Wright's is the BEST!!!! Curt, Bri and Mark were amazing, any questions we had were answered right away, they made planning a wedding extremely easy!! The meetings we had leading up to the wedding made us feel so comfortable with the entire process, they really put out minds at ease and kept us well informed on everything. The food was unbelievably good (we are still getting people saying how awesome the food was!), the Pavilion was beautiful, the Ceremony site was gorgeous and the staff are fun and wonderful! We set up yard games and had a bonfire with a s'mores bar to keep our (non-dancing) guests entertained all night. Upbeat DJ (which I highly recommend) kept our dancers on the dance floor all night, Upbeat DJ was amazing! The day of the wedding was extremely organized and well planned out, we did not have to worry about a thing! The grounds for taking pictures are gorgeous and there are so many options to choose from, the covered bridge, the barn, the pond and the area around the ceremony site, you really can't go wrong with any of them! Having our wedding at Wright's was the best decision we made, it was exactly what we were looking for, rustic, laid-back, and fun! The day was perfect! If you are considering booking Wright's...stop considering and just do it! Thank you so much to everyone at Wright's Mill Farm for making our wedding everything we hoped it would be and it is because of all of you! We are forever grateful for giving us such a wonderful day!Sent on 11/01/2017

Our Son's Wedding
We had a wonderful experience at Wright's Mill Farm. The staff was very professional, on top of things, and helpful. We didn't have to do a thing except show up. They did the decorating and at the last minute we wanted to show a video at the wedding and they were so helpful with that. The DJ's were very knowledgeable and helpful with anything we wanted to do or play. Curt and Bri always got us answers to any questions we had in a timely manner. Very classy business that I would recommend to any wedding couple.Sent on 08/26/2019

How to marry off your daughter with minimal stress and maximum results
I’ve been in the business for years. Wright’s Mill staff executed a truly magical event with professional elegance and confidence. They made us feel at ease and handled all the details impeccably. The guests all gushed about the beautiful venue, great food and memorable experience. They made my job easy as FOB and my wife’s as MOB. Highly recommended and a great value for everything they did for us.Sent on 05/27/2019
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!
