    Beautiful, Flexible Venue

    We loved The Journey Home because we were able to spend the night in the house the night before, and my parents stayed the night after as well. It made it so convenient to be right on site, especially while we stayed up late and got up early getting everything prepared. Tara was so helpful, she even helped us unload our cars of decorations and food when we got there to set up. It was pretty cold that day, but with patio heaters, it wasn’t so bad.
    They don’t have required vendors, so we were able to provide our own food and everything, which was very convenient. The venue is gorgeous, too.

    The Journey Home is beautiful and very accommodating! The property has several options for ceremony and reception sites, with the option to stay the entire weekend (great for out of town family and bridal party members)!! The management is great to work with and will go to great lengths to achieve what the client is looking for. I would recommend The Journey Home to anyone looking for a wedding venue!

    Our wedding at The Journey Home was perfect! We were able to rent the grounds for the whole weekend and have our bridal party stay in the house. We were able to set up the day before to make the wedding day have as little stress as possible. Cindy (manager) was so supportive and accommodating! Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the house, barn, and overall area was. It was better than what we dreamed of!
