Natalie McGuire Gibbs is our Venue Coordinator

Natalie McGuire Gibbs

Growing up on the 110 acre farm has given Natalie a treasure trove of memories. Fascinated by wedding planning, at age 13, Natalie started helping her mom, Linda, with the family business. After graduating from college, she came back to the farm to be the venue and event coordinator. Of all of her memories growing up at the farm, her most treasured one was marrying the love of her life, Casey. It is her love for the farm and her passion for wedding planning that makes Natalie exceptional in her position as venue coordinator at McGuire’s Millrace Farm. She knows all of the hidden locations for that special photo, and she knows the exact tidbits out of the attic that will complete your décor. Natalie’s ultimate goal is to provide you with the wedding of your dreams, and to make your wedding planning a fun, memorable, and stress-free experience.
