The Setting

The essence of a historic farm estate is captured at this Western New York family farm. With pastures dotted by vintage farm features and acres of open fields, couples will have ample chance to create a rustic, yet elegant style wedding. This farm feel is balanced with lush landscape and historic gardens winding throughout the property. The gardens and farm estate sits elegantly against the open fields for guests to take in views and enjoy a cocktail hour. Receptions can occur in the fields and ceremonies and cocktail hours in the gorgeous gardens. The gardens are beautiful and enjoy a panoramic view over Cattaraugus Creek affording sightings of resident Bald Eagles and Great Blue Herons.

Only forty minutes from downtown Buffalo guests can enjoy the arts, music and food of the city. And for guests looking for more outdoor opportunities, they'll find weekend activities such as woodland hikes within 100 acres of forest and the fly fishing waters around. The wedding couple can rent the estate itself for overnight accommodations for the wedding party, themselves or family. There is a Board and Batten Great Lodge with 7 bedrooms, three cabins and a dorm type sleeping area -- the perfect setup for enjoying a full wedding weekend.
