An absolutely amazing experience!
This venue was nothing less than stunning. My husband and I had the greatest experience here and we are so happy we found The Homestead 1835 to celebrate our special day. It was the perfect place for a country/ rustic themed wedding and Lori and Dave (the owners) made us feel right at home and went above and beyond for us the entire time. If youre looking for a barn type wedding and an amazing experience, The Homestead 1835 is definitely the place for you!Sent on 11/05/2019

The Homestead was the most amazing wedding venue for which we could have ever wished! We were from out of town and Lori and her team were fabulous to ensure that every detail and vendor we picked was perfect for what we wanted! She helped us every step along the way and answered all of my million questions. It was such a relief to not have to worry as I knew they had it under control! We had considered a wedding planner but with all the assistance Lori and her team provided it wasn't needed. Everything went smoothly due to the Homestead's experience and professionalism. They went above and beyond! When I had an eyelash malfunction she went to the store to buy glue to fix it, so the crisis was immediately adverted! I did not have to worry about anything that day except having fun! She even helped arrange a surprise wedding gift to my husband of his refurbished high school truck and it went off without a hitch! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue and Lori and her team! Everyone has said that this was one of the best wedding venues they had ever been too and I have to agree! I would highly recommend this venue to everyone to make magnificent memories for a lifetime!Sent on 10/26/2019

Wedding Day 10-5-19
Where do I even begin? The Homestead 1835 is beyond expectations. Lori is a great wedding coordinator (also owner of The Homestead). We just got married in early October this year and I can not stress how beautiful and perfect our day was. Guests couldn't stop raving about the venue and asking "how did you find this place?" Lori is quick at responses and questions. She made is super easy for my husband and I to relax and enjoy the day. Her husband Dave is also the sweetest guy! They make a great team! The food it excellent, the venue is beautiful, Lori and Dave are awesome- what more could you want? I highly recommend checking this place out especially if you are looking for a rustic, outdoor, laid back barn vibe. The Homestead will forever hold a special place in DJ and I's hearts! Thank you sooo much Lori and Dave!Sent on 11/04/2019
