The Vineyard Hall at Howe Farms is GRAND. It is one of the largest venues in the area, able to host 400 guests and somehow the venue manages to still feel intimate. It is a gorgeous space with perfect indoor and outdoor options and could be the wedding venue you’ve been looking for!
Howe Farms is known for its views and wedding venue options that fit every style and taste. The Vineyard Hall is close to Ceremony Hill, and this is no small hill. Ceremony Hill provides mountain and water views for your ceremony backdrop. No matter the time of day for your ceremony, you can’t beat the views!
Before even making it to the end of the aisle, brides make their debut through a jaw-droppingly gorgeous pergola draped in wisteria. It takes my breath away when I see it. I know the first look as brides head down the aisle will be even more impressive when entering through this pergola!
The paver aisle leading you to the groom and bridal party also thoughtfully runs to the other gorgeous pergola. And the floral arrangements on this one…the options are endless! Can you tell I just love pergolas with an excellent floral arrangement?! They give so much dimension to your ceremony photos so I always suggest if there’s a pergola, talk to your florist about creating something spectacular!
THE GRAND HALL
The Vineyard Hall itself oozes elegance before you even step inside. The covered awning at the entrance is spectacular and if you’re a bride who is dying for a sparkler send-off, then Vineyard Hall could be your spot! Pull that vintage classic car up front, load up and have the most stunning send-off!
The next detail that I love is the arched doorways that feature wrought iron overlaid on glass. It’s elegant and sophisticated. Guests will feel welcomed by the doors and once inside may fall in love with the white-washed walls like I did. If you opt for an indoor ceremony, or just to have your reception inside, the walls provide a blank canvas to suit any design aesthetic.
Inside the Hall are gorgeous chandeliers that illuminate both stories – yes – Vineyard Hall has a mezzanine level! It overlooks an indoor ceremony or your dinner and dancing. It’s a perfect spot for guests to have a birds-eye view of the dance floor. The mezzanine level is also the perfect spot for flowy fabric to drape down to the main level. It totally ups the romance factor, and as a lover of love, I am all for the romantic decor! The stairs coming down from the second level also make a fun place to begin bridal party introductions! It’s one thing to have a venue with high ceilings, but it’s another when the high ceilings also lead you to a fun look-out level. It’s one-of-a-kind!
Inside the hall are other go-to spots for activities for your guests to enjoy. A photo-booth? A video photo collage of you and your hubby through the years? The fireside lounge supports activities for guests or even another bar station, with action away from the dance floor!
I could go on and on. As I said, this venue is GRAND! Both the bride and groom getting ready suites are full of space, photo ops, and activities. The groomsmen can fish in a nearby pond or play poker in their suite. The ladies have a salon set-up space with tons of getting-ready room. If there wasn’t enough to love, The Vineyard Hall has even more! A bistro-lit outdoor patio space, a wood-burning outdoor fireplace, and an additional covered porch and patio. There is so much to enjoy and you have to see it all for yourself!
