    August 28th 2021 wedding

    Our son & daughter-in-law had there wedding there in August, and we couldn’t have asked for more! The barn was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the covered bridge was magical! They are so organized, and run everything like a well ordered machine. All of our guests commented on the lights, the food, and the overall day! Bravo to Paul and his wife! Martha Alie
