    Magical Barn Wedding

    We had an absolutely wonderful experience at this wedding venue. It sits on top of the most beautiful and picturesque piece of land I can imagine and is nestled between two of the best rock climbing areas in the world. The venue was pure magic, and the Venturas were extremely helpful and accommodating during the entire process. Highly recommended!!

    Our wedding was simply perfect because of this venue. We had everything we could have ever wanted for spending the weekend in the house with our family and friends that traveled all over for the big day. Checking in and out was a breeze and the views were breath taking. We had our ceremony outside in the shade and went inside the house for the reception. We rented the whole house to accomadate all our guests and we had plenty of room to make food and not be stressed out. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Just be aware that it is hard to park so I would encourage your guests to carpool from Miguel's. There's also many stairs in case you have family members who have a hard time getting around. My grandmothers did just fine, but it's definitely something to keep in mind. Otherwise this venue is affordable and a wonderful place to have a simple wedding of 50-75 guests.
