As the Operators of Guildford Farm, we've seen tons of incredible wedding ideas come to fruition! We've also seen what works well at the venue…and what doesn't. Although we do not serve as your planner/coordinator (nor do we replace the need for a planner), we will serve as you and your planners "strategic advisor" from the day you book with us - until the morning of your special day! Along with this offering, we will meet with you and your vendors for a 1 hour on-site "vendor walkthrough" once your vendors have been selected (date of meeting must be scheduled several weeks in advance and it is advised this happens 3+ month before your wedding date).
Roughly 4,000 square ft indoor facility (temperature controlled). Main reception room is roughly 3,000 square ft and offers a "ceremony wall" with beautiful wood mantel backdrop if indoor ceremony is preferred. Includes spacious bathrooms, catering "prep" kitchen (commercial sink, residential oven + residential refrigerator/freezer combo), a 6 ft long "bar on wheels", space for buffet, space for dancing, large covered porch (perfect for cocktail hour), immediate proximity to main outdoor ceremony site that looks out at the Guildford Farm Lake. Our Private Loft (restroom and TV also included) may be used as Green Room for band and/or "vendor room". It may also be used as an option for “getting ready” by members of the bridal party. Special/private use may be acceptable, but Loft is not open to all guests. The loft also has a deck which overlooks the ceremony field and is a great location for pictures and views of the water/mountains. Access is allowed in Event Center from 12 PM the day before wedding to 12 AM at conclusion of wedding reception. Access may be permitted upon approval by Guildford until 10 AM the morning following reception if necessary. While night-before rehearsal dinners are welcomed and encouraged, "Welcome Parties" of over 45 guests are not included and would be considered an "add on" (requiring additional insurance coverage and cost).
