We LOVED the Barn at Howard Creek Farm!
Absolutely GORGEOUS wedding venue, and the owners, are incredibly kind, flexible, and professional! The ceremony site is placed perfectly in front of a jaw-dropping view of the mountains, the barn is ridiculously beautiful and great for mountain modern weddings, and the bridal suite and groomsmen hideaway are so unique and comfortable. Highly recommend this venue to any couple getting married!Sent on 10/20/2020
