  • I had planned a bridal shower at Appleford Estate in April 2019. One word... WOW. The estate is gorgeous and was a perfect setting for the event. Laurie was very helpful throughout the planning process and we ended up with a 72 and sunny day- spending most of the event in the patio area and gift opening in the stunning living room. Had so many compliments from the ladies and the bride enjoyed every moment. Thank you, Laurie! Hope to be able to come back again soon.

    Hi, Christina, this seems to be the season for showers! We've hosted several and more in the works. The beauty is that you are in a home-like setting without the mess and hassle of hosting in your own home! So glad you were WOWed!! Thanks for sharing. Laurie

  • I have hosted many events at Appleford over the years -from corporate gala's to my father's funeral luncheon to a recent baby shower. I'm always so pleased with how beautiful the estate can be transformed into your special event. The house has a warm, comfortable and stately ambience. Your guests will be in awe of it's beauty and lovely gardens. I'm still getting compliments! Laurie and her staff could not be more accommodating to ensure a successful event.

  • Everything we ever wanted in a venue. The bride being a stylistic and historical oriented person and the groom being one who enjoys nature and wildlife, this venue satisfied them both with its mixture of both. An historical estate within an arboretum, including a pond and a hedge maze, this venue has something for everyone. It also has a fantastic rain plan (which never is required) just in case...and plenty of space indoors in case it is hot out. The Hostess was always accessible and nothing but professional.

    Hi, David and Steph, thank you for your kind remarks. You nailed it! If you like history, nature, gardens, water features and understated elegance, Appleford is the place! We are a hidden gem and when guests/clients appreciate what we offer, well it warms our hearts! All the best to you both.

  • This is a beautiful and exquisite venue and Laurie was super, out-of-the-world supportive and helpful. We had our wedding in late October, and the starting foliage was beautiful and warming. The house and the attached white tent made the venue feeling intimate and exquisite. We had a small wedding and this venue made our wedding ceremony and reception even more intimate and genuine. The staff was over-the-top supportive. My question emails get immediate responses and they satisfied all of my requests. Laurie added another layer of intimacy into our wedding. We can't thank her enough for supporting us with a beautiful wedding. I highly recommend this venue especially for intimate and exquisite weddings.

    Thank you Dannie. Your tears of joy and emotion were so touching that I saw some of your guests dabbing their eyes, too. Since you are now local, please come back to visit us. It's been a pleasure!!

  • My Husband and I recently had a our reception at Appleford and we couldn’t be more impressed with how everything turned out! Laurie was professional, sweet, and she made sure everything was in order and taken care of. Our guests are still talking about what a wonderful experience they had. Appleford is a beautiful place to have an event, especially a wedding. It was truly a perfect day that we will never forget!

  • I knew I wanted to have my wedding at Appleford the second I drove up the long tree lined driveway. My husband and I were looking for a beautiful outdoor venue with trees and a natural setting to have both our ceremony and reception. Appleford had this, beautiful gardens, and an amazing estate house with an interesting history. We amazingly had a bright sunny day for our wedding and were able to be married in front of the new Willow Tree (both my husband and my favorite tree)! The director, Laurie was easy to work with and promptly responded to all my questions. She also knew several of the vendors that we had, which made it easy to trust everything would run smoothly. Beyond the beautiful natural setting, the tented terrace looked magical with hanging bistro lighting and perfectly complemented our gorgeous flowers. I think my favorite areas were the garden area where the outdoor bar and cocktail hour was held and the bridal suite. There was plenty of space for guests to wander around ... Read more

  • The whole Appleford experience could not have been more perfect. Laurie was available at any time to answer questions or help problem solve. All my guests were blown away by how beautiful the venue was. It ended up going down to 32 degrees the night of my wedding but the heated tent was comfortable for all, and anyone was able to go inside to sit by the fires.

  • Appleford was the perfect setting for our garden wedding on May 25th, 2018. It was the first and only venue we went to because we knew it was exactly what we were looking for as soon as we saw it. It was a gorgeous day, the gardens were in bloom and everything felt perfect on a warm May afternoon. The old estate house was a beautiful setting for some photos and the getting the last touches ready with our bridal party. We had our ceremony on the lawn adjacent to the house and then a cocktail hour in the gardens around the tent. Everything was set up beautifully and our guests loved the charm of the venue. The tented terrace area for the reception was great, fans kept air flowing and everything cool for dinner and dancing - plenty of room for our 100ish guests. The gardens were set up with cocktail tables and chairs so the guests could enjoy the outdoors and our bar and charcuterie/cheese table. We also set up games (cornhold, ladderball, etc.) in the rose garden which was lovely. If you... Read more

  • Appleford is a dream venue. The grounds are gorgeous, the estate is pristine, and the rainy-day contingency plan gave us such peace of mind. We had our ceremony and reception on-site and ended up with pretty minimal decorations because everything was so naturally beautiful. The estate itself is fascinating to walk around in and the porch is both roomy and intimate. Laurie was super responsive and helpful throughout our planning process and clear with communication. A possible pro/con is the required vendor list of caterers and DJs/bands you're allowed to use. For us it was a pro and a con because it took the research aspect out of our hunt, but we did not have a lot of budget flexibility because the list of caterers are on the pricier side. Overall it was an amazing experience and exactly what we were hoping for from a wedding venue.

    Hadley, I'm sorry I am just seeing your review. Thank you for booking Appleford and glad you didn't need to use Plan B due to weather. It was a pleasure working with you. Stay in touch!

  • Appleford is a beautiful location for a wedding or special event. Having access to the interior and exterior spaces allows for flexibility with changing weather or event size. We had a little over 105 guests at our wedding and the property worked perfectly for our needs. Laurie is a pleasure to work with and quickly answered our questions throughout the planning process. We highly recommend Appleford!
