Woman Getting Married Says:
Normandy Farms is a vintage-inspired wedding venue that while unique, also feels traditional at the same time. While I don’t think it would be a fit obviously for couples looking for a more modern or luxe wedding venue, I think the spaces have a charm that can definitely work for a lot of different wedding themes/styles. The ballrooms have a tendency to feel a bit dark, so I go with lots of warm, amber-colored uplighting where possible to give it a gorgeous candle glow as well as flowing white draping. A con is that there can be one more than one wedding at a time, so I would be sure to inquire about how that would work. A big pro is that the majority of your guests can stay at the hotel, where you can also plan a fun after-party at the hotel bar, making it super easy for you (and guests!) to just walk back to your room. 🙂
