Wadley Farms' history begins in 1869, a few years after Joseph Wadley emigrated to the United States and to Utah. After arriving in Utah, he was granted 160 acres of land in Lindon that he transformed from sagebrush filled land into a home and orchard. The land has since been purchased and passed down from generation to generation. The first main building that was brought to Wadley Farms was the barn. After it arrived and was fixed up, couples started to ask if they could use it to hold their wedding. The next building purchased for the farm was the Railroad Building from an abandoned mining town. The owners, after traveling through Napa Valley, California decided that they wanted to make updates to each of their buildings and they engineered them into the Tuscan theming they have today. The castle is the most recent building to be constructed on the property. To learn more of their history, click here.
Wadley Farms is still a working farm today, and it's an incredible wedding venue. So much craftsmanship has gone into all of the little details, and they each have their own story to tell.

Getting Ready Rooms
Just like everything else at Wadley Farms, the bridal suite and groom's room have distinct histories. The bridal suite is located inside the office building and the Tuscan theming is in every detail. The room has it's own private vanity and bathroom along with a full length mirror. The groom's room is a separate space in the garden area so that you won't have to worry about running into each other before the ceremony.
The Railroad Building was once used in an old mining town and was transported to Wadley decades ago. It has gone through quite the transformation to become the eye-catching piece it is today. The fireplace and mantle flanked by the wooden beams and chandeliers make for the perfect ceremony site.
