A quant farmhouse decorated in a classic look that is timeless. Walking from the front porch of the John
Oliver Michael House you will meander along an antique, brick pathway leading you to many options for
your choosing for your ceremony and reception.
Beautiful oaks surrounding the farmhouse and "Oliver's Nest. Some of the oaks are draped with outdoor
lighting showcasing a beautiful outdoor setting for your ceremony and reception.
Oliver's Nest, a fun place to host your reception (should you prefer the indoors). We named it such as it
sits nestled in the shade of beautiful oaks. Once indoors, it's absolutely magical:
Hanging pendants and chandeliers.
Draped lighting from the wooden beams.
Black rod iron sconces along the white, washed walls.
A beautiful antique, brick ?replace.
Perfect for any Wedding Ceremony and/or Reception.
Our Wedding Arbor is cascaded in wisteria vines and showcased with strings of lights making a beautiful
setting for your ceremony. Or you may use the arbor for other uses making it unique for your personal style.
Everything is surrounded with ?elds of tall grasses (sometimes with a few hay bales in the distance).
