Dawn, Richard, and their entire team were amazing to work with. We originally had plans to get married last year somewhere else and than the pandemic hit. Instead of going into the city, we wanted to stay local. Clear communication between Dawn and Richard the entire process. Anything that I could imagine, they made it happen. They kept me calm and reassured me even when we had small issues that had nothing to do with the venue. They were amazing to work with and such a beautiful venue. I honestly wish I could've take a breath in and appreciated the amazing work they did. The food was amazing, the venue is beautiful, everything was wonderful. I could not appreciate them enough. We hope to come back for our vows renewal later on in life and I dearly hope that Dawn and Richard are still making dreams come true because the next people have a very impressive shoe to fit. Thank you Farmhouse at People's Light for being such an amazing venue!

The food, its service, and presentation were perfect! Every guest made a point of praising the entire experience, as well as the beautiful grounds. They rated it higher than any wedding they ever attended.

My husband and I were married at The Farmhouse at People's Light. We had been working with a wedding coordinator for a little over a year and were really looking forward to our special day. We were called a week before the wedding and informed that we would have a new wedding coordinator for our big day. We were both extremely nervous and apprehensive! Our new wedding coordinator was Spencer and he assured us that we were in good hands. In typical bride mode I was freaking out and told Spencer that I would need to meet with him to go over everything just in case. He told us any day would work for him and he would work around our schedules. I met him the next day and after just one hour felt immediately at ease about our wedding day itinerary. Spencer had the same vision as us for setting up and had all details in order. He had a folder of all of our wishes and plans and was on point with making sure that we were comfortable with him. When we arrived on Friday to set up before the rehearsal the reception area looked BEAUTIFUL. It was just as I hoped and the rehearsal ran smoothly. He was open to ideas from the wedding party about changes and how things would go the next day. On our wedding day we could have not been more happy! Everything ran so smoothly! The time frame was perfect. Dinner, parent dances, and cake cutting were done by 8:10. We were able to have almost 2 full hours of dancing and spending time with all our loved ones and friends. I was very impressed when I saw Spencer bringing out dinner to our guests!! He was involved in the entire day and even came out on the dance floor for a dance or two! It was refreshing to have someone so lively as well as professional to help us take care of such an important day. Thank you Spencer for taking care of Nick and I on our wedding day. We appreciate everything you did and were impressed that our wedding ran so smoothly since it was your first event at the Farmhouse! We couldn't have asked for a wedding coordinator!
