    Beyond thankful for Rafters Venue!

    Rafters Venue was absolutely the perfect wedding reception venue. More than enough space for our 300 guests and the decor and feel of the venue was exactly what we wanted. We kept our reception simple, elegant, and with enough space for a packed dance floor all night long! Marybeth was unbelievably kind to my husband and me and for that I could never thank her enough. Not to mention the hotel all of our family and friends stayed at was 0.3miles (a 2min drive) away from the venue which made it easy for all of our guests at the end of the evening! If you're considering Rafters Venue I would absolutely recommend going with them! Quality and care of their service was wonderful as we were not just treated as "another couple", but showed so much kindness and respect. It is because of Rafters Venue that we were able to have the wedding reception of our dreams! I wish I could live the day over and over again. Thank you, Rafters!!! We love you!!

    Above and beyond!!!!

    MaryBeth at Rafter’s made our day amazing. Our original date was 5/9 but we had to postpone due to COVID. Two weeks before our new wedding date our state set a 25 person indoor occupancy limit and MaryBeth (+ Brillman’s Rental Barn) turned their outdoor garden into a 110 person outdoor reception. It was beautiful. Rafters made our wedding day the best day!
