Home to mature landscaping, pond with gazebo and authentic barn, couples will fall in love with the tranquility and simplicity of this unique place.

Great Customer Service
I attended the open house and a tour of this beautiful venue. Brenda and Debbie were extremely helpful and educational. They took the time to explain all of my wedding options in detail and were very accommodating in finding a day/time to complete a contract. Everything has been easy sailing! I would highly recommend! Definitely a must see venue!Sent on 01/03/2021

She hit my guests, threw water at them, stole my photos...but the barn is beautiful
I was the first wedding at Whispering Dreams:Sent on 08/10/2020
Leading up to the wedding, Brenda - the owner, was very kind and cooperative with me, as I was planning my wedding from out of state. She insisted on having no contract, that everything would be easygoing - that should have been my first sign - but I went onward.
The day of the wedding was beautiful. Her farm is beautiful, she had allowed me to come decorate the barn the day before and everything was perfect.
I didn’t learn until a few days after the wedding, that apparently my ten year old cousin was throwing rocks in the field to see how far he could throw (he stopped when he was told, he is just a kid, and my mother picked up the rocks) however Brenda did not that think was adequate, she apparently smacked the ten year old. When my god father approached her about it, she threw water on him in his suit. I had a stressful week - I let it go.
A week went by and my photographer had messaged me asking me if Brenda was allowed to use the photos she took for publicity reasons - after everything that happened, I said no. Screen shots of these photos later appeared on my timeline from Brenda. I decided to vaguely post to my own timeline that I was uncomfortable with other people sharing my photos - not mentioning anybody by name. Brenda privately messaged me and told me that she "thought it was understood that she could use my pictures.” I didn’t reply, again, I let it go.
Tonight, Brenda messaged me asking to review her venue. I messaged her back about the events that had transpired and about photos - she told me that she was “sorry I felt that way," denied hitting the kid (multiple guests witnessed it), and denied posting my photographer's photos (they were still blatantly on her timeline).
So my review of the venue: it is beautiful; however, the venue owner: hit a child during my reception, threw water at my guests, stole my photographers photos without permission, and was just overall rude and disrespectful as soon as the check cleared.
