I cannot say enough great things about this place. The staff- Laura, Kathy & Ruthie were fantastic. They handled all of our concerns promptly. Laura responded to each and every E-mail quickly- made planning a breeze. The wedding was on 7/20/18 and it rained so we had to move the ceremony inside, they were great, helping us set up and giving us decorating ideas. The reception was BEAUTIFUL!!! The service was great, never an empty water glass, the food was delicious, the Donut Bar is a must have...people are still talking about it!! Restrooms were clean and the Bridal Suite is so close to the Hall making it super convenient. This was truly the most beautiful venue I have ever seen!

My heart bursts when I think about our wedding day at Kuipers Family Farm on June 30, 2018. I was planning my wedding from Los Angeles and so I needed a venue that was going to be very responsive, flexible and reasonably priced. Kuipers was all that and more. They allowed us to have the property for the whole day which was very rare when looking at venues. We were the only wedding taking place at the property and the venue has everything you could need - didn't need any extra rentals. The venue is HUGE and our guests were able to play corn-hole, take a train ride around the property, sit by the fire pit, or dance in the barn. There was so much to do and see and the property is beyond beautiful so your pictures will be stunning (attached a few of mine but haven't gotten them all back yet). I really think our wedding is going to stick out in all of our guests' minds as one of the best weddings they have ever been to. The staff at Kuipers was super helpful and friendly - it was all so easy with them, which took a huge load off my shoulders. You will remember this day for the rest of your lives and Kuipers will make it perfect!

Kuipers Farm and the event team made our wedding day PERFECT. It was effortless. They helped us every step of the way, even with planning and the rehearsal. The venue is beyond beautiful. I felt like I got married at a private vineyard in napa valley. It was so private and quiet. You could dress the place up however you'd like, but if you did nothing, the place is perfect as is.

So far so amazing! I have been working with Al since the engagement and Kuipers has been an absolute dream to work with, not to mention is a gorgeous venue. We are getting married in Virgil and will be having our reception at Kuipers. I am planning my wedding from Virginia and they have been so accommodating and helpful with the process and working with our budget. We did a tasting with Upper Crust Catering, who is their caterer at this venue and the food was phenomenal! Working with them has been a breeze and has made planning stress free from afar! I will follow up after the big day!

Beyond amazing!! My husband and I just had our wedding here on the 14th and it was beyond my dreams. the whole staff was perfect. I don't think I could ever thank Al enough for his patience with me and every crazy idea my imagination would come up with, he took the time and listened and always had great advice. The day of our wedding Maribel, Kathy, and of course Al were like fairy godparents, my wedding went so smooth and everyone had a great time. I can not wait to be able to bring my grandchildren to apple pick here in the future and tell them about how grandma and grandpa had there fairy tale wedding here!! Thank you so much to Al, Maribel, Kathy, the whole staff and the Kuiper family for opening their farm to our family and many others!!

I cannot say enough great things about working with Kuipers Farm for our wedding. Everything was perfect! I really enjoyed that they basically took care of everything for us. We didn't worry about the cake, food, plates, table, etc. We had so many compliments on our venue & location. Our guests loved that we had the farm to ourselves and that it wasn't just another banquet hall. If you're thinking about booking your wedding there - just do it! You will not regret it! The team is amazing & I would work with them again in a heartbeat!

I got married in June at Kuipers Family Farm, and it was perfect! My husband and I love going to their apple orchard in the fall, and when we found out they are also a wedding venue, we knew it would be a great place to get married. Albert and Maribel, the event coordinators, are wonderful to work with. Throughout the process, they made sure every detail was taken care of and took away a lot of stress of wedding planning. The food was catered by Upper Crust Catering, and everything was amazing. We had pulled pork sandwiches, beef brisket, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and coleslaw… it was all so delicious! At first I was hesitant about the buffet option but we decided to go with it to save on cost. I was very impressed with how well it was organized! They had two stations set up, and staff serving the food, so the lines moved very quickly and people didn’t wait long at all for their turn. For dessert, we chose the donut sundae bar option - apple cider donuts (fresh-baked!), caramel sauce, whipped cream, and other various toppings. Everyone loved the donut bar! They even had flavored syrups to go with coffee- many people commented on how that was a nice touch! I can’t rave enough about this venue and the staff- everyone was so friendly and accommodating. Truly a wonderful place to get married!! We have beautiful pictures and memories from our wedding that will last a lifetime :)

We just got married at Kuipers Family Farm and could not be happier!! The venue is absolutely gorgeous! We worked with Al prior to the day of the wedding where Cathy helped with the day of wedding details. They were so friendly, extremely accommodating, and very professional!! We loved everything about the day/night and highly recommend checking it out. The pictures are going to be stunning with the apple orchard in the background. We received so many compliments on the venue and can't wait until we can attend a wedding there as a guest.

Kuipers Family Farm is one beautiful place to be married. Even though our wedding had a mini "hurricane" it was still lovely inside. Kathy and Al were so accommodating and were on top of their game the whole entire evening. It was truly magical and we will never forget it. We are also very happy to have picked Kuipers, because we can keep returning for years to come for apple picking, christmas trees, pumpkins, and more : ) Thank you for all the memories.

We wish we could celebrate our daughter's wedding again! And we would definitely return to Kuiper's Family Farm. So many friends and family said it was the most fun and unique wedding they had attended. The location and facilities were truly perfect-you get the feel of a rustic working farm but with the amenities of a more traditional setting ie. ac, bathrooms, sound system... that you have to truck in for other barn venues. The silo bar was a big hit and the bartenders do a great job of having cocktails ready to go on the terrace immediately after the ceremony. Our only reason for less than a perfect score was there were a few problems with the food. However, Al Shelton, the manager, did his very best to rectify the situation. Al and Kathy are two of the hardest working people we've ever met and went above and beyond with their dedication to please us. You really don't have to worry about anything with them at the helm.
