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.

Absolutely Amazing Venue
When I first walked on the property of Wild Goose Farms, I knew that this was where I was getting married. There are so many spots to choose from for the ceremony. We were married in the courtyard, and it was BEAUTIFUL! The property has so many places for pictures, and the inside of the barn takes your breath away. The owners of Wild Goose Farm are very accommodating and sweet to work with! Anthony, the groundskeeper, is SO SO helpful! He is an amazing person to work with, and he will do anything to help you with everything you need. He made the whole wedding so much easier. We couldn’t have asked for a better, fairytale wedding. 💕Sent on 06/17/2019

Amazing DIY Venue
What a beautiful, wonderful wedding venue. My daughter's wedding was June 1, 2019 and she is a very simple person. Her only must haves were a barn and a pond. Wild Goose was the perfect fit. Anthony, the caretaker, was so wonderful and easy to work with. Since you rent it Friday - Sunday, it was so nice to setup on Friday, hold the rehearsal and dinner there, then go back and get ready for the big day Saturday morning. We shut down Saturday night and then went back on Sunday and cleaned up. It was a perfect weekend! Nothing but wonderful things to say about Wild Goose Farm. Loved it all!Sent on 06/12/2019
