    The Best Venue Experience!

    Vista at walnut hill is the total package for a wedding from start to finish. Fred and Mary Lou were right there from the very first inquiry call and following tour to guide you each step of the way. I knew from the first time I spoke to Fred on the phone when calling a list of potential venues to gather info that he was different. I was blown away by his knowledge, experience, and professionalism. Fred was available by phone and happy to help any time we had a question in the months leading up to the wedding. He was a wealth of knowledge and advice about different ideas couples had tried in the past that worked and didn’t work. The location and barn itself are beautiful and there are many great photo spots. Fred provided a notebook of preferred vendors, décor options, and tons of other useful planning information at the first tour. This information was so helpful and took a lot of the leg work out of finding vendors for the wedding and reception. You can trust that if a preferred vendor is listed in his notebook, they are going to do an outstanding job. On site, the barn is decorated with beautiful antiques throughout and in addition you are allowed to use décor items from their extensive collection of lanterns, centerpieces, signs, linens, arbors, etc.
    Fred has so much experience in wedding planning and anticipated things that we hadn’t even thought of. On the wedding day, Fred was overseeing all of the moving parts and even coordinating certain things we had forgotten. He found me and asked me where the carriage was going to pick up the bride and then showed me the different locations and what he recommended. He then went and arranged this with the carriage driver. The cake and cupcakes were dropped off by the bakery but not set up by them as planned, so he quickly jumped into action finding a solution. He was calmly but swiftly walking through and making sure everything fell into place like it was supposed to. This was a huge relief because the last little bit of time leading up to the wedding was a total whirlwind for the family and wedding party so we were not available to help with all of those things.
    Fred had shared that the venue idea started after they hosted their own daughter’s wedding there and it is evident that their goal is to treat each bride and her wedding as if it were their own family’s special day. They do not overlook any details, and their availability and willingness to help make it the most personalized and perfect day. The level of commitment and personalization that Fred and Mary Lou provide at Vista Walnut Hill surpasses anything I have ever experienced! Vista at Walnut Hill made it truly a dream come true wedding.

    Vista At Walnut Hill

    Vista at Walnut Hill
    We remember the first time we walked up to the barn on our tour day. We loved the opening of the barn doors, the spacious floor, and the beautiful lights inside. It instantly felt magical.
    Looking up, you see the stairs lead to the second floor. Having two floors allowed for a bigger party, but it also led your eyes to see how big the barn is inside. The tables and dance floor were decorated nicely. There were spaces for each part of the big day such as food, cake, bar, dancing, and the places for the bridal and groom’s party to get dressed.
    Walking outside was a scene to remember. You have your grassy area that has a slight decline so people in the back can still see because they are sitting higher. The wooded area made a nice background for pictures.
    Speaking of pictures— Vista at Walnut Hill is gorgeous. When the sun was out, we caught the fields and woods. We had the big barn in the background of our bridal party coming down the aisle. Nearing dusk, our photographer, Leigh Walther, was able to capture amazing photos with Vista’s picturesque land.
    Our guests had room to move around whether that was inside the barn or outside. That was comforting as well especially if we knew it would rain. We both felt confident that the wedding would carry on without skipping a beat. Knowing that we could have the wedding inside the barn, if it rained, helped relieve that “what if it rains” feeling.

    It just felt right. With everything that we loved about the barn and the scenery, there was something more that helped our decision.
    Meeting Fred and Mary Lou was the mic drop. If you just visit to meet this couple, then its a tour well spent. After meeting them, we knew we would be treated like family.
    And, what’s so great, is we can visit the Vista at Walnut Hill for future pictures. This means we can visit for our anniversaries or another occasion. We love this ! We can go back every Sept 18 or around that time and visit where we got married!
    Fred and Mary Lou are very accommodating, quick to answer, affordable, and they go above and beyond to make your day special. Did we mention that they will even help with decorating and clean up?
    This venue will not disappoint. And, it’s a great place for a wedding and reception all at one location.
    It was a perfect day.

    Highly recommend!!

    My mom and I stumbled upon this out-of-the-way spot as we were searching for my perfect venue. We needed a large space to accommodate an equally large guest list, and I really wanted to be able to have an outdoor ceremony with indoor reception. We went to tour with Fred, and I was sold. It is such a magical place... the pictures don't even do it justice. The barn has beautiful lighting, antique furniture and features, and the balcony is so uniquely stunning. The surrounding land connected to the property is equally gorgeous, and my bridal portraits and wedding photos were so perfect! It's such a nice, quiet, country area, which I loved. The best part of the whole package? Fred. He worked with us closely to get exactly what we wanted, reminded us of things we hadn't thought of, and went out of his way to make sure everything was just as I dreamed. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
