Perfect Wedding and Reception Venue

5/ 5

My husband and I got married at the Farmhouse over the summer. We had our wedding in the back outdoor area and the reception inside the farmhouse with the back bar/patio open. The staff was amazing from the very beginning, including the months leading up to the wedding. They were helpful in finding all the vendors we used and were more than accommodating with the requests we made. All the options they offer are VERY affordable and you get more than you pay for. The outdoor area is enchanting and the inside is a beautiful renovated farm house. One huge bonus was how amazing the food was! They serve a hot meal to every person, their course selection is extensive and unique, and everything was delicious. Check this venue out, they always have open houses, you won’t be disappointed!

A Perfect Wedding Venue and Experience!

5/ 5

My daughter and son in law were married at the Farmhouse recently and I highly recommend this venue!! We had approximately 140 guests and everyone praised the venue, the food, and the entire experience as being one of the best they’ve had! The staff was extremely professional, the food was fantastic, and the venue is so romantic and perfect for a wedding! They were able to present my daughter’s vision perfectly! The Farmhouse itself is settled on picturesque grounds which made for so many picture taking opportunities! The outdoor space for the wedding was beautiful! The owner of this venue is very professional and knows what brides today are looking for. Laura worked with us on every detail–and even some we hadn’t thought of! The bridal suite is a perfect space for putting on the final touches! This venue is a welcome change from the large halls with high ceilings of today. It offers a more intimate and romantic setting that made everyone feel a part of the festivities. We had plenty of room for dancing the night away!!

Great Venue

5/ 5

We booked this venue in November 2014 for our September 2015 wedding. We had 90 people, and held the ceremony and reception here. We used Mary Elizabeth for flowers, and OHS entertainment for our DJ. It has a beautiful inside, as well as two pretty options for the ceremony outside. Laura and Katie worked with us and always were quick to answer any questions or concerns. The day of the wedding, Laura did an AWESOME job running things and keeping us on schedule, and probably tons of other things that I never even knew about. It went off without any issues. The food was great (all the guests were and have been telling us, too), the bartenders were quick, and everything was perfect. If you are looking for a venue in Delaware, this is the one to use. In the costs, they include: a cake, centerpieces, table settings and covers, all set up and break down of everything, petals down the aisle, and other stuff too depending on which meal options you choose. We planned this remotely while living in Richmond, Virginia. We took a couple of trips up there, but it was incredibly easy to organize everything since they vendors work together so well (cake, dj, farmhouse). Thanks Laura and Katie (and the rest of the staff too!)

We Loved The Farmhouse!

4.2/ 5

My new husband and I just had our June wedding at The Farmhouse and we were incredibly happy with our day! The rustic, romantic indoor/outdoor setting was exactly what we were looking for. Their prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of food, service, and staff. Also, several regional vendors adore The Farmhouse, and may even offer a discount just because. Their on-site staff for the wedding itself was professional, friendly, and responsive; if anything went wrong on our day, we were completely unaware! They are in the process of changing management, so there was some funkiness with communication regarding our payments, but you couldn’t ask to work with friendlier people. We would highly recommend The Farmhouse to any brides in the area (or out of the area – we live in Colorado).
