Perfect venue for our best day ever!
Sonshine Barn won our hearts over the minute we stepped foot on the property. We are so glad we chose this place to host our wedding. It’s been about 2 months since we got married and people are still constantly talking about how fun our weekend was! We had a great experience with all of the women that worked with us and having a day-of coordinator made our day flow so nicely! We wish we could go back and relive it all one more time.Sent on 11/10/2019

This venue was perfect. The barn, farmhouse, and clubhouse had everything we needed for an amazing wedding weekend. All of our guests raved about how beautiful and fun the venue was too. Not to mention, the staff is wonderful. Veronica did an amazing job with decorations- she captured my vision perfectly and was so nice. Amber was very organized and took so much stress of our shoulders as our “day of coordinator”. She was always available for questions while planning and kept our wedding day going smoothly!Sent on 07/31/2019
