The Orchards at Rocking Horse Farm is an elegant, rustic wedding venue in Jamesville, New York — just 10 miles away from downtown Syracuse. The scenic indoor/outdoor venue was built specifically with barn and farm weddings in mind and has been hosting weddings in the Syracuse area since 2017. With over 150 acres of picturesque landscape, The Orchards at Rocking Horse Farm has all the makings for a dream barn wedding: alpacas, apple orchards, horses, miniature donkeys, a pond, and a tree farm.

Facilities and Capacity
The Orchard’s main ceremony site is a three-story 5,200 square foot barn, complete with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and built from an authentic timber frame. The venue can accommodate up to 200 guests per event, whether it’s an elopement, an engagement party, a reception, a rehearsal dinner, or a wedding ceremony. And if you’re looking more for an outdoor venue, The Orchards at Rocking Horse Farm has you covered. You can have your ceremony at a variety of locations on the farm, including:

  • Among the pine trees
  • Between two birch trees
  • By the pond
  • In the apple orchard

Services Offered
The Orchards has on-site parking available for about 70 vehicles, offers shuttle services, and is wheelchair accessible. They only host one wedding per weekend, giving each couple the space they need to setup and clean up in a stress-free atmosphere. Couples even have use of the property’s expansive gardens, lawn areas, and patios for outdoor activities (aside from the ceremony). The Orchards is able to provide couples with event rentals and have chairs, decor, and tables ready to be used.

Other Services
The Orchards not only gives you free reign of the property from Friday to Sunday, but includes a variety of spaces and accommodations within the barn itself. The upstairs portion of the barn has areas that can be used for extra seating or a bridal suite. The first story has a full-service bar made from reclaimed American Chestnut with two bartender stations available for use, and even has handicap-accessible bathrooms.

Breathtaking Location and Fantastic Owners!

We had a truly picture perfect wedding at The Orchards thanks to Keith and Julie! They did all the research and literally built the barn to have all the details a couple could need like make-up lights and extra outlets in the bridal suite, and having the all fans strategically placed to keep the venue cool and comfortable. We did very little extra decorating because the grounds and the barn itself were so inherently beautiful, and we got so many compliments about the big bride reveal through the large double doors into the ceremony. Keith and Julie also went out of their way to make sure everything came together, like when our napkins were late they made all the phone calls to make sure they were overnighted and on the tables in time for the big day! They're also just pleasant to work with and put a smile on your face whenever you see them! Highly recommend for your perfect day!

Awesome Venue

Keith and Julie were great to work with! They were both really helpful throughout the planning process. We were married 11/2 and it was a bit chilly and they got us extra heaters to ensure that we were all comfortable throughout the night! Such a beautiful venue and beautiful day!

Charming location owned by great people!

Our wedding day went so smoothly and it was an absolutely perfect day. Keith and Julie are very nice and flexible. It was great being able to design the venue on Friday, have a beautiful wedding Saturday and not have to take anything down until Sunday. We opted in to add a bonfire and it was a great addition. This venue comes highly recommended by us!
