A Magical Venue
Wisteria Cottage & Barn is a unique venue that has a lot to offer. My favorite parts of the venue is the magical garden/forest aspect of it, the decor to choose from to use freely, and the beautiful lighting. Simone and her husband Eric are very friendly and easy to work with. They had a vision, and worked hard to provide a little slice of heaven for your special day. From getting ready in the cottage, to having the ceremony in a open field with white pews and a hand made archway doors, to heading through the twinkle lit bridge into the gorgeous rustic barn. I had a magical wedding and I hope you do too!
Note: The photos I shared are just from my phone and I will share more once they are received from the photographer.Sent on 09/21/2020

My husband and I had our wedding here & it was absolutely perfect. Every single aspect of the house, ceremony space, cocktail hour area, and barn was stunning. The grounds are so beautiful and lush and make for incredible photos! Simone and Eric were helpful, flexible, and understanding when we had to reschedule our original wedding due to COVID-19. They made every effort to make the process seamless and took away so much stress. You can tell Simone & Eric care deeply about making your day as special as you could ever imagine.Sent on 08/18/2020

Simone and Eric were amazing to work with and really made the day go smoothly. They set up all the tables and chairs in the barn, the ceremony site and any other items we had requested to use from their inventory. They also tore down everything from their inventory - making clean up easier on us.Sent on 02/09/2020
The venue is gorgeous and getting ready, ceremony, and reception is all in one place making DIY super easy. The getting ready house had everything you need - full kitchen with a fridge and stove, boys area, girls area (hair & makeup room included), and some.
The barn was a little warm for the reception, but the 2 giant fans they have at the venue really helped. The only complaint was the boys downstairs shower did not have hot water, but Eric apologized and promised to fix it for the next groom.
There are endless places to take photos around the property and they all make for stunning pictures. All of our guests loved the "door wall" and we heard compliments all night of how lovely the property was.
All in all, we had a great day and we would hands down recommend this venue to anyone.
