    The Most Amazing Day Of Our Lives, Thanks To The Most Incredible People

    My wife and I had our wedding here a little less than two weeks ago and we are still in absolute awe of our entire experience with Hayloft. From the beginning of our engagement in 2020 until the day itself, Jeni and her team made planning our day so simple and made us feel so comfortable. We would come into a planning meeting with a million questions and they would all be answered before we even had the chance to ask them!

    The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. We were lucky enough to have the perfect weather for our day so that all of the features could be utilized (horseshoes, cornhole, etc.), but even if we had bad weather I think we would have enjoyed our time just as much. The barn is so spacious that dinner and dancing never felt cramped, and the whole team kept everything gorgeous throughout the night. All options for vendors that Jeni provides (florists, caterers, etc.) are trusted companies that Hayloft has worked with in the past, and it makes such a big difference in how smooth the day runs.

    We already miss Jeni, Alyssa & the whole Hayloft team SO much and could not be more thankful for helping us create the perfect day! We also recommend renting the cottage for the nights before and after the wedding. The minimal travel made everything so much easier. We started our marriage on the most amazing note, and we can't wait to come back and visit!

    Absolutely breath taking place for a wedding

    This venue was absolutely wonderful, my daughter's wedding day was beautiful. When there were a few " oh no what do we do moments" the staff was quick to step in and help with our needs. All of our guest have repeated several times to me what a fantastic time they had at my daughter's wedding. The grounds were absolutely beautiful which helped to make the wedding day breath taking. Go meet the staff and you will have a wonderful experience.

    Hi Wendy: Thank you so much for the kind words. It was a fantastic day and it was a lot of fun helping you and your daughter plan the wedding. So glad everyone had a great time. Great memories.

    Beautiful Venue

    This venue was so beautiful in its own way we barley had to decorate due to its own rustic settings. The owner Jeni was a pleasure to work with. Not only did she own the venue but she acted as a wedding planner as well and had any and everything covered. She created a time sheet for the big day to make sure everything and everyone stayed on track.

    HayLoft in the Grove's reply:

    J&D - What a great day. Everyone here at the HayLoft had such a nice time working with both of you (and your son!) on all of the details of your wedding. We enjoyed getting to know you. The day was a perfect day full of fun, dancing and good times. Stop by and say "hi" when you are in our area. We'd love to see you again.
