THE IDEAL LOCATION FOR YOUR WEDDING AND RECEPTION
The Farmhouse’s 330-year-old, historic country estate sets the scene outside, with over 10 acres of panoramic views in the rolling hills of Hunterdon County. Impeccably manicured lawns seat loved ones amongst lush gardens and towering trees for intimate and picturesque ceremonies. Tent the grounds for all-season ceremonies and receptions.
Hunterdon County’s grandest outdoor venue for weddings offers countless opportunities for capturing romantic wedding photos. Sit beneath our “Kissing Tree”, a giant oak located at our expansive property – and let its sprawling branches embrace the timelessness of your love. Let the stonework of our historic Schoolhouse perfectly frame you and your sweetheart as you sit within its lush garden. Enjoy a luxurious cocktail hour, the setting sun spotlighting you and your guests on our beautiful hedge-lined patio. Allow our brilliant white gazebo to whimsically reflect the wedding dreams of your youth. Our wedding venue’s grounds are adorned to highlight each stunning season, meticulously manicured to ensure that on your special day, you will be surrounded by seasonal flowers and foliage.
Inside, The Farmhouse has everything that you need. Its Grand Ballroom hosts up to 250 guests with plenty of room for dancing the night away on our new dance floor. Intricate pinspot lighting, recessed lighting, and a state-of-the-art sound system offer personalized ambiance and entertainment. Light the Grand Ballroom in your dream wedding colors; keep to one, or pick a spectrum: Fiery reds and oranges, cool blues, effervescent golds, rich pewter with hues of lavender. They are all possible.
Farmhouse Weddings, Large and Small
Your wedding will reflect your personality, whether it embraces 10 guests in the Farmhouse Restaurant’s Wine Room, 200 guests in the Grand Ballroom, or 500 guests in a lavish tent on the Great Lawn. The Farmhouse attracts weddings of all sizes, large and small. Intimate gatherings in the Farmhouse Restaurant’s private dining spaces are perfect for smaller weddings. Consider the VIP Room, dating from the 1600’s, and the Treebank Room, dating from the 1800’s, and the Perryville Room as romantic spaces for smaller wedding ceremonies and receptions.
Farmhouse Wedding Packages start at $129 ++. Pricing depends on season and day of week. For more information about specific dates inquire below, or call 908-735-7889.

“WE JUST GOT MARRIED AT THE FARMHOUSE AT THE GRAND COLONIAL ON JUNE 23, 2018 AND IT WAS FLAWLESS.
We chose The Farmhouse for our wedding because of the FANTASTIC food and also because it didn’t feel like a “wedding factory”. We were immediately drawn to the beautiful grounds, welcoming staff, and their strong desire to make your wedding feel like your own. My husband and I really wanted a wedding that was personalized and the staff at The Farmhouse was more than willing to help make our ideas a reality. Being detailed oriented people, we really appreciated the time and effort the staff put in reviewing every last detail with us. They were patient and willing to answer all our questions (and we had plenty)! On the day of the wedding, everything was executed to perfection. The staff was attentive to not only my husband and I, but to all of the guests. Between the cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert … food was absolutely amazing. Your guests always remember the food they had at a wedding and ours could not stop raving about it! Our wedding coordinators and maitre’d were completely ‘on top’ of the evening making sure everything was going well. They always made sure my husband and I were okay and most importantly, kept the reception flowing with the food, dj, cake cutting, etc. We didn’t have to worry about anything. To cap it all off, we ended the night with a fireworks display that our vendor and The Farmhouse planned together to perfection. The Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial is truly a hidden gem in NJ. Thank you for making it the best day of our lives.”
