Your best day


Congaree and Penn boasts an elevated farm setting that's equally Southern and otherworldly. Just around the corner from downtown Jacksonville, our farm is an effortless retreat for local guests and tourists alike. We love sharing the farm with our guests, and we think you will, too.


Take a peek at how these Congaree and Penn couples celebrated their best day.


"Wedding planning is such a crazy season in all of the unknown. But one thing my (now) husband and I wanted stepping into our wedding day, was that the vendors surrounding us were people of peace. As our day-of vision became more clear, Lindsay was so flexible and assuring throughout the whole process. There's something about farm life, that is simply beautiful. From the minute we walked onto the farm it matched our desire for the beauty of creation to be more present than decor. Congaree and Penn was exactly what we were looking for, and we wouldn't have imagined our day any more beautiful that it was. We would do it again, and again, and again!"
