But I don't want you to take my word for it, so I thought I'd illustrate what I mean through photos from all sorts of events Rocklands has graciously hosted across all seasons. Not just weddings, either!
Then And Now
Megan (with her husband Ted above) wasn't the only Glenn to get married on the farm. Greg (and Anna) followed suit, as did former and current staff including Nick Wilson, Shawn Eubank, and Chris Ahn, who of course was my ticket to a farm wedding.
Rocklands Showers and Flowers
"The intimacy of the barn, the soft rain on the tin roof, and the amazing acoustics all provide an amazing environment for a beautiful wedding ceremony. Many brides chose to be married inside the barn, and don't even plan an outside ceremony!"
I may be biased because it was raining on our wedding day, but I've been to several weddings at Rocklands Farm and I have to say I love its rain plan! I've been to both casual stand-up weddings and sit-down weddings in the barn (including our own), and thought both formats worked great in the space.
Then again, stormy outdoor weddings have their own charm ...
Brides have worked with Janis on unique approaches to weddings on the farm, like having a doughnut bar at their brunch reception or incorporating Rocklands' antique furniture and china into their celebration.
And have I mentioned that Rocklands is a stellar engagement spot? Again, I may be biased, but there was something incredibly romantic about getting married in the same place I was proposed to!
Your gracious host(ess)
I have been asked many times why I like hosting weddings on Rocklands Farm. After giving that question some thought, I have finally found my answer. Joy. Simply joy! I enjoy seeing the joy that comes from getting friends and family together to celebrate the rituals that come in life.... I remember the joy I had here at my daughter's wedding (a few years ago!). Here I am, sharing a laugh with a dear dear friend. My goal is for Rocklands Farm to be a place where people can laugh like this on their special day! — Janis Glenn, Rocklands Farm events manager
