Absolutely perfect! We are still coming down for the high of my daughter’s wedding at Up the Creek Farms! My daughter grew up always saying she would never have an outdoor wedding because she didn’t want to stress of possible rain. From the minute she walked onto the grounds of UTC she knew it was the place for her wedding! She didn’t even care if it rained, it would be worth it! The entire staff at UTC went above and beyond to make her day absolutely perfect. Brianna was her wedding planner and was there every step of the way, answering questions, and giving great advice. The options are unlimited, it doesn’t matter what your vision, they can fulfill your dreams.
Kelly did an amazing job with the design and flowers! It is so great to have an entire team right there at UTC to ensure a most beautiful day.
It rained the entire time we were getting ready for the wedding, and there was a 90% chance of rain and my daughter didn’t even care! She knew that what ever happened that Brianna and her crew would take care of everything! At the last minute the rain stopped and the sun came out and the UTC staff went to work setting up the most beautiful wedding!
The entire night if anyone needed anything Brianna was right there with the answer! So many people commented that everything was absolutely perfect!
You can not put a price tag on the sense of calm that you get when planning a wedding at Up the Creek Farms! Thank you so much to Jess, Kelly and Brianna for making Elizabeth and Natasha’s day absolutely perfect!Sent on 09/30/2020

Best Day of My Life
Up the Creek Farms is the best venue around. Hands down. Lets start with Briana our planner who handled everything like a boss!!! She took care of all the things and could answer my questions with speed and professionalism. Then there’s Kelly the florist and designer who literally read my mind with my vision. They do such a great job taking all your ideas, making them realistic within your budget, and executing with perfection. Also, they are so dog friendly!!!!!!!!! This was super important for us in finding the perfect venue. I also recommend adding on the Decklan House for getting ready. We took so many pictures and it allowed us to get single photos on the property as well!! It’s so gorgeous. I don’t even have enough words to fully explain how wonderful everything went. Thank you guys!!!! Highly recommend!!Sent on 05/12/2021
