    Perfect wedding venue

    A 'DREAM COME TRUE' wedding just took place. There is no place like Mellon Acres located in Lawson MO! Susan and Paul's goal is to have a place for fun, family and friendship but they go way beyond that goal! From country/rustic cottages for the night, to the rustic barn or the big red barn, bridge crossing the lake, the waterfall - your dream wedding will come true. We highly recommend MELLON ACRES - go see it and you will be glad you took the time. No words can fully describe what you will see.
