    Very Beautiful place to get married or to plan any event! It rained on my wedding day but it was still a beautifully made up place to get married in! Loved the barn the most! Chris the owner, is a very easy lady to work with!

    The Civil War Ranch is an amazing venue! Chris is so helpful and flexible. Does all she can to make bride and company feel welcome and comfortable! Got married by the pond and God pulled out all the stops from multiple color sky, fish leaping in the pond, to a gorgeous rainbow!

    I have had the good pleasure to perform one of my most memorable wedding ceremonies at the Civil War Ranch. It was late summer last year the ceremony was held just outside the barn. It was threatening rain and indeed did rain. One of the best parts of this wedding venue is its versitility. YOu can have an outdoor or an indoor ceremony. This particular day we waited for the rain to pass and we were able to get the ceremony in before it begain to rain again. The cool part was the double rainbow that appeared just after the ceremony. It was a great photo opportunity. Civil War Ranch is already a great photo shoot venue, but the double rainbow didn't hurt the couples wedding photographers ability to really deliver some great shots! I highly recommend you consider The Civil War Ranch for your next event or wedding for sure!! Sincerely, Rodney Noran The Casual Wedding Officiant www.OfficiantforaWedding.com
