This place is beautiful! I had been looking at barns to have my wedding and found nothing else that compared, The Josephina was exactly what I was looking for. it also had much more to offer than other venues such as, tables,chairs, linens, an adorable vintage tub for drinks, and Bride and groom suites, for cheaper, no extra fees. The staff was super helpful and sweet. So excited to have my upcoming wedding here!Sent on 02/23/2015

A great start to our wedding,
From the first call I made to this venue, staff was extremely responsive and helpful. I live hours away from this venue, so being communicative was a big bonus for me. They called ahead to give directions, gave my family a personal tour, and answered all my questions with ease. Looking forward to creating our wedding here !Sent on 04/13/2019

The Josephina Event Venue is one of our highly venues to photograph at. Why worry about more than one wedding taking place at the same time as your event? This venue is run by an experienced staff providing organization and attention to detail for your day. The decor is rustic and neutral enough to coordinate with most color schemes. Additionally the outdoor spaces provide a gorgeous back drop for your wedding photos and gives you the option of having an outdoor ceremony. The Josephina is an excellent choice for your memorable wedding or special event!
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!
