This historic dairy facility was a working farm in Seaford, Delaware in the early 1930’s and after much needed love and attention to the property, it became the premiere wedding venue it is today. After coming onto the Delaware wedding scene in 2019, our mission was simple – to supply our area with a wedding venue that was ahead of industry trends, offer unmatched hospitality to all guest and is versatile enough to meet the needs and wants of many different couples and their unique styles. At Vanderwende Acres we work tirelessly to provide our clients with the best hands on service available, continue to be innovators in our field of expertise and keep contributing to the ever expanding Delaware wedding scene.
Vanderwende Acres offers couples exclusive use to the property the day of their wedding along with our event coordination service offered by our Venue Director, Sarah Silicato Jones and her amazing staff of coordinators. Sarah was the founder of Sarah Ashlin Events, which was an Eastern Shore based event planning business that she started in September of 2018, with services now exclusively at Vanderwende Acres.
