These elements and the functionality of the property’s many spaces help you to celebrate your wedding with ease and enjoyment.

Facilities and Capacity

As such, there are a variety of ways in which you can arrange the locations throughout the property to mark your big day. There is the option of a gazebo as well as a chapel for exchanging your vows. A garden on the property adds to the whimsical nature of the farm and also provides a setting for photoshoots.

Sound systems can also be provided, helping everyone to hear the magical moment when you say “I do.”

Cuisine

The farm has a menu specially made for weddings. You have the option of plated or buffet-style for your special day. Your guests can choose between an array of chicken dishes complemented by fresh salads and pasta creations, among other culinary delights. Bar services are also available to top off your event’s meal.

History

The property that The Larimore sits on was purchased in 1850 by Wilson Larimore. In 1858 the manor house that you can now host your wedding in was built. A number of the accents and details were crafted in the Italianate style, giving the house a sense of refinement. Eventually, the Penningroth family bought the property and for a century used it as a holiday home. Finally, in the late 80s, the house was purchased and the new owners renovated the mansion with attention to all the historical details.

    Larimore provided everything needed and more for our wedding ceremony/reception. This could not have gone more smoothly without the help and careful preparation of Dena. Months after, our guests are still letting us know how great it was. We can't recommend this venue enough!

    Officiated a wedding at this beautiful venue in Sept 2015 and could not have been more pleased with the setting and the work of the husband/wife in coordinating the entrance of the wedding party for the ceremony. Made my work easy and I know the couple was pleased.
