Fall Weddings

Available dates Friday, Sept. 15th through October 31st

A Fall wedding at Vala’s means that Vala’s Pumpkin Patch is open to the public. The Pavilion or Wooden Picnic Shelter is a private area for your guests but keep in mind that other customers of Vala’s will be on the property. Your event may be for a rehearsal dinner, a reception or a wedding ceremony with a reception. Closing time for the farm on Friday and Saturday is 10pm.


A fall wedding event at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch can be a magical, beautiful experience. Our Pavilion makes the perfect venue for a rehearsal dinner, reception or even a small wedding ceremony with reception.

At this time, we are only hosting FALL wedding events, Sept. 15 through October 31, while the pumpkin patch is open to the public and all of our fall festival activities are in full swing. That means that, while your guests will have a private area to gather, there will be other people on the farm enjoying Vala’s Pumpkin Patch at the time of your event. But, it also means that your guests will be able to enjoy all the festival activities themselves (try swinging by the Bouncing Pillows as a group!).

Vala’s has a Catering Manager on duty during the season to help with food choices and serving for the reception. See our Catering Menu on the website. You may also have another caterer bring in food and serve.

If you are expecting deliveries (cake, flowers, caterers, DF, etc) assign someone to the front/parking lot area. Trucks and vehicles are not allowed inside of Vala's gates during hours of operation. Please contact our reservation manager to make arrangements for large deliveries.

Bird seed or bubbles are great to throw at the bride and groom but, please, no sparklers, plastic confetti, rice, or silk flower petals.

No alcohol is allowed at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch.

At the end of the night please assign someone to clear and strip the tables, pack up all your personal belongings and left-over food, beverages, and decorations. Vala’s will provide trash bags and containers.
