Ponds, green fields, lush forests, and flowers join forces to give you the ultimate unique setting for the wedding of your dreams.
Farms are incredibly romantic, with blue skies, fresh air, and green trees fluttering in the breeze. Smaller farms across the country are the fabric of local agriculture, promoting sustainable environmental practices and strengthening local communities. Support these important spaces, often run by generations of families, by choosing to host your special day at one of them.
Nightingale Stables, Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts
Buzzard's Bay is one of the oldest towns in the country (founded in 1620), and this beautiful, family-owned horse farm is less than an hour from Boston. The history of the town next door, a historic fishing village on Cape Cod, allows your guests to explore the nearby area as an escape into the past.
The red barns are quintessentially New England, and the sweeping pastures with horses combine to become the perfect backdrop for your wedding. Next to the barn, a wide-open field is the ideal spot for a tent that can host 250 guests with plenty of space for everyone.
Lafayette Farm Gardens, Lisbon, New Hampshire
Surrounded by rolling hills with amazing views of the White Mountains, this farm is ideal for a unique and intimate wedding ceremony. A gorgeous cedar-shingled house is available on site to rent for the bridal party with lots of light and plenty of space for you and your nearest and dearest to get ready for the festivities.
Dappled light trickles through the tall trees on the property, and the sloping green lawns set the stage for a relaxing celebration. This space is a beautiful canvas you can shape to your style in every way.
Ivory Brook Farm, Cape Neddick, Maine
This farm settled in 20 secluded acres of forests, fields, and pastures. The property features a fully-restored 250-year-old barn to give your wedding an authentic historical feel. The farm's paths and trees light up at night to cast the landscape in a romantic, warm glow as your guests enjoy exploring the grounds.
There's a significant cute-factor as well in the form of a small goat farm on the property so your guests can have a meet-and-greet with some adorable animal pals. (Seriously, these are some of the cutest goats we've seen, and in our line of work, we meet a lot of goats.)
The Farmer's Sanctuary, Bethlehem, Connecticut
Be still our hearts. This farm is gorgeous year-round: In the fall, a picturesque pumpkin patch and incredible foliage set the scene. In the spring and summer, lush green fields and serene ponds make a warm-weather wedding idyllic.
The fields can host up to 100 people, and the venue offers plenty of parking, hay bale seating, and much more.
Mount Mansfield Farm, Wolcott, Vermont
This verdant farm has been family-run for almost thirty years, with gorgeous views of Mount Mansfield and the green valley below. And if you and your fiancé enjoy taking in sunsets together, this farm is famed for having one of the best views in the region. Enjoy cocktail hour with your guests as the landscape takes on a rosy glow from the setting sun.
Greenhouses dot the farm, and one can even be used for a seated reception for up to 120 guests. Enjoy dinner surrounded by greenery and seasonal produce under a glass ceiling strung with lights. A stone arch provides an unforgettable backdrop for the ceremony, and the grounds feature memorable elements like a swimming pond which create lovely backdrops for pictures. Not to mention the fields of wildflowers that douse the fields in bright colors during the warmer months. All of these distinctive elements and details combine to create a truly unforgettable backdrop for your wedding.
