    the most magical experience possible

    Hartley's owners and staff were a dream to work with! they were extremely responsive and very helpful. Not only does the venue speak for itself but the client service is the best!

    Hidden Forest

    I cant even begin to describe what a magical venue this is! From the moment we started looking at venues I knew that we didn't want just any old ballroom or cookie cutter wedding but an experience of all the things we loved like hiking, trees and nature. We meet Barbara (the owner) right at the entrance of a beautiful walkway surrounded by trees and adorable hearts and leaves engraved right in the cement. We walked directly to the ceremony site which was something out of a fairy book, an amazingly grand 200yr old oak tree stood out front and center of the aisle. As I mentioned the entire place is covered in trees and since we had a fall wedding all the autumn colors were out to play. We then walked over to the cocktail reception were we saw the famous 'walk of fame' of all the past wedding that have took place at this special venue so much love.
    The cocktail area is right in the middle surrounded with benched trees a small orchard and a beautiful water tower. The entire venue is in a horseshoe style form so you begin with the ceremony site make your way to the cocktail area and then horseshoe back around to the reception area where you are meet with an amazing looking bar made from a silo, so cute and original never seen anything like that before. The entire reception area is on a green lawn with a cemented dance floor right in the middle, hearts and leaves engraved there too!
    Not to mention the entire reception area is covered in string lights which gives it such a romantic feel there is no need for up lighting or anything else. The day of our wedding was truly magical all my DIY projects came together although the venue really does not need much to make it stand out , the weather was perfect considering it was October and the fire pit was a perfect touch for our guests to roast their s'mores by the fire (our wedding was camping themed) . All of our guests kept gushing about how beautiful the venue was and kept asking us how we were able to locate such a beautiful place we really couldn't have imagined a more perfect venue or day

    Wedding at Heartly Farms

    The owners at heartly farms made this day very special.
    They were there when we needed something.

    They are very friendly.
    The work they have done to their venue is absolutely amazing.

    I highly recommend this venue.

    Thank you

    Unforgettable!

    Barbara and her family were amazing and so accommodating. They went above and beyond to ensure every detail was perfect- before, during, and after the wedding. And so many diverse places to take photos!! Words cannot begin express my gratitude

    When my husband and I started looking for wedding venues I was 4 months pregnant and feeling very overwhelmed. I came across Hartley Farms on a few different searches, it was the perfect mix of rustic and garden that we wanted. We booked the tour and went for a road trip. When we drove into the venue I was taken back by the beauty. I knew almost instantly that it was the place and before we even made it onto the freeway entrance on the way home we both agreed that was the location. Shortly after we got home we emailed Barbara and locked in a date, everything from that moment on was smooth sailing. Every recommendation she gave us was spot on and each vendor delivered 100%. The pictures of the venue are beautiful but to truly see the beauty of this venue you need to come in person and experience it! My husband and I will be booking the B&B for our one year just to come back! :)

    We're so glad that we found Hartley Farms for our wedding venue! It's a beautiful outdoor space with a layout specifically designed for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The owner, Barbara, and her family, are incredibly flexible and laid back, which is perfect when that wedding planning stress kicks in. Thanks so much, Barbara!

    I fell in love with Hartley Farms the moment I saw it. I knew immediately that this was the venue for me. I wanted an outdoor semi destination wedding (I'm from LA) that offered flexibility and has bistro lighting. HF allows you to use the vendors of your choice, BYOB, and is amazingly beautiful. Sure some may think it's more work to have to bring in all of your vendors but trust me...it was worth it! All of our guests kept complimenting on how unique the venue is and how beautiful it was. The venue is full of pretty picture spots from waterfalls to apples orchards to beautiful woodsy trees. You're also allowed to get there on Friday to set up and come back on Sunday to clean up! The wonderful owner, Barbara, was also so helpful and patient throughout the whole planning process. She was always quick with her replies to my many emails. Once you decide on HF, you immediately become family to them! Thank you Barbara for making my dream wedding happen! We will be sure to come back to visit!

    Barbara and Dan are amazing people to work with! Couldn't have asked for a better location to start the rest of our lives together as Mr and Mrs Gates :)

    We got married at Hartley Farms a few weeks ago and it was absolutely beautiful! Barbara was wonderful to work with, and we couldn't have asked for a more lovely place to get married. The ceremony site is under an old oak tree with a paved aisle and amphitheater-style seating. Then, guests walk along a meandering path through a thick forest of shady, green trees which opens up on a huge lawn with a built-in dance floor for the reception. The dance floor and lighting was a nice bonus, as it saves money on rentals! They also have a bar on site, as well as wine barrels that can be used during cocktail hour, or whatever. I believe it may have changed now to be more of an all-inclusive type venue, but at the time we rented, it was fairly bare bones. We paid a flat rate for the venue itself, then had to rent everything else - bathrooms, tent, tables/chairs/linens, catering/service, dessert table, etc. (They actually DID offer rentals and such for an additional price, but we decided to find our own). We liked this, though, as it allowed us to customize our wedding and bring in whatever food, drink, etc. we wanted.

    Working with Barbara was great - she was very responsive to my (million and one) questions, and helpful in getting us connected with vendors in the area. We also rented the little house on the property for the night of the wedding which was great - we didn't have to worry about driving anywhere/getting a car, and we were able to have a small after-party at the house with the bridal party/parents. We also had some friends take advantage of the camping on-site which was really fun!

    Our price included exclusive use the day of the wedding, plus one hour of exclusive use beforehand for the rehearsal. We were also able to come out early and set up/bring decorations the night before, which was very helpful! Another fun bonus - every couple that gets married there gets to make a custom cement stepping stone!
