Wedding of my Dreams
I recently just got married at Up The Creek Farms. Not only was the venue beautiful, the staff was hands down amazing. They were so friendly and the best in the business. Briana was our planner and “Wedding day of” coordinator, and I couldn’t be more thankful. She is beyond talented and the friendliest person you will ever meet. She makes everything run so smoothly. Everyone asked if I was stressed with Wedding planning, and the truth was Briana made it so smooth and fun, wedding planning was completely stress free. Kelly was our floral Designer and her talent is unmatched. She was so sweet and great to work with. She made our vision come to life better than we could have ever imagined. Everyone couldn’t get over how beautiful all of the flowers and centerpieces were. It was above and beyond what I had ever hoped for. Jess, the owner, is also one of the kindest people you will ever meet. She is very accommodating and always available to help if you need. We got so many compliments from our wedding guests that our wedding was the most beautiful venue they had ever been to. I couldn’t be happier that we chose UTCF as our venue. It was a dream come true.Sent on 12/06/2019

Up the Creek Farms is the only venue I visited and yet I knew instantly that Luke and I would be getting married there! Not only is it a gorgeous venue, but the people, Jess and Brianna and the whole staff, were so sweet and welcoming. Throughout the journey of planning, they were very responsive and helpful. They went above and beyond to make our day the best day ever. They also had many amazing recommendations when we were unsure of which DJ or hair stylist to hire! They were flexible and took every curve ball we threw at them with a smile. Brianna, our wedding coordinator through the venue, put my nervous heart at ease. She did an amazing job alongside the rest of the team to make my Pinterest visions come to life! We also used UTCF for our florals, which were stunning! We also got ready in the Decklan house, which I highly recommend. The day flew by in a blur, but it was gorgeous and stress-free thanks to Up the Creek Farms.Sent on 08/17/2019
