    Amazing Venue!

    I remember sitting at my sisters dining room table so excited that I just got engaged. My sisters were helping me look for wedding venues and my twin said “B, look at this venue! It’s beautiful!” And my heart skipped a beat. I saw the photo of Dana Powers Barn and emailed them right away asking if we can visit. We visited 8 other venues and we just couldn’t stop thinking of Dana Powers Barn. Their email communication was amazing, kind, fast, positive, and helpful. They were never pushy, they just were so nice! We ended up booking the Barn for our ceremony and reception and during the wedding planning process Melanie was the sweetest most helpful person! She was there for every question. Reading her emails I can just tell Melanie is just a nice human being. Their rental company is literally the best thing every and one of the 2nd main things why we hired them! They have so many cute rentals! On rehearsal day we figured out we needed one more drink station and we just walked on over with Zach and chose one to rent. How easy is that! The email communication was amazing, the wedding was amazing, the rehearsal was amazing! Their barn is so beautiful and even more beautiful at night! It’s filled with lighting, the bar is amazing and was a huge hit, and the barn has cement! Thank you Dana Powers, Melanie, and Zach for making our wedding day purely amazing and a night and experience we will cherish forever. We can’t thank you enough, I highly recommend this venue to any bride and groom!

    Gorgeous venue & wonderful staff!

    This venue is absolutely perfect in every way! All the guests ranted and raved about how gorgeous the barn and surrounding areas are. It has the perfect balance of rustic and elegance. Zac, Melanie, and Judi were amazing to work with and made sure that every need was met. It's a little slice of heaven!
