About The Mercantile

The Mercantile is a charming farm and barn wedding venue located in Mount Sterling, Ohio. This family-owned-and-operated property is ideal for couples wishing to make their special day truly their own. This venue offers versatile spaces, comprehensive wedding packages, and beautiful surroundings to complete your special day.

Facilities and Capacity

This property was formerly a warehouse and office space for a local construction company. Dan and Barb, owners and operators of The Mercantile, lovingly refurbished this space to make it an ideal wedding venue. The Courtyard is a verdant space that is perfect for an open-air wedding ceremony. Here, you and your beloved can exchange your vows against a natural backdrop surrounded by your nearest and dearest. The Wine Garden is a wonderful location for a relaxed cocktail hour. This space boasts three cozy fire pits, a covered deck, and outdoor lounge furniture. The Veranda is the gem at the heart of this venue. This multi-use space offers a covered event area that is suitable for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or rustic wedding reception. For larger indoor receptions, the Vintage Barn offers ample space. Here, two event areas provide a blank canvas for you to imbue with your envisioned event style. This space offers complete freedom to creative couples, who can choose to implement their own event layout here. This venue also boasts dedicated get-ready rooms for both sides of the wedding party, a makeup room, and a catering staging area.

Services Offered

The administration at The Mercantile is proud to provide a comprehensive two-day wedding rental package to couples wishing to host their special day here. This weekend rental package gives you access to the venue from Friday afternoon and allows you ample time for your rehearsal and event setup. The events team here aims to take care of all of your event needs, including venue staff, parking attendants, linens, tables and chairs, and much more. They are happy to allow you to choose the caterer of your choice and they allow outside alcohol to be served on the premises.

    Made our wedding day!

    Don't sleep on this venue! Barb and Dan (the owners) are two of the most amazing people we have ever met and our wedding day would not have been complete without them. This wedding venue is absolutely stunning!!! Every detail was including from the ceremony and reception site down to all of the decor for the wedding (chairs, table linens, centerpieces, ceremony site decor, and much more). The separate groom and bridal suite made it so convenient to get ready the morning of and they were beautiful. When we had to postpone our wedding from May to September, Barb and Dan went out of their way to make sure dates were available, and to help in any way they can with us moving forward. They brought my fall wedding dream to life and we could not be more grateful. We will recommend this venue time and time again.
