    A cozy wedding venue

    We had our wedding in November '21 on a cold, windy day. Chiara--who is one of the sweetest and most thoughtful women I have ever met--did everything possible to ensure our guests stayed warm and comfortable. Chiara and her team set up heaters in the barn, handed out blankets to guests, and kept the fire pits going all evening. The result was a cozy wedding in a spectacularly beautiful place. The natural beauty of the farm provided so many photo opportunities! While planning, I didn't even have to think about too many decorations because the venue was already Picture Perfect. I cannot recommend Windy Hill Farm enough! Chiara truly loves what she does and cared so much about helping us have the best wedding possible.

    Thank you windy hill!

    We are so happy we chose Windy Hill for host our wedding! The property is absolutely enchanting, we fell in love on our first visit. It was the first and only venue we toured and we knew right then and there it was the one.

    Chiara took amazing care of us and we cannot thank her enough for her hospitality and kindness during the planning process.
    We ended up having to postpone our wedding due to the COVID-19 surges last fall and windy hill was incredibly understanding and patient.
    1 month before our original wedding date was going to pass, Chiara reached out to us and offered the farm to us and our immediate family to have a small ceremony on our original wedding date at no additional charge. We were stunned by this incredibly kind gesture and gladly accepted. Windy Hill allowed us to have two weddings for the price of one during one of the scariest and hardest times we have lived through together.

    1 Year later, we finally were able to have our big ceremony! We had quite a few bumps in the road including my now husband breaking his leg 1 month before the wedding. Chiara made sure he was comfortable during the day by using the golf cart to help transport him where he needed to go and it all went wonderfully. We stayed in the honeymoon suite that night which was so charming and lovely. Chiara made us the most delicious breakfast that next morning and took great care of us. Frittata, bacon, sourdough, fruit, and coffee...yum. An excellent end to a beautiful weekend!

    Chiara is truly one of the kindest souls we've ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with and we HIGHLY recommend Windy Hill to any couples out there who want an outdoor wedding.

    Thank you Chiara and the Windy Hill family!!!

    A Perfect Day

    I don't have adequate words to describe how incredible our experience with Windy Hill Farm was. I toured just one venue, and the minute I set foot on this property I knew it was the place (you could say it was "love at first sight" :)). We rescheduled our wedding due to the pandemic and the grace, kindness, and compassion that Chiara showed us significantly eased the stress of our decision. The new date we landed on (after much debate, which Chiara patiently talked us through) ended up being perfect. It rained a bit on our wedding date (thankfully held off for the ceremony) and it did not dampen our spirits one bit; in fact, it added to the gorgeous atmosphere. Chiara, Russ, and the rest of the team were incredibly thoughtful, hard-working, and almost prescient in their ability to help facilitate our event. The farm is absolutely gorgeous, including the suite for getting ready. The Windy Hill Farm stewards accommodated all of our requests and appeared unflappable in doing so. The barn is a cozy and gorgeous space for a party, and their dance floor is perfect. The upstairs bar area looks out over the pasture and provides a peaceful and beautiful retreat if a break is needed. And we had a wonderful firepit - I completely forgot that we were even going to have one but they didn't! It was such a delightful surprise to walk over and see the beautiful campfire with our loved ones sitting around it. I'm sure I'm leaving something out because our gratitude and enthusiasm for this spot is endless. Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the GOATS. There were also two-day-old calves present on our day, and a cow that "laughed" at the best man's toast which provided the perfect levity. Needless to say, I HIGHLY recommend booking your "love celebration" (as we called it) here.

Wide open spaces and cuddly animals! Windy Hill Farm is a beautiful venue with just the right amount of onlooking goats. If you're looking for an outdoor venue, you've got to stop by and take a look. And pet some animals while you're there.
