Choosing the perfect ceremony site is one of the most critical decisions you'll make when planning your wedding. It sets the tone for your entire day and plays a significant role in the memories you'll cherish forever. At Double Creek Farm, we understand the importance of this decision, which is why we offer four unique and versatile ceremony locations to suit a variety of wedding styles and guest requirements. In this post, we'll take you on a virtual tour of these locations and offer some tips for selecting the perfect spot for your big day.
1. The Creek Arbor:
The Creek Arbor is one of our most popular ceremony sites, and for good reason. Nestled alongside one of our beautiful creeks, this site offers a serene, natural backdrop for your wedding. With space for up to 200 people on 28 benches, and the ability to add more seating as required, it’s perfect for large gatherings. The sound of the gentle creek adds a special touch of tranquility and romance to the ceremony.
2. The Hardscaped Patio:
Imagine saying "I do" in front of a warm, crackling fireplace as your loved ones watch from the comfort of a large, hardscaped patio. This site is perfect for those cooler fall weddings and offers a unique, romantic ambiance. The patio is a versatile space that can be easily decorated to align with your wedding theme.
3. Inside the Barn:
For couples who prefer the comfort of an indoor ceremony or have accessibility considerations, our barn provides an excellent solution. The barn is not just a rainy-day backup—it's a stunning venue in its own right, featuring white-washed poplar walls, sparkling string lights, and three beautiful chandeliers. The barn offers air conditioning and ease of access, making it a great choice for all your guests, including those with mobility challenges.
4. In Front of the Barn:
The area in front of the barn presents two beautiful options. Couples can choose to face the barn, making the most of its rustic charm as a backdrop, or face the expansive field, leveraging the open space and natural beauty for a serene outdoor ceremony. The beautifully landscaped hardscape walkway leading up to the ceremony area adds a special touch to your bridal procession and wedding photos.
Tips for Selecting Your Ceremony Site:
Consider the Season: Each site at Double Creek Farm offers a different experience based on the time of year. If you're planning a fall wedding, the warmth of the patio fireplace could be an enticing factor. For spring or summer weddings, the Creek Arbor or field view might be more appealing.
Think About Guest Comfort: If your guest list includes many elderly or mobility-challenged individuals, the ease of access and air-conditioned comfort inside the barn might be a deciding factor.
Reflect on Your Wedding Style: Each location offers a different aesthetic. The barn, for example, is perfect for a rustic or vintage-themed wedding, while the Creek Arbor might be more suitable for a nature-inspired, bohemian-style ceremony.
At Double Creek Farm, we believe every wedding should be a reflection of the couple's unique love story. With our four diverse ceremony sites, we're confident we have the perfect location to bring your dream wedding to life. We invite you to tour our farm, take in the natural beauty, and imagine saying "I do" in one of these breathtaking locations.
