    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!!

    Beyond Perfect!!!

    I just got married here at Up the Creek Farms this past weekend and it was truly the best day of my life! Briana was my wedding planner and she helped me throughout the whole planning process and on our day made everything go so smoothly!! Kelly did an incredible job on flowers and decor that when I saw my bouquet it was so perfect I burst into tears of happiness and same with all of the decorations at the ceremony and reception areas!! It was a complete dream come true and they truly think of everything so it turns out to be just the way you want it. I cannot say enough good things about this venue! The food was by flawless, the entertainment was incredible, and I would choose Up the Creek Farms over and over again! Thank you for my perfect memories!!!
