    An Amazing Venue

    We originally found The 228 online and knew that we had to go see. (Although we knew that it was the place we wanted just from the pictures.)

    Maria and Sharon were very accommodating since day one. They worked with us all the way through. Such as deciding color schemes, decorations, vendors and planning.

    For the venue, it is a beautiful red barn with eye catching wooden interior and a high ceiling. We also used their main stairs and gazebo for some amazing pictures. They have plenty of parking for you and your guests. (We had about 60 guests). There is also a ramp on the side of the barn for handicapped guests.

    As the groom, me and my groomsman enjoyed the firepit at night the most. My wife fell in love with their large farmhouse tables.

    My family went through many unfortunate events in the past year and The 228 helped us pick our family up and have a beautiful night of celebration.

    We highly recommend looking into The 228 for your next venue!
