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:
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.
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.

Keith and Julie go above and beyond with their beautiful venue. We had a perfect weather day and had our ceremony outside by the birch trees. (Highly recommend) The jaw dropping scene of the doors opening as the bride came out was stunning. The nice part of having the wedding here is you can use the barn Friday- Sunday. We used it for the reception/dinner on Friday (for an extra cost) and were able to set up our own decorations and get everything set up. We would highly recommend having your wedding here as it was one for the record books! Venue and grounds are absolutely beautiful!Sent on 08/20/2019

Fabulous Venue & Great Care
This was a dream venue. It's not only gorgeous to look at, but also incredibly well-built - and it's situated on vast property with incredible views. Keith and Julie, who own and run the venue, were a total pleasure to work with from start to finish, and always went out of their way to make our day as special as possible. Highly recommend!!!Sent on 06/19/2019
