About The Farmhouse

The Farmhouse is a charming countryside wedding venue located in Wilmington, Delaware. This lovingly restored destination offers all the comforts of various modern amenities with a dash of rustic authenticity. It is nestled upon four acres of pristine land where lush forests grow and babbling creeks flow.

Both indoor and outdoor event spaces are available for your various nuptial activities. The property is spacious enough to accommodate up to 190 individuals, making it an idyllic destination for intimate gatherings as well as extravagant ones. Each area is flexible enough to transform according to your unique vision and event theme. Outside ceremonies can take place under an enchanting wooden pergola defined by a backdrop of hanging willow tree vines. Your exciting reception can be hosted inside The Farmhouse itself. Lofty ceilings, vast windows, and skylights are just a few of the appealing features to be found here.
