I am so happy we found Sarah, and The 1812 Farm. Our wedding was breathtaking and even better than I could have imagined. Sarah was brilliant and constantly thought of things to plan for without it ever being on my mind. She covered everything. If anything went wrong on our wedding day, I wouldn’t know. And her staff was perfect. They treated my guests AMAZING. I had a friend tell a server who was passing hor’dourves “oh it’s ok I can’t eat gluten don’t worry about heading this way!” And instead of ignoring her she went and made a huge plate of gluten free options so she could enjoy cocktail hour too.
The venue itself is just perfect. Where we got ready was amazing, I couldn’t have imagined a better place!

We couldn’t have gotten married at a more beautiful place. The bridal suite, barn, ceremony lawn and gardens are all picturesque—I felt so special having our big day there and sometimes wanted to pinch myself. The staff is more accommodating and welcoming than I could probably ever explain. Everyone who attended the wedding was blown away by how great the venue was—I’m just so thankful we got married here. It was perfect.

The 1812 Farm was the perfect location for our wedding! Sarah was amazing, answering all my questions throughout the planning process and Cynthia, our day of coordinator, ensured everything went off without a hitch. The staff was phenomenal, ensuring we thought about nothing by having fun with our friends and family on our big day. We couldn't have asked for a better day and the team at the 1812 Farm made it happen!
Beautiful place for a wedding! The staff is amazing!!
Working with Sarah and the entire staff at The 1812 Farm is always a joy. They are always ready for anything and make sure that the day goes smoothly no matter what may be thrown their way. The venue itself, the barn and the grounds are meticulously upkept and have a rustic feel but include all the modern amenities. It's a wonderful place to get married and have a reception.
Fantastic venue!! Well run, great food and great location!!!
