    Amazing to say the least

    Where do I even begin. I found it appropriate to post this today, as Mike and I have been married 1 month today! We started looking/touring venues over a year prior to our wedding date- October 9, 2021. Mike stumbled upon Fat Apple Farm and coordinated a time to stop and see the venue. Upon arriving we were greeted with smiles. Steve, Nancy, and Sadie initially met us and walked us around the venue. They provided us with books of photos that included previous weddings, different table/chair layouts and the RED folder! This folder I still have today, even after the wedding lol. This detailed the MANY amenities that Fat Apple Farm provides. Upon discussing dates, not sure if it was coincidence or fate. I am now going with fate. A fall date had opened, October 9, 2021. I was stubborn and wanted a fall wedding, and this would be perfect. We saw everything that Fat Apple Farm had to offer and knew this was it! They encouraged us to check out all our options and view other venues (I originally thought this was weird) but later figured out they knew we would book with them 😊. The date was then set! Our wedding date- October 9, 2021. Our family obviously wanted to see the venue which Fat Apple Farm was more than accommodating with us coming multiple times to see. Within 30 days of our date, we set up an appt to review our final details and make our final selections of things we wanted to incorporate to our day. They literally never said no to me. I wanted lots of random things added and the only response they would give me was “we can make that happen” This made my wedding planning a breeze. Anything I needed done or wanted, taken care of. Thursday worked the best for me to decorate which they were happy to accommodate. I showed up with a large enclosed trailed with all my decorations etc. Everything was unpacked and decorated before I even knew what happened. Until you experience everything you have been planning the last year come to reality is truly amazing. Finally wedding day is here! All my girls arrived around 8:30 to start getting ready. This truly is a day long process. Sadie made sure everything was happening according to my timeline (found one online LOL) she even added things I literally never thought about. She helped me get in my dress-that is quite the production, carried extra Kleenex for me, how did I not know I would need that and even helped me to the bathroom: s …. I cannot thank Sadie enough for her kind support through all of this. Anyone that is considering this venue. 110% book Fat Apple Farm!!! All our guest(s) loved the venue and different options to spread out; sit by the fire or join in on the dance floor. I cannot thank Fat Apple Farm enough for EVERYTHING! From the smallest details to everything being packed up for me when I arrived for clean up the following morning. THANK YOU!

    Highly Recommend!!!

    We are so grateful that our original venue cancelled on us, because Fat Apple Farms was a dream come true! The venue is absolutely stunning and with so many perfect places for pictures. They also have a variety of decorations to use for all of the little touches. Having the venue for the entire weekend made our wedding day less stressful, and everything easier. Our rehearsal dinner at the farm and getting ready in the bridal suite was perfect and made things so much easier. Overall, the best part of the venue was the people, the Liverseed family. They were so flexible and accommodating to all of our wishes (not to mention their great sense of humor and friendly personalities). They had great suggestions and advice as to how to best prepare for the day. They suggested we used food trucks for our food venue (a big highlight of the night). On the day of the event, they were all hands on deck! They helped park cars, directed people, set up chairs and tables, restocked food trays, kept us on schedule, helped organize photos, fixed my dress (many times), flipped the dinner to a dance, ran the bar, and so much more! We were blown away by the support, organization, and flexibility. It was because of them that I did not stress on our wedding day. It was because of them that our wedding exceeded our wildest dreams. We can’t thank them enough. We highly recommend having your next event at Fat Apple Farms!

The Red Shed is such a lovely venue! I had the privilege of photographing the owner's daughter's wedding there. Such a large space to create whatever you like. Beautiful surroundings, including a pond and a hill for the perfect sunset. Ample space for parking as well. A great option!
