I don’t have the words to fully express the gratitude I have for the Homestead family. The facility is immaculate, land is gorgeous, and there’s an outdoor tent with heated floors that is perfect for chilly days. The venue itself is a solid 10/10 but I would be remiss to continue on without mentioning the humble, generous, hard working family running around behind the scenes to give you and your guests the BEST experience ever.
A month before our wedding day, our venue canceled. I should mention, that was our 3rd venue, thanks to covid, and our 4th plan. In desperation, I posted a “SOS” post to a FB page seeking a venue. Christianna immediately reached out to tell me they had a cancelation on our date and could accommodate us. Being an outdoorsy person, I was hooked immediately upon viewing photos of the facility and land! We went out to the barn after hours and met Sue. Sue immediately empathized with our situation and offered us such an incredible package to accommodate our 2 party covid plan. She also put us in touch with the caterer, provided florals for us, connected me with an amazing makeup artist and handled all of our decor!
Flash forward to the day of..... I had Kaela do my makeup and I have never looked so beautiful in my life! What’s more impressive is that we never had time for a trial run and she nailed the look I was going for on the first try. My mom and sister made a last second decision to also get makeup and she did all of us without hesitation. I should mention, this sweet soul is pregnant and I’m sure it wasn’t the most comfortable thing for her to be on her feet so long with a mask. She was just so sweet and so very talented! We had Emma make beautiful signs for us because we didn’t have any. Nobody asked for this, she just took it upon herself to bless us with gorgeous calligraphy! She also helped serve food and cleaned up all those dishes!! Daniel was awesome behind the bar ALL. DAY. LONG. without complaints or seeming tired or anything! Guests loved him and he handled our drink menu flawlessly! He even allowed my husband and I to light the bonfire together, such a special moment! Christianna, my heart melted upon viewing our photos and seeing her behind the scenes. She helped me with my train as I didn’t have a Maid of Honor. Nobody asked her to do this and quite frankly, I don’t think I even noticed until I looked at the photos. I can’t believe this kindhearted woman went so far as to play music at our ceremony spot, guide us along, help with my train, drive us and family around... basically she was 12 places at a time making sure things were perfect. I hadn’t even met her before this day. She did not have to help with all of those little details but our day was perfect because she did. Sue, I have no words to describe Sue. From the day we met she took us under her wing. The day of the wedding she was everywhere at once, gracefully putting stuff out, taking stuff down, sanitizing, checking on guests and staff... she ensured both parties were having the best time! She provided so much decor that she had salvaged from previous weddings since we didn’t have much to work with. When it was time for us to leave, she was still there helping us pack stuff up to take with us. She didn’t need to do that! She easily could have just watched us leave and we wouldn’t have thought anything of it.
The best part about all of this is that all these people are a family. And when you book Homestead Blessings Barn, you book the family. I would even go so far as to say you become family to them. Every single one of them cares so deeply about YOU! They make you feel like you’re the only wedding going on. They go out of their way to do extra little things that you won’t even think of just to make the day perfect. I was sad leaving on my wedding night. Not because the wedding was over, but because I didn’t want to say goodbye! Sue, Christianna, Emma, Kaela, Daniel, little Colton and little Celia... I love you all and am so blessed to have met you! Thank you for giving us the BEST day ever!!

absolute dream venue.
The venue alone is something out of a fairy tale. It was everything we could have ever dreamed of and it was a pretty simple decision to book the venue after our first visit. We knew that even if nothing else went well, the venue would be beautiful. What we didn't know after our first visit, but would come to find out over the course of our planning & our big day, was how the PEOPLE behind the venue were what truly made our day such a dream...Sent on 12/02/2019
Planning a wedding is no easy task. We were lucky in that we knew some of the vendors we were hiring on a personal level, which made it easier for us to put our trust in them for our big day. We did not know Christianna or Susan prior to booking Homestead Blessings as our Wedding venue-but they quickly felt like family. It was so refreshing to work with such kind, genuine, thoughtful, & professional people! They have experienced a lot of weddings over the years and were able to help us with all of the daunting little details/decisions we struggled with.
We are amazed by how much work they put into each of their events. They didn't only treat us like family, but our guests as well. We had several guests comment to us later how much they loved all of the staff at Homestead! The bartender helped the groomsmen when they battled to figure out their boutonnieres. Christianna helped me with my dress when the bustle loop broke right before our grand entrance, Susan and her husband worked late into the night to get all of our belongings in one place so it was easy for us take care of the next day. They exceeded our expectations in every way.
If you want a wedding/event in a beautiful/dreamy setting and want to work with genuinely good people, this is the perfect place.
Even if you aren't sure what you want, you should schedule a meeting with these lovely people and they will help you every step of the way!

Pleasure to work with.
The whole family is just a joy to be around. They let me change things several times and always had a smile on there faces. The bar tenders were friendly an awesome at making drinks and dealing with the guests. They also clean up everything except the things you bring. Personally I have never been around a better group of peopleSent on 07/22/2019
