Say " I Do "with Windward
For nearly 200 years, Windward has hosted weddings and celebrations for residents of Shepherdstown. The circa 1834 historic farmhouse makes for a fantastic preparation space, with it’s elegantly appointed formal living room and it’s dark and moody flora and fauna dining space perfect for a wedding party luncheon. All weddings take place outdoors with or without a tent to provide coverage, and we have a team of recommended vendors to help you with every step along the way. All of our couples that have taken their nuptial vows at Windward have been the type of people to enjoy the outdoors and appreciate a farmscape; A duck may wander through your reception and a rooster may crow, but we find these happenings to make the event even more special; We hope you do too.
