    April 2022 Wedding Review

    We booked this venue for our wedding in April 2022 because we wanted our ceremony & reception on site. A lot of other venues charge a minimum amount of money for Fridays/Saturdays, but the Farmhouse does not. Dawn & Richard were so helpful throughout the planning process and the day of. Dawn would email me back same day or next day and addressed all of my concerns. The venue is so pretty and does not need a lot of extra decor. I loved the open floor plan and the tent outside. The chiavari chairs are included and they have spotlights for the tables. It was so pretty at night. The food was amazing and severs/bartenders were all great. We couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our wedding! It was better than I could have imagined. Thank you so much to all of the staff at The Farmhouse at People’s Light!!!
