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.

Facilities and Capacity

WGF Events, LLC, can accommodate up to 200 guests throughout their two events spaces. This historic venue has a beautiful collection of buildings, including a stone smoke/meat house, a Greek Revival-inspired springhouse, a wooden chicken coop, and a brick ice shed. They’re all connected with a network of roadways and stone walls.

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 upper level has a soaring beam structure full of natural lighting and can be arranged to accommodate a variety of layouts, like guest seating, dancing, and live music. Four large HVAC units are hidden in large woodens bins to preserve the rustic feel of the space, and there are two rooms for the wedding party to prepare in. One of them features wooden screens, antique furniture, and full-length mirrors. The lower level of the barn features newly painted walls, fixtures, floral displays, and furniture that resembles the uniqueness of New Orleans.

Services Offered

WGF Events, LLC, is wheelchair accessible and has ample parking for you and your guests. WGF is able to provide couples space for bridal showers, ceremonies, engagement parties, and receptions. Event services include a bridal suite, clean-up, event rentals, in-house catering, outside vendors, set-up, and wireless internet. Couples have the option to rent altars, arches, chairs, furniture, and tables for their event.

Perfect for a couple wanting a DIY Wedding

We had such an incredible wedding at Wild Goose Farm! The owners were extremely easy to work with and communicate with. They were adaptable and flexible and extremely accommodating.

The venue really let us make our wedding into everything we wanted it to be. The venue is very DIY, so expect to put in a lot of work to get it ready for your wedding. For us, that was exactly what we wanted. I feel like that made our event so special and unique. We received so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the venue and property are.

Something that is great about this venue is being able to have the venue Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We set up on Friday and had a Welcome Party that evening. We were there all day Saturday for the ceremony and reception. And then had stress-free pack up on Sunday morning. Having the venue for the whole weekend helped us truly immerse ourselves in the celebrations.

One of the best assets is the ability to have lots of space, both inside and out. We would highly recommend Wild Goose Farm to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Jay and his team are the absolutely best and do whatever it takes to make your day perfect!

Love the Venue!

Just wanted to provide you on our prospective of our wedding this weekend. It was fabulous! The grounds are beautiful, the guests loved the atmosphere and the barn was so cool even with the temperature in the 90’s. And an added beauty was the horses next door. They loved having their pictures taken with the bride & groom and the family/guest.

Anthony is an asset to your property! Everyone who encountered Anthony and interacted with him was so impressed especially with his hospitality and stories about the Farm. He represents your venue with excellence! We enjoyed working with him!
