The Vineyard Barn
With space for 400 guests, the Vineyard Barn's exterior features magnificent pillars, accented with iron doors, gas lanterns, and bistro lighting. As the interior lighting shines through the picture windows, the elegant and timeless hall welcomes guests before they even walk through the doors.
The quaint white chapel serves to house the bridal party until the ceremony begins, and provides a perfect backdrop for the bride to walk down the aisle, through the wisteria-covered pergola, and to the arbor where her groom is waiting for her.
Surrounded by peach trees, beautiful evergreens, and delicate blooms, Ceremony Hill is truly the centerpiece of Howe Farms. Guests will be in awe of the unsurpassed beauty while atop the rolling hills. The sun sets softly to the side of the ceremony site, and glimmers subtly on the lake below as the bride and groom commit their lives to one another.
Grand Reception Hall
The highlight of the barn are the magnificent barn doors, perfect for framing an indoor ceremony, or highlighting the bride and groom as they dance the night away!
Beautifully blending masculine and feminine aspects, the interior of the barn features wooden pillars and iron railings, yet also incorporates delicate touches including white-washed walls.
Overlooking the main level, the mezzanine level's hidden entrance through the bridal suite is the perfect place for the bridal party to be announced into the reception, and is a most desired space for beautiful natural light portraits.
The open balcony of the Vineyard Barn creates an additional space for guests to enjoy the reception without feeling removed from the event!
The bridal party is treated to a luxurious salon-style setup. Lighted mirrors on our vanity stations are perfect for hair and makeup. The bride and her bridesmaid's have private closets for dressing, and direct access to the restroom, making getting ready an enjoyable and stress-free experience!
The groom and groomsmen are not to be forgotten on such an important day. Here at Howe Farms, we know that the groom deserves just as much luxury as the bride! That's why our groom's room features a massage chair and poker table alongside of the individual cubbies and a full-length mirror for dressing. Our grooms are also invited to fish in our fully stocked fishing pond to relax before the ceremony!
Fully stocked with two ovens, two microwaves, a warming drawer, two refrigerators, a walk-in cooler, and a chest freezer make this space ideal for event caterers. Three dishwashers are set in an alcove, and the workspace is separate from the serving area.
A gas fireplace surrounded by a massive stone hearth creates an intimate spot for guests to escape the hustle and bustle of the reception for a few moments.
The lounge area directly connects the venue interior with the porch, allowing for seamless transitions between event spaces. It also has a staircase leading to the open balcony, which allows for smooth foot traffic flow between areas. The room also lends itself to a bar setup, photo booth, or memorabilia display.
Covered Porch & Patio
Your guests will love relaxing for a few moments in the rocking chairs, underneath the bistro lighting. The porch directly connects the patio area to the interior, through the lounge space. The rocking chairs provide an excellent viewing area for the dance party happening on the patio! A great place for a bar setup, the Vineyard's exterior is sure to please everyone!
