Not only were they very responsive with my numerous questions, they also provided phenomenal recommendations. We received so many compliments on the natural beauty of the venue and ceremony area.

“The Farm at Dover in one word is magical. From the moment we arrived for our tour, I knew this venue was the one. Stepping foot on the grounds is like transporting yourself into a storybook. Each step leads you toward another adventure with new details to discover, with hidden gems speckled throughout. Our guests raved to us about the thoughtful layout. From the beautiful walk starting at the parking lot to the barn, and then the barn to the ceremony site, there are hundreds of places to get “lost” along the way. I felt Tom and Juan’s love for The Farm in the way every small detail culminated into a story or experience. I can’t thank them enough for their help in making our day the best it possibly could have been. Our wedding was pure magic, as was our stay in the Lake House!”
“The Farm at Dover is a DREAM venue! It is absolutely gorgeous, so unique, and Tom and Juan are the best. There is lush greenery everywhere and almost every single person at our wedding told me how magical it was. The pink bridal house is so charming and was perfect for the girls to get ready in. The groom’s cabin is a cool, rustic space for the boys to get ready, with two floors and awesome decor. We did our first look in the stone-bordered garden and the photos are phenomenal. The barn itself is gorgeous and the attention to detail across the whole property is incredible. Tom and Juan are gracious, accommodating hosts and helped us feel so comfortable and confident that our day would be perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing about our experience here and would highly recommend booking!”
