    The perfect venue at the pefect price!

    Booking The Farmhouse for our venue was the best decision we made in our planning process. While finding and booking a venue can be one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding, the attentive and professional staff at The Farmhouse will make planning not only easy but ENJOYABLE! From touring the venue during an open house, to attending the tasting event, to the day itself, this venue exceeded our expectations at every turn.

    Laura, our planner, was communicative and professional throughout the process. She answered every one of our questions and provided us excellent guidance on how to create an event that was memorable and enjoyable for all. After watching her buzz around the day of our wedding taking care of EVERY detail, our family now simply refers to her as "Wonder Woman." Both she and the staff made sure every facet of our wedding day was perfect and exactly what we wanted. Our guests raved about the quality of the service from every member of the staff.

    But the rave review did not stop there! We heard from numerous guests that the food, from the passed hors d'oeuvres to the entrees, were the BEST food they have ever had at a wedding. I will say, we have to agree.

    Finally, I am so thankful to have found such a beautiful venue that offered so many options for pictures. The ceremony site is gorgeous and green and the house itself provides a perfect atmosphere. I am shocked this venue is not booked years in advance but I will always be grateful to have celebrated our day at a venue that provided us service, a beautiful space, and delicious food all at an affordable price.

    Elegant, great food, easy set up and take down

    The staff was great, they did the decorations so quick setting up and taking down, and did it just the way I had hoped. We got so many compliments on the food and cake from Desserts by Dana! Everyone raved about the outside area and how it was so nice

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.
