    Fantastic for our casual celebration

    We had our wedding reception at Windy Hill Fall 2019 and it was absolutely beautiful. Our event was intimate and not very formal and the farm was perfect for our guests to be able to play lawn games and dance. They were able to accommodate the food truck and tap trailer we hired and worked really well with our other vendors. Chiara was incredibly helpful and made us feel special. We really appreciated the option to compost and our guests loved the goats!

    Beautiful, Rustic Wedding Venue

    Windy Hill Farm was such a lovely place to get married. The family who owns it is absolutely wonderful to work with -- they were really easy to communicate with, offered us extra opportunities to visit the site, and were constantly making upgrades to the space. Every touch is really thoughtful, and our guests really enjoyed themselves at the farm.

    The event barn is somehow both spacious and intimate, and was the perfect size for our wedding (about 95 people) dinner and dancing. We loved being able to have the ceremony outside nestled between the farmhouse and a giant old tree. Everyone enjoyed visiting with the goats, and the view from the barn at sunset was gorgeous. We stayed the night in the honeymoon suite in the farmhouse, and were treated to a delicious breakfast the next day.

    Love Chiara & Windy Hill Farm

    We are so thankful to have found Windy Hill Farm for our wedding ceremony & reception! Chiara made every venue visit and conversation so seamless for us. They were so accommodating with us wanting our husky part of our wedding day - it made our day even more special. The renovated bridal suite and grooms suite are so beautiful, y'all did an amazing job with creating those spaces! We loved everything about our wedding day at Windy Hill Farm!

    An absolute dream venue! The space and the people are wonderful

    Windy Hill Farm is an absolute dream venue! Everything about the space is wonderful- from the awesome reception area to the various ceremony spot options to the bridal suite/honeymoon suite! They had just renovated that space by the time our wedding rolled around, and it is amazing! Plenty of room for all 8 of my bridesmaids and me to hang out in and get ready in before the event (and the room downstairs was perfect for groomsmen, too!).

    Everything about this farm is picturesque, and it’s lovely knowing that it’s a working farm and we got to share in their space for a day! We also did our rehearsal dinner on-site, and it was the perfect space to do so.

    The entire team at Windy Hill were a joy to work with, ESPECIALLY Chiara, who we absolutely love. She is such a kind, helpful person and she honestly went above & beyond in answering all of our questions and working closely with us up until the day to make sure everything was truly perfect! We cannot speak highly enough about her. She alleviated so much stress for us and made the entire wedding planning process so smooth. We loved every moment of our time with her and every moment we spent on the farm itself- it was amazing! We love, love, loved our experience at Windy Hill and could talk about it for hours! We highly recommend. :)

    Windy hill was perfect

    This venue, the farmhouse, the owners, and even the animals were all such perfect players in the wedding of my dreams. I knew I wanted a farm wedding, and Windy Hill checked all of my boxes. Not only that, but their cozy style and beautiful home added just the right touches. Also, there was a hurricane the week of my wedding and nothing phased them. Everything was amazing and I could not have asked for a better venue.

    Windy Hill is heaven!

    If you are looking for a farm wedding venue, don't pass up the chance to get married here. Windy Hill was everything we could have dreamed of. My husband and I were looking to have a fairly low-key outdoor ceremony and reception, and working with Windy Hill was amazing. The property is gorgeous with lots of open land and scenery, goats galore, plus a beautiful event barn with tables/seating and lighting, to decorate as much or as little as you wish. And even more remarkable are the Gledhills - such a wonderful family who really made our experience that much better. Chiara is an angel - absolutely any questions or requests that I had were met with an enthusiastic and encouraging reply. We really appreciated that the farm was dedicated to helping out with our goal of being eco-friendly, even composting our goods for us. Would also highly recommend the goat soap favors! Thank you Windy Hill!

    We got married at Windy Hill on September 1, 2018, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Chiara, Jane, and the whole Windy Hill family did an incredible job in welcoming us, answering our questions, and keeping us in the loop. Their beautiful family farm perfectly fit the vibe of our down-to-earth, laidback, community-centered wedding. Chiara was great about checking in throughout the process and answering the million-and-one questions that inevitably arose. Everything - from their hand-built tables and beautiful barn to the lawn games they put out for us - had so much thought and care put into it. Day-of, some highlights included: our intimate ceremony under the trees; the goats in the pasture right next to the barn who kept our guests well entertained; Chiara swooping in to help us lower the sun blinds when sudden winds started blowing table arrangements away; watching the storm clouds and pastures from the beautiful upper deck of the barn; and staying the night in their historic farmhouse and waking up to an incredible breakfast complete with chicken-of-the-woods frittata and fruit and honey from the farm. Thank you, Windy Hill, for helping make our day more special than we could have ever imagined.

    I can't say enough about how great it was to have our daughter's wedding at Windy Hill Farm. It was beautiful and so relaxing. Chiara, Russell and Jane were so flexible, attentive and friendly. I can't imagine a better place to have your special occasion. And, the home made soaps they make are perfect for thank you gifts.

    The Gledhills made everything so simple and stress free for us. It was absolutely amazing and blew my mind at how great they were, not to mention how reasonably their prices were. Super awesome people and outstandingly wonderful venue.

    We had our wedding in early June 2017 at Windy Hill Farm and truly couldn’t be happier with our choice. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, a working sustainable farm with rolling pastures where cows and goats graze, a beautiful, recently expanded (two story!) event barn, and tasteful aesthetic choices throughout. We were one of the first non-family weddings at Windy Hill Farm, and benefited from a lot of warm, personal attention and flexibility from the Gledhills in the planning of the event. From allowing us to select a ceremony site anywhere on the farm, to offering the use of their tractor for hay-bale rides to the ceremony site (a wonderful idea of theirs that added a lot of fun), to accommodating unlimited site visits and tons of logistical emails in the weeks leading up to the wedding, the Gledhills were extremely accommodating, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. That it is a newer venue means the event did not go off totally kink-free, e.g. confusion about what time we were required to turn off the amplified music on the wedding night, but this will surely be remedied over time. The bride and groom’s wedding prep areas on the day-of are located in the Gledhills’ own home – a beautiful, tastefully appointed farmhouse on the farm-- and it’s a bit difficult at moments not to feel like you’re intruding in someone else’s personal space. This was a minor issue that could easily be improved with clear establishment of and communication about boundaries (e.g. what areas in the house are on/off limits on the wedding day and at what times). On the whole, we were overjoyed to have held our wedding at this wonderful venue, to have benefited from their attentive service throughout, and to have gotten to know these lovely people. Highly recommended!

    Amelia,
    It was truly our pleasure to have hosted you and Mark on your wedding day. I adored every minute of planning your gorgeous celebration with you and seeing it all come effortlessly together. Your hilltop ceremony was beautiful and extraordinary. We're looking forward to many more hayrides in the pasture with beautiful brides! I am so very appreciative of your thoughtful criticism, and I sincerely regret that your day was anything less than perfect. We strive to learn from each wedding and grow into a better venue every day. We're so thankful that you let us grow with you! I wish you every happiness together, today and always. Yours, Chiara

    It was a deep joy to have our wedding reception at Windy Hill Farm! From the beginning of planning, they were a delight to work with and very willing to accommodate us. The day itself was stunning and the guests loved the views, the goats, and the barn. Dancing on the gravel surface worked great (we did contra dancing) and the tables they provide are wonderful and beautiful. Our favorite part was that it supports their working farm and thus the local food economy!

    My husband and I had our perfect wedding here on a late evening in May. Not only was the venue naturally gorgeous, with a large open field where you could watch the sunset, and gorgeous magnolias blooming, but the service and help provided by the Gledhills was outstanding. There were always willing to help with whatever task was at hand, no matter how big or small, and they were extremely generous in letting us use their lovely home to get ready in. I would hands down recommend this venue to any of my friends or family.
