Amazing experience all around!
From the minute we met Dawn and Richard we knew we found our wedding venue. Unlike many of the venues in the PA/NJ area that felt very corporate and just out to make money, Dawn and Richard made us feel at home. They were very flexible, accommodating, and said they would do everything they could to make sure our Covid wedding happened (I did not want to have to move dates). They felt like teammates and family not just event managers. Leading up to the wedding, Dawn was extremely responsive and always willing to hop on a call or take a meeting if we were in town from NYC. She even took various meeting with our vendors to ensure everything went smoothly.Sent on 05/01/2021
Now onto the wedding: We had private access to the entire venue all day and night which was a key selling point for us especially in COVID. The venue has so much character and is a perfect combination of rustic, chic, and elegant. They have done an amazing job with their recent renovations so everything feels modern while still maintaining its historic/rustic character. The service and presentation of everything from start to finish was impeccable. Even when we arrived, Dawn set up the cutest food and beverage stations for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Dawn and her team were constantly checking in and made sure everything ran smoothly. I can’t tell you one thing that went wrong (and I would have noticed as an event planner myself). The ceremony was beautiful on the lawn.. Dinner in the tent (which is also beautiful) felt like an elegant and magical garden party. The food was absolutely amazing and I’m a huge foodie (as are my guests). Everyone was raving about the venue/food all night and left full unlike a lot of weddings. I could go on and on with this review. My wedding was everything I could have hoped for and more. Look no further and book Farmhouse! It’s truly a magical venue with the most amazing staff you’ll ever meet.

The perfect day
My husband and I made the best decision by choosing The Farmhouse for our wedding reception! The venue is beautiful, and the food was delicious! We had full access to the property all day. Dawn and Richard were responsive, patient, and flexible while navigating all the uncertainty of COVID. Our wedding day ran smoothly thanks to their professionalism; during the reception, they continually checked in with me, my husband, and our parents about any needs. Thank you for the most perfect day!Sent on 12/07/2020
