    GREAT people and amazing venue! So beautiful!

    The venue is absolutely beautiful, it’s so great how much you get out of the packages they offer. All the decorations that Michelle has to include by your request. It made our day so special and everything look so beautiful in the barn. One thing I would recommend though is to get a wedding coordinator or at least a day of coordinator to help and be sure all your wishes come true the day of. It’s way to much for the bride to remember with everything else going on. I ended up forgetting some important details because it was to much for me to remember on top of everything else on my big day. Otherwise it was an amazing experience! Great team at wishing well barn and beautiful venue!

    I feel like I need to clarify that your wedding actually took place at a church that is a separate location. I totally agree that a wedding coordinator would have been an asset to you.

    This was my Grandaughters wedding Mauch/Fleming. I have trouble walking and was surprised that a service is not noted. A golf Cart was provided for the long walk out to area where the marriage was preformed. Thank you

    I cannot say enough good things about Michelle at Wishing Well Barn. Bottom line is she truly wants you to have the day exactly the way you want. She stays busy (she’ll do a wedding every night of the weekend) but when you meet with her she stays focused on you. We wanted a cozy but elegant atmosphere where our guest would be comfortable and allow themselves to have fun. Her venue fit that vibe perfectly. She does all the décor herself with her team and she makes it feel heavenly. For us, she made wedding planning easy because she does everything under her. She coordinates everyone (DJ, caterer, photographer) so you essentially get a wedding planner as bonus when you book at wishing well barn because she handles everything. Her venue is definitely worth checking out and Michelle is definitely worth meeting. She books up early so go look as early as possible (we book 1 year, 4 months out for a Saturday). Most importantly, I feel like she provides such a good value with all of the services she offered. We shopped around numerous similar venues and I know we got the best value at Wishing Well. Go visit, you will love it!

    The venue was beautiful on my wedding day. Michelle is constantly improving her site and adding new elements to ensure every bride has exactly what she envisioned. She has a great group of people on her team. I would recommend this site to everyone!

    Wedding date of 1/16/16 is open if anyone would like to get married on such a unique number combination! My wedding didn't work out as anticipated, but my loss is your gain!

    Let me start off by saying that my wedding turned out WONDERFUL!! Despite the little rain that we had after the ceremony everyone was able to mingle under the barn for cocktail hour while we did pictures. Pictures were limited due to trying to keep cover. Michelle is very creative and does well with directing. Things went smoothly as far as I could tell. We were actually ahead of schedule due to limited pictures so cocktail hour was cut short and we moved right along like it was planned that way. There were some ups and downs along the way in the communication department. For ALL up coming brides/grooms please make sure to schedule your rehearsal ahead of time with Michelle, it is NOT understood to be the day before like I was thinking. This is my first marriage so I wasn't aware to confirm that nor was it explained. Due to this little hick-up some prearranged plans for kegs to be delivered had to be rearranged, on our dollar, due to another wedding taking place on the day before ours (thinking this was our rehearsal day) before finding out I had to schedule one, last minute. Regardless, my day turned out PERFECT in my eyes and Michelle and her staff ROCKED the day of despite my worries. All the décor and placement of games and activities were great! My guests raved about the venue and had a blast!!!

    He venu is beautiful but the owners are very strict about the volume of the music. I thought a reception was supposed to be a party type atmosphere not a library. And one of the staff members seemed very angry the whole evening and even made a few sarcastic comments toward the vendors.

    Lied to us about holding pricing for two weeks. Very unprofessional. Did not return my numerous phone calls and texts. Did not care at all. So disappointing. Beware!

    Wishing Well Barn, Inc.'s reply:

    In response to this review I informed this client that another client had already paid the "Save the Date" for the date she wanted, but had not signed his contract yet. She insisted on waiting to see if the couple would fail to sign their contract for the date. They signed their contract. Then, she wanted to inquire about another date using the price quote for the original date. She had known about the second date and she did not reserve that date during the two week period she had available to do so. We changed our prices while she was waiting in keeping with our corporate business plan. By the time she wanted to switch to the second date (new inquiry) our pricing structure had changed and the two week period on our original quote had expired. It's unfortunate that she did not feel we handled this fairly. This policy is stated in writing on our fee sheet. We wish her the best of luck in finding another venue that meets her needs. We value all of our clients and try to offer competitive and affordable services. Our venue, even after the pricing change, continues to be far below our closest competitor with flexibility and customer care that are the main reasons we have so few dates left available.
