We just received this lovely testimonial from for a wedding we hosted this fall...

“Having been a wedding planner for over a decade and being able to work around so many beautiful venues, hands down, Josias River Farm is second to none. The rustic barn, charming landscape, and breathtaking gardens are enough to make any bride swoon. As if that weren’t enough, the owners Laura and Charlie, are absolutely amazing to work with. Having the pleasure to work with such kind, accommodating, communicative owner, made my job easy.

From the moment you step in the Farm to the day if clean-up you feel welcomed with open arms. Brides, their families, and guests are truly made to feel so special. I hoping that all my future brides will consider this venue for their special day.”

Thanks Katie for the kind words. And to all the vendors who made this such a special day for Laura and Mike.
