I attended a wedding at this venue in 2013 and told myself, “wow this is gorgeous, THIS is where I want my wedding.” Years later and I’m planning my wedding at this venue! Such a gorgeous place. A mix between rustic and elegant. The staff are so sweet to work with. We are so excited to be getting married at Historic Acres!Sent on 04/04/2019

Historic Acres is absolutely perfect. It was the only venue I looked at and I was completely sold. I was not big on the barn look that is so popular right now but also wanted something with more character than a hotel ballroom or something like that. The pavilion at Historic Acres, where the majority of receptions are held, is perfect because you can really make it work with any style, any colors, in any season. I was originally only having my reception there but, COVID!, so my ceremony was moved there as well, and this was actually a blessing in disguise. I was worried about weather for our ceremony and not being able to use the barn space (where rained out ceremonies are typically held) because of the capacity limits, so I opted to use the pavilion as our ceremony space as well and it was gorgeous and perfect for COVID because it opens up on 3 sides so it still has an outside feel. The staff (along with my other A-team of vendors - more on that later) did an amazing job of flipping the pavilion between our ceremony and reception. My cocktail hour was a tad longer because of this but that worked out great also. The grounds are beautiful, so guests were able to walk around, take pictures, play some cornhole, and mingle during this time without getting bored or feeling crowded. Back to my amazing team of vendors - most of them I got from a list of suggested vendors that Historic Acres actually provides you when you book. That was super helpful because I was overwhelmed with where to even start with finding the right vendors. The staff at Historic Acres was also great, from the initial walkthrough to the day of our wedding they were helpful and accommodating. Another great thing HAH has to offer is the farmhouse - which makes for beautiful getting ready pictures. Only regret I had was not staying there overnight! Overall, I highly recommend!Sent on 10/12/2020
