Winter wedding

We decided to book our wedding ceremony at the chapel in the museum village. Cozy, quaint, and memorable place, so unique no decorations were needed. The celebration took place at the Lakeview room inside the museum's main building. Lisa and her team were very professional and available to answer my questions and accommodate my requests. VERY AFFORDABLE venue. Highly recommended.

Charming Rustic Venue Turns Magical at Night

Majority of our guests were from out of town and they couldn't say enough about how charming the space was. And what a place to take photographs! The bridal party took over the hotel and were married in the gazebo across the path followed by a parade (complete with drums and trumpets) processed to the 1915 barn (about a seven minute stroll) where the reception took place. Staff was accommodating and helpful and the whole event went off without a hitch.

Best Day Ever

We booked Midway Village for both our ceremony and reception, and it was such a great decision. This entire venue is perfect for weddings! Not only was the venue beautiful and versatile, but Lias, the rental manager was always helpful, easy to work with, and super responsive through the entire process. We highly recommend Midway Village to anyone looking for a venue with a smooth booking, planning, and day-of experience!
