Our Wedding 10-10-2020
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Planning a wedding during a global pandemic was stressful to say the least, there were so many things we had to change or scrap completely but throughout the entire process Bri and Curt were communicative about what was going on, and what was projected to happen and helped walk us through every step of this very scary planning process.Sent on 10/19/2020
It is a truly rare gift to encounter such wonderful, family friendly people. We felt taken care of the entire time and any concerns we had were always wiped away quickly as soon as we talked to them.
We got married on October 10 and truly it was the best day of my life. I was able to fully relax knowing I was in the hands of people who cared about seeing our vision for our wedding come into reality. I cannot more highly recommend this venue, as well as Mark and Patrick wth Upbeat DJ. Between the food, the music and the atmosphere (I mean, have you seen that view?) I had guests coming up to me all night saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to and so much of that were these amazing people.
Wrights Mill Farm's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words. It was an absolute pleasure working with you guys on the big day.

We got married at weights mill 7/4/21 and the entire experience was amazing. We have so many guests tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The food, staff, drinks and venue were amazing. Curt and Bri are true professionals in making your day perfection. They even solved a mini emergency when the mother of the groom spilled food on her dress before the ceremony! Truly amazing!Sent on 07/14/2021

Best wedding experience!
I CANNOT stress enough how much Wright’s Mill and their team were the perfect wedding venue for my husband and I. From understanding all our wants and needs to coordinating specific details that we wanted. And don’t get me started on Upbeat DJ… Pat and Mark were AMAZING! They are the life of the party and catered to all our requests whether it be to songs or just being there for my groom and I. Along with the wait staff… the ABSOLUTE best. My husband and I were catered to and they made sure we were doing good the whole wedding. Also, the Chocolate Rose Bakeshop was amazing! Our cake vision came to life and it tasted amazing. 20 out of 10 experience, Curt and Brie were so helpful throughout the process since we had to reschedule twice due to covid. I wouldn’t change this experience and this was the best night of my husband and I’s lives. We will be recommending this wedding venue for the rest of our lives and probably attending events in the future. Thank you so so much Wright’s Mill Farm and their team!!! ❤️Sent on 07/14/2021
The feeling is mutual! It's always a great experience teaming up with the Wright's Mill staff. Beautiful venue as well.
Wright's Mill, WMF, the unstoppable crew up in Canterbury....I could go on & on about how wonderful the owners & staff are. Whether they are the main family running the venue, or the rest of the group working for them, you'll never feel anything short of welcome there. They go above and beyond for their couples & the energy is contagious. I'm lucky to have become a part of their "farmily" and cannot recommend them enough.
Wright's Mill Farm is one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. The staff is professional, reliable and outstanding at making the day run smoothly. Wright's Mill has beautiful scenic backdrops including rustic barns and a covered bridge. I cannot speak highly enough of Wright's Mill and everyone there. Highly recommended!
