    Our Dreams Came True

    As you can imagine, planning a wedding during a pandemic was pretty stressful. We faced some challenges having to change our date and then our original venue fell through 2 weeks before our wedding date... then the Appel Inn made our dreams come true when they took us on.

    The Appel Inn was SO perfect. We're so glad we ended up having our wedding here. My bridesmaids and I got ready in the "she-shed" all morning. It was spacious, filled with natural lighting that bounced off the white wood, and had space for changing into our dresses. Oh and it even has air conditioning!

    They have a beautiful wooden boardwalk that leads right from the she-shed to the ceremony space. When it was time, we walked right out to the ceremony. The space itself has a lovely clear covered roof so it works rain or shine. It includes a rustic wooden beam for the arbor that you can decorate however you'd like. The white pebbled flooring was unique and beautiful.

    The large circular reception hall is breathtaking. So spacious and grand with its high ceilings and rustic feel. The room is full of glass windows and doors to allow lots of natural light. The doors lead out to a very large wrap around porch where we danced the night away safely spread out from one another.

    After the sun goes down, the property is full of twinkling lights in the trees, on the deck and on the tall beams. It was seriously so beautiful, our guests couldn't stop complimenting the venue. I 100% recommend this space. The owners are very friendly, accommodating and went above and beyond for us.

    Great time at the Appel Inn

    We booked the Appel Inn more than a year in advance of my daughter's wedding. Throughout the whole process they were absolutely great. Laurie helped us and our caterer (Seasons Catering) set up the gathering space and ensured that everything was just right. Then on the "big day" they made sure everything ran smoothly for both the wedding and the reception, right down to the last detail. I would highly recommend this beautiful venue for any reception or wedding and reception.
