THE INSIDE SCOOP

Why I love this venue: First, this is the most immaculate barn venue you will ever see. Seriously, not a spec of dust anywhere. The owners put their heart and soul into their venue! Second, I love their outdoor spaces! In the front of the barn there is a large lawn space surrounded by trees, giving their entrance a private feel, and the back of the barn has a second lawn space for outdoor ceremonies and a covered area with fire pits. For summer weddings, you can’t beat these spaces for guests to mingle and enjoy a beautiful day outdoors.

One piece of advice: If you want an outdoor feel without the worry of rain, you can keep the ceremony inside and open the barn doors behind you. The view looks over the back patio and fields and makes for a beautiful backdrop.
