Who We Are

 

Welcome to Something Blue Berry Farm.  We are Steve and Carolyn Rookus, owners of this century old farm property.  Steve is a retired Naval officer with a construction management background and Carolyn has followed him all around the world raising 4 children.  We have been married for 34 years so we know a little about love and marriage.  Our farm speaks to our hearts with its beauty and history and know it will be a romantic setting for your wedding day.

Why Choose Us

We hope you consider Something Blue for your perfect barn wedding.  Something Blue Berry Farm is a historic 140 year old property starting as a dairy.  With 55 acres of woods and rolling picturesque fields you are sure to find what you are looking for.  We have taken great care to preserve the old wood and charm of our barn while updating the space for your event.

Included in the property rental is a beautiful bar out of an antique counter and fireplace, complete catering space, chandeliers, vintage lighting and sound system.  We offer farmhouse and round tables, chairs, as well as linens for your head table. 

Our barn seating arrangement can handle up to 225 guests.  We have 240 padded white chairs as well as church pew and bench seating in our ceremony sites.

There are two ceremony sites on the property.   Our site close to the barn features antique door entrance, arch, and pew seating with the barn as your backdrop.  Shade trees provide relief from the sun.  Our wooded site features bench seating and beautiful trees as your backdrop.  Transportation to our wooded site will be provided for those requiring assistance.

Our outdoor spaces offer patio seating, and breathtaking views of the sunset from our stamped concrete porch.  All of our patios are lit with string lighting as well as solar lanterns throughout the property.  There is plenty of yard space for lawn games and a beautiful rustic fire ring for cool nights.  Our parking lot is lit and has room for 140 cars.

If you choose to have your ceremony here you will have ample time and space to prepare for your wedding.  Our farmhouse has a room set aside for your hairstyling and makeup.  Our carriage house provides another space for the groom and his party.
