Absolutely fantastic

I picked this Venue 3 Years prior to our wedding and have love everything about the experiences before, during and after. Molly, Jason, and Gregg made everything just so perfect. Communication was super easy. Wedding day was ABSOLUTELY wonderful. We had no rain in our forecast the whole week. Then that morning it said it was going to rain at 4pm when the ceremony started. We were given all our options and they really wanted us to have what we wanted. The decision to move the ceremony inside was a hard situation but they did an immaculate job moving all the outside decore with in no more than 20 minutes.
Absolutely a terrific Job. I loved our wedding so much!

Amazing Wedding Venue

Brauer Barn was the perfect place for us to get married. The new bridal suite they added on is huge and super cute with all the amenities! The venue itself is gorgeous- rustic inside with beautifully placed lights. Molly, Jason and their family were great to work with and they really helped make our day perfect. I would highly recommend! Thank you again!
