The Venue

Wedding Reception


Set among century old White Oak trees and upland forest, an ageless Timber Frame Pavilion stands guard over the water ponds and botanical gardens. This turn of the century farm offers its guests many amenities to make their occasion as special and intimate as nature will allow in its grandeur.
