    Wedding Celebration

    The Bonner Barn was a perfect venue for our son’s wedding celebration. We had 90 guests but had seating for 100. It comfortably accommodated 12 tables, a bar, appetizer station, cookie table and a gathering space for a receiving line. The food and food service were very good and our guests loved the cheeses and appetizers as well as the full course meal. The staff onsite was very attentive, professional and gave great suggestions to accommodate all situations before and during the event including use of technical equipment for a slide show. I would highly recommend a casual or formal event at this delightful venue. It is a hidden gem in our community!
