    What's not to love about this venue and its owners!

    Running Mare Wedding Venue-
    What's not to love about this venue and its owners: Austin and Robyn!
    Our son and daughter-in-law got married at this beautiful outdoor venue in April 2019. The farm yard and lawn was meticulously manicured and Robyn has planted many flowers and pots, that will only get more beautiful as they continue to grow through the season.

    Any wedding party will love their roomy changing accommodations. The bride and bridesmaids will adore Austin's remodeling of the barn loft; with beautiful varnish hickory floors and large windows that open a flood gate of sunshine into the loft. The groom and his groomsmen have their own spacious retreat cottage across the lake with a large deck to enjoy the stunning views of this property.

    Here, you don't have any noise from city traffic or trains, that we noticed when viewing several other wedding venues. When we arrived to set-up that Sunday morning, looking out over the lake the peaceful tranquility of God's beautiful creation gave a calmness to the busy day ahead.

    You will enjoy working with Robyn and Austin. They are very professional and personable; as well as providing a contract that doesn't take a lawyer to understand. Their family managed the parking of the wedding guests and bringing them from the parking area to the wedding/reception site. They are pleasantly present to assist if needed with concerns, but not hovering nor intrusive in any way. God bless them; weddings are stressful and having great people to work with, helps alleviates stress.

    Thank you Robyn & Austin for helping us create a beautiful wedding memory.

    Best venue ever!

    Running Mare Farm is so beautiful! This venue is amazing! The owners, Robin and Austin are great to work with. They are very flexible and dependable. They have a lot of amenities you can use.
