Absolutely stunning barn!! Darlene and Gail were so wonderful and accommodating. I was calling around on a Friday afternoon looking for a place to take my engagement photos the next day (my original location fell through) They both called me back within minutes of leaving a message and arranged everything for me within an hour. Gail went out of her way to meet us at the barn and waiting almost 3 hours for us to finish. Great customer service! The barn was beautiful and thanks to they, my engagement photos turned out amazing!Sent on 03/17/2015
