The tree is covered with Spanish moss and provides a stunning backdrop for wedding photos. Another ceremony location features a historical land sink, better known as Hidden Rock Hollow, which is surrounded by forest on all sides.

Best wedding day ever
Our experience getting married at West Light Farm was like a fairy tale. Our original 130+ guest wedding was canceled due to COVID-19 but my now husband and I were determined to still get married on our date. About a week away from the day we were to get married, while looking for a photographer we were connected with Betsy the owner of West Light Farm -the most beautiful 42 acre farm. Turns out, her and her husband are both photographers too! - And amazing ones at that. I can’t stop looking at my wedding pictures! It’s a pretty perfect combination for the owners of a venue to also be photographers if you ask me.
We went to go visit the farm and instantly fell in love, it was everything we ever dreamed to be surrounded by on our wedding day. Wide open green pastures, the most beautiful oak trees and the sounds of chirping birds in the background. The day of our wedding was nothing short of intimate and perfect, and everyone in attendance agrees! Betsy and Bernard have put so much love into creating west light farm and you can really feel it.
We are so happy that for the rest of our lives we will have the memories of getting married at what everyone has called “the perfect wedding venue”. Thank you again Betsy and Bernard for saving our wedding and helping us turn it into something magical!Sent on 05/01/2020
West Light Farm's reply:Big hugs & love to you both! It means so much to us that you were not only able to still have your day, but for it to be so special for all that was involved. We are happy to have you back any time you'd like to come visit! Make a 1st anniversary/double birthday vacation out of it next year & come stay in the Robert House! Lots of love!

We were married @ Hidden Rock Hollow @ West Light Farm . The weather was awful that day... Lots of Rain.... God granted us a window of about 20 mins to Walk down the aisle with a little bit of sunshine:) It was absolutely PERFECT!!! I'll admit I was a little high strung the day of our ceremony but Betsy was a saint and was so calming and willing to help in any way possible. Betsy even went to the ceremony site that morning and set all the benches up for us and cleaned off my burlap runner for me to walk down the aisle on :) My photographs from my wedding were STUNNING from the huge Southern Oak with the hanging chandelier to the Hidden Rock Hollow with the round wooden arbor that they provided ..... I was even able to decorate it myself :) My wedding was everything I ever dreamed of. Thank you West Light Farms for allowing us to use your beautiful venue!!!!!Sent on 10/28/2019

Beautiful, intimate, and relaxing place to get married!
We were married at the farm, underneath the beautiful 200+ year oak tree. Betsy went above and beyond to set up the ceremony site with benches, lanterns and a chandelier to help with photos, even though it was just me and my groom. Her bridal suite is clean and a very relaxing place to get ready. They also have a cart to drive you to the ceremony site so you do not have to walk in your dress. And though we already had a photographer booked, Betsy took additional photos for free that were absolutely stunning. I cannot recommend Betsy highly enough. She is so kind and generous, and she made our special day exceed every expectation.Sent on 10/08/2019
