    Gorgeous farm & wonderful owners!

    The Gardens at Bethlehem Farm is a magical place! We found them on Wedding Wire and were the first place we contacted about going to see as a possible wedding venue and the place stole our hearts. We never even wanted to look anywhere else because this farm felt like a perfect fit even from the very beginning and we pretty much decided then and there that it would be out spot. The owners are so sweet and made it feel like family to be on their farm with them. The bridal suite is gorgeous and all the ceremony/reception areas are equally as amazing. A wedding planner (Affairs Extraordinaire by Marta) was included with our package which was a saving grace we didn't even know we needed, but the wedding day went by flawlessly! I really can't say enough great things about this place! Go check it out!!

    First Impression

    I went for a tour and fell in love with the venue, I met with property owner and she was very down to earth kind understanding. she explained everything in detail so I can understand as a first time bride and never have experienced wedding planing she settled my mind a lot.

    AMAZING barn venue!

    We got married on May 7, 2021 and could not have asked for a better venue! This place is absolutely beautiful and perfect! The multiple areas for a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one place is so convenient. The owners are great people, as well as our wedding planner! There was absolutely no stress on my end as a bride that day!

    If we could repeat our day over again at this venue, we absolutely would!❤️

    Absolutely wonderful

    The gardens at Bethlehem farm was my dream venue. They were the most kind helpful people. They not only helped me with everything I needed but even allowed me to change my date a few months before the wedding because of family circumstances. They provided Marta Kastner as my wedding planner and she was awesome. Above and beyond doesn’t begin to explain everything she did for us. She took care of our decorations and everything we wanted. She ran our rehearsal dinner and helped me with so much extra stuff. They made the most important day of my life an absolute dream.

    Best venue EVER!!!

    Honestly, we could not have picked a more perfect venue for our 9/20/2020 wedding! From our first steps into the barn, we knew that’s where our wedding would be. The owners are the most thoughtful and kind people to work with. They genuinely love sharing their property with couples and it really shows! Many of our guests repeatedly told us it was the most beautiful venue they’d been to. From the upper barn, to the cocktail area, to the lower barn and all the beautiful scenery outside - you really can’t beat it! Highly HIGHLY recommend this venue!!!

    Linda & Lauren are amazing!! My family came from ny and wanted to see the venue. Linda welcomed us into her home with open arms and she treated us like we knew her for years. Her and Lauren actually communicate which has been rare with other venues since we started our search. I cant wait to get married here in 5/2020.

    Gorgeous venue with incredible hospitality

    TGBF treated my husband and I like royalty! Linda (the owner) was amazing and helped our dream barn/rustic wedding become a reality. Her venue is impeccable! The customer service from Linda and her family/team made us feel right at home which helped us enjoy our day even more than expected! You will not be disappointed if you have your wedding here. The bridal suite is perfect for photos and decorated beautifully. Everyone loved the venue! A true hidden gem!

    Warm, Inviting, and Professional

    Planning and actual wedding day experience for our daughter's wedding with Tim and Linda was amazing! They are so professional in what they do, yet down to earth with helpful suggestions and attentiveness to us. They worked with our last minute heating issues (it was a cool October evening) and let our decorators do an amazing job of adding special touches! Our wedding pictures are beautiful thanks to the beautiful bridal suite and outside areas and of course the barn and reception area were amazing. Can't say enough good things - they genuinely cared about us and how important this day was to us! Special people - you can tell they love what they do and want each bride and groom to feel special!

    Spectacular!

    This was the absolute perfect venue for us! The owners are incredible people and do such an amazing job working with you on what you want and need. We booked way back in Nov. 2017 and had the pleasure of watching the renovation of this venue. I know they still have plans to continue to add to their dream but I couldn’t have been more thrilled come the day of our wedding this past September. Everything was so beautiful and truly magical. Linda is a goddess of the gardens! I don’t have one negative comment for this place. They made our wedding a dream come true!

    Best day ever!

    The Gardens of Bethlehem farm and Tim& Linda Pierce are phenomenal-!! They are the nicest, most accommodating people who’s hearts are as big and beautiful as their property. From the first time I met them with my son and now daughter-in-law I KNEW it was going to be the best day ever. The attention to detail is bar none and there was no wondering ‘ what if’s’ the day of my sons wedding. Every one of the guests commented on the pristine grounds and the details that showed in everything the Pierces have lovingly put into the barn. We cannot thank them enough for making us feel like part of the family that day and ensuring everything was as it should be. Thank you so much!! Forever grateful, Michelle & Doug Keenen

    We fell in love with this venue before the barn had ever been renovated. We were planning on our reception being in a tent on the grass. When we met the owner Linda, we immediately loved her and spent several hours in her kitchen. By the end of the evening, we were crying and hugging (yes, seriously, this happened). Our vision was to have our ceremony under a willow tree with hanging lanterns, and let me tell you--this venue does not disappoint. From the amazing gardens with >6 foot tall lilies, to the newly-renovated lower barn with twinkle lights and a beautiful bar area, to the breathtaking views from the renovated upper barn, to the incredibly elegant and girly bridal suite upstairs and immaculate groom's suite downstairs, this venue has **everything**. Our guests are raving about how unique and beautiful the venue was. But the real starsof the show are Linda and her family. They were wonderful to work with and communicated with us nonstop, even when we moved out of state --and I was panicking that the wedding would never come together. They took care of everything and made the day magical. My maid of honor even had a major wardrobe malfunction, and Linda fixed it herself!! I cannot express our gratitude to Linda and her family for the wedding of our dreams. Please do not hesitate to set up a meeting with her and to see this venue. They are only improving by the day, even though the place was magical over a year ago before the major renovations. Thank you again, Linda and family, from the bottom of our hearts.

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    The Gardens at Bethlehem's was the perfect place for a wedding. The facility had everything you could possibly want or need.
