Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It’s a match-made-in-heaven partnership: a beautiful heritage farm estate under its fourth generation of stewardship by the same family, with menus crafted and created by WoodWinds, a beloved (and also family-owned) catering service. 
  • Kalmia Garden is your storybook-perfect setting for ceremonies and receptions, and it couldn’t be more idyllic, with its bounty of rustic-natural details—stacked stone walls, meandering paths, colorful flowers, and historic farm buildings. 
  • Package options range from a simple but all-inclusive single-day celebration, to a three-day experience that lets the pros take care of all the details. And all packages include lots of wonderful perks, like Adirondack chairs, charming farm décor, and lawn games.
