What to say. So many wonderful things about Josephina Event Venue. Large area for outside wedding and inside the barn is beautiful. If you are looking for out in the country barn venue Josephina should be in the running.
The Josephina is one of our favorite places to shoot, there are so many options for different looks to get wether it is a country feel, or rustic. The accommodations for the girls getting ready and the guys getting ready are so convenient so you aren't driving all around to get ready, and the anticipation of knowing your soon to be husband is just barley a half a mile away from you getting ready as well. Every time we have shot pictures at their location for a wedding everything has went so smooth and the pictures are just breathtaking. They are always making improvements to their location as well making it more and more up to date with what is popular! We love working with them and hope you look at their venue as a possible option, you will not regret it!
