Breathtaking and perfect in every way!
We fell in love with Locke Falls Farm the instant we got out of our car. The ride there was so tranquil and beautiful, but was nothing compared to the gorgeous property Debra and Chris have created in Locke Falls. We booked the venue 2 years before our date, and we watched the property evolve into every bride's dream. Every single detail - even the little ones - show their passion to truly create a magical, special place for each and every couple. Debra was so helpful during every visit, and patient with my barrage of emails throughout the planning process. When an unexpected pandemic threatened to take over our day, Debra remained in constant contact with me, helping me work through every government mandate and tweak all the details so we could still have the day we dreamed of. And there isn't ENOUGH that can be said about the day-of services provided by Debra, Chris, and their assistant. From working with us the day before to make sure everyone knew where to go and where to stand, to bringing in an extra reception table at the last minute - I knew we were in good hands and could truly enjoy our day. I couldn't be happier with our choice to have our wedding at Locke Falls Farm!Sent on 09/22/2020
Locke Falls Farm's reply:Thanks for being part of the magic Michelle! So happy we could help bring your dream to life. Congratulation!!

We haven't gotten married yet and Debra has been nothing but amazing! Being the "planner" type, I have a lot of silly questions that she's always willing to help find answers to. She's recommended so many great vendors and other details to make our wedding weekend that much more special! I canNOT wait for our time there this upcoming summer!Sent on 09/17/2019
Locke Falls Farm's reply:You're incredible!!! And thank you! No questions is silly, it's a lot of logistics and I love the opportunity to help couples dreams come to reality. Can't wait for your special day!

The most idyllic wedding venue run by the BEST people
There truly isn't enough I could say to express how grateful we are that we found Locke Falls Farm and got to work with Debra to create our perfect wedding weekend. We stayed from Thurs - Sun to have more time with our out of town guests and to prepare for the big day. Our bridal party and dates stayed with us in the main house while our groomsmen and dates stayed in the lofts above the barn, which were newly built after we booked. It was the perfect environment to have an intimate weekend with all of our favorite people staying right on the property. Even with 22+ guests, everyone was very comfortable with plenty of towels, extra bathrooms and both indoor and outdoor showers, and drawers full of extra linens and blankets.Sent on 09/07/2019
The farm is naturally beautiful: a gorgeous mountain view, fresh flowers and herbs covering the entire property, the beautiful old barn, the picturesque patio, a hammock strung between trees, lovely farm tables...it really looks like something out of a fairytale. All of our guests were raving all night and screaming, "HOW DID YOU FIND THIS PLACE?!"
The farm aside, Debra is genuinely the kindest and most attentive professional I've ever worked with (in any industry). She was always responsive to all of our questions, and really went above and beyond to help make our entire weekend perfect. And I DO mean that. She didn't just host us--she helped us order ice, offered to pick up the coffee for our morning after breakfast, gave us vendor recommendations, handled communication with vendors, provided us with software to map out our seating arrangements, helped with cleanup, led our rehearsal, picked up a pizza order we placed for late night food at the end of the wedding, etc. She completely tended to our every need throughout the entire process and the whole weekend.
We know that an experience like this isn't usual, and we felt the love and care that she puts into the property so deeply. Locke Falls Farm is the first venue we looked at and we are both so thankful that we went with our gut and booked it. We were so sad to leave after the cars were packed and we hope that someday we can come back to stay again.
If you are looking for a unique and gorgeous place to get married, don't bother looking anywhere else.

Perfect Spot for Outdoor Wedding
My daughter was just married at Locke Falls and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Debra went above and beyond all expectations to be accomodating and helpful--even cutting flowers from her own garden to replace some that had wilted in the sun!!! The grounds were gorgeous with stunning flower beds and the house is both beautiful and comfortable. We wound up having a very casual cookout for our rehearsal dinner and it was wonderful to have a professional kitchen to work in! The house, the barn and the pavillion are each lovely, but Debra is what makes it such a fabulous place!Sent on 08/07/2019
Locke Falls Farm's reply:Thank you Jill. It's truly rewarding to share the beauty of the property ... and personally, I love helping to relieve those last-minute stresses. It's an important milestone in a mother's life too ;-) I hope you're still basking in the glory of the day.

Debra and Locke Falls Farm Helped Us Have the Best Day Wedding Day!!
My husband and I just got married at Locke Falls Farm and have nothing but absolutely positive things to say about this amazing venue!! Debra went above and beyond for our big day and helped make sure that everything went smoothly. The property is absolutely gorgeous and when you add to that Debra's knowledge and assistance, you just can't beat it. We were able to use the venue for the entire weekend, making our wedding feel like a mini family reunion. Thank you so much Debra, we could not have had the absolutely perfect day that we had without you and Locke Falls Farm!Sent on 08/19/2019
Locke Falls Farm's reply:My pleasure Emily! I enjoyed being part of your special day and working with you both, as well as, your family.

If you are looking for a wedding retreat, where you can not only have an exquisite wedding, but kick back and play lawn games with friends and family, this place is for you. My husband and I got married there in July 2019 and stayed at the property from Thursday to Sunday. Debra is the best coordinator! She is not only day of, but helped us out to pull together or whole wedding and a bunch of other vendors and her assistance is part of the package.
Our wedding guest commented "how did we find this place?" "Gardens are absolutely beautiful" "even the servers were having a good time and so friendly". We had the best experience and Debra is constantly working to improve the property. Over the last year she closed in the pavilion (important for weather!) And built additional bathrooms, outdoor showers, and an entire groomsmen bunk that sleeps 16 people. She wants to make this place the best experience for her brides and grooms and it does not disappoint. We wish we had a reason to go back!Sent on 07/29/2019

We fell in love with this venue last October and just recently got married here on July 13th. The venue was everything we wanted, the gardens were stunning, and Debra was simply the BEST to work with! All of our guests were in awe at how beautiful everything was. We stayed from Thursday - Sunday to make a full weekend out of it and we wouldn't change a thing. Debra is so passionate about the venue and continues to make gorgeous upgrades. I highly recommend Locke Falls Farm!! You and your guests will NOT be disappointed.Sent on 08/05/2019

A Little Slice of Heaven at Locke Falls Farm
My daughter Olivia and her husband Liam got married September 14, 2019 at this little slice of heaven called Locke Falls Farm. I am not sure where to even start about our magical experience. The owner, Debra was just as amazing as the property. We arrived on Thursday morning, both families and we all stayed in the main house which sleeps 18. It was great to spend this time all together to relax, enjoy and take in the beauty of the farm. Our first night we all went into the barn and enjoyed a few games of corn hole, a few drinks and we even danced a little. It was great to have the groomsmen stay over the barn where there are enough beds and rooms to sleep 16. On Friday the girls had a yoga session behind the barn among the beautiful flowers, fields and soft lush grass. We had the rehearsal dinner in the barn on Friday night which was amazing. On the morning of the wedding it had rained pretty hard and at the last minute the bride decided to hold the wedding in the barn. Debra and her crew set up the barn for the wedding which was so beautiful. The benches, lanterns, oriental rug and rose pedals were beautiful. It was such an intimate setting and the love in the barn was overwhelming. Most importantly, my daughter and her husband loved it. It had stopped misting out by the time the ceremony was over, so all the guests were able to enjoy the beautiful grounds. The reception in the new pavilion was beautiful. The mason jar chandeliers, the tables with all the flowers and candles were amazing. We danced and celebrated all night and were sad when it was over. As I stated Debra was amazing and enjoys what she does which clearly shows from the minute you pull up to the house. I cannot say enough about Locke Falls Farm. It truly is a little slice of heaven and you will forget everything going on in the outside world when you arrive. I highly recommend Locke Falls Farm!! Your guests will talk about this for years.Sent on 10/07/2019
Locke Falls Farm's reply:I loved meeting and working with all of you, Monique. It's a real privilege to have the opportunity to share the magic of the property with each couple's family and friends.

Locke Falls Farm was a Dream!
Locke Falls Farm was the PERFECT venue for our wedding day. The property is breathtakingly beautiful, the house is large enough to sleep 14-16 people, but also feels homey and cozy, the recent renovations to the house and property are gorgeous, and the actual wedding facilities are stunning. My husband and I were looking for a venue that would allow us to embrace the natural beauty of fall, to spend the weekend with our family and friends, and would provide us ample space to cook the rehearsal dinner and bake the pies that would be the wedding desserts. Locke Falls delivered on all fronts! Our wedding party, family, guests, and vendors could not stop raving about the beauty of the venue.Sent on 10/15/2018
Deb was also incredible throughout the entire planning process. She responded to all emails promptly, was available to answer any and all questions, was willing to help us manage the constant stream of questions/opinions coming from our families, provided recommendations for vendors, welcomed us to visit the property whenever we were in town (we were planning the wedding from NC), and greatly eased our minds and lowered our stress levels as the wedding day approached. Deb was willing to go above and beyond her responsibilities to help us in any way she could - and we greatly appreciated all of her help! She was a warm and kind presence throughout the entire process - we couldn't have asked for more!
Our wedding weekend ended up being everything we wanted - we left on Sunday filled with gratitude, and with an overwhelming feeling of love. We cannot recommend Locke Falls Farm enough.

Best weekend ever!
My husband and I got married at Locke Falls Farm on September 29th, 2018 and it couldn't have been a more perfect experience. Debra was so amazing to work with, so quick to respond to all of our questions leading up to the wedding and made sure everything was perfect for our special day. Our wedding party was able to stay at the venue for the weekend with us and we had such a great time. All of us got ready at the house and the new bridal suite is beautiful and perfect for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready while staying separate from the rest of the house. The house was clean and spacious, the barn and pavilion were perfect for our reception and we had our ceremony outside, over looking the beautiful property. It was picture perfect and we would recommend it to everyone. We absolutely loved it!Sent on 10/16/2018
Kaitlin · Married on 09/22/2018
We are still on a high from our celebration a couple weeks ago! The ceremony and reception was absolutely incredible. Locke Falls Farm is breathtaking. We wanted to feel like we were in our element (woods surrounded by nature), but have it accessible for our family to watch our ceremony. The white mountains are close to our heart and this was a great spot without having our guests drive too far north.
All of our guests mentioned how amazing the venue was. The wooden pavilion was great for dinner and dancing to the live band! In the barn we were able to personalize our decorations, set up appetizers, desserts, and the bar! I was able to create so many personalized crafts and signs to spread out around the venue to make it truly ours.
One of our top reasons for choosing this venue was having a house on site to have our bridal party and close family stay. Other guests utilized local Air B &B's. All who stayed in the house felt like home. So much love was shared!
Deb was wonderful to work with and was extremely helpful every step of the way. We are so thankful of her providing such a beautiful place for us to eat, drink, and celebrate our love with our family and friends!
If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor venue that you can truly make your own for a weekend Locke Falls Farm is the spot! Best day ever!Sent on 10/11/2018

Locke Falls Farm was THE PERFECT location for our wedding. Our special day was magical thanks to this beautiful venue and all the help and support from Debra. All of our guests raved about how spectacular everything was. It was everything I could have hoped for and more!Sent on 09/12/2018
Kara · Married on 09/01/2018
We absolutely cannot say enough wonderful things about Locke Falls Farm! We wanted something laid back and unique, and a wedding location that we could have for the whole weekend in order so spend as much time as possible with our guests. LFF was everything we could have hoped for - beautiful, convenient and allowed us to bring in vendors we were excited about for catering, DJ, etc. The bridal party stayed in the house all weekend, which was convenient and so much fun. We had our welcome party, post-wedding brunch and cocktail hour on the patio and in the barn, dinner and after party in the pavilion and dancing in the barn. It was perfect for our large wedding of 200+ - everyone felt a part of things but could also mingle all over the gorgeous property. Having Debra as our day-of coordinator was incredible, and she was available to us in the months and days leading up to the wedding and went so far above and beyond all weekend long. We had a horrible experience with one vendor and several things went wrong on the day of the wedding, but Debra handled all of it and we didn't have to worry about a thing. So many of our guests have said it was one of the best wedding venues they've ever been to and have already recommended LFF to others planning weddings. We're hoping to be back for a family holiday soon!!!Sent on 10/07/2018
Locke Falls Farm's reply:Thank you, Kara and Will for making the decision to host your special day at Locke Falls Farm, it truly was my pleasure to be part of your beautiful celebration!!

Debra was a wonderful host for us and our wedding at Locke Falls Farm. She was attentive to answering our questions and reassuring through the process. Her property is beautiful and the views of the white mountains in New Hampshire cannot be paralleled. Our wedding was beautiful and intimate at 80 guests and this property was a perfect selection for our location. By the end of the weekend, our wedding party was talking about celebrating our first anniversary by vacationing at Locke Falls Farm! Hopefully we will be returning soon to enjoy more of the farm and more of New Hampshire.Sent on 09/15/2017
Thank you again to Debra and her staff.

Kelly · Married on 07/29/2017
Locke Falls Farm was the perfect venue! We loved being able to stay on site and have our wedding in the yard. Locke Falls Farm isn't a wedding factory; Deb is great to work with and allows couples lots of flexibility and options to personalize their wedding! The rolling hills and view make for great scenery. The location is close enough to town to be accessible but not too close to be mainstream. Wish we could celebrate here all over again!Sent on 10/15/2017
Caeleigh · Married on 07/22/2017
Locke Falls Farm was the perfect place for our July wedding! We decided to rent the house for almost a whole week before the wedding which was a wonderful way to host friends and family throughout the week and thoroughly enjoy the place - and there is so much to enjoy - the gardens (and wonderful gardener who tends them), the trails in the back, the billiard room and SO much more . By the end of the week, Locke Falls Farm felt like home to everyone and nobody wanted to leave!Sent on 07/24/2017
Our wedding was very much a DIY kind of event - we even catered it ourselves with lots of help from friends and family. The house and barn were perfectly set up for cooking up dinner for 130 guests with plenty of oven, freezer and fridge space. Having the place for several days before the wedding allowed us plenty of time to balance work with relaxing and enjoying such a beautiful setting. Our event included a day of wedding coodinator, Sheena Harte of Showcase Events, who was THE BEST and we can't imagine what we would have done without her. She is very familiar with the farm and knows exactly how to make your vision for your wedding happen while always respecting your budget.
Bottom line: Locke Falls Farm is wonderful. It's the kind of venue where you can have ample time to feel a sense of connection with the place which made our experience so so special. There are other farm venues out there that provide so little that you have to bring in everything and others that are so structured that you end up with a cookie cutter wedding. Debra (the owner) provides just enough to ensure that you don't have to reinvent the venue for your wedding and, if you want them, has the best recommendations ready to make your wedding exactly how you want it to be.
Thanks for being the perfect venue!
- Zach and Caeleigh
Locke Falls Farm's reply:Thank you so much Caeleigh and Zach. It truly is my pleasure to share the property with couples, their families and guests. I love that you made it your own and took the extra time to really enjoy the property and all it has to offer. My best wishes to you both!

We had an incredible wedding weekend from start to finish at Locke Falls Farm. The farm conveys a perfect sense of rustic elegance and we couldn’t have picked a better place to wed. Debbie, the owner, is truly passionate about making your experience one to remember. She is incredibly kind, thorough, detail-oriented, and quick to respond to your questions and requests. It brought us comfort and assurance knowing that we were always being taken care of. She is full of great suggestions for just about every detail that goes into planning your wedding as well. The location of the farm is very accessible and has more than enough parking for all of your guests. The grounds are immaculately kept and the panoramic views of the White Mountains “wowed” everyone in attendance. The rolling fields overlooking the horizon made for an incredible backdrop for many of our pictures. The property is incredibly versatile, and can easily be used it to its entirety. We chose to have our cocktail hour in the picture-perfect barn, our ceremony on the grass field that runs parallel to the back of the home, and our reception in the upper field under a tent lined with chandeliers and market lights. It was truly magical. The home that is on the property was occupied by ourselves and our party for the entire weekend. There were around twenty of us that comfortably slept there, which gave our weekend the feeling of a mini-vacation destination celebration that lasted much longer than the wedding night. The ladies were upstairs and the men were downstairs, and both had ample space to prepare for the big day. Everything went so smoothly and brought smiles to our face in every moment. We cannot thank Debbie enough for providing us with so much more than we could have asked for, and memories that will last a lifetime. If you are looking for a wedding destination that will surely bring you joy, beauty, elegance, and love on your big day, look no further than Locke Falls Farm!Sent on 09/09/2017

We are so happy that we found Locke Falls Farm! It was the absolute perfect place for our wedding and it allowed us to share with our friends and family a picturesque New Hampshire experience. We wanted to get married in a place we could have out of town family stay, relax and enjoy themselves and this provided that and so much more! Locke Falls is extremely beautiful and Debra Franchi, the owner, clearly has put her heart into it from the details of the barn to the tiles in the bathrooms. Comfortable, peaceful and accommodating it was incredible. All of our guests loved it and had a great time- we didn't want to leave! We look forward to visiting again and highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants an unforgettable ceremony! - Cheryl and WayneSent on 11/05/2016
Locke Falls Farm's reply:Thank you Cheryl and Wayne for choosing Locke Falls Farm to celebrate your special day - and also for sharing your photos with us. Your expressions encapsulate the experience we attempted to create for our guests. It's incredibly rewarding to witness the impression being there has made on your lives and your ceremony.
