    The best wedding venue

    Literally I cannot imagine having my wedding at any other location. This venue is absolutely beautiful and the owners are amazing. Mitzi did everything she could to help make our day just the way we had always imagined and dreamed of.

    Definitely would recommend!

    Whippoorwill Acres is such a beautiful venue, and the Shipleys were wonderful to work with it! They are sweethearts and were very attentive to our needs, questions and preferences. Their list of recommended vendors made planning easier and helped the day go seamlessly. Their “borrowed room” full of decor was so nice to have access to and made everything even more beautiful. Obviously we loved the venue, and many of our wedding guests even commented on how nice it was and how the Shipleys thought of everything when they built it. Definitely would recommend!

    Booking Whippoorwill will be one of, if not the easiest choices you make when planning a wedding!!

    Whippoorwill is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Every little detail is perfect and was thought out to be just that. Not only is the venue itself perfect, but the Owners and Staff are phenomenal to work with. They go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect as well the guests enjoy themselves. I planned my dream wedding 3 hours away from Whippoorwill, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. My husband and I even booked the venue without a tour first, CRAZY I know. We had heard about Mitzi and Whippoorwill through a friend, and they were spot on with everything.

    Mitzi was always available to answer any questions I had as well as give her professional opinion. I had ideas that I wanted and she made them happen. There are MANY gorgeous and incredible venues to get married at, but the hospitality that is given at Whippoorwill cannot be found anywhere else. Booking Whippoorwill will be one of, if not the easiest choices you make when planning a wedding!!

    The Shipley family is so wonderful and helpful! This past winter, my fiancé and I got engaged. I messaged Mitzi about touring Whippoorwill and she gave our families an amazing tour even though the facility was not yet finished. She was so kind and informative. I loved how honest she was with us. We cannot wait to spend our special day here and continue to work with Mitzi and her family!

    Best Day of Our Lives Made Better

    I really cannot praise Mitzi and the rest of the Shipley family enough. They went above and beyond from the very first day I emailed regarding the venue, to the day after the wedding. Mitzi and Samantha were so kind, helpful, and uplifting during this crazy time of our lives. My husband and I knew that we were in the best of care from the moment Mitzi emailed us (very quickly) when looking for a wedding venue. Mitzi was accommodating in every single aspect of the process. Any weekend we wanted to come check out the venue, she spent time helping us look around and answer any question we had about the venue or giving us advice she had for our big day. The night of the rehearsal dinner, I felt like I had absolutely every base covered because of the help Mitzi and Samantha gave us. Our wedding day was a dream and I mean that in the least cliché way possible because it is so true. From the gorgeous lighting, to the outdoor amenities, to the BRIDAL SUITE, the Shipley family really thought of EVERYTHING when it comes to making your wedding day absolutely perfect. I had no worries about anything because Mitzi and Samantha are truly professionals when it comes to wedding days. I know that every bride who chooses to have her wedding at Whippoorwill Acres will cherish her wedding day for the rest of her life and make the sweetest memories at a little slice of heaven on Earth, Whippoorwill Acres.

    Amazing, Perfect, Flawless, Beautiful..I could go on and on!!

    I could write an entire book about how amazing and perfect this venue, and the owners are, but it would not do them justice at all. I cannot express enough how Whippoorwill Acres went above and beyond to make our big day so special. The venue layout is gorgeous and open creating a space that is not cramped or crowded. They also offer many unique decor options including wine barrels, wooden spools, etc. I could go on and on, but instead I just encourage you to go visit the venue and see for yourself! You will not be disappointed. Highly, highly recommend this venue. The owners are absolutely amazing and do everything they can to take care of you!

    Incredible Weekend

    Mitzi, Sam, Greg and Jake were all incredible hosts. We had such a good time having our wedding here and they were super quick to jump in and help with anything we needed. This place is stunning and very worth it. We booked before it was complete and it was the best decision we made! The bridal suite is spacious and super cute while the grooms den is very nice. It has a poker table under the regular table and the boys loved it! Highly recommend!

    Absolutely Stunning!!!

    This venue was absolutely a DREAM. I recommend it to anyone that loves a rustic look, it is just gorgeous. From the outside options to the inside, everything is designed to fit the rustic yet modern look. I have gotten so many compliments on the venue, it’s crazy! Not to mention the bridal suite is gorgeous!!! But to top off the looks of the venue, the owners are the sweetest people you could ever work with. They truly care about your day and want it to go as smooth as possible! They helped out so much during our event, and helped us keep track of last minute details. They are such a joy to work with and without them our day would not have gone as wonderful as it did. They also have a borrowed room FULL of decorations you can use for free, I barely had to buy any decor!! Whippoorwill Acres is truly a gorgeous, spacious venue with many options for the look you are wanting, and the owners you will work with are just as amazing. You will not regret choosing this venue!

    Mitzi and her husband have been a dream to work with! When I was looking for a venue, I had a list of questions a mile long. Mitzi really took the time to answer every question that I had. She made me feel like she cared about my wedding and that it was not just another event for her. Whippoorwill Acres is a beautiful rustic venue that will leave all of your guests in awe. The time and love that this family has put into the building, is truely inspiring and I recommend this wonderful venue for any event you may have.

    Whippoorwill is where it's at.

    I highly recommend Whippoorwill Acres! The space is gorgeous, inside and out. It's a family run business which I think makes it even more special. The Shipleys are great people, very patient, kind and eager to make your day as perfect as possible. This venue is a great space for celebrations of any kind and is a wonderful addition to our small town community.
