We had our Friday June evening cocktail wedding reception @ The Farm House and it was perfect. We had an outside ceremony followed by cocktail hour and food stations. The food was fantastic. Cathy is professional, knowledgeable and a delight to work with. I recommend The Farm House, highly!Sent on 07/17/2019

Wedding Celebration Luncheon
We cannot rave enough about our experience with The Farmhouse at People’s Light. Cathy Lewandowski was absolutely wonderful – from offering suggestions (even down to how to add color to the room by draping the turquoise napkins off the edge of the table), to answering a ton of questions, to even assisting us in setting up the tables with our decorations. Everyone commented how delicious the food was, as well as the excellent service. The entire venue setting was beautiful, too. Our daughter and son-in-law were married a month earlier in Grand Cayman with only the immediate families attending. So, we wanted this celebration to be a special treat for them to share with friends and the rest of the families. Very, very happy we selected The Farmhouse for our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding celebration luncheon. It was perfect!Sent on 06/11/2019

Perfect venue, inside and out!
We are so happy we decided to have our wedding here! Cathy made the entire process smooth and stress free. The venue itself is beautiful and the food was delicious! We chose to have our ceremony outside and it was truly stunning!Sent on 04/27/2019
