Magical Venue with Fantastic Host
I held my wedding at Gratitude and Grace on 10/13/18. We could not have asked for a better outcome. Ron is gracious himself and more then willing to help and accommodate when and where he can. It rained the morning of and Ron was out there helping to spread hey and dry off whatever surfaces he could. He also sent us items we left there which I thought was very nice. All in all it is a beautiful location that is personal and very intimate. It is also convenient being that you stay in the house that is on the same property as the venue where you hold the reception and ceremony. If you are looking for a barn wedding you will not be disappointed with Gratitude and Grace.Sent on 11/28/2018
