We hope your wedding guests feel like they are coming to a really special place and event, and they are! We are above all things, a very personal venue, and personal service is our big focus! Not your typical ‘commercial” wedding venue, or just a ‘place” for a wedding, we provide a wedding experience and celebration for you and your guests. Knolle Farm combines the best of all, blending the natural beauty with the charm of facilities that have been so lovingly planned, to provide romance, convenience, and the perfect backdrop for your wedding and reception. Yes, being a working ranch, we are certainly pros at hosting rustic weddings; but, not all brides want “rustic”. We also love sophisticated events that demand all the polish of years of timeless grace and elegance, features that our classic indoor event facility boasts in abundance. With years of experience, we know our facilities well, how things flow best, and it is our job to make sure everything is beautiful and flawlessly set for your day.
Most weddings take place inside the most perfect of little white country chapels, sitting in the midst of the rolling pastoral countryside. With large arched doorways, custom designed stained glass windows, antique pieces from French chapels, the copper covered steeple, and bell-tower, all combine to create the ideal setting for any wedding. (There is so much meaning and love in this chapel; we hope you will read about it in “The History of the Chapel” and enjoy it as much as we have in providing it for guests.) Couples may also choose to celebrate their vows in other lovely spots, including indoors in front of the huge arched window, under an arbor, or even in a grove of giant oak trees, with rustic benches and Mother Nature as a welcoming setting.
As with everything else at Knolle Farm & Ranch, wedding receptions are a personal choice; but, ordinarily take place, inside our air conditioned event facility, onto manicured grounds, covered patios, and dance-floor area. There are wide open spaces for guests to roam and mingle, and intimate seating niches that allow them to find the perfect spot to sit and visit, even relaxing around the big fire-pit, roasting marshmallows! Be it a casual garden or rustic gathering, or an elegant seated dinner, attention to detail is our specialty.
