My now husband and I fell in love the second we visited River Farm. It has everything you could ask for- multiple ceremony options (including an inside option if it rains, which we needed! ), views of ... Read more of the river, a spacious reception tent with lighting (INCLUDED!), lush garden spaces, and of course the beautiful historic home itself. Even on our very rainy wedding day, the property looked stunning and provided a lot of options for great photos. Janet helped us throughout the planning process, and was exceedingly professional and warm. She was happy to answer any questions that arose and worked well with our caterer to make a seamless transition to our "plan B" when it became apparent our outside ceremony wouldn't be feasible. This spot truly is a hidden gem, and its price is extraordinarily reasonable for the amount of time you get at the venue (including the option to drop of items the evening before), the incredible support Janet provides, and the sheer beauty of the venue itself.

The Perfect Wedding Setting

River Farm was the very first place we looked at for our October wedding. It is truly a gem! And even more wonderful is Janet who serves as the lead for all weddings and events. Janet is hilarious, ... Read more warm and genuinely wants to help couples on their special day. The grounds are beautiful and make for a wonderful backdrop for your vows. The new and improved tent is incredibly lovely and can be heated or cooled in case of inclement weather. It rained on our wedding day, but we were dry and warm inside that beautiful tent, which by the way, has 2 incredible chandeliers. Our guests are still raving about River Farm!!!!

If you are looking for a gorgeous venue who knows what they are talking about when it comes to hosting events, look no further! They made everything effortless when we were setting up for our wedding. ... Read more Janet is so knowledgeable and helpful. The location is to die for. We heard all night how much everyone loved our venue and how gorgeous it was! Dancing must be in the ballroom because River Farm is in a neighborhood and there are noise ordinances. I was a bit worried having it slightly separate from the dining area just outside, but I had guests say how much they loved this, because if they wanted to talk, they could go outside and they didn’t have to yell at eachother over music. Highly recommend!
