    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.

    Perfect Rustic Wedding Venue!

    I cannot recommend this venue enough! The Dappled Willow is a quiet venue with 2 beautiful white barns. The whole venue is so clean and well-maintained. The bride (me!) and bridesmaids stayed in the farmhouse on the property the night before the wedding, and it was just magical! The place was perfect for pictures on the wedding day. I cannot recommend the venue or Callie enough...she is so responsive and helpful, and I still can't believe just how perfect our wedding day was here!
