Our grounds make an idyllic setting for your wedding!

Historic buildings, a gorgeous tree line, a romantically lit pavilion, and more: these are just some of the options you have for the outdoor wedding of your dreams at our venue.

The Hadley Valley Schoolhouse and tree line can be used for your ceremony, the Dee Cabin and beautifully maintained gardens for photos, and our pavilion or Stoppel Farmstead to have the perfect reception. We even have indoor spaces that can be used to get ready for your big day or host a small reception. Each location can be set up in a variety of layouts with help from our rental items, so you can get the perfect ambiance for your special day.

When you book with our venue, you can use any caterer, vendors, or rental services you want, and we can accommodate virtually any size wedding party: All of this while still having the benefit of eye-catching backdrops from sunrise to long after sunset.
