What Others Said About This Venue

We were guests at this venue and were very impressed. The food was probably the best we have ever had at a wedding. We were one of the last tables to be excused to get our food which typically means dried-out meat and subpar veggies but not here. Every single dish was amazingly fresh and perfectly cooked. Our entire table kept saying how good the food was. The appetizers were very yummy and the staff kept everything well stocked. Lots of smiles from the staff. Well done Jorgensen.

We had such an amazing time at this venue! Our wedding guests could not stop raving about how great the food was, how nice the staff was, and how beautiful the barn was. The staff made us feel so comfortable and were so friendly. Tori was such a wonderful planner and we couldn’t imagine our perfect day being anywhere else in the world! – Keiko Talley via Google reviews.

Went to a wedding here. It was beautiful! Perfect for indoor or outdoor locations. The staff was great, and quickly transformed the room from wedding to reception, while guests had appetizers & pics taken. – Laura Telfer via Google reviews.

BEAUTIFUL venue! I attended a wedding here. The grounds were beautiful, there is a big pond on the property with swans. Nice outside space for an outdoor wedding, seating was large heavy wooden pews, that were sitting on concrete. There was a sidewalk that came from the indoor venue clear down between the pews and stopped in front of a pergola with a chandelier in the center. The indoor venue was also very nice. Rustic like a barn, but with an eclectic flair. – Karla Hazel via Google reviews.
