My daughter Katelyn and her now husband Todd, chose this venue for their wedding on Oct 21st, 2017. I must say that Paula and Carl (owners) were so supportive and just truly lovely people. The farm is gorgeous and so very accommodating. We didn't want for a thing. One of the best parts is that we were able to decorate the pavilion the day before and boy, did that relieve a lot of our stress because we did it all ourselves. Paula even was on her 4 wheeler to take Katelyn's great Aunt and Uncle down to the wedding because they were late and frazzled and were afraid they were going to miss the ceremony! How is that for service? You will not go wrong if you choose this beautiful heartwarming venue!!! I am so happy they did!

Working with Paula and Carl were the best part of our wedding planning process. This was the first venue we visited and knew as soon as we met Paula and Carl and saw their beautiful property, we just KNEW this was where we wanted to get married. From the date we visited to the date of our wedding was a year and a half. As you can imagine, I had a ton of questions as the planning process was happening and Paula was the best and so quick to respond. Even up to the week of, I was emailing/calling to make sure I knew everything I needed to know. On the day of, Paula and Carl were WONDERFUL! They made everything so easy and so stress free. I honestly cannot remember a single problem that went wrong that day, and they were pivotal to that success. Easily the nicest most accommodating couple you could ever meet, and you can just tell this is a passion for them. The property is absolutely stunning, and guests and family could not stop complimenting on how much they loved it!! If you are looking for a gorgeous, stress free location for your wedding, look no further!!
