    Beautiful combination of classic country and modern brides....There are many places to take pictures and your guests don't need to be transported from the church to the reception, both are available onsite! Very very cute and unique venue that is also flexibile and great to work with!

    Bonanzaville is the place to be with its great facilities and awesome staff. Our wedding was put together in a short amount of time and we couldn't have done it without the help of Bonanzaville, they were cooperative and accommodating in so many different ways. Our winter wedding came with additional challenges, but that was not a concern thanks to the diligent help from the skilled staff at Bonanzaville. They allowed us to personalize the venue in order to create our vision, and thanks to the charm of the historical buildings, both inside and out, Bonanzaville holds an abundance of great photo opportunities! From the buildings themselves to the smallest details, everything came together absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to hold our once in a lifetime event.

    For the most part, I am happy with my wedding at Bonanzaville. I just had my ceremony in their church, and the best part is how beautiful it is. It's such a unique location, and my guests loved it, and being able to wander the museum afterward was a big plus. We took various photos afterward in the church, balcony, outside gazebo and around the other buildings, and it's a beautiful backdrop. The venue was easy to work with and let us do what we wanted with few restrictions, which was nice, like setting up early and tearing down late, blocking off the church for us the whole day even though we only used it for half, etc. My only slight complaint was sometimes communication was more delayed than I would like, but they did always eventually get back and were pretty helpful. I'd definitely recommend!
