I can not say enough about Kate and how much she helped us. The wedding was beautiful, the staff amazing, everything was perfect. Her help in planning the reception and guiding us when we hit snags was and as we look at pictures continues to be appreciated!

Kate Dowd and the staff of the Circle D Farm made my daughter’s wedding a perfect occasion. We had 4 months to pull together the wedding, and Kate’s calm, helpful manner kept everything going smoothly. The room was the perfect size and our guests raved about how lovely everything was. There was nothing Kate couldn’t handle — last minute changes to the wedding service, menu planning, décor– she was always flexible and had fantastic suggestions. No matter what we wanted, Kate and the Circle D made it happen. The food was delicious, the wait staff was friendly and efficient, and everything was handled with a professionalism that made it all seem effortless. The prices were unbeatable — the best value for your money in Howard County, I highly recommend the Circle D to everyone planning a wedding. You can’t go wrong with the Circle D and Kate Dowd.

Kate was wonderful throughout the entire process. She was also very flexible and quick to reply to any question and/or concern I had.

We had our wedding in their beautiful outdoor area and the ceremony downstairs. The area was small and cozy, perfect for a wedding venue under 100 guests, they have a nice upstairs area for more guests if needed.

As far as food, we did take a risk and not sample anything ahead of time, but the food at Circle D Farm turned out to be delicious, all of our guests enjoyed it.

Overall, we had a wonderful, budget friendly, wedding thanks to Circle D Farm. I would highly recommend this place.

Picking the venue is the biggest decision during wedding planning. Kate Dowd and her staff could not have made it easier for my husband and I. Besides the amazing property and the huge banquet room, the price for all they offered was extremely reasonable compared to a few others places we looked at. We were able to take our time the day before to decorate the room just how we visioned and the staff went above and beyond to help us. Besides everything I’ve mentioned and rated above, my favorite thing about working with Circle D was that everything was completely packed up and cleaned for us the following day. As a bride, it was a lifesaver and the last thing I wanted to do the day after my wedding. If I could rate this venue 10 stars, I would.

This place was wonderful! I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect. The venue was affordable and gorgeous, and the staff was fabulous. They work with you on everything to make sure that you are happy.

The food was delicious too! I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!

My husband and I just got married here on Saturday December 14, 2013. Let me just say that this is the first place we looked and the last. They are super affordable and Kate the event coordinator is amazing and very easy to work with. We kept changing our minds and then changing them back. She is very easy to talk to and is very good at what she does. She gives you her ideas and she has some great ones. We ended up getting married in the banquet hall obviously it was snowing that day and they had the entire room set up for the ceremony in front of the fireplace. Then after the ceremony everyone went downstairs to the lounge for cocktail hour while they made the room ready for the reception. Everyone on the staff that day was super friendly and helpful and bent over backwards to help whenever we needed it. The price was perfect for us since we were paying for everything on a very strict budget. They also have a beautiful outside ceremony area. Either way I would definitely recommend this venue to everyone. They did amazing and our special day wouldn’t have been that great without there help. The food was absolutely delicious we went with the generic baked chicken in a white wine sauce, with red roasted potatoes, and mixed vegetables with a salad. Thank you Kate, Daniel and I loved having our special day there.

Perfect! There should be more than 5 stars.

Kate, the event coordinator, was great to work with. She is personable, a great listener, patient, and helpful. She worked with us from our initial meeting until we walked out the door as husband & wife. The flexibility and choices we were given was beyond what I imagined. The banquet room is a clean, blank canvas that you get to work your magic with, from decorations, linen choices, layout, etc. There is separate space for the bride and groom to get ready to ensure no first looks. When we arrived to decorate Friday, the tables, chairs, & linens were all setup. It was breathtaking! They allowed us plenty of time to decorate & rehearse. We even were able to arrive early on the day of.

Due to rain, we had the ceremony inside, but with all the windows & amazing views, it felt like I was still having my outdoor wedding. Downstairs was available for cocktail hour while the staff rearranged the upstairs for reception and the wedding party was able to finish family photos. Kate & the staff took great care of us, always making sure we had food & drinks at our table. I could go on & on.

So, if you are looking for a venue that has both inside & outside space, personable staff that listens & isn’t pushy, affordable, spacious, variety of menu & bar options, stop looking right now! Circle D is the place for you! There is no where else I would have wanted the most important day of my life. Thank you Kate, Circle D!

Fantastic!! We had such a great experience with our wedding at Circle D Farm! The ceremony spot is gorgeous and the banquet hall was more than large enough for a big dance floor and for people to move around a bunch!

Kate was fantastic! She got back to me about every question within 24 hours. I knew I could email her with a question and she’d get back to me immediately. She also had a bunch of fantastic ideas when we were stuck about what to do. Our wedding day went very smoothly and Kate and her staff made sure that we were well taken care of.

I highly recommend Circle D for a wedding venue 🙂

Kate and Jessica were AMAZING!! They took care of everything and left it as stress free as possible. There was even a moment where a child did not like the meal provided and Kate made sure they got something to eat! The venue is a beautiful place to get married and I highly recommend it to anyone getting married. You can even do an outside ceremony (which we opted for, and could not be happier with the results)!!

-Jessica, 6/28/14

The moment we arrived at Circle D for the first time I knew that Circle D was the perfect venue for our wedding. Kate was amazing from the start- she offered suggestions, was always flexible, friendly, funny and made a stressful event with tons of planning run smoothly. She was very accommodating and let us come to the venue to see the banquet room a few times throughout our planning. She took the time to sit with us to discuss our options and was always prompt in responding to emails and phone calls. Many guests said how great the food was and how it was the best they have had at a wedding. Even the Circle D mascot (Willie) made everyone feel right at home. I wouldn’t change anything it was Perfect!
