About The Homestead 1835

The Homestead 1835 is a barn wedding venue located in New Carlisle, Indiana. This homey and charming venue has roots as a family-owned property. The land was owned and farmed by Chester and Virginia Szymanski. Chester still resides in the original farmhouse and Chester's daughter, Lori, has transformed the property into a historic wedding destination with her husband, Dave. Together, they present a friendly atmosphere for every wedding event, large or small. They also work with preferred vendors to ensure that each client receives quality recommendations from those that they know and trust.

    My husband and I got married at the Homestead 1835 on August 25th of this year. I do not have enough good things to say about this venue! Lori and Dave, the owners, are an absolute dream to work with. I was the kind of bride who knew exactly what I wanted my wedding to look like and Lori allowed me to make that vision a reality. I was a DIY bride in all aspects and Lori and Dave accommodated for every (crazy) request I made. My guests had an absolute blast and are still raving about our wedding. We live in Chicago and planning from a (small) distance was no problem at all. The food is amazing through their in-house caterer. Although the Homestead team does many, many weddings throughout the year, they make you feel like yours is the most important which is such a tough thing to come across in the wedding industry! The venue is on the more expensive side but for the amount of space, the quality of service, and the AMAZING photo-ops it is worth every penny! We cannot thank the Homestead team enough!

    Absolutely amazing!! My husband and I got married at The Homestead on September 24, 2016. The weather was beautiful, the grounds are magnificent, and the barn is gorgeous. Lori & Dave are wonderful!! They are friendly, professional, and were so helpful throughout the entire process from the very first meeting down to the awesome sparkler send off! My mom and I discovered this venue early on in the wedding planning process and every single venue I saw after that didn't live up to how beautiful The Homestead is. Lori asked me why I wanted my wedding at The Homestead and my reply was I wanted an intimate Hindu/Indian wedding ceremony with a fun, easy-going, outdoor flare to it. What we got was exceptionally more than just that. Getting married here was absolutely my dream wedding- an Indian barn wedding!! My husband's family is from out of state and Lori easily accommodated us with multiple barn visits to show my parents and his parents the grounds. She is knowledgable about the wedding planning process and also served partly as my wedding planner the whole time. She put together a blueprint of my seating chart, a preliminary timeline, and also communicated with several of my other vendors. She is extremely organized and I loved it! She works exclusively with Lasalle Grill in South Bend for catering. All of our guests were impressed with the delicious food and how the chefs were able to add Indian spices to the hors d'oeuvres and the entrees. The two biggest compliments that I still get from our guests about our wedding is how great the venue & the food was. The cocktail hour went smoothly, we had over 200 guests and the one bar inside the barn was more than enough to serve everyone The games like giant Jenga, cornhole, and ring toss were a huge success as well. The fire pit was also a nice place for guests to cozy up to. Choosing The Homestead as our wedding and reception venue was THE BEST decision we made. Just perfect. Thank you so much Lori & Dave!!
