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.

I loved that it was DIY. We had plenty of time to decorate. Our guests raved about the venue. It rained the day of the wedding but the photos still turned out wonderful and the barn was heated to a nice cozy temperature. Carolyn and Tony were wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend the venue!Sent on 12/05/2018

Wild Goose Farms was the perfect venue for our wedding! The owner, Carolyn, was very responsive and helped us coordinate everything leading up to the weekend! The onsite groundskeeper, Anthony, was so helpful from the moment we arrived on Friday afternoon to the time we left on Sunday. He helped us accommodate last minute changes due to the rain and was there to jump in with extra materials we needed last minute. The barn is beautiful with the lights and the venue provided us with amazing pictures. We loved everything about Wild Goose Farm and our weekend there!Sent on 11/25/2018
