Our dream wedding!
When COVID caused our wedding plans to be derailed for the second time, we decided to shorten our guest list from 100 to 15.Sent on 09/10/2020
Next, we needed a venue that would accommodate a more intimate celebration and could manage to host everything outside.
Zingerman's Cornman Farms was truly the answer to our prayers!
They brought light, joy, and excitement back to wedding planning when COVID had caused us so much stress and many tears.
The team could not be more responsive, accommodating, or professional. Plus, with many vendors being offered in-house, planning was even easier.
Now that our wedding has happened, my husband and I both agreed, this is how we would have planned our wedding all along had we known what a wonderfully special, meaningful, and romantic experience the entire day would be.
Whether you're a couple that had to change plans because of COVID or a couple who wants a truly meaningful wedding that's focused more on your love than anything else, I'd recommend Zingerman Cornman Farms.

Truly, could not ask for a better venue.
Like many, we had to change our wedding plans due to COVID-19 and decided on an elopement wedding at Cornman's Farms. The entire team, especially our main contact, Olivia, were amazing to work with from start to finish, which was also great given our quick planning timeline of about five weeks. They worked with us through every aspect and made it the most seamless day possible. The space was amazing - I cannot tell you how many compliments we got from those in attendance about the farmhouse and surrounding scenery. The team at Cornman really worked with us to make the day about us and our story, while still making sure to keep our guests happy and entertained.Sent on 08/28/2020
How could I leave a review without talking about the food?! We had the most amazing four course meal led by chef Kieron that I'm pretty sure I will tell people about until I die.
We could not recommend Cornman Farms enough.

Nothing short of an absolute dream
I'm finding it hard to summarize my experience with Zingerman's Cornman Farms into a simple, short review because of the amount of work and tireless effort that was put into my experience here. Tabitha, Kieron, Olivia, Kirsten, Rachel, and the rest of the team at Cornman Farms put absolutely everything they could into helping me plan my July 31, 2020 wedding on the farm. For the past 10 months, I have been working closely with the staff here to execute our outdoor, 85 person wedding and it has been nothing short of one of the best experiences I have ever been a part of. Zingerman's Cornman Farms is the most charming and beautiful property with so much to offer couples who choose to get married at the venue. From the beginning, our expectations were met with top-notch customer service and all-inclusive experience. I wanted to book this venue for my wedding since I came across it on a google search, but after seeing the property, the 1800s farmhouse, barn, lush fields and gardens, we were absolutely sure we weren't going to explore any other options. In the middle of our wedding planning, we were thrown a global pandemic which posed a huge problem for gathering. Tabitha and the Cornman Farms team were so gracious and prompt in replying to emails, messages, zoom calls, etc. during the entire shut down and included such an empathetic, supportive tone. We knew from the beginning of the shutdown that we were going to get married on our wedding day no matter the circumstances, but we were a million times thankful that Cornman Farms chose to stick with us and do everything in their power to host our event on their property with accommodations and safety measures in place. On the actual day of our wedding, we were greeted by several people to help, including a concierge, and farm production and execution staff. Each moment of our day was orchestrated perfectly and it is because of all the work the Cornman Farms staff does (especially behind the scenes). Our wedding looked a bit different than a traditional wedding because of the circumstances, but Cornman Farms put every effort into making it perfect that we wouldn't have changed a thing even if we could have. Our day was a beautiful, sunny, 80 degrees and ended with the most picturesque watercolor sunset. We still can't believe everything happened, and that it was real. Our guests raved about every detail and we think about our wedding every single day. Zingerman's will always have our business, we will always be thankful to Cornman Farms and the people there, and we cannot wait to come back to the property for events and anniversaries in the future. Thank you Cornman Farms for playing such a huge role in our love story!Sent on 08/11/2020
We LOVE Zingerman's Cornman Farms. The team is a dream + honor to work with. Every client I bring to the farm is blown away from the customized hospitality to the amazing property. Truly a GEM!
