Facilities and Capacity

Avonley Homestead has both indoor and outdoor areas that can accommodate a range of festivities. For the iconic moment when the happy couple become newlyweds, the lush green landscape offers a number of places that would be very suitable. An arbor can easily be set up for the to-be-weds to stand at as they say their vows in the open air. After the pair have each said “I do” and applause has rung out, the ceremony can draw to a close. The couple’s chosen photographer can capture couple portraits of the just-married pair as they pose around the grounds. The cocktail hour promises more fun and memories as the wedding party begins to mix and mingle with each other. As the afternoon drifts towards the early evening, the barn awaits as somewhere inviting and cozy for the reception revelries to begin. The barn may be entered through the large sliding doors, or from the porch via another doorway. Inside, it is defined by wooden features, high ceilings, exposed beams, and a spacious build. Tables and chairs can easily be arranged for approximately 100 guests to sit, relax, and enjoy a culinary adventure. The adjoining porch provides somewhere secluded for guests to move to for some fresh air as the evening blends into night. In truth, this romantic and provincial setting would be fitting for intimate and low-key celebrations.

Absolutely fabulous! Highly recommend!

Melissa at Avonley made our special day even more special!! The consultation was so professional and intentional. They helped with all those small details and helped us feel even more ready! They let us bring our cat Gunther and that made the day even better! I loved that they let us come back for different walk throughs! and cared so much for my vision, it felt like they cared just as much as I did ! Melissa was quick to respond and to take care of any issues during the rehearsal and day of! The photos are absolutely gorgeous & their place is STUNNING. I wish we could get married there over and over! Excited to take our one year anniversary photos outside the barn!

Avonley Homestead was the best venue for our fall wedding. Additionally, Melissa & her husband go above and beyond for their clients. The communication was always incredible which helped the stress of wedding planning. Their passion for what they do is shown in their kindness and helpfulness!

Perfect Wedding!

I am so glad I found Avonley! Beautiful barn and outdoor space - perfect for my fall wedding. Melissa was quick to answer any questions I had and very flexible and accommodating. Every guest raved about how it was the best venue and wedding they had been to. It was also very affordable.

I will add that will there is a ton of beautiful outdoor space and foliage, it is only a couple of blocks from downtown Shelbyville, making it very convenient. There are great AirBNBs and restaurants close by, as well as a hotel less than a 5 min drive.

Everything was truly perfect!
