    Everything I need and more!

    Elizabeth and Lucy, the owners, are extremely accommodating and kind. If you want to feel like a bridal princess, they will make sure that happens from the first moment you visit. I've needed to meet their multiple times to take more pictures, show my florist, show my fiance, etc. and the wedding is still a few months away, but they have been helpful in showing me and my crew every single time. They have been prompt and basically make you feel like you're their number one priority. I know that is something that many other brides do not get to experience, so I'm very greatly. Oh and the venue itself is an absolute DREAM. The mountains in the background, the horses (adorably named Cornbread and Buttermilk) the pristine pond photo opp, and the clean, modern barn that seems to have been created from the barn wedding dreams I've had all my life. Looking inside the barn form the outside you can see the string lights all the way down, creating such a romantic atmosphere. One of my favorite parts of this venue is the many accessories and decorations they have and will let you use at no extra charge. SO many venues will charge you for every little sign, box, etc that you want to use. I can't wait to get married and party all night at this beautiful venue!
