    "They took great care of my wife, and that's all that matters"

    We planned our wedding in under six months and (having never done this before) had no idea what we were doing. Katie was very understanding from the beginning and worked to really understand what we wanted and helped us figure out the best path to get there. The team there is very busy (understandably so) and I was a little nervous that we would feel generic and rushed because of it, but the day of, the team's service well exceeded our expectations. Katie was proactive in anticipating things we might need, attentive if we did need anything, and extremely professional. (She also was wise in paying extra attention to the bride! haha) The whole night was beyond what we imagined and the setting, food, and service at the Farmhouse really made for a phenomenal celebration.

    The best wedding venue!!

    The Farmhouse was the best decision we could’ve made for our wedding! Planning a wedding is extremely overwhelming and there’s so many decisions that need to be made. The Farmhouse was so great with alleviating stress. We brought our decorations and told them our ideas and they set it all up for us! Also having other vendors that work closely with them helped us immensely, as most everything was included in venue price and we really only needed to find a dj and photographer after booking with them! The food was great, the service was wonderful and everything was just a dream come true! 10/10 would recommend!!

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.
