Small, Intimate Wedding – Jimmy Choos or Muddy Boots

Your wedding day is yours and it should reflect you! You don’t have to have a wedding where you invite all your second cousins and aunt and uncles you haven’t seen since the last wedding. If having your close family members and your dearest friends is what you want to do, then you should it. Personally, I cringe when I hear of weddings with 300+ guests. At most venues that means you’ll spend around 60 seconds with each guest.

I think Christina Friedrichsen the founder of, said it perfectly: “No matter where you are in your wedding planning journey, my biggest hope for you is that you make your wedding an expression of who you are, right now. If you’re brave enough to break with convention and wave your rebel flag, you just might find that under all that tulle and satin, planning your wedding (or elopement!) is really just a fun little badass adventure –perfectly suited to girls who prefer muddy boots over Jimmy Choo.”

Josias River Farm is beautiful and intimate venue and it’s the perfect setting to host a small wedding as two families become one. So maybe you don’t want to orchestrate a big event or maybe you have a small family or maybe it just not you, whatever the reason, check out our “Love Affair” package on our website.

They have the opportunity and flexibility to create a wedding day that reflects their personalities. So whether you are a muddy boot or a Jimmy Choo kind of girl, JRF is the perfect venue for your special day.

June 2019 – Toni & Mike

We would like to introduce you to Toni and Mike.
Toni and Mike are always smiling! They came to look at Josias River Farm in the fall of 2019 and instantly feel in love with the venue. A day later they were booking. Toni’s family although from Massachusetts spent their summers in Wells, Maine, not to far from the farm. Toni and Mike’s and relationship started almost 8 years ago at Bowdoin College where they went to school. Maine to both of them is their home away from home and so it was only natural that they wanted to return here to get married in the seacoast area. We wish them the best of luck as Mike finishes law school and Toni get settled in her new practice.

A Stunning Rustic Wedding Venue! My husband and I were fortunate enough to have our wedding at Josias River Farm this past June 2019. It could not have been better! First off, the owners, Laura and Charlie, were incredible to work with. They truly cared about our vision for the day and were so easy-going along the way. They were always very responsive and did not mind us stopping in on various occasions to hash out certain details. One of the best parts of JRF is that we were were really able to make it our own to reflect us as a couple–something very important to us during our search.Toni Dacampo
