    Phenomenal Venue

    While the venue is obviously stunning, the team at Cornman Farms is what made our wedding an unforgettable day. From our first onsite visit to leaving the Farm at midnight on our wedding day, Kieron, Tabitha, Maya, Olivia and everyone else made sure we were taken care of, whether it was bringing us coffee, holding umbrellas over my husband and me during a downpour so we wouldn't get drenched while walking from the barn to our reception, or driving me around the property while we were taking photos so I could rest my feet all with a huge smile on their faces. The team is extremely responsive from the minute you book the venue (and continues even after the wedding is over!) and it really put me at ease during the planning process. The set up of the farm provides for a very unique and gorgeous event and we lost count of how many of our guests commented on how amazing the venue was. We cannot thank the Cornman team enough for all of their hard work, kindness and thoughtfulness to ensure we had the absolute best time on our wedding day.

    Fantasy wedding venue

    From day one, Maya and her team were a dream to work with! I can't say enough about how amazing Cornman Farms is for a wedding venue - the staff covers ever detail, ensures that the big day flows with ease, and guides you every step of the planning process. No matter how many emails I sent, Maya and the rest of the staff were so responsive, patient, and friendly with every request and question I had. On the day-of, everything went off so smoothly, professionally, and with such elegance. I can't tell you how many compliments I received on the spaces (from the barn ceremony to the tent to the grounds) to the goats visiting during cocktail hour to the cake & food. If Dave & I were to get married again, we wouldn't change a single thing about our experience with Cornman!
