(Don't Miss Our New "Wedding Videos" page. What better way to picture your own wedding at the farm than by seeing how others have used this gorgeous venue.)
Simple, beautiful, private and affordable - Wolftrap Farm offers a stunning site for outdoor weddings, with accommodations for close to 60 guests in the Manor House, three luxurious cottages, the new Barn Apartment and the newly added Baldy's Retreat and Cox Mill House. If you have been looking for a venue where you can have a true week-end celebration with your loved ones staying with you on-site, and have the place all to yourself, you have found it at Wolftrap Farm.
Our Pavilion offers you a beautiful, rustic, indoor/outdoor reception facility, with a lovely dressing room, warming kitchen for your caterer, and an adjacent hilltop ceremony site. This former equipment barn has been transformed into the perfect rustic and informal wedding reception space, complete with stage and dance floor, adjustable lighting options, ceiling fans and lawn area. (Please be sure to visit our Facebook page by clicking on the box below. There you will find many pictures of weddings at the farm, links to blogs about weddings at the farm, tons of reviews, etc.)
One of our ceremony sites is pictured above. From this site, or from the new hilltop site, the wedding guests face the tree-covered first range of the Southwest Mountains. There is also a Pond-Side site that has special charm for nature lovers.
Since the wedding party, family and closest friends may stay on-site, many couples organize their rehearsal dinners on the farm as barbecues or cook-outs, using either the Pavilion or the shore of the pond. Bridal luncheons are often held under the large covered patio of the Servants' Cottage.
The ponds full of bass and bream, the Game Barn with its pool table, air hockey and ping-pong tables and other games, the rope swings, the horseshoe pits, the miles of woodland trails and the pastures adorned with beautiful horses assure that every generation from the children to the grandparents will be thrilled.
See page on Weddings - Details/Packages for more detail on cost, what you get for what you pay, etc. Price information on this page is just a summary. Any "Special Deals" will be on the Details/Packages page.
The farm is available for Saturday weddings by booking the Manor House and four cottages for at least two nights ($1,750/night), plus $5,000 for use of the Pavilion and grounds starting from the time of your Friday arrival until midnight Saturday. That means the cost for a Saturday wedding is $8,500 plus $255.50 of tax. Remember, that gives you five houses for Friday and Saturday nights, plus use of the Pavilion and grounds starting from the time you arrive Friday. You may also add on Baldy's Retreat for an additional $1,000 for the two nights. The Cox Mill House may be added on for an additional $600 for the two nights. The Details/Packages page goes into more detail about pricing, what you get for what you pay, etc. Plus that page has our answers to Frequently Asked Questions about weddings at the farm. Be sure to read it.
For Sunday weddings, the Pavilion and hilltop ceremony site may be rented for $2,500 and you need not book any of the houses. If you want your Sunday wedding ceremony to be on the front lawn of the Manor House, you would need to also book the Manor House for Sunday night, which would be at our week-day rate of $460.
Discount Months: In November, the Pavilion is 20% off, but the houses are still full rate. In March and in early December, all rates are 40% off, both houses and Pavilion. We have not hosted weddings in mid-December, January or February, but we have hosted some college events during those months. The rates are 40% off from December through March.
For week-day events, the Pavilion is available for $1,000 for evening events, $500 for mid-day events. However, Fridays are generally not available as that would interfere with our Saturday wedding bookings. We make exceptions if we happen to have a Saturday with no wedding booked and we are past the time when someone is likely to book for Saturday.
The farm is also a great place to hold other celebrations, such as wedding anniversary parties, college reunions, birthday parties, bachelorette parties, and so forth. There is no extra charge to have a dozen or so additional friends over for a cook-out at the farm, or just to hang out, fish and enjoy the scenery. However, for larger events, please send a description of the event and the number of guests expected and we will work with you on pricing and a plan, including use of the Pavilion.
Here are some links to blogs about weddings at the farm, mostly from the photographers, but also some from wedding planners and officiants.
