Our wedding at WGF was October 7th, 2017. We can not rave enough about this venue and the people that helped make our day extra special! Both Carolyn and Anthony went above and beyond by accommodating every little request we had, making the wedding planning much easier for us! Everything about this venue was amazing, from the drive up the long, tree-lined driveway, to the gorgeous ballroom in the mansion, the beautiful ceremony by the pond, and the reception in the spacious barn! We were fortunate enough to have gorgeous weather on the day of our wedding, but honestly, had the weather not been perfect, this was a great venue for a 'plan B' ceremony. The barn is large enough to accommodate all guests comfortably, leaving plenty of space to dance! Our only wish that was not fulfilled what that we weren't allowed to stay permanently haha :) If we could do it all over again, we would! I highly recommend having your special day at the WGF, there's just no other venue that has customer service like this one, believe me, I would know since I looked at 20+ venues before choosing this one.
Everything was absolutely wonderful!! We all had a great time and Anthony, as always, was a major help during the wedding preparations! Thank you for everything! I definitely recommend this venue!
Located in historic Shepherdstown, WV ( just 90 minutes from Washington DC and Baltimore), Wild Goose Farm is situated on 170 acres of woodlands and gently rolling hills. The property was founded and maintained by the Shepherd family who oversaw 3 different periods of construction, resulting in an interesting confluence of architectural styles. A wonderful collection of outbuildings - including a Greek Revival inspired springhouse, a stone smoke/meat house, a brick ice shed, and wooden chicken coop - are connected by an extensive network of stone fences, retaining walls, and small roadways. Although the farm has changed hands several times since the 1940s, the essential character and use of the property have not changed. The manor house continued to be used as a retreat by later wealthy owners, including NASA engineer Robert Moss in the 1960s , as well as former West Virginia Governor Caperton in the late 1990s.
Since its beginning in the 1840s, Wild Goose has stood as an elegant backdrop of the genteel life. A beautifully restored barn now completes the essence of rustic elegance. Indeed, the perfect setting for celebrating your special occasion with family and friends . . .
We'd be delighted to arrange a private tour of the grounds. Please call us for more information.
