical wedding, choose Switzer Farm!

    My husband and I held our wedding here in late September and it was the most magical and special day. Switzer Farm is the venue of a lifetime. We knew we wanted to have a venue where our friends and family could stay with us and Switzer was just that. It is a beautiful setting, right on the ocean. The house is like a museum with all it's amazing historical artifacts. Gary, the owner, was incredibly kind, responsive, and helpful. He went above and beyond to make sure our day was special and we are so appreciative. We would HIGHLY recommend Switzer Farm for the wedding of your dreams. Thanks Gary!!!

    The PERFECT setting for your perfect day!

    Switzer Farm was a dream come true. The house and the grounds were something out of a storybook and made for the most perfect day me and my husband could have imagined. Gary was super helpful and responsive. He provided us with everything we needed to make the day stress free. The kitchen is incredible, the house is beautifully restored and very comfortable and the property itself is... well, nothing short of breathtaking. I honestly couldn't recommend it enough. It exceeded our expectations, and they were already pretty high! haha

    Switzer Farm's reply:

    Thanks, Caroline! It was our pleasure hosting your beautiful wedding last week! The review form seems to say your wedding will happen in 2020 for some reason, so you and Sean are most welcome to come back and do it all over again! Seriously, we would love to have you back any time. Congratulations to you and Sean and your family! Cheers, gary
