We are so happy we went with The Barns at Nappanee
Jacyln was AMAZING with every single thing along the way. We had to change venues a few months before the wedding and she was nothing but helpful and kind. She responded to every question quickly and was so willing to help. The whole staff at The Barns made our day even better. We had so many compliments on the food that people said they wish they would have gotten seconds. We appreciate The Barns staff so much for everything they did for us! Our wedding ceremony was in the Garrett and our reception was in the main dining hall and it was BEAUTIFUL. I could not have imagined a better wedding. Jaclyn and Colleen made sure the day of was coordinated and there were no hitches along the way at all. If you are planning a wedding check out this location and meet with Jaclyn!Sent on 05/28/2021

Amish Acres was amazing! Truthfully we were a little skeptical about the Round Barn Theatre for the ceremony but it was gorgeous on the day of the wedding! And you CANNOT go wrong with their food. Becky was our contact person and she was such a blessing. She was there that day and stayed well into the evening and worked great with our other vendors. All of our guests commented on impressed they were with everything! A++Sent on 08/20/2016
