Venue Setting

Updike Farmstead offers couples complete access to the restored late 18th century farmhouse and newly renovated rustic barn which is nestled on six acres of picturesque land minutes from downtown Princeton. The expansive back porch overlooks the bucolic landscape of preserved farmland and perfectly manicured grounds. The front of the property is lined with mature trees that add to the magical home spun quality of the venue. It’s undeniably romantic with a french country flare and perfect for the anti-ballroom bride. 

Updike Farmstead is available for Weddings May – October. We are currently in the process of renovating the historic barn which will hold 125 guests with a dance floor. We anticipate this renovation will be complete in the spring of 2017. You may also choose to have a tented event to accommodate up to 200 guests or utilize both the barn and a tent. There are also multiple locations on the property for a ceremony. We have put together an excellent team of three exclusive caterers and a equipment rental company to help you plan your special day.
