Why We Love It: We have loved Finley Farms ever since it opened, so we’ve naturally been eagerly awaiting the grand opening of the Farm’s new wedding chapel. The chapel officially opened in the fall of 2021 on the bank of the Finley River, and it combines nature and minimalistic rustic elements. The chapel is also just one of many wedding spots at Finley Farms. Other open-air venue options include The Riverside Bridge and The Mill, which means the Finley works perfectly for your larger weddings or smaller more intimate weddings. Finley Farms makes decorating simple for couples since each venue spot is effortlessly beautiful by itself.
