WGF Events, LLC, is a wedding ceremony and reception venue in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, that resides on 170 acres of woodlands and is just 90 miles outside of Washington DC. The rolling hills provide the perfect backdrop to your weekend at this intimate, country venue. The Shepherd family founded and maintained the WGF property, seeing it through three periods of construction that resulted in a merging of architectural styles. Although the farm has changed hands multiple times since the 1940s, you’re guaranteed to experience the original character.

The restored Gala Barn completes the rustic vibe of the grounds, perfect for couples who desire a more historic location as the backdrop for their day.

The lower level of the barn features newly painted walls, fixtures, floral displays, and furniture that resembles the uniqueness of New Orleans.

Perfect spot for a DIY wedding
We recently hosted our 170 person wedding in early November at Wild Goose, and found it to be a perfect venue for a DIY style wedding. First of all, there are so many picturesque places on the property for the actual ceremony, it was hard to choose. Secondly, the barn is gorgeous and practically stands on its own without much additional decorations - providing a great rain backup. Having access to the venue most of the day Friday and all day Saturday really gave us enough time to make the space our own and set up exactly how we wanted. Because our wedding was large and the weather was chilly, we rented a heated tent and stood it up right next to the barn doors to create more space for guests and caterers. On Sunday we were able to host a brunch back and the barn and clean up. The ability to buy our own alcohol (you still need to have legal bartenders) saved us a lot of money. Also, they have a great list of caterers and rental companies that can help with providing everything you need. And lastly, the caretaker is so wonderful to work with - both before and during the event, he is warm, inviting, communicative, and responsive. Having him there to answer questions and help out with the space really helped make the weekend easier. He was even able to make friends with some of the guests. It's really a great venue - not too far from DC / Dulles, a very fair price, beautiful, in a great small town. We would definitely get married there again (though hopefully won't have to).Sent on 12/09/2019

Easy and stress free
We (and our guests) can’t say enough great things about this venue. The setting was beautiful and well maintained and Carolyn and Anthony were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were both very responsive and flexible which helped make a stressful time much more enjoyable! You also can’t beat the price. Because we had it for the entire weekend, we were able to have the rehearsal dinner there and didn’t have to worry about clean up the night after the wedding. We were able to fully enjoy the entire night and had plenty of time to clean up the next day! If you are looking for a beautiful venue for a great price, we highly recommend wild goose farm!!Sent on 09/06/2019
