Hydrangea Farm and Gardens
Why hydrangeas? Because they are arguably one of the most beautiful and versatile of flowers, and are always festive. Whatever the colors you choose for your wedding or special event, there is sure to be a hydrangea bouquet to match with its palette ranging from pure bridal white, to the softest of pink and lavender pastels, to charming bi-colors, and finally to those deep and dramatic blues and purples.
Let's not forget to mention that an eye full of hydrangeas makes for a stunning backdrop for any special event. In addition, Hydrangea Farm and Gardens can also provide for spacious outdoor lawn area necessary for large parties. Amusing and unique activities can also be arranged for guests and bridal parties, such as a croquet game utilizing the existing Olympic-sized croquet court, pheasant hunts, clay target shooting, a barn dance, a hayride or a barbeque.
What's more is that the wedding couple or other guests of honor are invited to make use of the Freddy's House Bed & Breakfast located at the farm itself. This makes it easy for the honeymoon to begin straight away, taking advantage of Hydrangea Farm and Garden's country farm breakfast dining room, the nearby wineries, the 101 acre wildlife preserve, the fruit orchards, or the sandy farm beach.
Make your event truly unique by booking it at the new Hydrangea Farm and Gardens.

This is a magically lovely place that you will fall in love with the moment you see it! We did, and we got married here this spring. We’ve been back a number of times since then. We love being here, and now of course it will always be like revisiting our wedding. So many beautiful flowers bloom here; hydrangeas, roses, peonies, wildflowers I don’t know the names of. The peonies are especially beautiful! With so many flowers in bloom when we got married, we didn’t even need to bring flowers to our own wedding. That worked out nicely for us because we were on a budget. Also being “green” is something that’s important to us, and we weren’t crazy about the idea of buying a lot of cut flowers. This was a much more eco-friendly option. What we did do was get a few arrangements of wildflowers from the farm itself. They have a lot of cool rustic décor you can borrow for the wedding. We rented some of their cute watering cans and this adorable wheel barrow. And the cutest thing ever was this little log box which you can open and close. We used it for cards! Everyone commented on how cute it was. If the whole idea of a green, homespun style wedding with some old-fashioned charm is what appeals to you, this is the best place you could choose! There is a lot of acreage, it’s quiet here, and it’s so pretty, and they are already all set up for rustic weddings. You’ll feel like you are out in the country. You will love it! We sure did!
I just had an incredible time at a wedding I attended over at Salt Air Farm. It was my friend’s wedding, and we weren’t very close friends, so I didn’t expect to have that amazing a time since I only know so many people in her social circles, but it was something to do, and she is a sweetie, so I showed. I’m really glad I did! Because I’m right in the beginning stages of planning my own wedding, and I know without question now that this is where I’m going to have it. She made my decision so easy. No need to tour venues or do all kinds of research. I know exactly what I can expect if I get married here, because I stayed for the entire party, and it was amazing! The farm is a really gorgeous place. They have a big open lawn which you can use for whatever you want. You can set up tents and dine outdoors, and you can also plan activities and make use of all that space. They have a real croquet court! I had never seen one before, and my friend opted to have croquet as one of her wedding party activities. It was really fun and something different to do. I never did anything like that at another wedding party before. I never even heard of anything like that. There were plenty of other cool activities you could do with all that space. This place is sometimes called “Hydrangea Farm.” I couldn’t figure out for sure whether that’s the proper name of the farm or whether it’s Salt Air Farm. In any case, the “Hydrangea Farm” name is quite fitting. We were surrounded by colorful flowers and fruit trees. Oh yeah, they had fruit picking too! I forgot that was one of the activities. I had fresh fruit in my fruit bowl at home for days afterward. I thought that was a really cute thing to do! Recently I wrote my friend and asked her some questions about what it was like to put the event together. She told me that the staff were wonderful to work with (which I can readily believe, just based on my memories of how friendly everyone was who helped out with the event), and she told me she was able to use the farm’s own florist, which was really convenient! I clearly remember the flowers and thinking that someone had done a terrific job. So there you go with that aspect. I think the two main reasons I want to have my wedding here are 1-the beautiful scenery, and 2-having the space to actually do stuff. While I want to do all the traditional stuff like the cocktail party and the dinner and everything, I really want my wedding to be different and include some fun activities that everyone can participate in. This is the first and only wedding I’ve been to like that, where there was more than just drinking, eating and chatting and dancing. It was really memorable, and even though it’s been months now, I can still recall a lot of details about how fun the day was. I am so looking forward to getting in contact with the venue owners and getting my own day reserved! I just know it’s going to be a terrific, one-of-a-kind experience!
An outdoor wedding was always our ideal; we never even considered doing anything indoors. We enjoyed visiting a lot of venues, but every time we came away with the same thought: “This is beautiful, but it all feels too put-together.” This is a bit hard to explain maybe, but it was like most venues were just too cultivated. We wanted to do it in a spot where things felt a little more natural, less planned, more spontaneous. This is a farm and not a cultivated garden, but there are tons of flowers everywhere and fruit trees, and it’s extraordinarily beautiful! Of course, it is also “put together,” but as a farm first, venue second, so it does have that feel of spontaneity. Not that a ton of planning didn’t go into the event, but in our photos you get the feeling our wedding party just drove up to this beautiful farm and had a spontaneous party. They always look for ways they can use the rustic feel of the environment as part of the décor. For example, putting their beautiful wildflowers inside old watering cans. That’s the kind of thing I’m talking about. You would never see that at your typical wedding venue, and that’s that type of “spontaneity” I mean. Also very fun was the fruit picking! Yes, that was actually an activity at our wedding! We all had a wonderful time choosing ripe fruit from the trees, and all of our guests had a nice bounty to take home with them afterwards. The fruit were amazingly delicious, very juicy and bursting with flavor. Much tastier than anything you’ll get at the grocery store by a mile! It is a very fun, romantic location, and if you are looking for something different, something that feels more “authentic” than the typical wedding venue where everything suffers from what I would call “overproduction,” you are in the right place. The farm atmosphere is incredible, and everybody is so helpful!
