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!
