The second wedding vendor I recommend is Vanderbeck Valley Farm. Mike & Wendy Burton own this AMAZING venue and they go above and beyond to do absolutely anything they can to help your day go perfectly! I have had the pleasure of shooting numerous weddings here and also some portrait sessions as well. The property is always stunning!
Besides already being a fantastic location for your big day, the Burtons are getting ready to start building a barn on the property. A BARN!! Not only will they have the prettiest outdoor venue around, they will now have an amazing indoor option or place for your reception. Yay for not renting a tent! And really, who doesn’t want to get married in a barn?! I have honestly been waiting for there to be somewhere in the area for barn weddings! 🙂 so fun!
Here is some information on Vanderbeck Valley Farm so you can look them up and also some things Wendy had to say. Don’t forget to also look them up on Facebook for more photos and information!

Wedding & Special Events Venue Open June-Sept
In business since 2009
We primarily do weddings/anniversaries but we can also do family reunions, car shows, any special event!
Rental rate is $3,000 & the space is available for 3 days
It is best to book 1 year in advance, bookings start coming in about the middle of summer for the following summer.
It is hard to pick just 1 favorite part of wedding weekends, it’s all so special but it would probably be when bride & groom see each other for the first time…gives me goosebumps! And of course once the party starts going & we can see the families & friends having a great time. I run my business a little differently than other venues…I don’t treat my couples as just another couple getting married in our venue, they become part of our family!
Some advice I could offer brides is plan, plan, plan! Have a notebook you keep all of your information in, write down EVERYTHING you want to see happen on your wedding day & make sure you have people in place to help you…don’t try to do it on your own! This is your day & we are here to help make sure it is one of the most special days of your life!
cute little barrel benches by the creek!
If you ask Wendy’s dad, Wilbur, really sweetly…he may even drive you to the aisle in his awesome car!
Katelyn & Justin actually got married at Vanderbeck’s in 2012 so when we needed a beautiful location for their maternity photos this last year of course it was perfect to come back and do them here! 🙂
