Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It doesn’t get any prettier than this picture-perfect working horse farm. One of the last of its kind in the area, it boasts ancient oak trees, romantic weeping willows, a tranquil pond…and its charming equine residents are always happy to pose for photos.
  • Host a romantic pond-side ceremony beneath the willows, followed by cocktails on the lawn. The elegant, impressive barn features open rafters, cool geometric chandeliers, and massive sliding doors that open to a brick-paved patio.
  • There are several hotels and resorts within just a few minutes (guests are even welcome to leave their cars parked overnight), and the farm’s central location, secluded but near several major routes, makes it ultra-convenient for travelers.
