About The Farmhouse

At the Farmhouse, a wedding venue located in Wilmington, Delaware, couples and guests will get to experience the rich history of this “Hidden Gem” venue. While the exact date this farmhouse was built is unknown, it is estimated to have been built between 1830 to 1840. Even though it served many purposes over the years and has been renovated, its rich history and vintage touches remain intact. Now, at this rustic wedding venue, couples can exchange their vows and take part in the history of this private farmhouse.

Facilities and Capacity
This intimate venue offers couples indoor, covered outdoor and uncovered outdoor spaces. These intimate spaces can be enjoyed with up to 190 of your friends and family. Couples and guests will be amazed by the dramatic cathedral ceilings and pewter chandeliers hanging above. You also have access to the wrap-around deck and outdoor gazebo bar. With this kind of flexibility, you can plan aspects of your wedding both indoors and outdoors. Of course, you can also explore the property’s four acres and pick the perfect outdoor setting. Couples and guests will be surrounded by a variety of trees and blooms as they experience a peaceful wedding in nature. For entertaining before or after the wedding, couples and guests can gather in the large inside bar or the guest lounge.

The outdoor ceremony site will be completely updated for all weddings starting in 2019 with a new beautiful pergola to replace the ceremony gazebo as the backdrop for all outdoor wedding ceremonies!

    When you hear a name over and over and great things are being said, you pay attention! The Farmhouse has been the choice for many of the couples I've married, as well as those coming up in the future! As a wedding officiant from Newark, Delaware, serving the Tri-State area, The Farmhouse provides couples with the beauty and charm that they desire on the biggest day of their life! They hit the mark every time --I highly recommend The Farmhouse to those who love the country-like experience with all the elegant trimmings.
