Steve and Desa Osborn originally purchased the land that supports this venue to build a barn to house Steve’s tractor, Matilda, and eventually a home. After trying to find a space for their son’s rehearsal dinner, they decided to create their own rustic, yet elegant event venue. The barn was created with materials sourced from the property, and now stands as a place where “memories are made and dreams come true.”

Our daughter's wedding 4/27/19
I'm not sure I can express how thrilled, blessed, grateful we are to have found Desa and Steve Osborn and RedGates. From our first visit to the day of our daughter's wedding, it was all perfect! I do, however, have to give God the credit for the perfect weather :-) This was our first wedding to plan so we were quite anxious about all of it. Desa was always so responsive, had wonderful suggestions, including vendors, and had such a way of making me feel things were always on track and nothing to worry about, and ending every conversation and message with "remember to breathe!". She always made us feel like my daughter's wedding was as special for her as it was for us. Her husband, Steve, busy in the back ground, keeping the grounds manicured and neat, etc (and there is a lot included in that etc). Wonderful couple!! I cannot recommend this venue enough. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Exactly what we were looking for. Wouldn't change a thing!Sent on 07/20/2019
