This husband and wife team take immense pride in hosting milestone occasions and strives to deliver exceptional customer service to each of their valued clients.

Facilities and Capacity

Boasting over 12 acres of verdant woodland beauty, this charming property offers stunning views. The estate itself boasts elegant event spaces for wedding ceremonies and receptions, and couples will delight in the indoor and outdoor options. For example, the property's post and beam barn is an ideal setting to say 'I do.' constructed in 2019, this rustic venue can accommodate up to 225 guests. Post-ceremony, guests are invited to proceed to the property's exclusive Beverage Barn for a cocktail reception. This stylish event space features high ceilings, exposed wooden beams, and ambient string lighting to help enhance the romantic mood. The property's Farmhouse is an ideal choice for to-be-weds seeking an elegant setting to celebrate their love. Get-ready suites are also conveniently located at the Farmhouse, providing a comfortable area for the wedding party to utilize throughout the day as they wish. A fourth space known as the log cabin serves as an additional guesthouse.

The perfect venue!

The Dappled Willow is the absolute PERFECT wedding venue. We have so many good things to say about them. First of all, the property is gorgeous!! They have created a beautiful little oasis out in the country, with the farmhouse, log cabin, two barns, ceremony space and beautiful woods and landscaping for photos. Everything is SO clean and all the details are beautifully decorated, down to the bedrooms in the farmhouse and log cabin. There is plenty of space to accommodate over 200 guests (we had 215). The food and bar can be set up in the small beverage barn, which frees up so much space in the main barn (and keeps it quieter)! They have plenty of supplies you can use, and were extremely helpful with the setting up and tearing down process.

We would have been happy with just the venue, but we also had the best experience working with Callie. She went above and beyond to make our day perfect. She was SO responsive, helpful, calm and on top of all the little details. She answered so many questions for us throughout the entire planning process and made sure we felt comfortable. Her and husband were there the whole day of the wedding, ready to help and make sure everything went smoothly. They were so kind, helpful and encouraging throughout the entire process and day-of.

The venue is extremely affordable, especially considering we had access to the property starting at 9am the day before the wedding and got to sleep our entire wedding party there as part of our package! They were also very up-front about all the costs, what was included in the package, etc. We knew exactly how much we needed to pay when we booked the venue, and that didn’t change once throughout the entire process. We even accidentally overpaid at one point and hadn’t caught the mistake, and Callie caught it and refunded us!

In all, we could not be more thankful to work with such honest, kind and organized people. The Dappled Willow is an absolutely beautiful venue, and working with Callie made our entire process so much smoother and more enjoyable. We couldn’t recommend them enough!!

November Wedding

We were looking for a reasonably priced venue in a location not too far from Carmel and not too far from Greencastle. Dappled Willow ended up being such a beautiful venue that met our needs and wants. Being able to use any catering was important to us and honestly rare to find. Dappled Willow enabled us to have Chipotle at our wedding. Such a hit with our guests! My bridal party and I stayed in the farmhouse the night before the wedding which was so sweet and special. Callie was great to work with and was extremely present on the day of the wedding. Overall, my husband and I are so happy with having had our wedding here. Our pictures turned out beautiful and we had so many different locations to take photos, both inside and out. We were nervous with a November wedding but the barn is heated. The grass was still green and the flowers were still beautiful regardless of the season. Highly recommend in all aspects!!

A perfect day!

Our wedding here was absolutely perfect! It was spacious, relaxing, and beautiful. I love the use of the two separate buildings. It split the space up nicely. All of our guests enjoyed the reception space as well as the patio area.
