Best Night Of My Life

The Farmhouse is an incredible, beautiful and fun venue to host your reception/wedding. My husband and I had an amazing experience! Dawn and Richard were so professional, responsive and made the day stress free and easy. The speciality drinks were out of this world and we are still getting compliments a month later. 10/10 recommend this venue to anyone an everyone!

Lovely, beautiful, and amazing!

We were married on 2/3/24 and was planned in 6 weeks! I truly can’t believe how lucky we were to pull off so quickly. Dawn and Richard made it run smoothly with their magic on short notice. They provided recommendations to vendors and provided fantastic service with their staff. We were blown away for weeks after the event! We are so glad People Light handled our wedding. Many thank yous :)

Wedding of my Dreams

We had our wedding here in September of 2023, and their performance exceeded my expectations in making my big day come true! Dawn and Richard were a pleasure to work with, any decor I brought they set up exactly how I wanted, and also added their own personal touches to it also to make it even better.
Food was phenomenal here, guests loved it. The whole process was very seamless and I never felt silly with any questions I had for them.
I would absolutely recommend having your wedding here.
