    Couldn't Recommend It Enough!

    We can't say enough good things about our experience working with Wright's Mill Farm! We absolutely fell in love with the venue the moment we arrived and loved the flexibility of the different meal packages, etc. The staff was fantastic - always answering emails quickly and with the utmost professionalism, and showing almost as much excitement about our big day as we were! We can't recommend Wright's Mill Farm enough for any couples in search of the perfect venue with a beautiful mix of rustic elegance and beauty!

    Exceeded our wildest dreams!

    We cannot say enough amazing things about Wrights Mill Farm! When we first visited Wrights we knew it was the place that we had to get married. The grounds are astonishing - rustic, yet modern and updated reception areas along with cascading waterfalls and rock walls, horse drawn carriage rides - Wrights Mill Farm is truly the backdrop to the fairy tale we had been envisioning. Before we even left the grounds that day we secured our date and gave our deposit, and canceled all the other tours of venues we had that week.

    In the two years leading up to our wedding Brie and Curt were an amazing team - meeting with us, having phone calls and emails coordinating all the details. E-mails were literally answered in around 5 mins every single time I contacted them. They truly made the wedding planning process easy for us and we felt more then secure in our decision!

    Our wedding day truly exceeded even our wildest dreams. It was a real life fairy tale. They truly do it all - from the DJ (Upbeat DJ - also amazing!!), cake, food, bar, set up and breakdown of decorations, packaging our favors for us, coordinating our wedding party the day of (and we had a very large wedding party of 16 people plus family) Brie was always on top of it and everything was absolutely beautiful and delicious.

    We have attended many weddings over the years and we (as well as our guests) said that our wedding was the absolute best they had ever been to in all ways!

    We highly recommend Wrights Mill Farm for your fairy tale

    Wrights Mill Farm's reply:

    Thank You so mush Jess It was a pleasure working with you guys and you made our job easy. Hope to see you again some day.

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!
