    Built-in charm, good food and easy planning

    The Farmhouse is beautiful and has so much charm that you don't need extra decor. Anna coordinated our wedding and did a great job! She answered all our questions promptly and made planning low stress. Very professional and on top of things. Our food was very good and they worked with us to provide allergy-free meals for some of our guest. Plus it was much more affordable than other vendors in the area! I would recommend to anyone looking for a charming wedding with low stress planning.

    AMAZING!! Best Night of my Life!

    From the very beginning, Katie and her team were so amazing to work with and have as a part of my wedding team. Katie helped me with every decision, and was so flexible and accommodating on the wedding day.

    She turned my vision into a reality! Every little detail or item I purchased, her and her team set up in the most beautiful ways possible. It was so hot on my wedding day, and she made the ceremony go so quickly and smoothly so our guests could get inside fast.

    I cannot say enough about how amazing working with the Farmhouse was. AND, on top of all of that, the all-inclusive pricing was fantastic. I looked at about 10 venues before touring the Farmhouse, and their pricing by far was THE best. I mean, OPEN BAR, cake, all settings and help the day of, centerpieces, and the venue was under $12,000 for about 90 guests. You cannot beat that; on top of the fact that the property was just beautiful period.

    I loved everything about my experience at the Farmhouse and will always recommend it as a top choice for any wedding!

    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.
