    My husband and I got married at the Duportail House on June 26th, 2018. We were married in the barn, had Hors d'Oeuvres on the patio, and dinner in the two dining rooms. Let me start by saying that it was an amazing venue for a wedding, and Kate (who is the events coordinator) was awesome to work with. Kate made sure that everything was set before the wedding, and the day of the wedding, she was there to help everything run smoothly!

    We were going for a rustic theme, so the barn was perfect for us! For a while, we weren't too sure if we wanted to use the barn though, because with the wedding being in June, we were afraid that it would be too hot (there is no A/C in the barn). We ended up watching the weather the week before and seeing that it was going to be hot but not too hot, so we decided that we would be fine in the barn, and we were! The barn has a concrete floor and partial stone walls, which keeps it a bit cooler. My guests kept saying how beautiful and just downright awesome the barn was!

    After the ceremony, our guests went to the patio for Hors d'Oeuvres and we also had a photo booth there (side note: the photo booth was a huge hit!) to keep guests entertained while my husband and I took photos. After we were done with the photos, we came inside and by that time, the guests had found their tables in the 2 dining rooms. We had a nice buffet style dinner (the food was in the breezeway of the house, you will know what I am talking about if you see the house!). We had about 63 guests, and everyone fit comfortably in the two rooms, and there was still room for people to move around.

    Overall, it is an absolutely beautiful venue! The barn is beautiful, the house is beautiful, and the grounds are beautiful! I would highly recommend this venue!

    This venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding. The grounds and inside the house and barn are stunning. We had a small wedding of 50 people and the size was perfect. That being said, we were at a wedding back in April with over 100 people and that was comfortable too. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how pretty the site was. Kate, the site manger is very knowledgeable and accommodating. One of the things that I love about this venue is that, if the weather doesn't cooperate, you can switch things up seamlessly AND without feeling like you're settling.
