    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 !

    We had an incredible day for our wedding and loved that this location was in our hometown! We were able to have a rehearsal the night before and got the venue the day of early in the morning to decorate and get ready. The cleaning people came and gave us a rundown of what we needed to do and were very helpful. The venue had everything we needed to decorate and for using the kitchen and areas to get ready in. As you can see from the pictures, we had an amazing day!

    Amazing venue!

    Words can’t describe how wonderful our day was spent at this beautiful venue. Spacious, beautiful and love the areas for the bride and groom to get ready in. The main barn is jaw dropping and made the night perfect. And the fact that everything is all in one location - simple and stress free!

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!
