to set up an appointment.
In an effort to give you as much time as needed to prepare for your wedding or event, we allow you and your vendors to come in and set-up Thursday at 1pm and ask that everything be broken down by the following Monday at 6pm.
Large Polo Barn
One of the more popular features is the 38-stall polo barn, which is one of the largest and oldest buildings available for your wedding day. Previously housing Saxony Farm’s successful string of polo ponies, the original horse stalls and an impressive 60 ft. vaulted interior provide an exceptional setting for a variety of different functions. The natural character of the wooden structure and lofty ceiling provides an incredible backdrop in which to host an intimate ceremony under the cathedral-like beams. The large polo barn has the capacity to hold 200+ chairs for a ceremony and 250+ for receptions. The rustic stalls also offer an ideal area for a cocktail hour prior to or following your ceremony, food stations, a bar area, photo booth site and on some occasions, a last minute rainy weather option. The dimensions of the barn are: 135 ft. x 11 ft. central breezeway, 60 ft. x 11 ft. cross breezeway; stalls are 11 ft. x 11 ft. We also have 8 authentic bourbon barrels that are on site and available for you to incorporate into your event design.
Scenic outdoor ceremony area
The outdoor wedding site faces west and is bordered by mature pecan, sycamore, bur oak and maple trees that provide ample shade and a majestic surrounding for the ceremony. The guests will look out over rolling hills of the historic Kentucky countryside, grazing horses and Saxony Farm’s hallmark Training Barn. This luscious, green space is a stunning location for your wedding vows and can be customized to capture the perfect view for your day.
Shade-Filled Marquee Area
The marquee area is only a few steps away from the ceremony site and is surrounded by a beautiful green lawn, lined with stately trees; this area has a newly added 40 ft. x 100 ft. terrace offering the ideal surface for your reception. The existing terrace allows for a smooth, dry surface for you and your guests to dance the night away! The marquee area can accommodate large and small tent sizes and comes equipped with a direct electric connection for all your vendors’ needs.
Small Polo Barn
The original Polo Barn at Saxony Farm embraces much of the heritage and character of this family owned farm. Upon entering this space, the extraordinary single hand-hewn 30-foot-long bur oak table from Saxony Farm and a 100-year-old stove, take center stage of this barn. A rich and timeless authenticity to this rare space can be found in the names of previous polo ponies on the beams and original feed troughs and saddle racks have all been maintained.
This legendary spot, well known amongst Thoroughbred horse racing’s elite, has created countless wonderful memories for many different people and continues to carry on that tradition today. Allow yourself and your guests the opportunity to carve out your own memories in this historic place. The small polo barn is ideal for smaller functions, such as the rehearsal dinner, private dinner parties and bridal luncheons. The Kitchen in the Small Polo Barn can also be utilized by your caterer on the day of your wedding.
